Anyone pretty much vegan?
My diet is the most restrictive perhaps of anyone. Besides the usual suspects meat is my trigger even fish. One hit and i just want to continue to devour and rip meat with my teeth for sport it seems. Its never enough. Eggs makes me want more as well. Im a FA first and type 2 diabetic second. I dont believe in medicating my disease when i can cure it with food. This looks like a diet of raw greens, chia/flax seeds, lemon,lime,grapefruit, sprouts, and non starchy veggies. I pray i can sustain this. Its food but it doesnt seem like it, the taste is no where near what gets me off/high/drugged. Im also not doing salt mainly for vanity reasons...dont want the puffy face. I would like to connect with anyone else that has to make drastic changes in food choices as well. Thankyou. Also any encouragement is highly welcomed, i dont have a support system at all. Thanks again.
There are people in FAA who are eating a plant based food plan! And it's working just fine for them.
They say they start the day with a green smoothie. One person told me that hers is all green plants. I have made them with a cup of water, 2 or 3 small ribs of celery, chopped pear, 2 large hands full of baby spinach and it tasted much better than it looked!
I like to put lentils on a large salad at lunch time. I also found some pea sprouts recently at the grocery and they were delicious on my salad.
The vegans I know are on the West Coast and can be found by going to the late evening phone meetings.
Best of luck in your recovery.
Thankyou...ive been feeling alot of anger cos i feel no one is there when i reach out. So i apprechiate your response that much more

Maybe we could share our food choices.
I like edamame but too much soy isn't good I hear.
