Hi Everyone my name is Shelley and I am starting again for the second time to become a full fledged Vegan. The first time I started because I kept getting sick a lot and went to Dr Fuhrman "Eat to Live" for help. I felt it was my jumping off point even though I did not stay on it more than 6 months due to lack of knowledge or being able to make meals interesting. I felt the best I had ever felt during this brief period I lived as a Vegan. Once I stopped I got sicker and sicker only to be brought back when I saw Alicia's book and knew it was time. I started a week ago and already feel a difference. I hope to share my journey with many of you as well as learn from your experiences. So glad there is a place like "The KInd Life" to help support us all to an abundant, happy and healthy life. Thank you Alicia and all of you on this site for the support and encouragement you give so selflessly.
Welcome, Shelley, The Kind Diet works, as yesterday , accidently ate a product that contains milk, I should have read the label but didn't and had a bout with diahrrea. Been on the Kind Diet for a month and never felt sick, deprived, or anything as Alicia, says you will no longer need bathroom reading, and she is right. We should refer to her as Dr. Alicia. Glad you're here with us!!
hey there! i just stopped eating meat a week ago. im still doing dairy for now- one step at a time for me. this is a HUGE lifestyle change for me, hubby still eats meet, i cook all the meals, and i've never given up meat before. i stopped because of ethical reasons. im so afraid that im going to do this for a while, feel great, and then slip back and go back to the way i was. if i take it day by day im ok, but when i start to think of never having meat again its almost like i panic and start to feel totally overwhelmed. this website has been great though- im so glad we have it too!!!
Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. It's now day 19 and still no meat and have no desire at all for meat. Everytime I look at meat or think about it I just want to cry for all the pain these precious animals go through and to think I thought I was doing the right thing by buying organic free range. Never knowing until Alicia pointed the real truth out for me to see. I thank her for that. I am still having dairy (ice cream) it's a comfort crutch which I am trying like made to break. I do find though that when I first started I felt different, in a good way, almost right away but when I have any dairy at all I immediately get ill and gassy. UGH! I am trying to make things interesting and switching things up. I love Alicia's book but haven't finished it yet. I'm sure I'll be reading and re reading it again and again. I'm so grateful for the support and help all of you Kind Lifer's have offered it has been a huge help and comfort. I can't wait for the day I am completely VEGAN and then all my illnesses will be only a memory :) Glad to be here and thanks again for the great welcome.
