First things first; Thank you Alicia. Thank you for enlightening me about this wonderful lifestyle. And thank you for helping me to no longer smell. When I set out on this journey, I never intended to go up against my longtime nemesis, Body Odor, but I did and I won! I've always been an animal lover. Once when I was a teenager I sobbed hysterically after accidentally rolling a ball over a ladybug. Yet, in spite of my extreme sensitivity to animals, I dutifully ate my meat and dairy. I always told myself it was the "circle of life" and as humans we were meant to be omnivores. But after becoming aware of slaughterhouse atrocities, I knew I had to change. First, I committed myself to only purchasing free-range meat. Then, I became a vegetarian. Finally, I read "The Kind Diet" and was enthralled. I devoured every word. Finally, the lightbulb switched on in my head, and my brain screamed "VEGANISM!" I had discovered the literature that was finally able to turn me off to pizza and ice cream. Formerly, two of my hardest to resist foods, and I no longer wanted them. I kept thinking about Alicia's story of that poor mother cow searching for and suckling her calf . It was just too moving to ignore. For our planet, our health, and our animals; I now truly belief that this lifestyle is the answer. And as an added bonus... my smelly body odor has finally flown away. It was bad, so bad that family would gently point it out to me. "Yeah, yeah.. I know, but there's nothing I can do about it," was always my response. I was embarrassed, but had resigned myself to live with it. Within weeks of becoming a vegan that all changed. My husband and I both began noticing a difference in my natural scent immediately, and I definitely attribute that to my diet change. So to all my fellow body odor strugglers out there, go vegan!!
