I didn't do well on the Vegan diet either...even after I had detoxed. It shouldn't take more than a month for you to detox normally. No one else can make arguments for why you feel that way because they aren't you. I personally was a vegetarian for years and had a close to vegan diet already...but when I went truly vegan, my body did not respond well. I know that certain people/ blood types and chemical makeups are just not a match for a vegan diet and that is ok. What I did get tired of, was people telling me all the reasons why I could be feeling horrible without accepting that maybe I just wasn't meant to be vegan. Some people aren't genetically set up to thrive on the vegan diet...and that is OKAY. Just eat what feels right for you and adjust your diet to a place where you still feel good and can be at peace with your choice. There is nothing wrong with eating what feels right to you and others shouldn't judge you for it.
I am really worried, i've started being a vegan 26 days ago, and i noticed after two weeks that my leg and arm muscles have become weaker and weaker. I eat a lot of beans and vegetables, and grains and still it has become so bad that I am not able to open a water bottle or my toothpaste. Is this a sign of a detox or am I missing some kind of vitamines/minerals? Because I am taking supplements
It seems that you are doing great eating vegan and supplementing with a little eggs, cheese and fish. Please, be kind to yourself and continue this for maybe another two months. Then try and cut out again to 100% vegan and see what happens.
Eating vegan should feel good for your body, if the body does not accept this way of eating - make up your own variation, dont rely entirely on the experience of other people. Eventually you will find your way if you listen to the body.
I don´t see why anyone should be genetically disposed not to be vegan.. you may be intolerant to some of the new foods you introduce while cutting out animal products, but then you can still look for the suitable foods within the new range. it´s huge- I guess everyone who keeps researching recipes and food stores is surprised how many things are out there you just didn´t eat before! but especially if you´re looking into macrobiotics which focuses on grains, legumes and veggies you will find the foods that our human race has been relying on for generations.. so it should do for us, too! diet is a personal matter, sure, but keep looking for your own vegan way! good luck!:-)
