Okay, that’s enough talking about myself in third person…
I first became a vegan at the age of 17. Being young and naive though, it wasn’t long until I fell for the classical lies that prevent many from changing to the healthiest, environmentally friendly, and ethical lifestyle. Veganism.
I was soon swamped and buried with pessimism on why my eating habits were going to present a problem.
“Where do you get your protein from?”
“Don’t you only get omega-3 from fish?”
“You can’t even drink milk, aren’t you going to get osteoporosis?”
The onslaught was endless. It wasn’t long until my beliefs and certainty were eroded and I went back to the classical and accepted western diet.
Enter the Dark Ages of my life. I was fat, depressed, unmotivated, hangry; I had become the epitome of what a Western-Style diet can do to a person.
This all changed when I was climbing a mountain in my local area. I was only 1/4 of the way up. I was on my 7th break. My legs were wobbly and my lungs burned like a furnace. I could still see my car at the bottom. An old couple had passed me 10 minutes ago. Did I mention I was only 20?
It was there that I realised I had the power to change this. From that moment on I was going to be armed with the knowledge I needed to live a healthy, nutritionally balanced, compassionate lifestyle. It was time to regain control of my life.
I want to say that I stood up and climbed the rest of the mountain… But then I would be a liar. What I did do though was get back to my car, drive home, and enrol into a Nutritional Science degree.
Fast forward 4 years later and I am now a qualified Vegan Nutritionist, at your service. Never again will I listen to shoddy science from well meaning people. Never again will I believe something just because the masses say so.
And neither should you.
