(US/tx) The perks and problems of being a vegan
- [Texas A&M The Battalion - opinion]
As of Monday, my month-long vegan challenge ended. For the past four
weeks I went without eating any animal products, except for
Thanksgiving when I had a moment of weakness. I was able to go without
eating my staple food items, like eggs and the occasional fillet of
salmon, and noticed differences in the way my body felt.
Although I had done research on what to eat to maintain energy and
stay healthy, about two weeks in I noticed how tired I was, probably
from what I wasn’t including in my diet anymore. But I soon got back
on the bandwagon and made sure I was eating all that I needed to.
So now I thought I’d share what I did and didn’t like about this
First off, I know I’ve said this before, but I loved my new sense of
will power. It was so easy to pass up on the tasty treats that I would
usually think about eating for half an hour, eat three times the
amount I should and then regret it afterward because I was so full
that I felt sick. I don’t think there have been any days these past
month when I felt like that, even though I often find myself eating
out of boredom.
