Week 14 of My Vegan Journey
It’s getting better and better!
I just had my annual physical with the same doc that I have been seeing for ten years. Her name is Dr. Michele Kettles and she is one of the partners at The Cooper Clinic in Dallas, TX.
When I saw Dr. Kettles earlier this week, she told me that my lab results were even better than before (and she has always told me that my numbers were always good).
But they got even better since going vegan!
And my weight was down about four pounds and I was not even trying! I would say that going vegan has gotten me to my absolute ideal weight!
I saw my lab results on Dr. Kettles’ monitor but I do not have them in front of me. As soon as I get my printed results I will share them with you. But suffice it to say that our overall health absolutely correlates to what goes into our bodies. I am just another tiny bit of proof in the big picture that a plant based whole foods diet is a big deal! Food matters.
I would like to take a moment to mention a few of my friends who have been reading my posts and listening to my Slice Your Age podcast who have connected with me and my message. The following people have told me that they have gone vegan or are at least VERY close.
Dr. Lori Cockley
Linda Burstyn (95%)
Denise Hyde (95%)
This makes me so incredibly proud, I cannot put it into words! And countless others have contacted me to say they are listening to the message very closely and are seriously considering it.
Congratulations to the four of you and to anyone else who is trying. If you should be on the list above, but for some reason I missed you, please message me.
If I may be of any help in any way, please email me at SliceYourAge@gmail.com or message me on Facebook.
Vegans seem to be some of the kindest people I have ever met. In general, they really care about the environment. There is simply so much positive energy when you are around this group. It’s not about money, materialism, competing with others, etc. It’s about health, caring and compassion. I don’t know about you but these are the type of people that I like to hang with.
One of the most common things I hear from others is that going vegan will be difficult or inconvenient. I beg to differ with those statements. It is easy!
You just need to care. Once you care, the rest is simple.
Someone said to me the other day: “But I NEED my cheese.”
Truth is, you do not NEED your cheese. It is full of bad fats and cholesterol. If you “NEED” your cheese, you may need your statins as well. And please do not forget about the suffering and death of the innocent animals.
There are some vegan cheeses that rival the taste of any secretion from cows. Believe me, they are delicious!
If animals matter to you and if you believe that we should not impose any unnecessary suffering on them, then you are just about there. You just need to take that next step and not eat them. How may I help?
