Understanding Veganism And A Vegan Diet And Making The Switch
Making The Switch To A Vegan Diet Gradually And The Best Foods To Eat
People make the transition to a vegan diet differently. Without knowing I would end up being a dietary vegan, I began cutting meat out of my diet through the years. First I removed pork from my diet when I was 13, then beef at 16, then poultry, and then finally fish and dairy before I adopted a vegan diet.
My transition took along time, but it wasn’t spurred on by the motivation to become vegan. Maybe it was just part of my path that I was to stumble on Dr. Sebi’s methodology on healing which finally was able to give me the health I was seeking through my adopting a vegan diet.
Whether you can make the transition overnight or if you need to make the transition gradually, the point is “just do it.”
If you make the transition gradually the key is to reduce the portions of meat, dairy, and processed food you consume while you increase the fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, whole grains, and legumes you consume.
You can gradually make the transition by cutting down on the number of days you consume meat products during the week. You may decide to start by not eating meat on “Meatless Mondays.” You can then add in Thursday, then one day out of the weekend, and continue until you have stopped consuming animal-products and processed food completely.
One thing to remember is that if you slip up it is not a big deal. Just accept that you didn’t do exactly what you wanted to accomplish and then continue the routine you are building.
Don’t be hard on yourself and view your transition as a journey and not a destination. When you enjoy and learn from the journey you end up getting to where you want to get to much faster and easier.
