I've been on a total vegetarian diet for almost a week and have been feel especially optimistic, grateful and have more patience toward my kids lately. Not something I expected. Having allergies (mold, flared up by dairy) and an autoimmune disease leads to feeling bad a lot. I guess it's easier to be optimistic if I'm feeling better from a healthier diet. Anyone else experience this?

I experienced this as well. I think for me it was a bit different though, more related to emotion than health. I've been having a rough time for the past few years, and doing something that was good not only for me, but for the animals and environment as well has really brightened my outlook.<br><br>

Don't get me wrong I still have joint pain and fatigue due to the Behcet's, but I feel more well. Maybe I was eating stuff that messed with my blood sugar. I used to eat a lot of carbs from granola bars (sugary), crackers and such. Probably not good for hypoglycemia. I'm curious to hear more feedback.

I have felt a lot better since I stopped eating meat as well. I felt guilty for the animals when I ate meat, and that might be it. But doing something healthy for yourself always should brighten your day. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
