Hi everyone!<br><br>
I was a vegan in my teens when i lived in Alabama. I lost lots of weight and felt good, but as time went on as I grew up and lost track of things and had bouts of depression and before I knew if I was eating everything and over weight. I married and now live in NY.<br><br>
I have been doing the Atkins diet the past few months off and on. To be honest is is just sickening. I honestly dont think God intended for us to eat that amount of fat, it just can t be healthy. It really effected me because I had to stop eating the fruit I loved and the veggies I loved had to be limited.<br><br>
Just thinking about being a vegetarian makes me feel better and more harmonious with nature.<br><br>
I also feel I need to get rid of the "fate food", I have been eating way to much of it.<br><br><br><br>
Well thats my story....so far. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/penguin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":nigel:">
