It’s been 21 days since I went vegan.
I thought it would be a lot harder but it’s not as bad as I thought. Having my parents cook for me (which they always do) has been extremely helpful.
The one thing that keeps me going on this diet is that I know it’s for the better. Short term pain for long term gain.
Noticeable differences on the Vegan Diet
My hands were always red, dry and wrinkly. But since going vegan, the non-affected areas of my hands and fingers seem to have a certain glow. Hoping it’s a matter of time before I see the same on the affected areas.
My digestion has been smooth whenever I have to go but I don’t go as frequently as I thought I would.
The first week since going vegan, I was passing a lot of gas but that seems to have decreased.
My chest and shoulders were also always inflamed and extremely dry but now it’s much softer and less red. It’s still irritated but it seems to be calming down.
Unfortunately I’ve had a few episodes of itching at night even though I ate clean. I’m going to assume that it’s part of the detox process and nothing more but will monitor the itching and triggers.
I think I have also finally adjusted mentally to going vegan. I don’t miss the old foods I cut out but I did think about them time to time haha! I also went to the gym for the first time without taking any pre-work out and protein powder. Felt weird but it’s just an adjustment period.
Interested in healing through nutrition?
I’ve tried a lot of treatments and diets in the past, so I decided why not give the vegan diet a try.
The key is to keep trying something until it works!
I highly recommend staying on the vegan diet for at least 3 months to start seeing the benefits.
