I hope when you are reading this you are ready to embark a new journey and realize that today, at this very moment, you have a fresh start on life. It is never too late to begin a new healthy lifestyle!
Before I was vegan, boy, did I LOVE LOVE LOVE junk food!!! All I could eat!!! I was obsessed! All my life I struggled with my weight. Gained, lost, gained, lost and gained again.
All throughout my teenage years I tried every diet there was out there from Slim Fast, to just eating cereal all day to the Atkins diet, you name it, I did it! I even did the baby food diet!!! I can’t! Aghhh!!!
Now that I am a bit wiser when it comes to food and healing, I realized that the reason I struggled with my weight was due to family issues and most importantly, what I was putting in my body.
I lived in Texas for a few years and when I arrived I was super skinny and when I left I had gained triple the weight. How could I not? I was eating bad food all the time! I lived at Whataburger and had the nerve to Whatasize the
meals! Everyone at Cici’s Pizza knew me! I would eat 3 pies all by myself. YES, that’s right, 3 whole pies! White Pizza, Barbecue Pizza and Pepperoni Pizza! I had nooo problem eating all 3 plus dessert!!! My own friends who were born and raised there couldn’t even believe how much I could eat! I have a stomach ache now just thinking about it!
When I moved back to NYC I realized I had to do something about my weight, I shed a few pounds just from walking in NY but I was still overweight. Working in the entertainment industry only put more pressure to lose weight and I became more stressed out. I started thinking I was eating healthier because instead of eating 3 pies of pizzas I was only eating 2 slices of pizza a week. Working crazy hours and traveling the world was just hard to pay attention to my eating habits.
I started getting bad feelings every time I ate. Like if something was wrong. I couldn’t pin point it but I knew it had to do with what I was placing inside my body. Then one day I watched a video about how the animals are slaughtered just so we can eat meat and dairy. I couldn’t stop crying and realized that I could never touch meat again. At that very moment I ended my journey with meat. I instantly became a vegetarian and within 3 months and I became vegan.
I was so fascinated with my new journey and even more baffled not only about the weight I lost, but how much energy I had and how great I felt just after 3 weeks being vegan! Was incredible!
Fast forward to today, I LOVE my vegan and gluten-free lifestyle! After years of researching veganism and helping friends and clients transition into a vegan lifestyle, I am happy to say that vegans now have much more options
when it comes to vegan products and restaurants!
I will teach you how to simply switch from a meat-centered diet to a plant-based diet and still enjoy the luxury and taste of food! I am also welcoming other vegans to share some of their yummy vegan recipes!
Remember you are what you eat!!!
