    Went Vegan two years ago. Within 6 months went from over 200 lbs to 148. Changed my eating habits because I wanted to avoid Doctors and perscriptions. Best thing I have done! I have avoided taking 3 medications my doctors told me I needed. They gave me time to turn things around. This lifestyle change has been wonderful for me. I now run 5k’s and 10k’s. By the way I’m 50 years old! My family is slowly making the change too!

    I started off vegetarian last year and segued into veganism after Christmas. Wow! I went from 150 lbs to under 130 and still losing weight. I bought new jeans last week and it looks like I’ll have to buy smaller clothes again pretty soon. The family is vegan now (the kid’s not happy but ma knows best). Anyway, I eat all I want and all I want is fruit, veggies, whole grains and legumes. Mmmm. I never thought I could give up meat but it was easy, used to love milk and now the thought makes me sick, and cheese was the last to go. I can’t imagine eating any of that garbage anymore. Go vegans!
