Connect with vegetarian and vegan friends from all over the world.
I tried to go vegetarian a few times in 2009-2011, gave up by March 2011.
2012, I wanted to try it, but was yet to find the moment to make it happen. Late that year, I grew sick of eating meat (as my family I was staying with ate more meat than my parents), joined a vegetarian page on Facebook and did my research before going vegetarian while staying with family (non-vegetarian).
This time (September 2012) I made sure I got it right and while my appetite and food intake increased, my body felt much better real quick. A month later I donated "veggie blood" and have done so a few times since and continue to enjoy being vegetarian since
I originally made the change to Vegetarian about 3 weeks ago to help with a lot of health problems regarding my bowels and intestines.. I did a lot of reading about how plant based diets can really help with digestion and thought I would give it a try. Coincidentally my girlfriend and I watched Vegucated which is all about having a vegan lifestyle and it showed how animals are treated .. something I never realized but after seeing the truth of how animals are being treated in factory farms I decided that living a vegetarian lifestyle was the best option for me! I think eventually I will go Vegan because I don't like eggs and I am lactose intolerant so cheese isn't really something I can have.
Truly the last three weeks I have felt better then ever before!
