If you want super fitness, a quality life, a vibrant appearance, and avoid or eliminate health problems by becoming a vegan you’ll find endless inspiration to do so in this article.
What it means to become a vegan
Becoming a vegan means that you start eating a 100% plant-based diet and stop eating all animal-based products including dairy and fish. (“Why fish? They are not animals.” you might say. Vegans don’t eat fish to avoid mercury, microplastics, and other pollutants. And the harmful additives in farmed fish.) This may sound daunting, but once you get the right information it will not be a problem. You’ll be super motivated!

If you are concerned about the cost of going vegan, in the Part 2 Introduction of his book “How Not To Die,” (my review) Dr. Greger does an outstanding job of explaining how the cost is much less than a meat-based diet and how the nutritional and health benefits are many times greater.
Ignore the naysayers who make fun of your unconventional diet by remembering what you’ve learned from the above material. Being a vegan means being a non-conformist, which is smart in this and many other cases.
I watched the inspiring documentary Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead by chance last night. It’s been a number of years since I first saw it. Being much more educated today on the pivotal role of diet on our health, I was even more blown away by the ignorant reasons people gave for eating incredibly unhealthy food. Reasons like (paraphrased): “I’m going to live to the fullest by eating what I want.” “If I die early because of my diet, at least I’ll enjoy my life until the end.” “Fast food is addicting.” “I’m too weak.” Most of the individuals who made these statments were fat. One of them just had heart surgery — likely because of his diet. Another had a heart attack during the course of making the documentary. Here’s the truth. Eating a plant-based vegan diet greatly enhances the quality of your life by greatly improving your health and by greatly reducing the likelihood of getting heart disease, cancer, and other illnesses.
Begin the journey of becoming a vegan and get super healthy, fit, and attractive.
