Lifestyle changes aren't easy....

Monday, February 22, 2016

This is my son and he is almost 21yr old. Around a year ago, he decided that for his health, he would go vegetarian. He did some research and at first did really well, but gradually drifted toward the snacky, fast food end of the Veg spectrum. I reminded him that changing your diet for health reasons isn't good if you eat chips, fries, and eggs all the time. As he played around with being Vegetarian, he was researching the Vegan lifestyle. Within the last month, he went Vegan, and it has been a difficult change. Eating out is really hard for him, and he has had to learn how to cook his food at home and carry it with him alot. It doesn't help that no one else in the family is Vegan or interested in going Vegan. I guess my point is that all lifestyle change is hard...especially if it's truly a permanent change and not temporary. You have to change the habits you have and be dedicated to not go back to where you were before.
