As a member in the gym, nutrition is key. One thing we are always informed is you cannot outrun a bad diet! Even as I worked as a trainee horse riding instructor it was always important to inform my clients to eat well and encourage a balanced diet.
So what is a balanced diet? Well , we are told we need a balance of meat , fish , poultry , dairy , fruits , nuts, veg and so on , but when we look at statistics how true is it ? Did our ancestors really NEED all this food 100 years ago ! ?
I recently , in the last month or so , have changed my diet and lifestyle to vegan after watching “Meet your Meat” on youtube , I will post the link but please be aware this may not be for the faint hearted but if you want to continue to purchase these animal made products you might as well know exactly what you are supporting by doing so. I now no longer buy, eat or use animal products, yes that includes chocolate, unless its dairy free I wont eat it! Since doing so , my fitness levels have noticeably improved along with my energy levels, I have dropped around six pounds so far and I feel great!!
I decided to make this blog because I am so shocked by the amount of people that are not supportive of my new change . At first I questioned why but the answer was pretty clear , why is it that we numb ourselves to the pain and suffering that occurs behind closed doors? Or in this case factory walls, we turn a blind eye and would rather pretend it is not there than face reality, the answer is simple because it’s easier than dealing with the issue , no this does not make it OK but when you don’t pay it any attention you don’t have to deal with the guilt that it causes . Humans are compassionate by nature , but from culture we have become desynthesized to the cruelty being perpetrated in these industries.
I just want to make people aware, it is your choice what you put into your body , I do not want to force my beliefs or opinions on anybody because everyone is entitled to they’re own , I am just here to tell the truth which is how these animals are treated for the sake of your bacon and eggs , the conditions they are kept in on these factory farms and the suffering they are experiencing . I want to speak for those who can’t speak themselves. What you do with this truth is entirely up to you.
Slavery is slavery and murder is murder just because it is a different species does not change the definition.
I am new to this vegan lifestyle so any support and tips you guys might have would be amazing, also new to blogging, so comments, constructive criticism, and suggestions on what you want to know would be appreciated!
