I am now in Day Three of a 28-Day challenge, for animal product free diet.
I do this periodically, as I start to feel yucky from consuming too much meat. Personally, I feel better when I eat lots of fruits and vegetables and view the animal products as a garnish, and not the main event.
I am not opposed to eating meat, I just feel better when I eat less.
Yes, I get lots of protein and yes I get plenty of calories. BTW, In general we eat too much protein.
With that said, I had a little bit of duck, a piece of shrimp and a skewered piece of beef yesterday at a celebration with friends. I did not over eat and was satisfied with the taste of the meat. Today, I resumed my eating style with a bowl of fresh pineapple.
I feel wonderful!!!!!!

My challenge premised from his suggestion for a 28-day challenge, and the fact that. I have felt like I am in a slump. Trying to shake things up a bit, and make positive changes.
