I discovered that animal foods were unhealthy, I felt conflicted and worried when eating them and feeding them to my family.
I got sick often, felt tired and slow on most days. Digestion always felt like a chore.
Eating animal foods also gave me an ethical burden, how could I say I am an animal lover and still eat them?
I knew I needed to change for my body, mind and the animals I cared. But I didn't know where to start.
I was worried about nutrient deficiencies, getting ill and feeling even weaker.
If So, Let's Change It!
It all started 9 years ago around my 21st Birthday. I was like most University students, studying for a career that I was not 100% passionate in, and my time was closing in before I would join the rat race and work 9-5pm. Thankfully, 1 year prior to this, I became insanely interested in fitness, which led me to learn the basics about nutrition. Initally, I got into fitness to improve my physical apperance, but I also had problems that included bloating, gas, acne, constipation, stubborn tummy fat, gastric reflux, and constant R18+ nightmares, oh it was terrible! I was reading, reading and reading everything I could to learn more about nutrition, when I should of been focused on my Architecture Bachelor studies. 10 years later, I am glad I did, not only did my problems disappear, but I am now helping so many people transform their lives around! Oh one other added benefit, I am proud not to be working a 9:00am-5:00pm job, instead a 24 hr passion.
