So it’s been just over a week since I stopped eating like a hardcore vegan gangbanger, and it appears my body doesn’t really care for the shitty food I use to eat, as much as it does for the all-natural garbage. I’ve also noticed that I’ve been craving naps again. I don’t think I took one the entire month I went vegan, but have taken at least 2 in the past week that I can think of. After doing some major computer hacking on google, it claims that it’s because your body becomes exhausted when it’s relearning how to process all the meats and processed goods I’m shoveling into my sculpted physique.
I haven’t been eating THAT bad though. I did go on a Taco Bell bender… I had some pizza… and I’ve had Dairy Queen once, that’s about it though. Mainly I’ve just been eating the same awesome vegan goods, and then added in tuna fish, and a couple eggs on the morning. I still haven’t went back to much dairy, and I really don’t think I will. I LOVE almond milk. The fact that its less fat, calories, more calcium, and fills me up is just an added bonus. Still not willing to give up on cheese though, since it’s probably the best thing in the world, next to Taco Bell hot sauce.
I know how big of a condescending/hypocritical asshole I sound like by saying this, but I honestly think going vegan, even for just a month, would be beneficial for everyone. Going vegan really forces you to look at the food you’re eating, and how it is made. Along with that comes actually looking at the calorie and fat content of the shit you put in your mouth. As I proved in my own white-trash way, you can learn how to make delicious meals out of healthy products, learn how to use spices (properly), how to snack healthy, how to substitute unhealthy products for healthy ones, and basically how to be a total badass while doing it. Maybe normal people already do that shit, but most the people I know do not. The fact that I was able to drop 15 lbs in one month, just by changing my diet, and watching what I was eating, is ridiculous. I guess it just shocked me that what I was eating made such a huge difference in my weight… I thought I was a fat asshole cause I was lazy, not cause I enjoyed Taco Bell 7 days a week!
Overall I think this was a great project for me to undertake. I went into it looking for something to write about, to challenge myself, and most importantly, win a bet with a hipster asshole. I’m actually walking away with some actual knowledge, and have changed a lot of bad eating habits I’ve picked up over the years, so I guess I should be happy about that. I’m currently trying to figure out what I want to undertake for my next 30 day challenge, any ideas are welcome. In the meantime, I’ll probably just post a lot of nonsense, and bitch about annoying people. What else is new?
