In Response To: Identity crisis (Lost)
Like you, my entire lifestyle revolved around my
vegetarianism. When people asked how I stayed so
lean and healthy-looking, I boasted, "I'm a vegan,
and have tons of energy to exercise." Then after
6 years, my health began to decline, but I was still
convinced my vegan diet would preserve my
health. Not so. I was only 30 and began to age
quickly. Not until I saw myself in a photograph at
age 36 did it slap me in the face that I was beginning
to look as lousy as I felt. I persisted with my
diet for one more year until I dropped to 95 lbs.,
began having multiple system problems much worse
than before, and worst of all, I looked like a
wraith and felt like 90 instead of 38.
I began the O diet last summer, and with some tailoring
to my particular situation, my skin has regained
its color, my hair is growing back without the gray,
and best of all, my vigor is slowly, slowly returning.
Moral: You are the best, real, beautiful
type O to visualize.
P.S. If your vegetarianism was ethical, try to
imagine the native American philosophy of blessing
the creatures whose spirtits and traits are becoming
part of your body. I know, it takes a while to
alleviate the guilt and rationalize after years of
conditioning, but when it comes to survival...
Wishing you well.
