I gave you the background of my story so you can understand, I know what it feels like to be on both ends of the eating healthy spectrum. I've been on diets, exercised like crazy, and stopped eating meat for some time, but nothing had more of an impact on me mentally and physically like taking away meat and heavy processed foods.
After having my son and being 75 pounds overweight, I am not only challenging myself, I am getting healthy and being eco-friendly while doing it. What is different now is the research I have jumped into. Knowing that farm fed animals like pigs, cows, and chickens that are naturally herbivores, are being fed animal parts, blood, plastic, and injected with not only hormones, but agents that develop cancer, tumors, et cetra is a little unsettling to me.
What freaks me out more is the Genetically Modified Foods that the government says is okay to feed to its nation and not let people know they are eating products that are man-made in a laboratory and not through Mother Nature. What do I mean by this: cloning, yes it is not science fiction. Cloning is real and is done to animals to increase profits. Mother Nature takes months to breed and create a living animal, a genetically modified animal takes minutes.
So why have I stopped eating meats, its not only for my health it is for ethical reasons too. The information I am continuously finding out is mind wrenching and wrong in my opinion. Stay up to date with me and I will let you know what I have learned.
