Don’t ask me why – there’s no good reason. For me, attempting to move to a Vegan diet is silly. It’s silly because I don’t have the knowledge, time nor patience to stick with it and correctly execute it.
The best reasons I can come up with for even trying it are:
– wanting to challege my own ‘will power’
– watching “Super Size Me”
So it’s been a week now and I feel… weak 😛
But I haven’t given up like I thought I would. I can’t believe I haven’t eaten chocolate in a week!! Previously that would have been unheard of for me.
I think I will try and stick with it for a while longer and do my best to improve my diet while I’m at it.
This little experiment may not last but hopefully I’ll come out of it with a better understanding of my own nutrient requirements (and hopefully not an excessive lack of iron!).
Without all the sugars and meats I ate previously my riding feels slower. It’s taken the edge off a little bit and I run out of steam quicker but I can still fend off a few roadies whilst out on the singlespeed! 😉
