Welcome

Glad you're here. 

First, set aside your current affiliations. We all have assumptions about what is healthy, and what isn't. In order to learn and grow, we have to be willing to let go of our current beliefs.

 

"Dismissal without investigation is a recipe for ignorance." - Rich Roll

 

If you're here, then it's likely that your current diet isn't working. Perhaps you are facing a severe illness or just lacking energy or focus. If you're following your approach, then it's worth asking which of your assumptions might be wrong.

That is where I was when I discovered the plant based approach. I had spent a lifetime searching for a diet that would leave me feeling great, lean and healthy.  Atkins, Zone, Perfect Health Diet, Paleo, and on and on. 

As a layperson, how are we to know what to do? Every week a new diet emerges as the frontrunner with scores of success stories and vehement testimonials clogging the comments section. Diet is incredibly personal, but let's set aside tribalism for a moment.

Until diet is a universally settled topic, we will have to go for a bit of experimentation and discipline. If you're game for that, give the plant based way a try for a week or two. Not much to lose.  You can always go back to what you're doing. If it fails you, then at least you'll know it isn't for you.

Onward.
