How I became a vegan
It all started 5-6 years ago. One of my close person fell ill (I will not specify who, because I did not ask for consent to the story about it). Doctors could not help cure the disease completely and offered to do the operation. After studying a lot of information. It turned out that the way we eat very much affects our health (I mean whether we eat meat or other animal products). As a result, this man gave up animal food and became a vegan. Initially, I was skeptical about this. I went in for sports and the traditional sports diet necessarily included meat. But over time, I saw how this man's health improves after switching to vegan food. And I decided to try it on myself.
After a while I noticed how much better I began to feel. It was a feeling of lightness. Many said that when playing sports, you must eat meat. BUT NO! After switching to vegetarianism, and later on veganism, it wasn't harder to train and the results did not become worse! Just need to properly make up your diet. Several times we tried a medical starvation. The results have surpassed all expectations (if there are questions about this ask in the comments).
Despite my example, people with whom I train together continue to be skeptical about vegetarianism and felt that this is not right. Over time, some of them began to notice how they affect their state of health as to what and how much they eat. Many people noticed that if they do not eat meat for a while, they begin to feel better, but still continue to eat it later.
I did not want to persuade anybody. I believe that everyone should make a similar choice consciously. As a result, I have been vegan for more than 4 years. When I first started, I basically thought about how it would affect my health. Over time, I began to think about animals, how they are kept and eventually killed. I do not like it. But it will take a long time for the consciousness of people to change. That people understand that you can live without meat, that you do not need to wear fur or clothes made of leather.
And the most important thing! The state of health of my close person has improved.
