“If things start happening, don't worry, don't stew, just go right along and you'll start happening too.” ― Dr. Seuss
There are many reasons, but specially because it enhances my survival skills.
It’s funny, but every time I subscribe to a social network that asks me at some point which causes I support, the first thing which comes to my mind is FOOD. I support FOOD. What’s not to like about food? Everybody enjoys it. But for some reason that’s what we care less about as a society. And one thing I can tell you, nothing is going to change until we change our nutrition. We have no idea the impact food industry has. For real.
Update on my Raw Vegan challenge: total and utterly failed. I was feeling just fine until I got home and was getting ready for some strenght trainning, when suddenly started to feel really tired and I just couldn’t focus my mind at all. I jumped to the kitchen and thought “maybe I can be just vegetarian”, so I ate a slice of cheese and then another 5, then I ate chicken and then I thought “oh, whatever, let’s just be happy with some butter.” Now I’m happy, with tons of protein in my belly.
I am officially on a one week raw vegan challenge. Spending a whole life without even trying to be vegan even if for just a couple of days seems limited to me. I want to know how it feels. Maybe I won’t like it and feel tired all the time, or it could just turn out to be the best way of living for my body. All I know is that the answer won’t be there for me unless I do something about it.
And why have I decided to go on this challenge? The last couple of years, while doing reasearch on health and nutrition, there was a couple of myths which really upset me for being so so famous, specially among women who struggle with their body image.
Some “experts” may say coffee is good for you, some might even say that you should drink it daily to prevent neurological disorders, while some others may argue it’s bad for your health. Well, all I know is that quitting coffee has made wonders to my mood swings, energy and stress levels. My point is that, although I strongly advocate autodidacticism, at the end of the day it’s your body who knows best. Follow your gut. Be a body.
