During the last part of 2011 and all of 2012 up until this past weekend I have been toying with the idea of vegetarianism and veganism. I was for most of that time what can be defined as a Pescatarian (pescetarian) with a few attempts into vegetarianism and a couple of tries at veganism. I have also had a few trips to the restaurant where I ate a little beef or pork but for the most part I have been incredibly close to the text book definition of Pescatarian, basically I also had white meat not fish.
Now last week I noticed was tired and ran out of energy rather quickly and wanted a nap by 10:00 in the morning (which is not a good thing to do at work) and realized that this had been going on for a while. Also I pretty much did not feel all that good. Last weekend I said the heck with it and decided that I would once again be what humans are?.Omnivores.
I have had more energy and felt much better this week than I have in a long time. I also have the drive to exercise and it is not a chore like it has been of late
Now I am not saying that vegetarians or vegans feel bad (meaning not healthy) and I am not saying that vegetarianism or Veganism is bad?. I know a Vegan that is incredibly healthy and a Yoga teacher/therapist and I have vegetarians in my family that are incredibly healthy too.
I guess all I can say I learned from this is that being a vegetarian and even more so a Vegan is incredibly complicated as it applies to diet to get all the things you need in a diet. I have also learned that I am no good at keeping track of such things and that it is so much easier for me to be an Omnivore.
Now if you will excuse me I am going to go home and have some ham
