Vegetarian.....Need some advices!

Hi,

It's been a while since I wrote here. I was already a kind of vegetarian.... I didn't eat meat (beef, chicken or pig) but I still ate fish, eggs, milk, cheese, etc.

Little by little I started to read a lot about the rights of the animals and pollution so I became a vegetarian more strict or radical.... Right now I don't eat meat or any animal product....I still eating eggs because I have 3 hens :) And I tried to eat yogurt or cheese 3 or 4 times per week.

I'm really convinced about the animals suffering and when I was teenager I was vegetarian for 3 years. But now I'm scared because I don't want to interfere with my recovery.

I know that I'm not recovered....I'm still working on it, but I don't restrict anymore my "binge" food and it's been 8 months since I purged the last time!

I think I'm in the good path but I don't know if restricting Cheese and milk is bad to me.

Somebody has an advice??

Thanks :)

Hi there. I'm a vegan, so I

Hi there. I'm a vegan, so I don't eat any dairy or meat, so I don't think there is any harm in restricting those things, but you have to make sure you don't skimp on protein. I have a proteins smoothie most days with a vegan proteins mix, with a rice protein base. It gives me a good amount and keeps me full for hours. I suggest doing something like that if you think restricting might set you up for a binge as the protein seems to curb any kind of craving. I add strawberries for extra goodness and mix it without or almond milk, sometimes soy.

As long as you take care to balance your foods well, there is no harm in cutting back, or ceasing certain foods if that's what you prefer.

Correction- I mix it with OAT or almond milk, not without. Silly autocorrect!

Oh, and remember to always

Oh, and remember to always think in terms of this being a way of life, not a diet and a means to restrict. It keep you eating your food choices for the right reasons.
