No More Diets, Try This Instead

Dieting can be frustrating. Most of them involve starving yourself or eating a garden full of lettuce and a produce section full of vegetables. If you can’t eat another salad or starve yourself another day, it’s time for you to stop dieting and try something else instead.

Try a lifestyle change! A lifestyle change and diet are two different things. While diets are temporary restrictions on consumptions, a lifestyle change are permanent adjustments to your consumption patterns that promote a healthier way of living.

Four years ago, I made a lifestyle change and became Pescevegan by giving up meat, dairy, eggs, cheese and anything else that comes from animals. I still consume seafood occasionally, but the majority of my daily eating is 100% vegan. Being vegan isn’t for everybody, but check out these other lifestyle change options!
