Going Vegan: What your first 30 days will look like

Wednesday, July 4, 2018

Even though I’ve jumped between vegetarian and pescatarian the last three years, I never, ever thought I would have the willpower to begin a Vegan, plant-based diet. The thought of cutting out brie, butter and Kraft Dinner absolutely terrified me. All of my absolute guilty pleasures were some sort of cheesy indulgence. 
After my Barcelona trip, I really felt like I needed a restart. This past year has been challenging and fast-paced - and I started to feel more and more anxious. I was tired, sort of irritable and was the heaviest I had been in the last two years (fluctuating between 10 to 15 pounds more than my usual weight). Something needed to change. 

It’s been almost 4 months since I made the switch over to a plant-based diet - and let me tell you, it’s just what my body needed. I wanted to give you all a breakdown of what the first 4 weeks felt like, the changes I experienced, and what got me through the challenges.
