So Ken and I have decided to start dieting. I hate to diet. I'm never very good at it, because I love food, and I hate feeling like I can't have something. I also have some pretty deeply ingrained emotional issues relating to certain foods. Being vegan is completely different, because my ethical commitment is so strong, I can't imagine going back to eating animal foods. But dieting for my health is...different. I have gained an uncomfortable 15 pounds in the past nine months. That is not cool.
We are now in day two of our own modified version of Eat to Live. Since we already eat vegan, the main change we face with this diet is the cutting out of sweets, bread, and fat. I love fruit and vegetables, but I'm missing sugar and fat like crazy. Someone kill me now.
