You look great bro. Congrats!You've turned into the cross fit person where the first rule is to talk about cross fit but I get it. You want others to realize what you experienced. Either way, it's not a bad thing and I'm happy for you. Well done!
After careful consideration, I think I might actually be interested in a diet similar to yours.
The real reason I haven't tried yet is due to my stubborness. I love eating meat and greasy fried food. It tastes good, but makes me feel like poo afterwards. Always an experience.
Lately, that "poo" feeling has lingered more than I feel it should. I work out and do limit my fried foods, but that doesn't seem to be helping my quality of life. I tried to limit how much meat I eat, but even that doesn't help.
I know the facts. Plant based foods will prolong your quality of life and even lifespan. Research proves that. For one, you can look at Loma Linda and see how their average lifespan is greater than that of most of the world due to their diet.
You can defend meat and fried food all you want, but facts are they're the main culprit for health issues and the only reason its defended is taste.
I would appreciate a DM sometime about how you diet, what you eat, and what you recommend I do. Any recipes, tips, and whatever you got would be greatly appreciated.
Congratulations on your journey so far Jeremy. I think you've also inspired me to finally do something I should've done years ago.
