There are many reasons why I choose to eat a plant based diet. About 3 years ago, I chose to try Dr. John McDougall's starch-based diet. I bought his books and downloaded Mary's recipes, and frankly, loved it!
I had already been eating a flexitarian diet - which I would define as mostly plants and mostly organic. The shift to eating starch-based-vegan was easy for me.
My intention in my work as a Healthy Lifestyle Coach is to support my clients in achieving less-stress and more-success. Eating plant based foods are quite simply, easier to digest than animal foods. That alone creates less-stress in your body and a light fresh feeling that contributes to your success! Try it and let me know how you feel.
