Post numero uno!

Cool, my first post on my new blog.

I will start by introducing myself.

I am a reverse-vegan. I really can't think of any better (dietary) category to put myself into. I like meat. I eat animal products, and animal products only (with a few exceptions). But please don't confuse 'reverse-vegan' with 'anti-vegan', cause quite frankly, I don't care if you want to live off of tofu and bean sprouts. If you like it, that's great, and more power to you. (Just please don't e-mail me telling me how I'm going to have a heart attack or a stroke or whatever. I will just delete it, because, as I'm sure you know, I've heard it all before. )

Before I started this way of eating (WOE) I was (and still am) insulin resistant, and, at age 19, was well on my way to acquiring Type 2 diabetes. With a BMI of 32.5, I was clinically obese. I stood at 220 pounds (99.79 kg) at the not-so-short height of 5’9 (175.26 cm), had elevated blood pressure, and all the symptoms of PCOS.

Oh boy.

But you know what? I consider myself lucky. I am lucky that I won’t have to endure a lifetime of obesity. Though I still have 20 more pounds to go, I'm glad I figured out how to control my weight at age 21, rather than at age 40.

And I don't want anyone else to have to put up with it either.

I hope, perhaps, that I can help even one person with this blog.

I am the mother of the "Meat is Awesome" blogger and I can testify to the fact that she has lost over 30 pounds so far and is close to 185. I may have contributed to her health problem (maybe not) as I am a Type I diabetic AND did not encourage her a whole lot during childhood to be active (exercise)as I am terrible at it myself. I am VERY proud of what my daughter has achieved and I've seen her confidence and self-asteem improve tremendously. She seems happier probably because she finally has "control" over her body. You go Girl!

Hello Happy Low Carb Taco!

Congrats on your awesome weight loss! And that's wonderful that your mom is so supportive.

I was hardcare lowfat vegan for five years, and always hungry, anxious, etc. Not to mention that I struggled to stay slim! Now I eat meat and cut way back on the carbs. I still eat tons of veggies of course, especially low calorie, high nutrient greens like kale and arugula.

Insulin resistance is the malaria of the first world. It must be stopped.

Good luck with your continued weight loss. It is indeed wonderful to get the problem under control when you're young and can enjoy your youth in a body you love. Wish I knew at 21 what I know at 31. Go for it!

Well Done! You've chosen the best diet. You won't be poisoned by plant toxins now. All problems relating to gluten, phytates oxalic acid etc will never happen to you, and your tissues won't be poisoned by your own insulin.

Just a request...I'm not an American so pounds/inches mean nothing to me. Any chance of putting Kg/metres in brackets after the pound measurements please?


At August 03, 2006 9:00 AM, Blogger The Happy Low Carb Taco said...

ams, sure I can do that! I have edited some measurements for you!

I was never fatter than when I was a vegetarian! It doesn't work for everyone ;)

Congrats on your loss! I'm still eating veg and some fruit, but mainly meat - I am loving my breakfast steak.

This diet is AMAZING the best diet my family and I have ever done.
Just saying to the vegetarians, if your cat tortures a mouse to death, its natural, but if a human tries to kill something as painlessly as possible, than its bad MAKES NO SENSE

P.S- Please get rid of the spam
