I meant to go vegan at first, but in my city soy products (to replace dairy) are pretty hard to find, so i thought i'd try vegetarian first and see what the results are.
Well the problem is there are no results. According to Steve (and other vegetarian/vegan people) becoming vegetarian should greatly boost your energy. I didn't experience anything like that. In fact i possibly had a decrease in energy, cause i noticed that i need more sleep now than i used to before this experiment.
So now i'm in doubts whether to stay on this route, or go vegan, or go back to eating meat. Has anybody had similar experience? Any help is appreciated.
I was going to suggest that your body might be detoxing from all the assorted poisons and toxins built up in your system, but then I noticed you'd been vegetarian for 6 months.
May I ask what you do for protein? Do you eat beans instead of soy products? Nuts?
