My First 30 Days as a Vegetarian

Your Fortune Online

O.k. Health, wellness & vegetarianism; what does all this have to do with yourfortuneonline.com? Excellent question, I’m glad you asked! Simply put, your fortune isn’t just about money. My day job (as I build my home business online) is working on the cardiac unit at my hospital. One of the things I have learned from working there is that the amount of money you may have will be useless if you don’t have your health to enjoy it. Because of this, I want to share what I’ve learned about health & nutrition along with how to build a home business online. Watkins is the perfect complement for anybody concerned about the health and wealth of their family. Watkins has specialized in offering quality natural products to families for over 141 years. In addition they have the perfect (imho) business opportunity available today. I just wanted to have a short explanation of why I include healthy recipes, wellness information along with steps to earning money in your home business. It is the melding of these aspects that create a more productive society.

My “Vegetarian Journey”

Well it’s been 30 days since my wife and I tried being vegetarian for the month of March. I’m happy to report that it was a roaring success. As a matter of fact, it has gone beyond the “test” stage & we are now full blown vegetarians. It has been a gradual trend that started last April when we changed our eating habits. We cut out red meat, fried foods & foods with high saturated fat. Late October 2009 I joined Watkins. I’ve really enjoyed being able to convert over to the Watkins Natural products that are available. Between eating better and using natural products, vegetarianism was not too much of a leap. The change came about for purely selfish reasons though, I must admit. Heart Disease runs in my family. The past 2 years I’ve been working on the Cardiac floor of the hospital. Seeing the pain and heartache patients and families have to deal with I decided I needed to make a change.

The Vegetarian Un-Meatloaf Recipe is Born

It has really been fun converting my conventional recipes to vegetarian. As a matter of fact, my favorite recipe (meatloaf) just got converted last night. *You can find the recipe here. It turned out awesome. The “Un-meat” I used has 0 fat and 8 g of protein. Way better for the heart than hamburger or turkey. My wife dubbed it the “Un-Meatloaf” lol! A lot of us have tried to make changes to healthier eating in the past. I can still remember trying to eat rice cakes and cottage cheese. Yuck! I wish I knew 20 years ago that it was possible to eat healthy, nutritious food that actually tastes good. It’s because of what I know now, that I didn’t know then; that I want to share healthy eating tips with others. It actually may be a benefit to others to see where I came from. Fried, and fat laden fast foods were a mainstay in my diet for years. Knowing that it is possible to go from McDonald’s Big Mac’s to Vegetarian Un-Meatloaf will show that anyone can make the change.

Speaking of change, check out VeganGal as she chronicles her adventure into Veganism during Lent: “40 Day Old Vegan” It is a daily account of her 40 days of veganism. The page I linked to has a video of her explaining veganism, as well as links explaining what Lent is. She also has several links to other Vegan Resources. Check it out.

The Diet Lie

Clinically Proven Vegetarian Diet

Clinically Proven Vegetarian Diet

Conventional wisdom concerning dieting is to eat less & exercise more. Simple huh? Problem is, any change you make in your life has to have 3 components.

  1. There has to be a “Core Desire” for change
  2. Have a “Proven Method” to follow
  3. Be sustainable

Why Diets Don’t Work

Now, people that do the typical “diet thing” usually don’t have the 1st component down. As a matter of fact I think most of us have been there. Ever heard these words: “I’ll try this new diet and see”. This should be your first clue it ‘ain’t gonna work.

Second, is eating less and exercising more a proven way to lose weight. Yes, and no. If you have the “Core Desire” and follow through, then yes it is. However the final component is what trips most people up. Is it sustainable. This simply means that day in and day out you are able to follow the changes you’ve made in your diet and continue to exercise. Many of the “Diets” I have read about aren’t sustainable.

Non-sustainability (if that is even a word) is often times a problem because of portion control. Less food in means less weight gained, simple math. Well, not so much. It has been clinically proven that a reduction in intake most often causes your body to say “hold on here, I’m starving” and hang on to fat. There is actually a “method” to eating that allows you to eat more and lose weight. I avoid calling it a diet because diets are usually short term strategies. This is actually a lifestyle change.

Clogged Artery Blaster Vegetarian Diet

The main difference between this program and other diets is that it has been clinically proven to work. Not only can you eat more and lose weight, it has been proven to be the only non-surgical way to reversing blockages to the heart. Let that sink in for a moment. You can actually have the benefits of a CABG (coronary artery bypass graft) without having surgery. Dean Ornish, MD is the doctor who made this discovery. You can read the details of his diet here on WebMD. And while it should be obvious, I am in no way connected to or profiting from Dr. Ornish, and ANY major lifestyle changes you make should first be made after consulting your personal physician.

With that being said, bet your wanting to start eating a “little” healthier now aren’t you! Here are some resources for ya!:
