I guess it is pretty safe to presume that most people that read this blog have already adopted the PBMF lifestyle. But I am also mindful of those that peruse out of curiosity, perhaps with a nagging feeling that it is something they are interested in but are scared to take the plunge. If that sounds like you, may I propose a challenge?
Change can be scary, I know that. Doing something as drastic as totally changing your diet and lifestyle can seem overwhelming and fraught with complications. It took me an extra few weeks than it should have simply because I had some whey protein I needed to finish. In the end, I couldn’t wait any more and gave it away but, still, it delayed me.
So, how about this? Don’t commit to anything long term. Just commit to a week. Any food you have in your fridge will still be there in a week. You don’t have to think too far ahead. You don’t have to wonder what you now eat in restaurants. But you are dipping your toe into the karmic waters.
Starting tomorrow, try being a PBMF. No meat, no dairy, no fish, no eggs. Just food derived from plants. Search the posts for ideas but just give it a go. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. You don’t have to tell anyone what you are up to. You don’t have to answer any awkward questions. You don’t have to look like a turncoat if you change your mind. Just take the next seven days to explore what it means to be a PBMF: how it makes your body feel, how it frees your mind from guilt, how it gives you bundles of energy.
If you find you like it, you can either just carry on or finish off what you have in the fridge and take baby steps to change. If you don’t enjoy it, all you have wasted is a week and you’ll have the physical benefit of giving your body a bit of a detox.
I’d love to hear how you get on. Tell me your experiences below.
