I am a dietary vegan and I became one for health reasons. However with that being said, I do not use dead animal skin, so my shoes, wallet, belt are all ‘pu’. I like it, I feel great and why not. I lost 30 kgs by eating more than I ever have. I have clarity in my life and work that I have never had before. I am patient and my temperament and stamina is better.
shashhwatguptaSo I became a vegan because I shifted to a house near a badminton club which has 8 badminton courts, I made some friends who played badminton there and after a few days of playing with them I realized, I can’t run, I can’t hit, I can’t move and basically I cannot play. I was about 122 kgs of no skill or stamina. Either I give up of improve myself were the only two choices. In the past having tried and miserably failing on a high protein, high fat, low carb vegetarian diet post which I only got bigger, I was determined to find a solution to this problem. I had three criterias that I knew needed to be met if I was to do another diet.
1. I will not stay hungry – This also meant I will restrict on type of food but not on quantity. Anyways staying hungry has always been illogical to me.
2. I exercise when I can exercise – I got other things to do sometimes, man.
3. Eat anytime I want/can – “You must have breakfast before 10 and lunch by 2 and dinner before 6pm”. I understand the merits of this and intermittent fasting but I am a regular international traveler, I am busy with things besides eating and I need to eat when I am hungry. 
Becoming a vegan solved these for me and now although still overweight at 90 kgs, I am slowly shaping up more. The badminton is now great!

    First off I would like to say great blog! I had a quick
    question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.

    I was interested to find out how you center
    yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my mind
    in getting my thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any
    suggestions or tips? Thanks!
