Abhinav Kumar says:

I am a vegetarian for the past 8 years. Honestly speaking now I am more energetic, silent mind, increased confidence, the body became more athletic even in my late 20s, start caring for even small animals and small insects. I no longer get angry and understand the person's emotions easily. Everyone asks me why I look so young when I tell them I am in my late 20s. I always told them a vegetarian diet and regular exercise help me a lot. I know it is difficult to control the urge to eat meat. It took me almost 6 months to finally leave the meat and fish. I don't eat eggs also. During my journey of transformation, I spent time with friends who also became vegetarian which motivates me a lot 8 years ago. Thanks to them also. It will be painful in the begging but after few months you will feel so pure and happy from the inside. Please go for vegetarian from today only. You might fail few times but in few months you will have full control over your senses. The most important thing is why I am choosing a vegetarian diet which will motivate you always during this journey. It can be like you don't want the animals to get killed just for the taste. Others like getting a fit body and maintain it throughout my life. One more like I am bad in controlling emotions like anger and get afraid of things, less confidence. Currently, I am in Bloomington, Indiana, the United States for the past 1 year still I can easily follow my vegetarian diet here also. Please please please go for the vegetarian diet. It will be one of the best decisions in your life. Stay healthy and spread love. 🤗

Am advising y’all to try out dr udoka herbal pills on YouTube to get rid of hepatitis B with no side affects

Briana T-S says:

I'm transitioning now into a whole food plant based diet and it is not easy. With the cultural food that I was raised on from different islands and tribes, yes there are vegan options, but my family always added the animal products in. So this isn't easy right now, but my body is screaming and I need to make a change. If anyone has tips, please let me know. This is my day one and with God on my side, I know that it can be done. Tips are super helpful though and I'd like them!

Frank Herder says:

If you have any autoimmune condition – it won't help you. I'm plant based for 6 years. I think it gives a false hope to people that are deteriorating by the day as I do.
