I regularly experience anxiety and panic attacks. For anyone that has ever experienced either of these they are not pleasant experiences. They can be frightening, worrying, and can leave you shaken for many hours afterward.
After recovering from a recent panic attack I made the conscious decision that I was going to cut out animal protein for a while to see if it helps ease the panic and anxiety attacks. I also wanted to lose weight and along with exercising thought that an ovo-vegetarian diet could help me do this.
Ovo-vegetarianism is going to constitute a few rules:
- No meat products or by-products
- No fish or shell-fish
- No milk or milk products
- Eggs are permitted (all eggs I buy are from local farms where I know the conditions)
It takes 30 days to develop a habit. Perhaps I'll go back to meat after the month, perhaps it'll stick -- I don't know but I know it should be a delicious and interesting 30 days. Losing some weight wouldn't be that bad either.
Follow me on my 30 day journey and hopefully this inspires you to give vegetarianism a try even if it's just for a few days.
