Via: Voracious Vegan:

Many of you know that I have recently been struggling for the first time in my life with health problems. When I discovered that my problems were a direct result of my vegan diet I was devastated. 2 months ago, after learning the hard way that not everyone is capable of maintaining their health as a vegan, I made one of the most difficult decisions of my life and gave up veganism and returned to eating an omnivorous diet. My health immediately returned. This experience has been humbling, eye-opening, and profoundly transformative. To hear the whole story just keep reading…

    I read this whole article today and was bowled over. Wow, I didn’t realize why people had reasons for being vegan.
    While I have not been vegan for 30 years now, my struggles with finding a diet that doesn’t send me into glycemic overload has been intense for several years now.
    Stress of a very intense kind, unending for several years now has made me pretty sick. Sugar, BREAD (the love of my life – grew up in a family that owned a bakery no less) also makes me sick.
    My eyes roll back in my head and I go into a kind of sleepiness that is out of my control. I had a Yogi tea box that said women should take two eleven minute naps per day. So when I find myself zonking out, I take an eleven minute nap and am perfectly refreshed. That cell phone sure makes a good alarm clock. If I don’t do that nap thing after eating gluten I go in and out of sleep for the rest of my work day. This is not a way to live.
    Best diet for me is basic. High protein (peanut butter for breakfast, meat, fish or eggs for lunch with a salad with an organic avacodo if I’m lucky; meat for dinner.
    Someday I’ll get myself tested for celiac disease. But I cannot tolerate grains anymore, but can tolerate spelt flour if I soak the flour as per Sally Fallon and Nourishing Traditions, my bible these days. Learned of this book re Cryptogon. Thank you.
    I loved this article. The author is awesome. Can’t believe people can be so shallow and smallminded to send her meanness after such an awesome expose. Those can chew on their favorite cud, I guess. Why do people have to be so mean?
    I have Laurie Keith’s book. Am hoping for a moment to read it.
