Denisemomof4 Posted June 12, 2012 Share Posted June 12, 2012 (edited) TMI warning!!!!! i have noticed a surprising, but welcome, change in my body since becoming (mostly) vegan. Since the new year I have had one burger (after getting lost in the woods and snowshoeing for over five hours!), half a burger another time, chicken twice, and when I met Parrothead I had meat and dairy. I do have seafood occasionally, although I am having it more frequently lately because it is beach season in NH, and I regularly eat eggs from my own chickens. I eat low carb. I will normally eat one carb per day. I just don't feel well if I eat too many carbs. If I eat a carb for breakfast, I will be toast for the rest of the day. Most of my carbs come from legumes, Millet or quinoa. I occasionally eat pretzels, potatoes or sourdough bread. Since I cut out meat, I have noticed surprising changes with my cycles. I was having extremely heavy ones as menopause approached, but immediately after cutting out meat they became lighter. Last month and this they are less than half of what the once were, both in volume AND duration!!!! I am SO pleased with this! I did some searching around online and was surprised to see that this is common! I had NO IDEA!!! I I ate mainly organic and/or wild meats so I don't think added hormones have anything to do with it. I also read that some women who cut out all animal products AND processed foods of any kind can basically cut their cycles down to one day of spotting. Anyway, TMI.... But wanted to share.
