The wife and I have tried to become vegan, but it is too tough. I may be appalled by how animals are treated but I do not think I can stop eating meat just because of who I am. I have decided to eat more sensible and getting back into my paleo/caveman diet. I lost the most weight doing that 40lbs total and I felt amazing on it. When the wife wanted to quit the diet i gained it all back. I need to become healthier, for myself and nobody else.
