Why I went vegan, which maybe why you should go vegan too.
It all started back in middle school. I became health and weight conscious, because I had been diagnosed with high cholesterol. So when I went to high school, I was determined to be physically active. I ran track, summer track, and cross country. Though I was not good at the sport, I did manage to get my health and weight under control. Fast forward to the summer between my Junior and Senior year of college. My weight had taken down turn and I was afraid my weight would too. I ended up reading the book Skinny Bitch, and later, By Any Greens Necessary. Through trail and error, I decided that the vegan diet and vegan lifestyle was the perfect fit for me.
