In regards to vegetarian or non-vegetarian, (a post done in 1-2015), I have to have protein, and lots of it, or I experience heart rhythm problems. I'm not talking about eating red meat 3 times a week, I'm speaking of eating 2 eggs every morning, and chicken or fish (salmon or similar) for my meats. I have red meat (ground range fed beef- no hormones added) in something at least once a week. But, I'm not getting a lot of that unless I cook it into hamburger patties. I've tried doing less protein, and it just doesn't keep my sugar level even. I drink Almond (no sugar added) milk- when I feel I want milk. I don't do a lot of sugar foods. They do a whammy on me too. But I am trying the Organic Unsulphured Molasses by Plantation. I'll try 1 T in morning, and I T late in evening. And report back. I'm hoping it helps my 59 year old body in more than several ways.
One more thing about being a vegan. My SIL [Sister in Law] ate hardly no meat at all and got cancer of the uterus a couple years ago. They caught it in time, but scared her really bad. Since then, she's gone completely Vegan, and looks like a skinny pole- and hollow cheeks. And likes to tell everyone else they are too "fat." I notice her hair is still very thin, and complexion is not well. She says she feels fine, but then she said always says that. It's a pride thing with her.... She's 58. Perhaps eating hormone free meat (that's always what I buy) is not so bad. Either that, or lots of beans!! And they bloat me.... Of course, don't forget the power vegees to go along with the meat!
Ya'll keep posting!!! It's so much help to read everyone's experiences.
