When you exist on a diet of heavy foods, digesting requires quite of bit of energy. Since eating plant-based, I never feel heavy, bloated, or sick. I digest my food with ease, and I rarely feel run down. Even vegan desserts (which are definitely decadent) feel light.
The detoxing from eating fast food, meat, eggs, and dairy took a bit of time. However, if you can just hang tight, the long-term benefits are worth it. It's true that some people experience headaches during the detoxing period, but you have to make sure you're eating plenty. It takes more plant-based foods to fill you up because they can be lower in calories. You just have to drink a lot of water, eat a bunch of fruits, veggies, whole grains, and beans, and suck it up. :-)
Do you suffer from low energy levels, sleepless nights, body aches and pains? Do you have diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol? Simply changing your diet might turn these ailments around. It certainly can't hurt!
