As many of you know, I stopped eating meat when I was 16. It wasn't because I was trying a new fad but simply because it made me feel sick--sharp stabbing pains to be exact. I lived off fish, tofu, legumes and anything Morning Star, LiteLife and the rest could throw at me. When I started getting a little plumper in my hip/thigh area despite my constant working out I turned to trusted nutrition sources who said that the estrogen found in soy products could be the issue. I decided it was time to reintroduce chicken.
It started innocently when I was home with my parents and nothing happened. I actually ate less because it filled me up quicker and I was satisfied. When that worked, I went ahead and ate turkey. Completely revolutionized my lunch.
And now I can't get enough of it. I actually feel better, like I have more energy and stay full longer. I feel like my meals are more balanced for some reason too.
I don't think I will ever go back to eating red meat, but for now I am completely satisfied.
