After 3 years of being vegan I'm still overweight / sluggish with no energy (I also have psoriasis)
I think I'm just going to stay vegan and go gluten free.I posted a YouTube video on this subject.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRnqrq7XL_g- Matt
I was a vegetarian for 7 years and vegan for the last year of that. I supposedly did it right too. I combined my beans with corn to get all my amino acids and focused every meal on protein and ate lots of veggies and fruits. The main thing that happened was massive depression which just got way worse when I went vegan. I was also low on energy, had sleep and anxiety problems and was a mess. Then I started reading about paleo and read The Mood Cure by Julia Ross, which covers how nutrition affects psychology - its basically a paleo book without saying so explicitly as it just covers the biochemical facts.
The insidious thing about going vegan is you have a big energy boost the first few weeks and you feel great. But then the negative effects start setting in and you spend the next several years (or many years) trying to figure out where you went wrong and searching for how to get back to where you where the first couple of weeks.
