  1. Hi! Thanks for sharing your story. Just out of curiosity, what made you choose this diet over other ones? (e.g. Whole30, paleo etc.) I’ve hear a lot about each but never enough to convince me that one is the best. I’d love to hear your thoughts!

    1. Hi Marie! I’m glad you liked the post! Honestly, at the time I decided to go Whole Food Plant Based (WFPB), I didn’t do much comparison shopping. I had tried one approach a few months before and it wasn’t working for me, so I started of the WFPB journey with the goal of just trying it out for 100 days. I figured it couldn’t hurt! But as I learned more about the benefits of the lifestyle, I was really impressed with the long term health impacts. Forks over Knives documentary, is really what convinced us about the merits of this approach. Thanks for the feedback!

  2. Thanks for all the info! My husband is on a medication, which requires him to cut his meat intake, and it was rough to start, but we are kind of loving how we are feeling with this new plant-based diet. I’m gonna check out some of the reading you recommended, since I’m kind of going in this blind! 🙂

  3. I really love the idea of living a whole food plant based diet and lifestyle! I’m dairy-free and egg-free so I already eat a lot of vegan meals. I look forward to your next part of the series, it’s hard to fully transition to WFPB when family and friends aren’t on the same page.

  4. I have been plant-based for about a year and a half and I absolutely love it! I still get so excited when I see new vegan options spreading around the world and I love trying new vegan foods! It was definitely one of the best decisions I have ever made!

  5. thanks for sharing this! I’ve been looking at a healthier route these days to better care for the insides of my body! crazy to think how much food these days aren’t “food” – if that makes sense! Need to be more aware of what we consume now

  6. Very interesting article indeed! My problem is giving up on meat completely because we have a family of meat lovers. Personally I have reservations about any kind of diet purely because I think it’s difficult to maintain it. Our diet needs to reflect our lifestyle and age for healthy living!

  7. I’m goibg to pin this! I think about trying this for an extended period of time but I never brought myself to do it. I’m going to take a look at the resources you provided. Keep us posted!

  8. Congrats on sticking with your challenge and I’m glad you enjoyed it. I’m currently doing Veganuary and loving it.

    I’ve watched quite a few of those documentaries but added some to my list!

    Thanks for sharing your journey. 🙂

  9. This looks like a rear option for our home. My husband is on whole 30 and while he and I like the program, it’s quite expensive… fresh produce is less expensive than meat so it may be worth going this route. Thanks for the intro to this! I’ll pin to save it!

  10. I am always interested in hearing people’s journeys. My “diet” lifestyle changes throughout the year when I am in competition prep so reading about the journey of others is always fascinating. I’m trying something new now myself.

  11. Awesome! I have been contimplating the idea of going whole food plant based for awhile now. I know my body just reacts and feels better when I eat this way. But I struggle with having to cook meals that my very meat eating husband and 2 toddlers will eat and it throws me into eating what they will eat all the time. I need to commit and try out some new recipes. Thanks for your informative post! X

  12. We recently made the switch to Whole Foods too. Although we aren’t 100% plant based. Organic is the way to go. The health benefits are countless. Not sure I would be able to get my blood work as often but I should do it once just to see.

  13. I have never tried 100% plant based and I’m not sure I could try it. I love so many foods out there I would be afraid of not having them again. But Kudos for your journey. I always enjoy reading things like these.

  14. I’ve done a lot of the same research and considered taking this type of challenge, too. You’ve inspired me!

  15. I believe that I could have a partial vegan diet. I have cut out dairy products and eaten the meat replacements before also converted a nonvegan recipe to a vegan one.
