17 years ago I was not a vegan. I was over weight, but not by much. I bought and read and followed the Atkins diet. I was a true believer. I lost weight, I felt great and I thought I was in control.
It took a few years but I regained and then gained some more after leaving behind the Atkins life style.
Flash forward to today. I am a vegan. I have obliterated sugar and hidden sugars from my food choices. However I still feel a twinge of guilt when I eat an apple, orange or tomato. And for that I will always hold that STUPID,( well for me anyways) Atkins diet responsible.
I can't understand why I let myself be brainwashed into rejecting pure healthy fruits and eating 3 egg cheeses omelettes made with sour cream instead.
