Try it!If you want to do it too, how do you begin? Here is a step-by-step guide.
Step 1. Learning and preparation: Doing anything new requires some learning. Get yourself some recipes which use fully plant-based foods, and practise making dishes you will like. Read up on healthy vegan cooking. You can find more help on the website
Step 2. Where to shop: Go to the health food store and try new foods. Learn how to make wonderful salads and where to buy all the ingredients.
Step 3. What to eat: Make a list of all the dishes you could have for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. Remember, a plant-based diet makes you will feel light and energetic, but in the beginning when this feeling is new, you will feel hungry. The good news is that you can eat as much as you want!
Step 4. Get all your lab reports including

7. Thyroid function ests
8. Blood pressure
9. Fasting blood sugar
11. it B12 and Vit D levels
12. Height and Weight
13. PPBS and HBA1C
Step 5. Get support. Do it with a friend or a family member. Use each other to dissuade you from falling off the wagon. Pledge to keep each other company for 21 days.
Step 6. Cleansing: Once you are ready, throw out everything that does not fit into your new regimen. Get rid of all the animal products – cheese, butter, paneer, curds, milk, eggs, meat, fish, and fowl, and all the refined products such as sugar, oil, polished rice, white flour, and juices. Once you have done this cleansing, you can begin to think clearly.
Step 8. Shopping: Buy plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. These will be the new staple. Buy some whole grains, nuts, and seeds. And begin!
Step 9. Remember to be consistent. No exceptions. Plan for 21 days, and not more. You are not pledging for a whole lifetime, it is just three weeks, and you can do it. It takes at least 21 days to change a habit, so it is most important that you stick it out. Once you have reached your goal you can decide if you would like to do it longer.
Step 10. Check your blood sugar levels regularly. If on insulin, it is important to check the blood sugar levels every day and even several times a day. When the levels fall, it is important to cut down the units of insulin. If one is on medication it is still important to check the blood sugar levels frequently, at least every few days or every week. As the results improve, cut down the medications with the help of your doctor.
