I need to try and work more veggies into my diet. It is really difficult when you aren't the one cooking and 4 others in the house are not veggie eaters. At dinner once my mother has put a bowl of olives ( which I hate) and said this is our veggie for tonight... often it is steak or some sort of meat and potatoes(however they may be made.. mashed, baked, etc...) I always feel tired and sluggish. I have had my blood work checked and so far nothing is wrong. But I have diabetes on both sides of my family ( Mom's mom and dad's dad) and I am so scared that I am eating myself into diabetes. I know I will probably end up having to eat meals seperate of the family and my boyfriend. They are so set in their ways and my dad will NOT give up steak... Same with my boyfriend I have to make him eat some veggies. Other wise he will eat everything else around them. I just know I have to do something quick or I will end up like my mother who is only 5'5" and nearly 300lbs at the age of 50. I am 5'10" and 315 but am getting close the same level of unhealthiness If I can get the ball rolling I am hoping I can get the rest to follow suit. ANy suggestions on what I can do to make it as easy as possible to transition my self in to a healthier life style and what would be good to try for the whole family and dinnertime as easy as possible with out cooking seperate meals. I am desperate at this point because I am sick of feeling so awful and have NO energy to do anything and I can be in pain when I do.
Daniel said:hey man, sorry if i came off as ignorant in the vegetarian thread. I guess i like to argue. Hah. ive been thinking about transitioning from eating everything to a more healthy diet. Not necessarily vegetarian/vegan but alot more fruits and vegetables, organic meats, not as much crap and chemicals. i guess what im asking is how do you take that first big plunge and stop eating the crap?
