just wondered anyone got any tips on being vegan ? I had three periods of a few months but always felt kind of weaker. I gave up meat when a teenager (40 plus years ago) and also fish for about 10 years. I feel if I have to move around under pressure (waitressing) a big build up lactic acid and next day feel like I have been running marathons :) Recently I asked myself "whats going on, why does my body do this" I heard "you need creatine" when I looked up creatine I found out it is a protein only available naturally in meat and fish! If theres not enough creatine in the body then the body goes into anaerobic metabolism (lactic acid is the by product). A lot of athletes etc take creatine supplements. I couldn't find out tht creatine can come from any plant sources. You can buy it as a supplement which is vegan so have ordered some.
Anyone else have a problem with physical activity like this when on a harmless diet? I would say after maybe thee hours of running around my body struggles. I'm pretty conscious about the rest of my diet other than the fish/eggs. No dairy and only organic when I can get it sometimes difficult on the very northern tip of Scotland. I don't use any chemicals on my body or in my house. Just this problem of feeling weak which somewhat lifts when I eat fish again.
I take a plant based multivit and mineral (not made in a lab) I think I eat a pretty balanced diet having researched a lot. It upsets me to think of how other beings suffer to sustain me so I think I block off part of me when I eat some things.
