I can't take it anymore. I am officially stopping the vegan diet. I have been having such amazingly persistent cravings for meat the last two weeks! It's almost all I think about nowadays. I've had dreams about steak. I had given myself permission to quit at any time, and have been taking short breaks from it whenever I felt like it, but it's gotten to the point now that I take a "break" almost every day. So, I think the new classification is just "eating healthy". I'm still probably going to limit my cheese and milk products intake, but I need meat. I didn't really feel this way until I started taking the Metformin, so it could be that my hormones are adjusting themselves, and I just have more of a biological need for protein than I did before. Regardless, cows and chickens watch out!
Although, I will have to say that the vegan diet was good to me- I lost about 25-30 pounds in 6 weeks.
