Hi. I fed up. I love doing this lifestyle because i feel happy nad energetic. I have good body image. I can't do it for a few reasons.People hate me for it. Parents say that i eat too much and it is too expensive. They don't want to let me to some camp or other trip. Friends don't invite me for some parties. Eveyone thinks that it's sick. I don't know what i do. Sometimes i think why i do it. I'll definitely eat vegan when i move out and i will be adult. Vegetrianism is even bad for people in my place.
it seems me that i'm losing my teen life's experiences. I don't have force to continue this...
I can't ;(
How old are you? (i am 16) anyway, buy more starches, like potatoes... they are dirt cheap (pardon the pun) i totally get where you are coming from with the friends... i eat an entire bunch of bananas for lunch and just own it :) if they really are your friends they will tease, you but in a loving way
about the sick thing.. i get that too, so i got blood-work done (it was PERFECT) so whenever someone says anything i just tell them about my excellent levels of protein, calcium, (etc.)
i will be your buddy if you want, we can get through this together :)
Oh thank you, Shannon. You're welcome. I'd love to take your help. :) I'm 15. I'd like to be confident to saying about this lifestyle. I'm even scared to eat in public. ;/
all in all, its your life and your decisions as long as this lifestyle makes you happy make sure to let others know that and give people time to get used to the new lifestyle.and also remember that in the end its your health that matters. and let them keep following their processed unhealthy diets while you get fit and health for life :) keep your chin up girl ;)
That's a great idea! Just dont mention it that you are a vegan.
Great advice from David and Kierce already. Don't talk about it, and just eat fruit where you can. Being a teenager on this diet without support is hard going. But you're not always going to be a teenager. You will move out at some point and have your own life and your own money. Just eat as clean as you can now and don't talk about what you're doing with people, unless they are genuinely interested (which is rare). Enjoy life, be happy, love your family and your friends. Love is more important than food! Big hugs xx
Thank You, everyone for help. Yours advices are so supportive. Tou have right. I'll just continue this lifestyle wihout saying about it.
Lots of love,
