Do you like to eat? Everything? All the time? I know I sure do! But there’s something I’ve learned in life, and that’s that you can’t always have it all. Want to eat some tasty sugary pastries and bliss out from the dopamine hit they give you? Sounds good, but be prepared to not feel motivated to go to the gym…or do much else after. Want to have loads of energy every day, have amazing looking skin, and a feel balanced emotionally? It’s probably gonna take some sort of sacrifice in your diet. In an almost literal sense, you can’t have your cake and eat it too. Today we’ll talk to Darlene Adamusik who has one of the more extreme and restrictive diets out there (though that’s not how she thinks about it). She is a vegan. She is loving it. And she is going to tell us why.
