When eating out at cafes or restaurants, I always look or ask for vegan options. I have found most good chefs can make vegan dishes when asked.
Also by staying to this schedule and drinking 500mls of water , 1 hour either side of eating, you will never feel hungry or crave for more food.
I do not have a problem not having meat, poultry, fish, dairy or eggs and enjoy eating the way I am eating.
I feel terrific and am at my ideal weight.
