There is a place where the plant-based diet (the one Iíve been on for nearly nine months now) leads you. Itís a place you see more often than you did when you were filling yourself up with meat and cheese and the like. Itís a good place to go more often than I did in my previous life, although Iím not sure itís the best thing to be spending as much time there as I do now. Itís the bathroom.
Yes, the plant-based diet has a cleansing effect, and the cleansing can sometimes take up long stretches of the day. Sometimes Iíll spend the whole morning in that place, and itís all good, really it is, but thatís a lot of time. (A lot of reading, too.) Itís possible Iíve slightly overdosed, over the last few days, on fiber-rich fruits and vegetables. For whatever reason, Iíve been spending even more time in that special place than usual.
I donít think Iíve ever felt as healthy as I have since starting this diet, but thereís a commitment there that I didnít realize, before I started, that I was making. Itís a good thing I work at home, with hours flexible enough to accommodate such a commitment.
