About my healthy binge eating and my vegan diet

France, 8pm

(First of all, this is my opinion, I'm not saying you're wrong, I just want to explain my beliefs, I don't want insults and comments saying I'm wrong, or stupid... I won't answer them.) 

I'm vegan. I made that choice 2 1/2 years ago, after being vegetarian for 3 years. It has nothing to do with my EDs

It's a question of ethic and moral. I know I'm going to look crazy, but I don't care. 
To me, we are all linked to one another, humans, animals, plants, earth...we are all made of the same things. I do not consider one species more important than the other, I care the same for a rose, a spider or a man. 

Some thousands of years ago, what would become the Homo Sapiens started to eat meat to survive. They did not have a choice, it was eat or die. And I'm glad they did because that means I am here today. 

But nowadays, in a country like mine, we do have a choice, we don't need to eat or abuse animals to survive, we do it because "it tastes good". It's nothing more than cannibalism.
I know in some country they still do not have a choice, I'm okay with that and I respect it. I completely understand that they need meat. 

I just want to live my life without killing others. What is wrong with that? Torture, abuse, slaughter... I don't wish it on anybody, even if it's just a fish. 

(And yes, I know I eat plants, but while we have alternatives for meat, dairy products and eggs, we don't have them for plants...yet^^) 

So that's why you will almost never see me bingeing on unhealthy food (as so of you commented), (I do indulge in burger, cheese, cookies and crisps from time to time, like today ^^ but 100% vegan!) 

And it's also why I'm so hard on myself when I binge. I respect what I eat. And when I lose control and waste so much food, I'm really angry at myself

You must have heard about that movie, but please, if you never saw it, do it. People just hide themselves from the thruth.

  1. I like what you said about the not binge eating since your wasting food (though most of what I binge on is food that I would have to throw away since it would spoil).
    I was vegan for a while, vegetarian for longer.
    It was hard and impractical.
    Good for you for sticking to your beliefs.
