Most diets would have you cutting things out from your diet; they are about denial and discipline.
And check this out: If every American had one meat-free day per week, it would be the same as taking eight million cars off American roads in a year.
I missed a tuna-fish sandwich with mayo on toasted wheat bread more than anything. Six months after I went vegan, I snuck into a deli and took one home. And, of course, it wasn't nearly as good as I fantasized. It tasted, well, fishy.
I grew up in Doraville, Georgia and I ate barbecued ribs and chicken fried steak, and all kinds of cheesy grits, you know, and I never even thought twice about it.
