Incredibly, the same scenario happened to me. I'd drifted between laco-ovo vegetarian and pescatarian diets for many years. First I gave up eating seafood (was difficult for me) and eventually I decided to eliminate dairy and eggs. Within a couple of weeks, the chronic eczema I suffered with and had been unsuccessfully treated for by dermatologists, disappeared, never to return. Now in my mid 60s and fit as can be. I have been on a 100% whole food, plant-based diet for over 5 years and fully enjoy the vegan lifestyle. It's amazing how easy it was to transition into this way of eating. Reading many of the posts in this thread indicates that there is still much confusion and misunderstanding in regards plant-based eating. Knowing that eating plant-based is the most important individual behavior a person can incorporate into their life to reduce their carbon footprint, as well as the horrendous suffering of animals must endure in the animal ag biz, makes it all worthwhile. It's not so difficult as one might imagine and the benefits are bountiful.
