I’ve just signed up to this forum a few seconds ago. I’m 21 and I came off my diet when I was about 18 and I still feel as healthy as ever. Although I still choose not to eat meat, yoghurt, fish, eggs etc. When I was younger it was imperative that I stuck with my diet otherwise become, ya know. At 18 I told them the truth that I found it hard to stick with the diet, being the embarrassing part of bringing weighing scales to restaurants, cafes etc. They just said “ok, but whatever you do take some vitamin supplements.” Today I had an appointment at the Nottingham City Hospital and asked them if I could restart my Maximum ade because of all the extra vitamins etc. Apart from the fact I have come off my diet, I’m a health freak.
