Im new to a vegan diet as well!! i agree that I’m having a hard time eating enough because we’ve always been told that carbs are bad and no carbs in the afternoon type deal..its a mind set that has been hard to get rid of……i’m still trying to eat better so that I’m not starving later in the day..its definitely been a challenge!!..but I’ve already seen the rewards of eating a plant based diet! i no longer have high cholesterol and hope to finally be off HBP medication…family/friends/co-workers all have there opinions about a vegan diet..me and my dad get into it over needing chicken/meat/etc for protein lol…co-workers crack jokes etc..but that isn’t going to stop me from making positive changes in my life!!..
