Welcome!!!! And nice work!! Amazing still at what the Dr won't tell you or suggest other than....take this pill and come see me in a month.
Getting off the inflammation causing foods is a big step.
We all come to the lifestyle for different reasons, and some of us here are new, and others have been in it for a long time.
For your cravings, good news, about 1.5 years ago, we found a vegan group in our area on Meetup.com and that was amazing! Not only to have a support group of likeminded people, but the things they can cook!!!
Some are more purist, don't care for the meat alternatives nor things that are all plant-based but still taste like meat. Others, grown up as omnivoirs can still appreciate a good fajita or (pretty much name it, there's a way to make it plant based!). Should help with the cravings, and when you might stumble...don't beat yourself up much...sounds like your body will do that for you...
We've a lot of tried and tested recipes, so if there is a favorite you like, post it up, and we'll try to help.....
And there's a certain smile that comes from doing MMA and Krav Maga with many younger than me....MORE than keeping up and being plant powered....just sayin'..
