    I had to change one of my daily challenge because is really time consuming to not eat animal product 3 times a day, I 'm not a vegan or vegetarian so is difficult to cook, to buy products like that.  I change it to one meal per day at the beginning of the challenge and I get a lot of energy from my morning breakfast of fruits and grains.

    Is very Difficult not to eat animal products, looking at the ingredient and making sure takes a long time.  is easier to eat just veggies and fruits
