Blogger dice que su dieta vegana le causó menopausia temprana

De vuelta a comer carne
Virpi Mikkonen de 38 años es una blogger finlandesa vegana que ha ganado seguidores por su dieta y libros de cocina que promueven el no comer carne, sin embargo, esta mujer que vivía sin consumir gluten, carne, azúcar procesada y lácteos ahora ha cambiado de nuevo su alimentación pues dice que ser vegana le causó una menopausia temprana.

Sufría de olas de calor y pausas en su periodo menstrual, pero fue hasta que le salió una erupción en la cara que buscó ayuda de un especialista en medicina china, quien le dijo a Virpi que debía dejar de comer tanta comida cruda y comenzar a comer carne, reporta el New York Post.

“No funciona para todos. No me funcionó. El problema era no ser vegano, per se, era la dieta vegana y mi estilo de vida estresante", dice ella al Daily Mail.

Añade que ahora incluye omelettes, albóndigas, pollo, verduras y caldo de carne en su dieta, aunque aún sólo bebe leche de avena y evita el gluten, el almidón y el azúcar refinada.

"Tal vez si hubiera tenido un estilo de vida súper relajado en algún lugar de Hawái, no habría tenido ningún problema en ser vegano. Pero en esta vida que estoy viviendo, la dieta no me funcionó y eso está totalmente bien", agrega Virpi.

Do you know what truly motivates you? ( COACHING GIVEAWAY! ⤵︎) Because only through pure motivation can you reach those high vibes that lead to mastery. The most important thing when searching your dream job is to find out what drives you at work and in everyday life - what kind of moments you want and need in your days for you to be truly happy. I’m doing a super inspiring collab with Minjon @minjonit , a Helsinki-based recruiting company which helps jobseekers to find jobs that motivate them and companies to find motivated workers. They use this special motivation test that is used to create a motivational profile, which is a unique map of seeker’s own motivation sources. If you ask me this kind of test should be done already in high school to every single student. Because a fancy title or a job that sounds trendy or cool doesn’t mean a thing if the everyday work makes your soul shrink. I had the opportunity to do Minjon’s motivation test and it was interesting to see how strongly the results resonated with the work I’m now doing as an entrepreneur. But also how I could finetune my work. The motivational profile & report is detailed and 32 pages long, but it showed for example that I’m much more sensitive to the aesthetics of my environment than the average people, so it’s important for my actual wellbeing that my surroundings and things I do please my eye. It also showed that I have a strong desire to make an impact and that I’m not a fan of adapting to rules & schedules, especially created by someone else. Too much social interactions drain me and I’m at my best when my calendar gives me room to breathe and when I can improvise and be spontaneous. Ok, I know it’s always the most boring thing to read someone else’s test results (and so fun to share our owns, ha), so I’ll give you now a chance to find out your own motivational factors: I’m happy to give away a job search & motivational coaching package to some of you by Minjon where you get your own motivational profile & coaching about your motivational factors and what kind of jobs would be suitable for you. Drop me a comment here before WED 23rd and you’re in! #vanelja #dreamjob #ad #oneinaminjon
