According to Cyril, vegetarianism is inextricably linked with global concepts and processes. His healthy lifestyle is fully justified - our ancestors did not eat fast food, and therefore, the rejection of junk food is quite natural.
How did you find out about the new food?
Kirill :On TV. Only, of course, then I didn’t really think about becoming a vegetarian, but didn’t even pay attention to it. There is little information, and if there is something, it is notably distorted. "friends" by reporters.
What contributed to the fact that you decided to move to vegetarianism, and then to veganism? Kirill :Definitely, awareness, as well as the habit everywhere and always act logically. And as for me - there is nothing more illogical than killing defenseless little animals and polluting the planet for the sake of satisfying their base culinary tastes. So I realized that I have the courage and strength not to do it! The main thing is to be honest with yourself and reduce your degree of hypocrisy to a minus! My goal for the next 40-60 years is to reduce this degree to a minimum.
How did you make the transition? Kirill :It was quick and easy. Meat wanted exactly one day! And that's all, I forgot about him. From personal experience I will say that it is hard to quit smoking! After you throw, you suffer for another two weeks, and then another half a year you want. And stop watching TV at all until it happened. And do not eat meat - easy. No wonder that media moguls and cigarette corporations are hundreds of times richer and more powerful than some unfortunate meat factories of death.
How long have you been on a new kind of food? Kirill :The other day it will be just 2 years, but I don’t remember how many of them are vegan! But more than a year already.
Were there "breakdowns"when you returned to the previous steps or once you allowed yourself to eat something that you refused? Kirill :Even the desire of this was not planned!
Were there any side effects? Kirill :You are joking? Of course not.
What good things have happened in your life in connection with the transition?
Kirill : Drastic improvements (which I, however, did not expect), as well as deterioration, did not happen.
I just realize for myself that my degree of hypocrisy is very low. Especially in comparison with the general modern trends.
How did you fight public opinion? Kirill :How? As usual. From an early age I did not consider the opinion of the people around me, so everything was easy and simple. I don’t pay attention to them, I ask you not to be confused with “I pretend that I don’t pay attention”. I really do not care much who says what, and all the more thinks.
How much more do you plan to eat like this? Kirill :40-60 years, and we'll see.
What advise the most important in your opinion, those who want to become a vegetarian? Kirill :Yes, just be yourself and do not pay attention to others (especially since they are often just jealous of your courage and strength of mind, because they themselves can not become a vegetarian). And do not forget - we all descended from a monkey, and I did not see or hear something that they would eat hamburgers and drink cola!
