I know some of you are saying, “Those aren’t pure diet sites!” You’re right. Some of them aren’t, but they are motivational regarding the process of living a healthy life. Some of which comes down to what food you eat and how much of it. However a good part of the entire process is mental; how you look at yourself and how you look at the world. On some of these sites there are a few precious gems of information buried between the life stories, jokes and occasional rants. I hope you can find some of them and receive the benefits, like I did.

Well, that about sums of the lot of them. So if you are a vegan, vegetarian, meat lover, need to be dairy-free, gluten-free or are just looking for food facts, food information, food recipes or diets, you are covered. It took quite a bit of time to compose the list. There are quite a few I left off. If you have some great sites that you have found helpful in your journey and that you think will be of benefit to others send them in. It is okay if it is your own site. If it fits in the list or is beneficial in some way, hopefully we add it somewhere.

Thank you for reading.
