Re: Turning to be a vegan?

I tried this I lasted like abit over a month I can without everything but dairy products is just another level of hard. But you should try it and just see how you go. My mum has been a vegan for like 26 years so it's definatly possible if you put your mind to it.

Re: Turning to be a vegan?

I gave up meat a year and a half ago. Being a vegan will be too much of a task for me, kashakaval & eggs have quite the place on my menu. Furthermore, strict vegans do not consume any products that consist of materials derived from animals which is quite hard to accomplish, have to check labels all the time.

Re: Turning to be a vegan?

Vegan or vegetarian ? My friend, who was a fatty became a vegan and she is almost anorexic now. I think she lost 25 kg in 2 years. So, if you wanna lose some weight, go for it, if you have an ideal weight stay out of it because it could turn bad for you.

LOL! FYI the very first human beings were vegetarians, the hunting and the consummation of meat came after that. So its quite natural if you ask me, being vegetarian that is. Veganism is too severe form of a diet and not for everyone.

Everything about weight is strictly individual. There are fat vegetarians/vegans, you know.

They would have been Vegan too as they wouldn't have had access to dairy, fish, eggs, etc.

Re: Turning to be a vegan?

Actually there were different kind of humans.

The one that ate only grass and plants died.

The one that ate everything survived.> homo sapiens.


But anyway I would never turn vegan, I only live once. please let me eat good food

I know someone who turned vegan but still ate fish, we had discussion because I said fish is also an animal.
she said fish can't think or something.
anyway it's just stupid to turn vegan because you feel bad for animals or something.
But you still eat eggs from tortured chickens and fish.

True. I think Vegan should be allowed to eat at least fish for their protein because it's not exactly meat.

Vegans are a militant faction of the vegetarians

Re: Turning to be a vegan?

There's some lack of clarity ITT. A vegan is a vegetarian who also eschews using non-food animal products; like leather shoes, belts, and wallets. A vegan also would never get a car with leather seats (though re. the steering wheel padding may not have a choice) or wear a goose down parka, get a real feather filled pillow, etc).

In practical terms many avoid buying wool because of alleged cruel treatment of sheep, but that's not "vegan specific". For example, many non-vegetarians only use cosmetics certified as not tested on animals, and beef or milk from free-range cattle. I'm still looking for a (living) PETA member who threw paint on Mary J. Blige's fur coat.

In terms of the health effects, some ppl do well on meat-free diets, and others don't (depending on their own genetics). In general, ppl with Type A blood tend to need carbs more than those with Type O, though this is an ova-simplification, as their are other metabolic distinctions involved. (I believe Types B and AB are fairly uncommon).
