    I have been vegan/vegetarian

    for over 2 months and I am so glad I decided to educate myself on the animal cruelty going on in the meat and dairy industry. I can eat a lot of foods now and not feel guilty. I think I fixed too many potatoes but I know I'll eat it all.

    Already There

      Take it from someone who's been a vegan for nearly two decades.  It's definitely a step you might want to take.  There are so many good reasons - health, spiritual and environmental.  Eating vegan is green.

    I want to be a vegan

    because I cannot deny that dairy is produced unethically and that animals suffer incredibly so I can have my cheese pizza. The right thing to do would not be to condone and support this behavior. I am very emotionally attached to food though but I know that I'm more emotionally...

    I barely eat anything anyway. Meat is a large factor of the small variety of foods I actually willingly consume, I also have a few vitamin/mineral deficiencies so it could be dangerous for me to unless o got put on tablets. If I was vegan or even vegetarian I think it would be...

    I've been researching this

    for a while now, I've found some reliable looking people on YouTube to look up to, but if any experienced vegans can message me or something, I think it would be beneficial to talk to a vegan one on one about their experiences. Thank you :)

    I really want to be a serious vegan.

    I've been serious about vegetarianism for the past month but I feel disgusting. Every time I eat yogurt or cheese I have this guilty feeling bc I know it's not right. My body doesn't like it. I get gassy and bloated and nauseated afterwards. I watched many documentaries on...

    I'm a Vegetarian, but I want to go Vegan.

    I find it way too hard to shop for Vegan groceries and clothing locally, though. Will supermarkets ever fully cater to the Vegan's needs & with a bit more variety? Surely there will come a day :-/

    I want to start eating better.

    I haven't had red meat in almost a year now. I only eat turkey and chicken once a day. I've been eating a lot beans, only problem is my stomach hurts so much. Are there any ways to prevent that.

    I'm wanting to cleanse my body

    and seeking a new life style. I would like to be vegan but I'm a fussy eater so my palette is really limited. I don't eat lentils, nuts or mushrooms which seem to be the prime protein providers in a vegan diet. Is there anything I could have instead ?? Xx vegan clueless

    I think it's very important to stick it to the

    man, and if I were to become a vegan it would be in protest to everyone who eats meat and animal produce without the faintest idea of the violence that is in the industry.
