    In a couple of months I will have five years of being a vegetarian, and so far it has been good to me.

    At the moment I'm having an inkling to go a full on vegan. The only thing is I do enjoy my cheese and eggs and I have a bit of a sweet tooth. I know that I could find a way, I did the same thing when I made the switch to my current diet.

    I'm pretty sure this is something I want to do...Any support, ideas, suggestions for the transition?????

    Thanks max, that helps a lot. I think warm food is important too. So not going raw, but I think it's time to ditch the animal products.

    I would recommend discussing this with your physician and he/she will likely recommend you to a nutritionist. However, it is my experience, most vegans/vegetarians do it for psychological reasons and less about physical reasons. Ideology is well and good but Humans by evolutionary design are omnivores, don't neglect that fact.

    as a personal trainer and a nutritionist. I would say hell no. that is the worst thing that you can do to your body. There are certain nutrients that you can only get from eating meat. I mean I am not saying you can not do it. But I would not recommend it. Especially if you are going to try and put on muscle. Anyhow, the final decision will be yours?

    Mac Danzig is a pro MMA fighter and a vegan, he's in pretty good shape. I've been a vegetarian for almost five years and when I hit the weights have no problem putting on muscle.

    And I wouldn't say worst thing I could do for my body...wouldn't that be meth or heroine or something of the like...

    If your family has a history of heart disease I would say yes, do it. There is no better diet than a vegan diet to help your heart health. Those who say your body needs meat obviously just aren't as educated on the subject as they think. As you said you've been a vegetarian for 5 years already. I think you can draw your own conclusions at this point.

    Going to a vegan diet obviously presents some challenges and some discipline, but it sounds like you are prepared and determined to go in that direction.

    If you mostly prepare your own meals at home it's not that difficult to go vegan. The biggest challenge is having a very limited selection of what you can order at a restaurant.

    I fully support a vegetarian diet, even probably over a meat diet, in general. When it comes to veganism, however, you need to be in mind of what kind of nutrition you are getting and I wouldn't be so willing to jump the rope and adopt it. Vegetarianism can be an overnight thing - veganism not so much.

    While you can, on a vegetarian diet, obtain all necessary nutrients solely from foodstuffs, as a vegan you might need to be taking nutritional supplements on a regular basis.

    You are aware that many wines aren't vegan, right? As aren't many beers (though most nowadays are becoming). Also, what would your position on honey be? Vegans are torn but most exclude it from their diet.

    And the list goes on.

    All I'm saying, veganism goes beyond dairy - eggs and cheese.

    Vegan=nothing from animals

    My dick is made out of meat and cum comes out of it, so pretty sure that is again your rules as a vegan.

    No.

    Unless you have vegan friends, you'll find invitations for dinner dwindling to nothing because you're the 'difficult vegan guy' that no one knows how to cook for or what restaurants to choose.

    Technically I'm not eating your dick. And as long as you shoot on my instead of in my mouth and I don't swallow then it's all good...

    Where did you get your "nutritionist" license? ISSA, AFPA or Ace? Sorry, but an online personal training course in nutrition does not qualify you as a nutritionist. Although I wouldn't be surprised if you are a real nutritionist, because ost nutrition information out there has been tainted by the powerful influence of the meat and diary industry anyway. They will have you believe you need a gram of protein for every pound of body weight to be healthy, which is absolute bullshit. Now can you just imagine how our ancestors would have ever achieved such a thing? I hope they had AK-47's, because that's what they would have needed to supply that much protein for their bodies!

    There is a vegan bodybuilder named Robert Cheeke. I met him here at a vegan pot luck last year. Super nice guy and ripped to shreds. I bet he would be glad to talk to you. His Facebook page is: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Robert-Cheeke/70090235446?ref=ts I would start there because RealJock has a history of being very anti-vegetarian.

    There is a very simple way around that. Always ask if you can bring a dish, as people always welcome extra food. Plan for the worst case senario and make it a dish you can make a meal of in case there are no other vegan dishes there. Plus, if it's close friends, they will know in advance your food lifestyle and will usually gladly prepare something you can eat.

    So All the vegans/veges come on over to my place and we can have a dinner party and NOT invite the carnies icon_razz.gif

    @Wallcrawler - if you can somehow live without cheese, milk, and eggs (and much chocolate O.o) then YES go for it.

    Personally i've been vegetarian for 3-4 years but i couldn't give up cheese.

    Fuck the cheese and eggs - that's easy.

    How about wine, beer, honey, white sugar, caramel, casein and a bunch of other less obvious ingredients? I know vegans are aware of that, but are people new to veganism?

    you could, you would have to stop cum guzzling.


    If you're inspired to go vegan, then go for it.

    I'd just bend ya over and plow yer ass like a crazed farmer.

    That way I'm giving away animal protein and not ingesting it. =P

    That said, I'm not willing to give up my carnivorous diet of bacon, steak, and ribs.
