    And are all fatty acids equal? Are all proteins equal?

    granted they are easier to absorb into our bodies if they come from fish, we shouldn't discredit other sources if they are available.

    I am a nutrition Student as we speak.

    I haven't heard of any proteins that fish give that we can't already get, however...it may aid in brain function as a substitute for something we arn't getting.

    if you could find some literature that would be great.

    Nor should a non-veg diet be discredited. At least from what I hear and read.

    also, my biology professor freshman year, also a nutritionist, preached a non-meat diet, and explained how you can get everything you need with this lifestyle.

    Try the american heart association. I've also heard good things about the aminos in red meats not available otherwise. I'm not a nutrionist or nutrition student.

    from my morals, standpoint, ethics, etc, a non-veg diet should be discredited. if you dont think so, i don't understand why you are on this forum. it plainly asks about guys who ARE veg

    I've been told to be wary of soy as it messes with estrogen/testosterone.

    such is the myth. thats if you eat it in extreme excess. anything in excess is bad for you.

    Well, fry, if we're to stick to the exact nature of the question, you too have given too much input, thank you very much. The topic is a very specific question and you've felt free enough to expound on it. Should nobody else feel that free or is it just you who should? Do you feel threatened by discussion? If so, try public speaking where nobody but you gets to chime in. Piche?

    i just dont see why you would come into this forum, which asks for veg*ns, and try to give us information that is pro-meat as if it is not like we have never done the research and know that we can get everything we need without it. if you don't agree with it, fine, don't try to change us. we wont try to change you, and we weren't until you came here.

    I suggest you eat some fish and then read the topic header again. If the nature of the question doesn't make itself ovious to you, then eat even more fish. Certainly do if you intend to study something for a grade. Geesh.

    i don't see where i am wrong in saying you aren't welcome here. you never stated you were a version of that. in fact, your first comment was a joke against our beliefs.

    The question is "how many..."

    Not a single response talks about a number or percentages.

    A joke against your beliefs? Listen smallfry, if I was making jokes about your beliefs I'd probably be answering to your mommy and daddy right now. Get over yourself. Shouldn't be too hard, you don't rise that high.

    Implies that ONLY those guys should discuss in this thread?

    Please tell me more about my fatness and unfortunate face, Fabio. Wow, you really do need to eat more fish. I think your diet is harming you more than you know.

    These days? I mostly vacation. Today, I'm at my office, burning DVDs for distribution, which leaves me a lot of free time.

    Those guys'd be preferred? Well, when you start YOUR OWN thread, be sure to tell people what kind of guys you prefer to participate in your little party, that way, you won't get hurt again.

    the OP is vegan, how is it not obvious that that is what this thread is about?

    The author doesn't state anything about restricting participants. You, on the other hand, seem to be very exclusive. This is a public forum, anyone can join and participate. Maybe you need to put some of that self proclaimed intelligence to use and develop your own bulletin board system.

    Now, I could have said something like "I'm not a vegetarian and I think it's a ridiculous aspiration."

    Rather, I made a joke which got you bent out of shape six ways from Sunday. Then I asked some questions which turned you completely inside out. Let me ask - in your university classes, do you do all the talking?

    Actually, nevermind.

    I'll end my participation in this discussion and offer my sympathies for your own unfortunate face and your sunken chest.

    As the person who created this thread I'll clarify, what I was looking for was a community and support of a plant-based diet lifestyle.

    If you choose to aid in that then fine, if you are a meat-eater thats fine but this is for vegans/vegetarians and the support for people who are.

    Ovo- Lacto Vegetarian here. No problems with my weight training, but did notice a lot of US people don't eat enough meat replacements! Bring on the tofu, weat gluten and beans is my motto! Definately noticed that being a non-meat eater it is essential to drink my protein shakes... There are plenty of veggie options on the market i noticed.

    Good luck!
