I remember reading a thread in which someone asked, "Which is worse, meat or dairy?" A lot of current vegans said that they feel dairy is worse, but most of them said they formed this opinion after going from omni to vegetarian to vegan. I want to know if there's anyone here who gave up dairy first, or who currently eats meat but no dairy.

From a craving point of view, I think it would be best to give up dairy first, before the meat (if you're a cheese addict). I think it would be easier to overcome the cravings that way.

That's my theory.

I gave up dairy first but still ate fish on occassion (pescatarian), however my last hold-out was eggs already in proccessed veggie food such as Morning Star.

Dairy for me played heck on my system including sinuses etc. Dairy was easy for me I do not like ice cream and cheese was just OK. I don't even bother with the fake cheeses because I don't care for the taste.

Oh, and I am now Vegan.

Whichever works for you as a long term thing I guess. For me, for heath, it should have been dairy first, but I kept eating small amounts of the stuff for a few years after I went veg.

Love the post? Why not buy the T-shirt!

I gave up dairy first. Then meat, seafood and eggs.

I guess it's all in whatever works for a person and this certainly worked for me.

Do people who have given up only dairy have some kind of special title?

I've never heard of one, but ovo-bovine-pollo-pesce-porcine-ovis-vegetarian is a start (that covers eggs, cattle, chicken, fish, pigs and sheep.... someone may like to expand on it).

I think Lactose Intolerant is the closest you're going to get, unfortunately.

My boyfriend gave up dairy before he gave up fish and seafood. (Pesci-ovo-vegan, right? )

It is called paleolithic nutrition. I don't know if that makes me a paleolithic person or not

Here is the basic premise:

I gave up drinking cow's milk first, then yogurt, sour cream but not cheese. Then I gave up cow and pig(and all other 4 legged beings) but still ate fish. Then I gave up fish but still ate cheese. Then I gave up cheese. It's just what worked for me.
