Hello Veggie Boards

Hope this message finds you fine and dandy!

I have been slowly adopting a vegan diet over the past month, and have joined this online community to learn more about veganism.

It was originally for superficial reasons (I want lose some weight), and ended up coming across the book 'Skinny *****', which led me to other readings, movies etc, and a lot of it made sense to me.

I have been known to start diets in the past, and then sort of give up on them, but I feel like I am actually making a bit of a lifestyle overhaul and want to stick to it. I have the most lovely family and friends who are being extremely understanding and supportive, but aren't vegan, and it would be nice to connect with people who have been/are going through the same, to learn from their experience.

That ended up being longer than I expected...

Anyway, hello!

Hi Amrita,

Mercy For Animals has a free, beautifully-written vegan guide. The nutrition portion of the guide begins on page 7: http://www.mercyforanimals.org/files/VSG.pdf


Specific recommendations for a healthy diet include: eating more fruit, vegetables, legumes, nuts and grains; cutting down on salt, sugar and fats. It is also advisable to choose unsaturated fats, instead of saturated fats and towards the elimination of trans-fatty acids."
- United Nations' World Health Organization

My usual answer: I have never heard a convincing reason to eat meat.
