Meat is not what gives you energy. That would be carbohydrates which are found in breads and pastas [meat is low in carbs and a large part of the Atkins Diet].

I'm a vegan. I did belly dance as a vegan. I even performed on stage. Never had a problem.

Welcome to VB!

I think there are some other dancers on VB who might be able to quell your fears...

Anyway, a veg*n diet can be perfectly healthy and balanced, and I hope you decide it is right for you

Protein, carbohydrates and I think fat..? is what gives you energy. A good source of protein with essencial aminoacids is soy.

i was veggie all through my teens (and since then of course). the only problem i encountered was my mother but i just offered to cook more and as a result became pretty good at it so maybe a blessing in disguise
