    A weird experience with B12, wonder if anyone has input? So I've been Lacto Ovo for 19, strict. I've taken B12 for most of it, though I was fairly lax the first few years. I had a blood test 6 or 7 years ago that showed my B12 and iron fine. I'm aware that blood testing for B12 is far from...

    Before I went vegan, I was depressed, had an eating disorder and mild anxiety. Now, 2 years of veganism later, I have never been happier and am rarely anxious. I noticed this huge change in mental health so I decided to create an experiment to study whether there is actually a correlation...

    Hi everyone! :) So lately I've been watching countless YouTubers who claim to eat over 3000 to 5000 or more calories a day. I grew up believing that major calorie intake caused weight gain. Right now my mind is all scattered and confused. Should I be eating more? I've been vegan for 7 months...
