  1. New Member Introductions
    So I recently have transitioned into leading a vegan life style! I'm very excited about this for many reasons and I'm very happy to have made this change. It's hardly even been a week from when I started, but I've tried to spend a lot of time reading up on things to avoid and things that are ok...
  2. Transitioning to Vegan
    I am really proud of adopting a vegan lifestyle recently. I am 31 days in, going on a lifetime. I am 40 years old and can honestly say I haven't had the healthiest eating patterns my whole life. I have had a very meat, dairy and sugar heavy diet my whole life. Thankfully, I have no medical...

    Hey guys, So I'm a 20 year old college student in NYC. I recently had to drop out for the semester because my unhealthy lifestyle finally took it's toll on me and landed me in the hospital. I am not home till September, working, saving up money and I will be returning to school in the fall...

    Hi fellow vegans and vegetarians! I'm so glad to join this community! Just a year and a half ago, I was a die-hard meat and dairy eater, and I didn't think I could ever omit these from my diet! In fact, when I stayed for a short time with my vegetarian in-laws, I would get out of the house to...

    Hi there, i'm a student in the UK who is trying to become vegan. None of my close friends are vegan. I only know a handful of vegans/vegetarians and come from a very carnivores family. Having spent 21 years eating meat, dairy, eggs etc. I have come to the realisation that any critical thinker...

    Hi everyone! I'm not a vegan or even a vegetarian yet, but I would like to make the move towards veganism. Any tips for a smooth transition?

    Hello everyone I am very new to veganism... as most of the people here and I'm kind of concerned here are a few questions: 1: Should I contact my pediatrician and talk to her about my vegan lifestyle to make sure I'll be healthy. 2: What kind of food should I buy? I already bought oranges...

    Hi! I'm Jordan and I'm a new vegan. I've been vegan the past month and some change, but I was vegan from Jan-Mar '15, also. It is so hard for me to stay committed to this lifestyle when I have zero support. When all my friends constantly go out to eat places that have nothing but crappy salads...
  9. Transitioning to Vegan
    Hi, I'm doing some research on how a vegan lifestyle can affect how you think, feel, and live. It doesn't matter if you're newly vegan or have been at this for a while, but please let me know what a difference this change has made in your life. Thank you in advance!:):)
  10. Transitioning to Vegan
    I'm about 90% vegan at this point. While I completely respect anyone's personal reason for going vegan, I do it not because I believe consuming animal bi-products is innately wrong but because the abuse the food/other industries inflict on these creatures is disgusting and has encouraged me to...
  11. Vegan Support Forum
    Hey all — I'm glad this community exists because I wouldn't be sure where else to turn with this question than people who may have experienced this before, when they were new. I am a week and a half into veganism, and I've gained six pounds. I need to lose weight, not gain it. I've been...

    Hey! I'm a freshman in college from northern California. I'm just starting the transition into veganism and would love any advice anyone has to offer! Thanks in advance!
  13. Transitioning to Vegan
    I absolutely love being vegan! Although it has only been 3 weeks, I feel like it's been one of the best decisions that I have ever made. It's the first decision that I feel like I've ever truly made. I've struggles with my weight ever since I can remember and eating disorders and eating...

    Hello everyone, I am transitioning to Veganism for 4 main reasons. Not necessarily in this order... 1- Health of my children (they see me eat more fruits and veggies then they will) 2- Health of the planet 3- My own health 4 Compassion for animals Now I have to learn how to cook healthier...
  15. Transitioning to Vegan
    I am 17 and I have recently stumbled on a bunch of documentaries (Get Vegucated, Food Inc, Forks Over Knives) that have made me want to no longer contribute to the unethical harm of animals in order to feed myself, so I want to start eating a vegan diet! I have considered this before a few...

    Hi! My name is Catherine, I started transitioning to a vegan diet(unintentionally) three years ago after I had some health issues, and I have been fully vegan for 11 months! I absolutely love this lifestyle, and I really felt myself thrive this way!
  17. Transitioning to Vegan
    About three weeks ago, I cut meat out of my diet and followed with dairy about a week later. I have never been prone to acne, but the past few weeks my skin has been breaking out. I assume my skin is just detoxing, but I wanted to see if this has happened with anyone else after the vegan...

    Hi there! Just wanted to introduce myself! My name is Megan and I just completed the 21 Day Vegan Challenge! I decided to do it cold turkey and did not ease into Vegan-ism (as some people recommended). I live in Maine, so no, there are not a lot of options so mostly I cook at home. Would love to...

    Becoming a vegetarian started out as an experiment during my sophomore year of high school. I would have never thought that I would be here, ending my freshman year of college, with no pork on my fork, and surprisingly, no milk in my cup (Sorry, that didn't rhyme. I was trying to think of...
  20. Transitioning to Vegetarian
    Hi, I'm actively planning on going vegetarian, but not sure what's the difference between being vegetarian and being vegan. I have heard it would be easier to go vegan first and then vegetarian. Help!
