Why does it seem to be....that when ever I get into a converstation with an Omnie they alwyas bring up the whole "balanced diet" subject...as if it is impossible to be vegan AND eat a healthy balanced diet.<br><br><br><br>
Eating the flesh and breast secreations of other animals makes a diet automatically "balanced"??? Hmm. Don't think so.<br><br><br><br>
Honestly I am the healthiest person I know....there is not a single (meat eating) person in my extended family that isint suffering from some form of illness from extreme obesity to severe diabeties even sadly cancer(3 of my grandparents, my great aunts/uncle, and my older brother suffered from forms of cancer). I have never had a single major illness, I exercise 5 days a week, but somehow I am sickly just because I am Vegan??? I don't get it. Anyone else have the same problems.

sounds very much like what I go through and how my family is...it's really sad.<br><br>
I've heard more people I know tell me that I was too skinny in the past year, than of all the people combined who called me overweight, when I was THIRTY POUNDS OVERWEIGHT! and that was for a much longer period of my life too...<br><br><br><br>
it's always like, 'get some meat on ya', 'eat some meat, it's good for ya' etc.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wall.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":wall:">

It annoys me that the people accusing me of not having a balanced diet don't eat a balanced diet at all. They don't eat nearly enough fruit, veggies, legumes, whole grains, etc.

I still see TONS of people who eat very little carbs...<br><br>
um, guys, it's the base of almost every food pyramid in existance and you do need a lot of it!!!<br><br><br><br>
with that said, everyone seems to think that tons of meat, dairy and just a bit of fruits and veggies is the way to go...<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wall.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":wall:">

I get this,too. Sometimes I think balanced diet=high protein diet<br><br>
A lot of the people who want me to eat a 'balanced diet' are very overweight and constipated. Maybe they know their diet is bad for them, don't want to see me getting better. Misery loves company.<br><br><br><br>
Or they may not want to believe all these foods which are supposed to be good for you are causing them harm. Y'know, you gotta follow the food pyramid! (I always thought it was weird the beans were grouped with the meats. What is that about?)<br><br><br><br>
It gets better...People even asked me if I took supplements or multivitamins. No one ever asked me to take a multivitamin when I was eating Burger King and pizza on a regular basis. My grandma even wanted me to see a nutritionist. That was never suggested when I was eating loads of sugary foods on a daily basis.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/dozey.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":tired:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:">
