So, since going vegan almost a year ago, I was never fully convinced that I would be able to achieve a healthy existence without eggs/dairy. That's the confession part. The no meat part didn't concern me. I just had a physical and I asked my doctor if there was a test to check for protein and she said there was a basic test for that. My protein level is good, iron good, thyroid good (I was concerned about the soy/thyroid controversy). So that fact that I have been feeling like cr*p the last few weeks has nothing to do with my diet! Hurray! Oh, yeah and my cholesterol levels are all excellent. The good/bad/ratio are all excellent! So I just wanted everyone to know that I am a perfect example of someone who is vegan (well, strict vegetarian) and a perfectly healthy specimen! The end.

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/broccoli.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":bobo:"> Right on, Karen! So cool to get an affirmation like medical tests to say you're doing something really right for your body. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Karen: That is great news!!! It's always a good feeling to know that we are healthy. Of course, your great outlook on life probably also contributes to it. I think health has to be looked at holistically, and even if someone is 100% vegan and organic on top of it, if they are grumpy, sad, nasty people... well, their health can take a beating.<br><br><br><br>
You're a healthy person all round and it is a pleasure to "know" you.
