Hi. I am new here and kinda confused. I've been off of eating beef and pork for 7 years, but I still ate chicken, fish, and turkey. Two years ago, I cut out all meat. I am working on becoming vegan. My family don't want me to go vegan, but I am so close to getting them to agree to it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/cool3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cool:">

Welcome. Is your family worried about your nutrition? There are lots of recourses on how to eat a healthy vegan diet. If you do some research fist to learn what foods you need to eat, it may put their minds at ease. There is a lot of helpful advice here on VB as well as links to other sites and book recommendations that you may find useful.

Welcome to VB! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sunny.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":sunny:"><br><br>
Good luck with your veganism, I was that way for a long time, thinking, "my dad wont let me". Eventually I just said sod it and did it anyway. I do most of my own cooking so it doesn't really affect him anyway.

Your family is probably concerned as much as anything else. Follow jojob's advice, and see where it gets you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I hope you find some help and advice here!
