Would you consider being vegan or have you been at one time? Are you now? What factors influenced your choice?

Fell off the wagon and now need some reminding of why I was vegan in the first place. Glad to meet you.

I am not a vegan. I love fish and meat. It is extremely healthy for you and tastes great. I would never consider becoming a vegan.

I always said that, but I was vegan for half a year...then vegetarian...than some meat and fish back in. Now I am wondering if it's time to reconsider and my weight and cholesterol are back up there again.

Vegan diest are probably one of the healthiest. But then, I like cheese and eggs too.

I'm vegan, organic too. Went on a macrobiotic diet when I turned 19 & 100% vegan inside of a day in 2000, I think. Initially, it was for health reasons (cancer) at an early age. Later, I needed to be 100% vegan to pursue spiritual practice. There are so many other influencing factors including the environment, animal suffering, world hunger & "over-population" crises that may also have contributed. I also feel a need to live my life the very best way I know how; we do only get one shot at it.

I consider myself a vegan although I do have honey. I make sure the honey is from a bee keeper that I can trust though so I am at peace with my decision to eat it. My health has improved out of sight since I stopped eating meat and dairy. I used to think my health was good and that everything was normal. Now I know that there is a better kind of 'normal'!

I am vegan- went veggie at 13. That was for the love of animals at that time. But I went vegan because of mass prodution of meat, dairy etc... And even with all this farmers are still losing out. I am not an activist but I do tell people when they don't eat organic they are eating antiboitics, pesticides and more of what you don't need. which can also lead to a number health problems.

I'm not but I have friends who are. They even make their own milk from soy beans. Frankly, they don't seem to be all that healthy. They are always coming down with colds, have lots of allergies and just seem fragile. That could be just because of their personalities and not because of their diet. But I need my eggs and cheese and bread. I couldn't go vegan.
