I couldn't but if I really wanted to I could be a vegatarian. Becoming a vegan can be hard! My niece,who is a vegatarian,wants to be a vegan someday. I see nothing wrong with it people who are vegan or vegatarian's. It just isn't for me!

No no NO way! I could never! It's SOOO hard! I mean, I COULD, COULD become vegitarian if I HAD to. I wouldnt enjoy it because i love meat. haha. but vegan? no way. the limits on what u eat is crazy! ice cream has dairy, so no ice cream, then no cake cuz it has eggs and milk, no dessert really. bread not really. so almost everything u cant eat as a vegan. vegitarian I could possibly do because I would be okay with the nutrition. i enjoy fruits, vegetables and i even enjoy drinking soy milk. so id be fine with that.

Well I don't know if its a fad because not a lot of people are vegans. more are vegitarians. I don't get vegans...most of them I think are in it because they think it will make them lose weight. I don't get why someone would want to be vegan. I get vegitarians because they do not want to kill animals. But vegans, with milk and even eggs no animals get hurt or killed. One of my friends is vegan, and I am very worried about her. because i think she did it because she wants to lose weight. But it's not a good idea because she does not even like fruits or vegetables and you can tell she is getting unhealthy and tired from it.

My niece is a vegitarian because of how animals are treated and killed! She has been a vegatarian over a year now. I'm sure she'll try the vegan thing but how long it lasts we will see! I don't think vegan is a fad and is a good way to lose weight! I also think when you are a vegan it doesn't make a difference in how many animals are killed for meat and all that at other stuff! I think people who become vegan are nuts!

No way, I love cheeseburgers and green chili with cubed steak. Does vegan mean no cheese? I love extra cheese pizza and Eggs and all that stuff. I'm with you, I have to have my food that I like but the key to everything is in moderation, more fruits and vegetables are a must for any healthy person. We can get carried away with red meat and that isn't very good for us. thanks for the good discussion and happy posting. Francisco

Vegan means NO animal products. That means no eggs, no milk, no cheese, yogurt, not even jello because it has ground bones in it.

What do you mean by Vegan, is it like completely avoiding animal products, including ghee/ butter, milk, cheese and all. Then It's very difficult to survive on mere vegetables and fruits. In fact in vegetarian food, I count eggs too because they are also pre-life products.

a vegetarian diet includes dairy products and eggs. a vegan one does not, vegans need to make sure they eat plenty of pulses, nuts etc to get enough protein, it is not that difficult i think but you do need to be more aware of your diet.

As much as I am an animals lover. I would not be able to be either a vegetarian or a vegan. As I love meat, and hate most vegetables.. I don't think I would be able to eat a healthy or well balanced diet as either. I am not sure I eat a well balanced diet now.. lol But I understand the reasons for someone becoming a vegetarian and vegan. I just could not do it myself.

hi blue65 No I could not as I like lean meat and lots of veggies and fruit, lo fat milk, multigrain bread, whole grains and cheese,and I am not going to stop eating some meat every'day as its an excellent source of protein and helps to keep my blood glucose level down where it belongs. I am a diabetic and will never be a vegan at all. it is fine for those who want to do it but I do not and will not. lol lol

I don't think it would ever be possible for me to become a vegan. I might be able to pull off vegetarian for a short period of time, but not a long term thing. I like meat, eggs, and cheese a little too much to be a vegan.

i'd find it difficult to become vegan, i am addicted to cheese. i have been vegetarian for most of my life but being vegan is trickier, you have to be careful with your diet to make sure you get enough protein etc. i might consider it at some point but not at the moment. there is another plus side to it though - provided you eat in a balanced way (i.e. not a diet of chips) it is pretty healthy, and i have never met an overweight vegan.

No, because I have enough trouble getting complete proteins around my allergy diet as it is

I really don't think that I could become a vegan. Maybe a vegetarian, if I really wanted to and/or put all of my efforts into becoming a vegetarian. But even then I think that it would be really difficult for me to do so.
