I'd be interested also in hearing from someone who's vegan. I've thought of vegetarianism for health reasons. However, I'd like to know why someone would take that additional step to being vegan. Is it a philosophy of avoiding all animal products? It seems like it would be very hard-is it? I'm really curious about it.

Anyone tried a vegan diet? or is anyone vegan? – 07-03-2012,02:43 PM
I have been thinking about going vegan but I think it will be really hard since I still live in my mom's house and don't really have my own fridge to store my veggies and fruits.
if anyone has any input on a vegan diet as in how to go about it or has a link to how you started I would very much appreciate any information.
Vegans do not eat anything that involves animal products. This not only means meat, fish, and poultry. They won't eat cheese products, milk, or eggs, as this involves keeping the animals caged up. I am not sure if a true vegan will eat eggs that come from uncaged hens. I believe some will and some won't, depending on their belief. Vegans have to be really careful with their diets to be sure they get enough protein and certain other nutrients found mainly in animal products.
That's about all I know. But if you research this I am sure you'll find tons of information on the 'net.
Though I will say that I do support anyone that decides to go this way because on the whole it is prolly healthier for you. But like Mar said you have to watch your proteins etc as without meat you need to find other sources for these and other meat beased nutrients.My Upcoming Trips

If only for health reasons, I believe that most have "degrees of veganism". If going vegan "for the animals", then it would be no meat whatsoever. I have a few friends in the varying degrees categories. One eats no meat except fish, another eats no meat but does eat that which the animals produce (eggs, milk, cheese, etc...). However, they both go "organic" with those products when they do eat them.

My BIL was strictly Vegan for about 4 years. And then he decided it wasn't that easy to get nutritious meals and he got bored with it. So he switched to being vegetarian. Never ate any meat what so ever for 20 years. But he found he was gaining too much weight in the last 10 years. Last year he decided he wasn't getting enough protein so now he eats a low fat diet including meats and has lost the weight again.--Denise
Vegan is an old American Indian word.
It means "Bad hunter".
Vegans also don't wear leather belts or shoes or any product derived from the animal.
If I were a better, more creative cook, I'd probably try out a vegan diet. Some people have had some really nice health improvements when doing it right.
I was a vegetarian for a few years back before I had kids. For some reason, having kids made me need more flesh.
To this day, I prefer vegetarian dishes. I probably haven't eaten a steak in over 20 years. Sights and smells of bacon and sausage make me gag.
I think people are just made differently. My day needed meat to be the center of all of his meals.
