ESFJ 2w1. I'm a vegetarian, not a vegan, but close enough. And I'm a vegetarian because my parents were, and I never grew up eating meat so I imagine it would taste disgusting and probably make me feel sick, the smell of meat usually makes me feel sick.

I was strictly vegan for 2 months, and then ovo-lacto, lacto... I'm what you'd call mostly vegetarian now, and I think it'll stay that way. I'm just not able to keep up with the supplements, and keeping myself healthy nutritionally when on a vegan diet. If I ever get to a point where I can, I will probably go back to it. You really have to know what to eat and keep tabs on nutrients when vegan.

I don't really like meat, but I also see animal proteins in general as a health issue, an environment issue, and a general animal holocaust issue. Like some weird Invader Zim episode where it emphasizes the dark side of humanity.

I see veganism as my only Fi-motivated behavior; my choice to abstain, while supported by my general dislike of the taste/texture of meat, is mostly the result of an internal moral compass. I find the idea of raising animals in awful conditions just to slaughter, package, distribute, and consume them really, really abhorrent.

That's because of the overwhelming fat content. It tastes like death and suffering. I bought smoked tofu a while ago out of curiosity and it reminded me of ham. It was so disgusting, I didn't expect it to be so extreme:D

I'm vegan for maybe 2 years now. I never took supplements. It's not even hard to make sure you get all nutrients. Just remember it's better to eat too many nuts than too few and eat bananas. If you eat both of that, you're save. You should also buy tropical things like coconut or avocado and just manydifferent things in general:)

It sounds like you're taking a pretty haphazard approach. I did a lot of research before I went vegan, so that I could properly fulfill my nutrient needs.

If you're not taking B12, or getting injections, then you're going to have major problems later. You simply cannot supplement B12 through your diet alone.

This stuff should either be known really well, or be monitored by your doctor. I hope you're taking appropriate steps towards your health. :kitteh:

I would do something about vitamine B12, otherwise you could become sick in the near future. I vaguely remember that a human body can store B12 for a few years before it runs out. Nuts are pretty awesome (when raw), but they don't contain vitamine B12.

Personally I'm neither vegetarian nor vegan. I do try to limit my intake of meat/seafood. I don't avoid products because there is a little bit of something in there, but when buying it separately I go for more ecologically friendly stuff for meat and MSC certified stuff for seafood. I simply don't enjoy meat at all, so I stopped eating it every day, combined with an increased consumption of raw nuts.

Good luck and take care of your health.

I'm an ENFP, 7w4 and I'm vegan. It's curently the most important thing in my life, and is more of a lifestyle than a diet. I'm choosing to be a vegan, since thats a way for me to change the world. And I also find it completely disgusting how we treat animals as lesser beings, by torturing them, exploiting them and eating them. Humanity lose NOTHING by being kind to animals, not in todays society. Speciesism is one of our greatest problems today, and is right up there with sexism, racism, and homophobia. I could go on for hours on this, but its enough for today ;)

i'm a vegan because i believe in the extreme views that living beings don't deserve to die for my taste buds to be happy for 10 minutes. okay i'm joking (sort of..)

i don't see how it's considered hard? i eat mainly whole foods (bought in bulk to save money) with some crappy food because,, hey,, i'm a teenager i need to keep myself happy somehow. throw in a b12 supplement ((which i never take but should)) and there ya have it. not remotely tricky.
