nope, but i've been veggie for several years.  just can't picture a world without yogurt and ice cream :crazy:.  good luck and have fun!  if your just doin it for a week, be sure to go get something tasty from your local vegan restaurant (if your town has one).

I have been a vegan for 6 months.

Going vegan isn't as impossible as it might seem, far from it, but it can be tricky learning what foods to eat. I feel great now, and have no plans of ever eating meat/eggs/milk again.

I think it's great that you are trying it for a week, but if you find it hard don't be too put off.

The key to being successful is trying lots of different new foods to find out which ones you like, and also not being too strict with yourself at first. For me and a lot of others I've talked to, easing into veganism is the best way. Good luck, if you need any help just post here or PM me.

Again, mad props.

i hang out with tons of vegans, i could never go that far. you can still eat meat, eggs and cheese and be healthy. i just dont eat them that often and i only eat really good quality meat. no fast food burgers.

most vegetarians/vegans dont do it for health reasons... ive been a vegetarian for a few months now, and my new year's resolution is to be vegan by jan 1 2004. im not doing it for health at all, i just feel shitty using/abusing animals and such.

I'm pretty much vegan except for the odd slip on eggs now and again, and pizza when someone offers it (maybe once every 2 months or so.) I'll be completely vegan by november, I made that promise a long time ago and since I'm moving out of home and only having the groceries i purchase for myself available (and not my mom's) I shouldn't have a problem.

I am 90% vegan. Diving into veganism is not usually recommened; as others pointed out, a gradual shift in diet and lifestyle is essential to making veganism a sustainable choice. Often people "try to be vegan" without much preparation or know-how, and become alienated. I have found the key is to learn how to cook and develop a small garden for your own fruit and vegetables.

Here is a thread I started in Cularinary Arts that has plenty of vegan/mushroom friendly recipes. Also, there are plenty of resources on the net if you need help.

Good luck :thumbup:

I'm a vegan as of last week. I had decided to just be a vegetarian, but I started reading very nasty things about dairy. Since I hate milk, (even though cheese and icecream are great) I just went full vegan.

I think the only difficulty in this is having to do my own grocery shopping soon.

good luck~

I was veggie for 3 years. 41/2, if you include when I ate fish and seafood ( I don't).
All I say now is, meat is great. Veggie was fun, and I tried a lot of foods, but I am so glad for meat again.
I never went vegan. I think that cheese cultivation is one of the few things that separate us from other animals, and to deny that is to reject your evolution.

I go to a private school where alot of kids are vegans. Its because of the religion, but its not required to be vegan, just lots people in that religion are vegans. So if we have church get togethers and stuff, the food is always vegan food. Ive gotten used to the taste of tofu and soy products. I love veggie pattties and i think veggie meat can make a great sandwitch!
I love meat and I dont think i could picture my life without it. I usually have at least 1 meat serving per day. I dunno, might try vegan life for a bit!

I am a rare meat lover who will say this, but some meat substitutes are ok. Some are assbad.
Vegan cooking tends to lack something for me. Like fat. I mean, fat really makes things taste better. Next time you cook bacon, save the grease, keep it in the fridge, and cook your poatatoes in it later. You'll thank me.

" hang out with tons of vegans, i could never go that far. you can still eat meat, eggs and cheese and be healthy. i just dont eat them that often and i only eat really good quality meat. no fast food burgers. "

take out the chesse (how can you call chesse healthy! www.notmilk.com

and make sure the MEAT is turkey or chicken

and that exactly what I do

I've been vegan for like 8 years or so, did so pretty quickly, over the course of about a month. It's forced me to learn to cook a hell of alot better than I did before. My shit's practically glowing.

NotMilk isn't a good site. The guy is a dishonest and says things about milk that aren't true. Milk is garbage, but this guy goes too far.

Also, chicken is probably the worst meat you can eat. It is loaded with chemicals like pesticides, herbicides, anti-biotics, etc. Chicken farmers actually grind up chickens to make chicken feed and use chicken manure as chicken feed (these things are also fed to cattle). Chickens are fed arsenic compounds to stave off infections. Next time you see a chicken bone with a blue tinge, that's arsenic.

Arsenic in chicken

I hope I don't come off as an asshole trying to tell people what to do. Just thought you might like to know.
