Eh? I often eat vegan for health reasons (cholesterol, mostly) but nothing else (ie. I love killing edible things and eating their flesh).

Indian vegetarian is quite good; I got a bunch of palak paneer, mutter paneer, and baigan bharta out shopping tonight.  But also some Sheboygan bratwurst because meat is delicious.

The homo sapiens digestive tract isn't as long as a true herbivore, nor as short as a true carnivore.  We're omnivores by evolution.  Both tearing canine teeth and chewing molars support this.

Just by a sheer coincidence, one of my co-workers today was reading a book about raw foods.  I told her, "I can't do the raw foods thing. Bacon tastes terrible that way."

Lifelong vegetarian here. I need to go on the record as saying that vegetarian restaurants suck hairy ballsack. They tend to concentrate on stuff that's supposed to be healthy, which tends not to taste all that good. When I go out, people always suggest them, like there are not vegetarian options at every other restaurant. Taco Bell is awesome sauce.

I've never gone or aspired to go full-vegetarian, but my belief is that you can get all essential amino acids and vitamins through non-animal sources. But even though I throw raw foods - green smoothies bolstered with kale, almonds, and flax seeds - into my mix, I don't eat the same thing every day.  An omnivore diet is more forgiving.

I like a good veg as much as the next guy, but we evolved to eat anything - meat, veg, whatever. So, I'm gonna take advantage of that, and enjoy not just my vegetables but my meat as well.

You're right, you can get everything from non animal sources. I'm vegetarian and it's really easy to have a very varied diet. I have MS and the advice from my neurologist is to be vegan if possible but I sometimes like a bit of dairy. There are a lot of doctors now who subscribe to the idea that many diseases are caused by inflammation and that can be helped by diet.

The MS clinic I go to has a nutritionist down the hall and he told me my diet has everything I need so I'm not worrying too much about the occasional egg or piece of cheese.

I sympathize, but you should be aware that a lot of dietary interventions are paired with shaky evidence. Physicians suggest that stuff under the premise that it's something at least partially helpful that can't really hurt, and that patients respond well when they feel like they have an active role in their treatment. This isn't to say that any dietary link to health is bunk, but the evidence for specific interventions has to be examined carefully.

Good luck with the MS. I've known a few people with it and wouldn't wish it on anyone.

Getting a kick out of this thread.  Vegetarian all my life, and just recently go into making my own smoothies.  Currently chugging down one with celery, broccoli, cucumber, arugula, spinach, orange, green grapes, and red apple in it.  Yep, just dumped the whole lot in, trying to put in more veggies than fruits.  All good things, plus a bunch of fiber from the leftover pulp.  It's a toothbrush for your colon!

I was a vegetarian for two years and most certainly concur. Even now that I eat animals on a regular basis (sometimes raw, sometimes whole, but never both raw and whole) I still lurve me a 7-layer burrito.

Spiralmonkey: many diseases are caused by inflammation and that can be helped by diet.


What I've done in the past and am trying to work my way back to is the up-day/down-day a/k/a alternate-day-fasting diet.  In a nutshell, eat 800 calories of high-protein, high-nutrition food M/W/F.  Eat sensibly the other days - no calorie limit but behave if you can.  It's a diet that needs self-restraint 3 days of the week, but you're not starving or cannibalizing yourself.  The diet in lab studies has shown huge anti-inflammatory benefits in lesser mammals and also huge longevity benefits, although those benefits have not been backed by human studies.  Chemical analysis attributes the results to Reservatol, found naturally in red wine but sold as a supplement in much higher concentration.

I felt better on that diet, although eating half a protein bar every 2 hours is not a filling meal.  But it worked while I was on it.

No, no it's not.  Yeast is classified as fungi.  Still good to go for vegetarians and vegans.

B12 is artificially added to nutritional yeast, not naturally occuring. Brewers yeast has b12, but at 5% RDA per 30g, you'd need to eat 2300 calories worth.

Vegan diets are extremely unhealthy.

That sounds similar to the 5:2 diet which seems quite workable. I've been thinking about doing it, just want to talk to a doctor or nutritionist first.
