Well I have been a vegetarian for some years now, I went vegan for about two months, but I went back to just being a vegetarian because I am an athlete so I need more protein in my diet (such as dairy products) because I have pretty intense workouts. I want to stay vegan but I don’t know what to substitute in.
@gurt8477 I had this problem when I was on swim team in high school! It’s hard, at first, but if you eat lots of fruits, veggies, beans, lentils etc. then you’ll be fine (and way more energetic and healthy!) Take a look at PETA’s infographic on a vegan diet. http://www.peta2.com/lifestyle/infographics/ I personally recommend almond milk, it’s super healthy and tasty 🙂 And Boca makes some fabulous vegan meat alternatives. Good luck! 🙂
