    So, last summer I went veggie for a couple months. At my doctors appointment my doctor did not clear me to be vegetarian because I already was pretty skinny and had a fast metabolism. Now I am back to eating meat, but I try to eat it only 3x a week and only white meat or fish. The chicken and turkey I eat are usually cage free and without hormones and antibiotics. I really tried to go veggie but I can’t. I don’t drink milk and I get cage free eggs, but I just feel like there is nothing else I can do to really help animals. Do you guys have any suggestions or tips?

    Honestly, it’s really easy to actually gain weight from vegan food! If you like baking and buy some vegan candy a few times each week and you eat bread and stuff… You can get a very high calorie vegan diet. Obviously you should still be healthy, but I’m just saying that it’s very possible to gain weight and eat unhealthy stuff as a vegan too!

    Honestly, you can still be ‘skinny’ and be vegan and vegetarian. The doctor isn’t giving you any options obviously, probably because they don’t understand or care on why you want to be ‘veggie’.
    Try eating more protein/high calorie foods that are vegan/vegetarian. Like lots of nuts and cheese, and I know Soy Milk is also really high in protein which is also good, and you can get it in different flavors and what not.
    You just gotta look up things to make up to stay healthy. You have to try, not just give up because your doctor doesn’t care and says you’ll die if you don’t eat meat.

    Yeah yeah the cage free crap. Oh well, that’s not the point here huh.
    I’m wayyy to skinny and my bf is even skinner than I am, but he’s vegetarian and I’m vegan. I talked it through with my doctor and she was cool with it. Hey, it’s better to be veg*n and underweight than a meat eater and be fat. Just saying.

    high calorie/fat vegan stuff: nuts ( high in calories and fat but its healthy fat ) ex: 1/4 cup macadamia nuts has 200 calories and 21 grams of fat. avacodo , carbohydrates, vegan desserts, vegan shakes, some faux meat and cheese, just simply eating more food in general,
