I had been wanting to for years, and at first I was told no but now that they see me as old enough to make my own decisions I was told yes. I have always been great with and have loved animals, even in Alberta (known for their beef.) I have been on it for less than a month and have lost a bit of weight and have not put any back on (which is awesome) and I feel more awake and energized as ever! Love it!
I first went vegetarian because I had noticed I had gone the entire day without eating meat and wanted to see how long I could keep going. After a week, my mom decided to go buy me some veg foods because she was sick of seeing me eat macaroni all day. After about eight months, I went vegan when I checked this site out and went vegan for a year, but financial setbacks forced me to go vegetarian again. I’m in the process of going vegan again.
I originally went vegetarian because I found out that I had abnormally high cholesterol(aside from the amount of meat I ate, I lived a very healthy lifestyle and got plenty of exercise).
After going vegetarian, I began to explore the other reasons to live a meatless lifestyle and became a big supporter of those.
I learned a lot about vegetarianism at once.
I discovered that there were many very good reasons to stop eating meat and no good reasons to continue eating it.
Years later, I learned more about the meat & dairy industry after watching Meet Your Meat and that’s when I gave up dairy.
