I may not be officially

I may not be officially vegan but I only eat cheese and the occasional egg because I HAVE to. So by my reckoning I still count.

Yeah

I eat meat, but it's usually with chicken. Over the course of any normal day, I eat no meat, though I have no principle against it. You have to get your complete proteins. Though I do applaud vegans for standing up for what they believe in.

Err...

You can get all the protein you need on a vegan diet. I'm not saying a lot of newbie vegans *do*, but you can. ;-)

Haha, I'm not vegan for

Haha, I'm not vegan for animal moral stuff. I mean, I care about it, but it's like a bonus. I went vegan for health reasons and plus, I think animal products are just really gross.

Also, the idea that you need to get protein from meat is the biggest lie (Well, no. The idea that you need to get calcium from milk is actually a bigger lie, but I'm not going to start that rant.) I have -never- had any protein (or calcium) deficiency problems and I've been vegetarian for most of my life (and vegan for the past few years.)

I eat beef and pork very

I eat beef and pork very rarely (Like.. twice a month for beef, twice a year for pork. I hate pork, except when it's bbq'd lol)

Otherwise I eat chicken and fish..
But I do eat A LOT of vegetarian meals for dinner here at college.. sometimes for lunch, too.

Nope. They're veggie based products, like veggie burgers (we've had those here twice that I know of..), cheese filled shells, vegetable linguine... the list goes on. It's delicious. lol

Im trying to be vegan for my health. So its not really a principle thing, though I do applaud people who do it out of principle.

Hmm...

The longer you're vegan the more the health, environmental, and animal stuff all blends together.

I'm a vegetarian... and have

I'm a vegetarian... and have been for... 'bout four years. :D
(I'm 14... that's half of since I can remember. xD)

I could easily be vegan.. but, to be honest, I've never seen the point. >.>

Definitely a vegetarian for animal rights, though, so I feel like I deserve at least half a point for that one!

Actually...

From a health perspective, a lot of medical people say that you'd be better off giving up dairy than meat.

And vegetarian for animal rights only works if you hate chickens and cows, heh. If you had to live in the animal agriculture system for a while, I think death would be the better option, rather than giving eggs and milk.

I'm VEGAN

I've been for... A while. I don't remember how long. XD; A few years. But I love it. It was a little difficult the first year. But after that, it's been cakewalk.

And I've never had a serious like, malnourishment issue due to it... Okay, so I got a little B12 deficient once, but that was solved pretty easy. :P

And I have been vegetarian since I was about two. Meat grosses me out completely. Ew.
