I was 16 when I stopped eating meat, and 18 when I started to eat only vegan foods. It was hard for the first few months without meat (I lived with three meat-eaters at the time), but after that it became easier and easier. I've always liked to try different foods and new recipes, so it didn't take long for me to find a bunch of new favourites. I usually try to avoid the imitation products, and stick with eating vegetables, fruits, beans, legumes, whole-grains, nuts, and seeds. It's a lot simpler than many people think. As for restaurants, most have will a couple of vegetarian options, which can usually be made vegan by request.

it is the most important decision that I have ever made. I commend you for making this decision!! and please stick with it. The toughest part is dealing with meat eaters guilt. Many meateaters will try and talk you back into eating meat. I find that they do this out of guilt for their shortcomings. If they get you to eat meat too it makes them feel less guilty for what they are doing to animals, the earth and their body. You will find that not contributing to animal cruelty and not destroying the environment and better health will make vegan living the best choice you can ever hope to make and your only regret will be that you did not do it sooner. Good luck and congrats on your choice.=) you will be saving the lives of approximately 98 animals a year by being vegan!!!!! wtg!!

There is no greater good than helping your health, the environment & your fellow animals. Veganism is how to achieve this.

It's great. Concentrate on Greens and Beans - there where the nutrition is. Meat is fine if you can deal with it. It's a big emotional factor for a lot of people. Then some people say it's REALLY healthy, and the next person says it will kill you for sure. But leaving it behind - along with eggs and milk and cheese - never hurt anybody. So give it a try. A really neat book on all this that's filled something pretty interesting information of plants to eat is Dr. Fuhrman's book. He speaks on PBS about diet - and this is vegetarian although he doesn't use the word so much. He doesn't mind if you had a little meat but he doesn't encourage it. Mostly he's after cutting meat, fat, high protein out of the diet.
