My classmate (we study at a medical university) in the second year decided to povegan. We laughed at her (after all, any doctor will tell you that there is nothing useful in vegetarianism), but she could not be dissuaded. And now, after a year of veganism, she began to have specific health problems (anemia about 80g / l, weakness, fatigue, etc.). After going to the doctor, she was naturally told to change her diet, but then there was a snag))) She vomited even after small pieces of meat / chicken, which is not surprising, because the enzymes dozed off a little) well, in general, she started with chicken broths and only later year more or less normalized blood counts and stopped disturbing digestion. She said she wouldn't do it anymore :)
I have been vegan for 2 years. My decision was due to an irresistible desire to limit myself in something - my choice fell on food. Over time, when I managed to get rid of my obsession, I returned to my usual diet. I don’t regret it - I can change my mind at any time)
good evening. I have been a vegetarian for 4 years with great pleasure and benefit for myself. the return came very trivially - I went to university and became a homeless student. and it is cheaper to buy sausages, and it is easier to cook than to look for greens in a metropolis at a reasonable price and decent quality. I don’t regret returning to meat, sometimes I’m still a vegetarian when I want to and there is an opportunity (mainly in summer, when products are available and their quality is higher)
Has been around for a long time. I liked it very much, but I mocked friends and relatives according to their words. At the 5th month of pregnancy, my husband and our mothers insisted in a categorical manner, they had to return to the traditional "Russian" diet. And so it hung for a long time in meat-eating. For more than a year she was breastfeeding, and then there was a lot of trouble with the child, by and large it was not up to herself. When my daughter grew up, I gradually returned to my favorite diet, I don't eat meat from the word at all. It was agonizing to return to meat products, the weakness was unpleasant and sticky, I didn't get enough sleep, and the reaction was different, my own smell was different, everything was not so. Probably, personally, I would rather not eat meat, this is how I work, this is my metabolism.
I always feed on my inner feelings. That is, if I feel that I do not want to eat meat and dairy products, I do not. If I feel that I want to eat them, I eat. But before, I did not eat meat, fish and dairy products at all, replacing them with other healthy products. The quality of my life was the same as after I started eating meat. Now I do not eat fish, dairy products, but from time to time I eat meat. I fully support the idea of quitting eating plant foods, but I also think that if you really want (for example, fish), then why not eat it ?! Of course! If a person does not eat food of animal origin for reasons of cruelty to animals, then you need to adhere to your principles.
Hello! I've been a vegetarian for two years. I don't know what I was doing wrong, I tried to eat right, but on vegetarianism, not only did I gain 20 kg (this would not stop me, there are worse things), so one day I went to the doctor and realized that everything was rolling. I had terrible tests and I am still recovering hemoglobin. I lost 20 kg by starting to eat meat. The idea of vegetarianism is good, but not for everyone.
I believe that most of the problems of vegetarians and vegans are due to the fact that they cannot eat properly in a complex way. Absolutely all amino acids, omega 3,6, vitamins, iron, can be obtained from plant foods. And if extinguished with coals alone, naturally there will be problems
I was a vegan for a year, a complete rejection of fish meat, milk and eggs. I had pharyngitis after becoming a vegan, my throat was completely healed, the pharyngitis was gone. Then, after a year, he began to eat meat again, and a year later the same thing began, only twice as bad. I was in the hospital, completely killed my stomach with antibiotics, as a result, in addition to pharyngitis, gastritis appeared. Again he gave up meat, his throat began to recover again, the mendals almost halved. In order for you to understand, the mendals were so inflamed that they reached the uvula in the throat, and never passed. Sorry for the mistakes, I'm illiterate.
I haven't eaten any animal products except milk for two years. at the age of 14, being too impressionable, I watched a film about how animals are killed, and decided that I would never eat meat again.
these two years passed like a fog. I was constantly asleep, dropped out of school, I didn't have enough strength for absolutely anything, I stopped communicating with anyone at all, there was no energy for this either. oddly enough, I got fat enough, apparently from an excess of carbohydrates, although I replaced animal protein with vegetable one and tried to consume the necessary amount of protein and calories.
the condition was terrible, from that moment on I developed chronic fatigue and weakness, which only recently began to recede. (after 2 years, as I eat meat).
I started eating meat again very abruptly, I just felt like it HARD.
I remember the days of my vegetarianism with horror.
Because I wanted to. Just after 4 years of vegetarianism I wanted meat. The first day I was nauseous, the second I ate an average piece of meat for the whole day, now I eat from time to time. Many people say that the skin color has become fresher and more vibrant.
Among other things, there are characteristics of the organism. Everyone has their own. You need to listen to the reaction of your body. Do not follow the lead, but just listen. And what goes wrong must be changed.
By the way, peoples who consume a lot of animal food and eat little plant food are more prone to alcoholism (US Indians, indigenous peoples of the North).
As a child, I never digested meat. I just didn't get a piece in my throat, frankly. From this I came to the conclusion that vegetarianism is my way. And then I realized that all this is due to the fact that my mother simply does not cook well.
My dad hasn't eaten meat for 5 years, probably if not more. Then gradually weakness began, weakened immunity began to constantly freeze. After he began to lose consciousness out of the blue, he turned to a doctor, who, after passing the tests, strongly recommended that he still eat meat. And now for half a year ugh ugh ugh ...
I was a vegetarian for 12 years.
But not of my own free will - my mother was and is a convinced vegetarian, never bought meat or ate it, and did not allow anyone to feed me with it. Therefore, until I was 12, I never tried it, even out of curiosity, but I always really wanted to. Then one day, while visiting, I asked for a piece of beef, and since then I cannot imagine my life without meat. Sometimes I even forget that there are vegans in general and that I once had to be in their circle. I love meat, I can’t and don’t want to give it up. Now I'm 19, and I've been consciously eating meat for 7 years. I don't see the disadvantages of eating meat, but the disadvantages of vegetarianism are that until I was 12 years old I was very thin, and still cannot gain enough weight.
I had such an experience at the university on the 2-3 course (1, 5 years approximately). I started because I watched the film Earthlings (or whatever it is), in general, I was impressed, it is not pleasant to look at the death of animals.
I did not eat only meat, everything else - eggs, milk, cottage cheese, etc. my diet was, but I will not say that I tried to replace meat with products with the necessary elements. In general, I did not think about it.
As a result, I lost weight up to 39 kg, the low-grade fever (37.1-37.3) began and did not stop for a year and a half. I didn't understand why this was happening, and neither did the doctors. Because of anemia, I decided to eat meat, at the same time the temperature passed, the weight returned.
I realized that such a diet is not suitable for me. I just bother and figure out how many nuts I should eat instead of a piece of meat.
Behind 5 years of vegetarianism. I returned to meat when I just wanted it, I had never before had a desire to eat something meat, but then it arose - I wanted dumplings) Well, I ate it)
back to vegetarianism, or whatever. But the intestines and stomach worked better without meat)
Since childhood, I have not eaten meat, with the exception of only stuffed beef) if they make dishes from it. I can’t stand any other meat except beef, I’m just sick.
I haven't eaten meat and fish for a little over a year, while eating eggs and milk. Everything was fine with my health and well-being.
I started eating it again, because I felt the need for something more behind a simple diet, but I was not ready for that more. That is, I somehow stopped seeing the meaning in this. I still live with my parents, they continue to buy meat and sponsor this whole topic.
In short, to see the meaning in this, you need to become a vegan, you need to be active. I just didn't eat meat. And although it seemed to be good for my health, I just lost my meaning.
I still don't eat meat often, even rarely. I have never been attracted to him.
I'll tell you a short story of my so-called jump off the topic of vegetarianism.
I was a vegetarian for more than 5 years and it was not difficult for me to be in this lifestyle. I don't know why, but I can eat absolutely all food, be it meat or vegetables with unleavened cereals. So I lived myself and ate only healthy food, not even looking at meat and other similar products, always replenishing food supplies for several days in advance. And everything happened so banal that it was not even interesting. One day I just forgot to buy food for myself, thinking that at home there was something to eat from my vegetarian, but unfortunately at home I rolled a ball. And when I came home, then there was my brother sculpted and cooked homemade super delicious dumplings. Since I was very hungry, for some reason, without a second thought, I ate a huge plate of these dumplings. There was no remorse or anything like that. Was a vegetarian and did not become a vegetarian, that's all.
Sorry for this may be a wildly boring story.
Good evening! Was vegan from 12 to 18 years old. I refused only because I had to enter economy mode. And with poor health, you can't get all the nutrients on a budget vegan.
That is why I left the vegan.
I'll be back as soon as possible)
Stopped vegetarianism due to pregnancy, then lactation, and so on. She never returned to vegetarianism, because it is very expensive to cook for yourself separately from your husband and son (especially in time). I rarely eat meat myself (I just don't put myself a cutlet, for example), I don't really like it. I don’t wear leather, fur, cosmetics and chemicals that are tested on animals I don’t buy. I don't smoke.
I liked being a vegetarian, the idea of a healthy existence and all that. With the onset of pregnancy, the smell of meat immediately turned out and only from it, so I shared my positive experience with the doctors and on the appropriate forums, and then ... the child was born in the seventh month, resuscitation, feeding from tubes, a catheter in my head. Two months of fears, drugs, tears, struggles and complications for a lifetime. Of all kinds of tests and checks, one diagnosis was confirmed - anemia of the second degree, in one case in a thousand, can cause premature birth.
You know, if my child's health required killing a chicken, I would do it with my own hands.
I'll tell you two funny stories about how two of my close friends returned to consuming meat.
This man has not eaten meat for about 6 years, once a girl bought him a big mac and he ate it, there he ended up with a lean diet.
A man ate fish and did not eat meat for about 5 years, but it became too expensive during the first wave of the crisis.
I was a vegetarian for 6 years, I returned to meat last fall. I returned due to neglected health, but I assure you, the problem was not caused by veganism at all. Most of the time, everything was fine, while I was engaged in myself, more or less regularly went to pull up on the site, and ate a lot of healthy food. Then, after a series of global failures in life on all fronts, I got carried away with the abuse of stimulants, and regular binges. Mental and physical health sank, and after several weeks of severe depression, manic attacks and other joys, it was decided to firmly pull myself together. By that time, I was lucky to keep my job, so after I paid off all my debts, I spent my last money on a subscription to the rocking chair. The pace of life has risen to unprecedented heights, tk. self-hatred turned out to be a very fierce motivation =) But physically taking it all out without falling asleep on the go and without losing consciousness turned out to be difficult without meat, so he began to eat fish, and a week later he returned to meat. In short, I still think that veganism is right, and eating animals is not good, but for now I remain a meat eater. Perhaps when my standard of living rises to a satisfactory level, I will consider returning to vegetarianism. Such is the story.
