I don't really understand. What's so bad about it?
When I was 14, i was diagnosed with cancer. My dad is a doctor and he did he research on it and he suggested instead of going for the traditional chemo therapy we try switiching to a raw vegan diet with shots vitamin C.
And it worked. So I've been eating like that ever since. I kept it completley for about 4 years and now for the past 4 years I've been adding starchy vegetables, grains and legumes back in and it's going great for me
That's the story and you know I'm slim and fit and occasionally people ask what I do and I tell them. It's not a secret. But always almost reactions are negative. People ask where I get my protein from and that it's not healthy and that I shouldn't do it. Everytime I go out with friends they're trying to get me to try cheese or meat or milk. Men, even worse. Typical first or second date is obviously having dinner so it's hard to get, because I tell them I need to go somewhere where they have vegan options and there were a few guys who said "this whole vegan thing isn't gonna work for me". What's their problem?
Even worse when I talk to other people who have to deal with cancer they react the same way, saying they would never do it. And I just wonder why? What do they have to lose?

People are always afraid of what's different and we don't understand.
I trained as a chef in the days when it was still a sin to be a vegetarian then vegens joined the club even though vegetarian and vegans have been round for such a long time.
I sopose it goes back when we men go out kill beast bring back cook eat.
next time someone says something to you about it tell them to pipe the fuck down.
it's got sod all to do with anyone else what you eat or don't eat.
as long as you're happy that's all that matters in life.0

I'm a vegetarian, I know it's a completely different thing, but people always react the same way as you just explained. 'What? Where do you get your protein from? Isn't that like super bad for you? But I don't care, because I believe in what I do and I feel okay? You should just not worry so much about people trying to get to change your believes or likes/dislikes. I totally understand why you wouldn't eat meat or other animal products. But that's me, 70% of the people wouldn't understand, and if you don't make your peace with the fact that people have different believes you're just going to continue feeling weird about it. Screw people that don't want to be with you because you're vegan. Like, that's just sad0
