Would you ever consider going vegan?

I already don’t eat a ton of animal products and have tried some vegan dishes, but going cold turkey seems excessive to me. Apparently the meat industry is contributing to global warming; would you consider going vegan or eating less animal products for the environment or your health?

  • I enjoy chicken, beef, salmon, and tuna too much. I don't eat pork these days, but venison, bison, and other red meats? They are just too protein dense to overlook and the flavors are amazing.

    I have no sympathy for animals in this regard. We are on top of the food chain, and predators don't feel sorry for their prey. Other animals in this world don't, so why should we? In the end, that is all we are, we are animals. Why not embrace it? That doesn't mean we should be cruel to our own kind and not have ethics and moral principles, but when it comes to nourishing our bodies, why put other animals over our own nature/preservation?

    The same principle applies to the dilemma of saving a pet vs. saving a human being from death. The human being has far more value than any other animal, even if that animal has personal meaning to you. It is the solidarity of the species, anything less is a dishonor.

  • I would, but like you said quitting cold turkey seems excessive. Going vegan requires a lot of research. It's not just "ew, meat", you'd be replacing many aspects of your lifestyle and not just foods and drinks. Clothes, makeup, furniture, beauty products, would all need to be swapped out for vegan alternatives if you really want to live a vegan life. It could be a potential blow to your wallet, especially if you're a student like me.
    In my country there aren't lots of vegan options yet either. Some restaurants do serve vegan food and grocery stores have also started selling products from vegan brands, but a lot of it is expensive. So if you don't always feel like cooking everything from scratch with a million different ingredients that replace non-vegan ones, or paying extra money on stuff like vegan cheese, your options are a bit limiting. So that would also require lots of research in terms of fun but simple vegan dishes to cook.
    There's nothing wrong with any of the things I mentioned, it's just a pretty big lifestyle change that takes a lot of time, effort, and a little bit money as well. Plus it would mean I'd have to force my family to accommodate me whenever I want to eat with them, either by going to a restaurant that also serves vegan food or by telling my mom what to cook for me. Or even me having to bring my own food. All of it just seems like a hassle. I think I'd go vegetarian before I go vegan, since it wouldn't require a total lifestyle change and I think my mom could live with cooking veggie food for me lol. It would also open up more options for me at restaurants.

  • As much as I love my vegetables and hate meat I can't go vegan, vegans have no cheese.
    Also if everyone on the planet was vegan we would have a serious problem.
    If I go vegan and want to consume the same amount of calories and energy I get from meat then I'll be causing more harm to the environment than consuming that small piece of meat.

  • Me and my brother is very much the same person in a lot of ways and total opposite in others. One of our main differences is that he is a vegitarian and i am a hunter. There is a lot of good arguments both for and against, but i think it all boils down to one thing; which argument do you personally agree with. With this ideology, you can not only tolerate the other mindsets, but also understand them even if you dont nessesarily agree with them.

  • I eat vegan, and never took me any effort. And I like the taste of meat, eggs, milk, and everything else.

    Simply put the vegan cuisine is more exquisite, makes you start looking like a hottie, and making good feels so good.

  • There's a few reasons why someone would go vegan, and they're all stupid. If you really wanna save the enslaved animal species, then buy meat from farmers who treat their animals with care. Stuff like that. I buy organic stuff. When I buy milk I buy grass fed milk. Simple as that. Going vegan helps nothing and no one. Also I wouldn't be able to build muscle as a vegan.

    • You buy meat from anywhere, you somehow encourage into the demand for more meat. So guess what even if you buy it from a farmer, IT DOESN'T FUCKING MATTER! The more you buy it the more the "farmers" that are cruel to the animals will kill them. Its evidently a means to an end. And I think google search will get you to a page that will clear your MAJOR misconception about how you won't be able to make "muscles" if you go vegan.

    • It actually is as long as you eat a lot. I eat vegetables because of its nutritional values sometimes. Too much meat may mean too much fat and oil which is not good for the body.

    • Too much meat, absolutely. No meat though leads to protein deficiency which can lead to anemia.

    • True although you can eat some vegetables that has iron and all since those types exist but if not you can't entirely quit it

  • I see your "no" and raise you a "FUCK NO!" =)

  • I try to choose sustainably sourced animal products, and I try not to eat a lot of meat. But no, I probably would never go vegan, or even vegetarian. I think it’s more important to choose sustainable and humane animal products than it is to cut them out completely.

  • What a lot of people don’t realize about going vegan is that it goes beyond just the food you eat. You can wear or own any piece of furniture made from animal skins. You also have to look at the products you’re using. If you’re vegan, you can’t use any products that test on animals. So you’ll have to start reading labels. So it’s not just a diet but a lifestyle.
