What are the long-term problems?
@Konabeana All kinds of long term problems. I've known a lot of vegetarians and vegans for 40-50 years. Most of them started eating at least some meat when they got old.This happens with meat diets also. A lot of people eat like crap. That's true for meat eaters, and veggies. The human body can survive on pretty crappy diets for a long time. They might not thrive, but the survive. Long term it really starts to affect them though.
Of course when you introduce foreign foods into the body when you are vegan/vegetarian (eg meat), your body will have a natural reaction—sometimes deadly. That is not to say the diet choice has definite long-term consequences. I know several vegans and vegetarians that are well into their lives that are thriving on this diet. That is all to say that being vegan/vegetarian is (in the majority of cases) healthy.
@Konabeana It's only healthy if they do it right. And vegetarian is hard to do right. That's not saying nobody does it. It's just more difficult. It can be an excellent diet if done right.Those people I'm talking about who started eating some meat again started because they were already having problems. They didn't get sick or anything from starting again. I was a vegetarian myself for years. I didn't notice any ill effects when I started meat again.Yea, sometimes changes in diet can take some time to get used to it. This is why I don't recommend going all-in with a hard core vegan diet that cuts out too much at once.
