And I for one would rather get mine first hand… still working on that though. I thought you did a really good job at looking at this from an unbiased standpoint – thank you! At this point, I now have a much more balanced relationship with food, and I follow a clean eating diet full of real, whole foods. Robert, your experience with vegetarianism sounds very similar to mine in the type of food you now eat and the energy you feel.

It seems each day you hear about a new vegan restaurant opening up, a fast-food chain sinking its teeth into plant-based options, or more companies selecting meat alternatives to add to their menus — vegan and vegetarian diets are growing across the country.

Firstly, in my personal opinion, vegan diets are not optimal for humans. I consume animal products, although I am very careful to try and choose wild, pasture-raised, organic, and local options whenever possible. Well, that falls apart when we consider those raised in captivity. I actually had one parent tell me I was allowing my child to miss a childhood milestone… the Happy Meal. Risk of disordered eating Orthorexia is a type of eating disorder that is defined by an over-fixation on healthy eating patterns. Inhibition of zinc absorption on vegan and vegetarian diets Similarly to vitamin B12, vegan and vegetarian diets can result in low zinc status. Totally agree! Vegans, on the other hand, abstain from any and all products that come from animals and instead follow a fully plant-based diet. But, like Matt says, it takes planning and attention to what options are out there.
