Boni,

Thanks for sharing. While it is true that those who eat poorly "could have switched to a healthier meat-based diet and they would probably have felt better", I went from what would be considered a very "healthy" animal-product based diet to a vegan diet and still saw a huge surge in my energy level and athletic performance.

Let the naysayers say what they may, but there really is no comparison. (And I thought the protein numbers were total bunk.) Why is it that people that haven't tried veganism for themselves insist on begin experts on the subject?

Interesting NY Times article. I like the conclusion - working to get lots of people to decrease eating animal products is more productive than working to convert a few elite athletes.

I believe the official term is "unprincipled vegan" to denote that the person is not rejecting animal products due to principles regarding animal abuse but for other reasons.

In this article, one commenter refers to himself as a "non-principal" vegan ( I think it should be principle) - a vegan who chooses to be so purely for health reasons - I'd never heard that term before. The comments following the article are worth reading...your comments?
