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.

I enjoyed reading Scott Jurek's book and also Rich Roll's book. They can do a Lot of running on a vegan diet!

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?
