    A vegan diet can just as easily be a junk food diet, so make sure you're replacing meat, dairy, eggs, honey & animal by-products with healthy fruits, veggies, beans/legumes & whole grains- not analogs for what you were eating before!

    Definitely! The healthy vegan lifestyle requires that you learn about health and nutrition. I overhauled my entire diet (not in the weight-loss sense, but in the sense of the food I eat to survive) and now have so much delicious variety! Look for vegan cookbooks that don't rely on what some of us call "omni-subs," eg, fake meats and cheeses. Eat real food!

    +1. Veganism for the win. :)

    Veganism has made me a better person more in tune with my body, animals, and the planet. I am also better athlete and recover much faster between workouts because of a whole foods, plant-strong lifestyle! Go Vegan!

    Woohoo for veganism! :)
It's much more fun than "dieting", and "accidentally" keeps my weight in a healthy range. :)

Oh, and did I mention it helps the planet and animals too? ;D
