Have you ever attempted to go completely vegan, I have tried this several times only to fall back into my old lifestyle? I don’t eat a lot of animal products, but I do consume animal products a few times per week. I have tried several times to go completely vegan, I just can’t go long-term without animal products. I don’t eat any dairy products at all, most of my protein is plant protein, but several times per week I need a little meat in my diet to feel satisfied and complete. Eggs are my main protein source most of the time, when I have meat it is mainly grass-fed and white meats. So why does one become a vegan, is this something you must start out very young doing, or can you become a vegan cold turkey?
I am a huge animal lover; I get upset hearing about how animals are mistreated and I do donate to several animal organizations. Many true vegan’s experience an emotional attachment to animals, this is probably the most influencing motivator which keeps them on their vegan diet. For me, I feel an emotional attachment to domestic animals, but much less of an attachment to the animals we use for food. I do have a compassion for animals of all kinds, but vegans seem to have an amazing emotional connection with all types of animals.
