That proves your diet makes you weaker than vegans.Nothing wrong with vegans until they ioen their mouth and insist on telling you all about veganism. Personally I am a devout carnivore but I dont keep telling people about how much I enjoy eating meat!!
That proves your diet makes you weaker than vegans.
However, if you did keep telling people how much you enjoy eating meat it'd prove your diet makes you more aggressive than vegans.
Ok.Non aggressive need not equal weak.
I hope that's vegan humour rather than deliberate obtuseness, but in order to put things right for you:I have been veggie for 20 years, Vegan for 6 I think, I don't eat salad more than once or twice a month. Some people seem obsessed with it as if it's the only thing that's made of vegetable matter they can imagine.People have always made depictions of their lives and while berries and leaves are easier and safer to gather for food than a large animal, I've never seen any Bushman paintings of salad.

Because it actually did contain porkies ?Had to giggle!
No porkies: vegan activist in flat-share with pig she 'rescued' from abbatoir fed animal on Wagamama takeoutsMost vegans believe in saving animals from the slaughterhouse by sticking to a plant-based diet.www.telegraph.co.uk

Just for the record I've been vegetarian-pescatarian since 1985. My most recent medical check up less than a year ago indicated that I had no vitamin deficiencies. B12 was on the low side of the acceptable range. I don't take vitamin supplements.There's lots of reasons to follow a Vegeterian diet, and if you are only Pesca-Vegetarian as I am, it's really not too difficult and is actually pretty healthy, as confirmed by 'Science' - as long as you take some essential vitamins and minerals that you can't get from that diet, namely B vitamins mostly.
The body does need protein in the form of meat whichever way it can get it. Organic and pesticide and anti-biotic free meat being most ideal. And go easy on those GdL infused salami sausages and processed bacon.
But eating too much fish can be bad for you as well. Especially if you have Gout. Then there's all the Mercury in Tuna and whanot. Some processed Salmon is less than ideal too.
I supplement my diet with a full range of B vitamins, plus Zinc, Magnesium, D3, C.
It cost me over 80 quid my last re-stocking that will last me a little over 3 months.
I've never met a Vegan who supplemented at all. Maybe a bit of B12 and Iron if they were female. There's at least half a dozen B Vitamins you need to take. But yes, B12 is probably the most important. It can be deadly to not have enough of it, and if you drink as well it will deplete your system's natural stores. You can die from Pernicious Anaemia. But you can get it from dairy products as well. Alcohol burns out the body's internal pathways of nerves and you can get peripheral neuropathy (numbness and tingling in the extremities which can also be painful). Plus it destroys your 'Intrinsic Factor' in the Stomach so your body can't even 'bind' to the B12 that you do have.
During a chat with a colleague approaching retirement, who did his military service in the IDF armour,, it transpired that we are both vegetarian. I was a bit surprised since he didn't exactly seem "the type".I have to admit, the smell of burning meat does now repulse me after not eating it for so long (25 years or more). But so does fish sometimes. I don't often get the opportunity to 'entertain' guests so much these days, but when I did not so long back, I was happy to buy some very nice meat and cook some delicious meat dishes for them. I did this several times in fact for a few dinner parties where I was in charge of the cooking for the evening.
I didn't really mention the vegetarian thing. I knew it would become quickly apparent. A dozen or so people eating meat and me just eating the vegetables (I was buggered if I was going to provide a 'substitute' on top - easier to go without - I'm not starving). Soon enough someone would notice, and I'd explain myself. I'd just say 'oh I don't like the taste of meat' and leave it at that and move the conversation on.
But every now and again you get a meat eater as bad or worse than a Vegan. Why don't you like the taste of meat? Do you do it on religious grounds? What do you think of people who do eat meat?
No one expects the Spanish Inquisition.
Look, some people don't eat meat. Some do do it on religious grounds (Hindus and Buddhists), some do it on health grounds, some do it as a discipline of ascetism, though they may eat meat now and again for special occasions. Doesn't make them a hypocrite. Sure, I met lots of vegetarian hypocrites. "Oh yah I'm a vegetarian" but would eat meat every single ******* time it was put in front of them.
Last docu I saw involving Bushmen they were eating some sort of wild ground nuts (as opposed to tree nuts, not ground up), because that was all they had, the hunters hadn't been successful that day and a lot of the gatherers stuff was not in season, and the nuts had a toxin that meant you ate too many you felt sick, I can see why they didn't celebrate that in a painting.I hope that's vegan humour rather than deliberate obtuseness, but in order to put things right for you:
There is currently no reliable food source for b12 that is not fortified or fed b12 in it's food before slaughter, soil levels of the bacteria who make it are lower than they were before. Luckily it's added to some plant milk and is present in vegemite, marmite etc.Just for the record I've been vegetarian-pescatarian since 1985. My most recent medical check up less than a year ago indicated that I had no vitamin deficiencies. B12 was on the low side of the acceptable range. I don't take vitamin supplements.
I'm pretty sure that a person living where I do in Israel or in Western Europe has access to all the sources of nutirition necessary for those who don't eat meat / poultry, without needing to resort to vitamin supplements.
