Hi, I'm 22 yrs old and I'm looking to sign up to the army. I've gone through the information packs that have been sent to me today. I have a slight problem though. I'm a vegan due to an eating disorder I was born with, therefore the only food I can actually is basically vegetables. I consulted them at army.mod.uk and they said that it "may be a problem on the fields but they try to cater for all dietery needs." Basically I've GOT to stick with it. I cannot eat meat, fish, eggs etc AT ALL. Just mainly vegetables. So I'm just wondering WILL they cater for my dietery needs or will they not? My dad served in the Light Infantry in the 70s through to the early 90s. Would the army life be compatible for me? My medical condition is called "phenylketonuria." At one time I had to weigh my food such as chips and potatoes but now that's not the case as my brain has stopped growing. If I eat meat, eggs, cheese, fish or anything like that it effects my nervous system and my immune system. I don't need ANY treatment or anything else apart from not eating the foods I have mentioned. Any help with this will be appreciated. Thanks.
