    What're your personal reasons for wanting to do this?

    I'm willing to bet that the majority of the board wouldn't recommend it.

    You need to sort out your diet first, otherwise if you go vegan to lose some weight you will probably gain it back when you start eating meat again.

    There's healthier meat than steak. Eat chicken, turkey, and fish instead.

    Jesus you guys, quit giving advice about avoiding steak, red meat etc. It isn't bad. For hells sake look at the paleo diet study I posted, they lost more fat and had better cholesterol levels than the seafood only group. Sometimes the ignorance kills me about this shit.

    I was vegan for a long time and I say if you like a carb centric, phytoestrogen filled and gigantic (bordering on unrealistic for an athlete eating every 3 hrs) portions of food that contains large amounts of said phytoestrogens then go for it.

    The health benefits aren't there, hell even the ecological benefits often touted aren't there....just look at what soy farming is doing to the Amazon. The only real leg vegans/vegetarians have to stan on is a moral one which can't be argued.

    Ya I was for a few months, I try things out before I suggest anything to clients. Mine was curiousity, not weight loss, or being a hippy.
