As someone who has been vegetarian for 2 years - I would like to say that it all boils down to personal issues. As it comes to me - I never rage about what others eat as long as they don’t bother me about not eating meat. In fact, I believe that most of my friends don’t even know that I’m vegetarian - never felt like proclaiming it. Since every one else in my household eat meat I don’t make a fuss about it being around and if one of my meat eating friends come over I don’t really mind cooking if for them - its common courtesy. Thought do mind that I might cook it wrong as I don’t do it every often.
My only question is - why would you associate yourself with wayward people? If they’re snobbish, always-know-the-best and tiresome - why don’t just laugh them off and keep up with your ways?
Fun fact: once I was in funeral get together after burial (I have no clue how its called in English) where there was nothing I could eat - literally there was meat and fish in every dish, even potatoes were smashed together with meat. Since I had to sit in a bus for hours to get there I was pretty hungry. What did I do? Ate fruit and did vodka shots - that’s what we vegetarians do when all other options are taken away.
BTW I wasn’t the one who was the most drunk when it all ended.
I'm vegan and an athlete.
Just reading the stupidity of the ignorant fool who started this thread leads me to believe that I shouldn't waste my time on this site.
The question must be asked: was your retardedness the result of veganism, or did you become a vegan because you were retarded?
So after seeing pictures of Angelina (Skeletor) Jolie at the Oscars, I was preparing to make a nice post comparing her scrawny malnourished vegan frame to that of Jennifer Aniston's non-vegan hardbody. It was to come complete with photos of Jennifer's ass and jokes about why Brad Pitt wants to rattle the bones with Angelina instead of passing the time by bouncing quarters off Jennifer's butt.
Much to my chagrin, it was not to be. Apparently Angelina is actually a former vegan. She says veganism almost killed her. I don't know what kind of diet she has turned to now but I'm pretty sure it doesn't include angus beef or milkshakes since her arms look like pipe cleaners.
Never fear. Not all is lost. In my quest to make fun of vegans I did find this gem of delusional extremism. Enjoy!
I know this one young lady with the most amazing genetics; Native American, Hawaiian, Chinese, Irish, German etc.
Somehow this all comes together quite well.
She had her first kid about a year ago and almost immediately went vegan.
At first she leaned out and lost the last vestiges of pregnancy.
Much positive feedback via facebook etc ensued.
This morning her most recent photo shows the beginning of the end.
Her neck is getting scrawny and her eyes look hazy.
She is working out at least once a day and is still losing muscle mass.
Really too bad, she had a naturally strong, beautiful body.
Added this to the OP:
I adhere to a simple philosophy, "you got yours and I got mine." Yours may be a diet that abstains from any and all animal products, or just meat, or maybe Cap'n Crunch, who knows. Here's mine. Mine is one where steaks are medium rare, crab legs are fresh and bourbon is Kentucky small batch. I am perfectly healthy and I have the lungs of a racehorse. You got yours and I got mine.
