30 Bananas a Day!

I have found being a vegan come with a lot of challenges, but the one I find most difficult, is the fact that all of my family eats meat, and my oldest brother is really into the whole low carb, high protein diet. It's so hard to talk to him about my diet, just because he thinks he's always right in everything he does. I tried to show him vegan body builders, and everything I know about being vegan. He just doesn't understand that meat is slowly killing him, and it makes me so sad because all I want to do is help him live a happy and long life. The hardest thing is watching my family members die because of what they eat constantly, but I guess that comes with the price of this lifestyle. :/

Hi Rayven! What you wrote is very true!

But no reason to be sad. We all make mistakes and sooner or later we learn from them ...

Keep the carbs coming and "be the change you want to see"

Someone in your family has to be the example and go first.  I know that going vegan (and even 80/10/10 for that matter) was only difficult for me in the beginning because I didn't have any family members or friends that were doing it.  Today the word "Challenge" sounds like a good thing to me more than a bad thing or a burden.   I am happy to be a role model for my family and friends and knowing that I am a role model for them only motivates me to want to do this even more.

my brother and I just got into a huge argument over it. He says vegans are too skinny and they don't get enough protein, which is why I showed him the vegan body building, and he STILL said that they are too small. I know he is completely bullshitting everything he is saying, only because he wants to keep eating meat. its so sad :/ and its really hard.

I know where your coming from. My aunt has high cholesterol and is diabetic. My cousin is heavy set now. My dad is battling extreme fatigue along with weight gain. all my aunt can talk about is steak, pepsi and icecream.. It's so sad! I try to talk to them but they just won't listen
