Pretty much every winter coat I've bought has been filled with down feathers. Now that I am vegan, I can't feel right about this anymore. Can anyone recommend a place to get a nice warm jacket that…Continue

I have always been an animal lover. I remember being the kid who would freak out on other kids for stepping on bugs for fun. But like so many other animal lovers, I just thoughtlessly ate meat and dairy most of my life. I did try to be a vegetarian once as a young child (like 8), but my mother put a stop to that pretty quick. After that I just went back to eating animal products and ignoring reality. Eventually I reached a point where I started feeling guilty about it again. But I tried best to push those thoughts into the back of my head. My reasoning as that I couldn't afford to be vegan, and I would miss out on nutrients (even though I ate shit food anyway). These last few months though, I haven't been able to ignore my guilt any longer. I started having nightmares about slaughter houses. I stopped eating meat, and it was pretty easy to be honest. Shortly after that, I cut out dairy and eggs too. I admit, the dairy is going to be a much more difficult thing for me to give up forever. Even though I ate meat, I wasn't much of a "meat lover". But I am a cheese lover for sure, although I realize how disgusting it is now, and that seems to turn of my cravings pretty quick. I think this diet or lifestyle, is honestly something I could stick with. I love carb rich foods & now see how much you can do with vegan foods, and hardly miss meat at all. I'm glad to say I managed to make it through thanksgiving without caving, and even made a vegan gravy that my dad loved (he is not vegan). Really enjoying this so far. Already feeling so much better consciously, knowing that no animals had to suffer to make the food I am enjoying. And starting to notice some physical benefits too, such as my throat clearing up since I cut out the dairy. Looking forward to more!

To get started. Be sure to note food, calorie, water, sleep recommendations and log (can use www.cronometer.com or similar) your food/drink intake, at least for the first few months to get used to what you need to eat to stay on target calorie wise as well as macronutrient (carbs:fat:protein) wise. Even if someone is a long time, established, raw vegan, it is possible to discover some things using "hard-data"; spot trends, be able to make good adjustments, that might not be possible otherwise.
