Most of us have been on a diet of some kind at some point in our lives, for me it was the Atkins Low Carb diet. I could lose weight at will just by not eating certain things. But at some trigger point like stress all bets were off and I gained even more back. The Vegan diet is more than just about losing weight. Now, when you feel good about the weight coming off you also get a bonus feel good because of what you are doing for the planet and the animals.

A vegan too Far
From the Idiots Covered in Fake Blood Department A vegan who practices extreme veganism, a plant-based freak of nature, one, who in our book, goes too far even by liberal standards, using aggressive tactics, ones that are pushy, obnoxious and intimidating in an outrageous attempt to gain attention, and in so doing, persuade the meatheads … Continue reading A vegan too Far
