Awesome! I'm so happy to hear it's working for you! I'm taking the plunge myself -- actually dipping into the water one toe at a time. Trying to figure out how to work a vegan diet in with my family's high caloric & protein needs (2 young athelets in the house). It'll work... it'll work...

If you're lucky enough to be able to get milk, eggs from your own animals or a neighbor, or to be close enough to a co-op where you can purchase farm-fresh and grain-fed animal products, then you're better off than most.

Protein, while needed, is overrated. Too much can be almost as bad as too little

Two older sons are nutritionists. Worked out how much protein they and their younger sister need and the all-vegan doesn't make sense for them (although only one of them still lives with me). They tend to lean more towards the Paleo Diet, which I too believe is better for humans. Except that we as a species have managed to pollute just about every waterway and veld on the planet with no sign of stopping soon. Hence my delving into vegan land.

I should add I do avoid animal protein myself, what with Lupus and MM battling for dominion over my body. People really do need to tailor their diets to their own needs.

No, but we got a second opinion after we started treatment
