Posted by kindlizard at 04/15/10 12:19:21I don't think it is a matter of gaining weight as much as its balancing out. I know folks who have lost weight after leaving a meat-based diet. And others I know have gained weight who were likely malnourished from eating meat. If you give more focus to your diet, as one inevitably does in sifting through ingredients, you are less likely to eat fattening additives and useless fillers, not to mention the dairy and eggs that vegans avoid.
I would not be your choice of interviews since I was among those who gained weight.
