Blogilates Illegal Actions Against Vegans Well in case you didn't know recently a fitness youtuber blogilates has been getting alot of vegan youtube videos taken down. She has been doing this by filing illegal false copyright claims. Specifically she is targeting those who have made videos criticizing her. I was kind of surprised by this because the last couple of food videos she made were vegan recipes. But it's clear after this that she only made those video to capitalize on the "vegan trend". She only cares about money. I doubt she hates vegans or veganism. But she obviously cares about money more than ethics or animals if she is willing to break the law to try and silence voices within veganism. Her workout videos are crap anyway and her diet advice is terrible. More information in the video if you want to know some details. tinyurl.com/blogilatesveganism Post Date: 05/01/16, Replies: 2
Corporate Youtubers censoring vegans People should be aware that corporations behind some Youtube personalities give them money to push meat, dairy, and eggs and lie and call them healthy. They also are using their corporate hammers to censor and destroy many different vegan Youtubers who dare tell the truth. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-wYcVquRsMU Post Date: 05/01/16, Replies: 4
struggling vegan Hi guys, So the gist of it is i need some support from fellow vegans. I dont know a single other vegan with whom i can talk about the the issues/ recipies and such.I have been mostly vegan for 2 years except i still make some bad choices involving cheese. I really would like to get more involved in activism and stick to a strict vegan diet to get healthy and feel like some support would help me do so. Where do you guys get involved with other vegans at? Post Date: 04/29/16, Replies: 4
Cruelty Free Shampoo/Body Wash After ten yrs of being vegetarian, I've decided to make the change to vegan! Household items & cosmetics being cruel free I don't have an issue with- I'm not picky; the whole switch has actually been easier than I thought it was going to be; especially with little support from my family. Anyway, I have color treated hair, so I do need a color treated shampoo that does not test on animals.. any suggestions? (I'm currently using Garnier Fructis which from my understanding, does test on animals) For body wash, my skin is insanely sensitive so switching body washes has me a bit worried. I'm currently using Vagisil Intimate Body Wash, so do you ladies know of any similar products that are cruel free? Again, like the shampoo I'm pretty sure they test on animals as well. Thanks in advance for the help, it's much appreciated! Tiffany Post Date: 04/29/16, Replies: 3

Am i Doing Something Wrong? Went Vegan 10 days ago and also started working out and running 8 weeks ago; averaging about 9 miles total a week along with some calisthenics and stretching. Only backslid about 5 times by eating 2 eggs, fist full of cheese, but no meats whatsoever. As of today, haven't lost a single pound. Did I perhaps lose 2 lbs but put on 2 lbs of muscle? Still looks like I should have lost 5 lbs at least. Staying with it. Am i doing something wrong?? Post Date: 04/26/16, Replies: 7

Questions from a beginner Hello everyone, I have been on and off paleo for 3 years before I realized I hate meat and it makes me feel awful. I have been 100% vegan for a week now and loving it. I eat 80% fruits, veggies, legumes, grains etc. and 20% fats and snacks type things. I have a few questions that I haven't seen come up much in the blogs and books I have started to read. 1. What percentage of carbs, protein and fat should I be ideally striving for? I have this odd fear that I will overdo the protein and not get enough fats for example and then I will feel crappy and not want to continue. 2. Is there a significant 'detox' period when first starting a vegan lifestyle? Keep in mind I have been paleo so I have been hearing how awful grains are. I have been breaking out quite substantially and getting odd itchy patches all over my body. Paleo would have me believe this is a reaction to gluten or grains in general. Any opinions? 3. And last for now, can anyone recommend some good you tube videos or documentaries that are not OVERLY graphic. I don't think I can handle anymore of watching those poor animals but I am very interested in the 'science' behind being a vegan. Thank you in advance! Post Date: 04/25/16, Replies: 5
IS IT A TROUBLE TO BE A VEGAN? :( Hey it's Carisa, 15 from the uk I feel bad because I always ask my mum if I can be vegan but she says i'm stupid and she needs to buy really expensive stuff to meet my protein needs. That kinda sucks but I keep telling her that I don't need meat and dairy in order to survive and that plant protein is way better for my health.. she thinks cus I'm just a teen I don't know nutritional stuff and cus I'm growing I shud get my protein straight from meat. She nearly always gets mad at me.. I keep telling her I don't want to put animal products in my body.. but I feel troublesome to her because she says I'm being selfish and a guilt tripper and that I need to appreciate my food.. I kind of understand where she's coming from. There's like animal products in nearly everything that's easy to get ur hands on. But how do I get the message across that I really don't like the idea of consuming animal products because they factually may not be beneficial to my health plus it's an innocent cute being I just cannot eat its flesh. Why do people get so angry at me. I don't preach or swear etc I just keep calm and silently cry when I consume the poor animals' stress hormones. Post Date: 04/18/16, Replies: 7

WHEN!? When are one of you vegan pubs gonna get a tv so that us jocks can enjoy a burger, beer, and a sports game of any type. I am so damn desperate for this combo I will watch F***ing Darts for crying out loud. You don't have to keep the Tv on all day! Oilers night!? Please just expand your horizons a bit here people. This whole vegan thing is not taking off and this is just another reason why. I am embarrassed to take my non-vegan friends to your establishments because you are all way too extreme in your approach. Your artzy fartzy atmospheres are boring the hell out of me and turning my friends off from even considering walking and trying your food. Not all artists paint, play music, or write poetry. I take my art to the ice, to the playing field. Jocks can be creative artists too! ugh. Post Date: 04/12/16, Replies: 6

The BEST vegan transition u will ever see My god has anyone else seen Sergi G's 30 day vegan challenge series? Im 35 years old and just binge watched his entire series. I saw one of his videos by coincidence and now HIGHLY recommend this channel to anyone, meat eaters, vegans, those transitioning. His conclusion video is the best you will ever see wrapping up a 30 day vegan challenge. He ended up staying vegan. Hes very charismatic guy from Barcelona and offers some of the highest quality editing and production I have seen (especially in the vegan community). Anyways rather than leaving it to chance I wanted to recommend this channel to everyone. (This guy is blowing up, he posted his first video 3 months ago and already has close to 4,000 subscribers). There are my 2 cents. Happy day to everyone! :) Post Date: 04/08/16, Replies: 1
Are we designed omnivores???? Recently I read about scientific studies claiming that there are many disadvantages of eating animal products.. -that we aren't supposed to drink the milk of another species.. -that we do not have an acidic stomach (though carnivores do) to digest meat.. -that we are very similar to herbivores (we have teeth for grinding, not canine teeth for tearing meat).. -that we have no claws (though carnivores do).. -that meat isn't designed for us which is why we cook it rather than eat it raw.. -that many people are lactose intolerant -that the stress hormones of the animal are passed to us.. Yet somehow despite all of this,for some reason advertisements and nearly all people say that animal products are good for us... are these just false claims that people so passionately put forward for industry or are they scientifically accurate.... Is cow's milk really that good for the bones? Also are plants better to eat than animals because many are given hormones as well to grow at an unnatural rate, according to my mum they're not that healthy or natural... um what to say to that :/ surely not that bad, mum... as the hormones put into animals.

Making the leap My New Year's Resolution was to stop eating beef and pork, however I continued to eat chicken and turkey. I guess I felt like chicken and turkey were not intelligent or less than. I struggled with this resolution. I have not seen any videos of abuse or slaughterhouses and to be honest I don't want to nor do I need to. I've gotten to the point when I look at meat on my plate I think about the cruelty that they faced. Again, I've never seen any videos...I can only imagine. I push my plate away and lose my appetite. I'm making the leap to become a vegetarian! I can no longer eat meat. My question is do I just jump into this, or is this something you do gradually? After making the decision to go vegetarian what's next? I've been reading and found nothing about the actual process for a beginner. I'll take any advice to assist me on this journey.

Vegan - Taking a Break???? Hello all, Something is troubling me. My daughter who is 25 years old, after being vegan for about three years, she decided to eat fish. I found out through her brother. I was very sad, devastated felt angry against her and felt betrayed, as if she had done something against me. I have many times confronted to her how I feel about the suffering of animals in the hands of humans. She has understood my emotions completely, and agreed with me about the consumption of meat and the use of animals. By the time I confronted to her that I had found out, I had become very angry, causing me call her a lot of horrible names. All she told me was that she had it twice to give veganism a break and that it was her life and could do what she wanted. It has been two weeks now and we barely talk, as we were very close. Am I wrong here? How can someone be vegan and eat fish. Fish is an animal and its animal flesh she is eating. I want to hear what others think. Post Date: 03/21/16, Replies: 7
healthy alternatives to cooking oils hi guys, I am a new vegan. I am searching for healthy alternatives to vegetable oil/ cooking oils, that do not compromise the flavor of the food( I am trying to convert my family into vegans too :)) Post Date: 03/20/16, Replies: 2
fake meats...not impressed So I tried a lot of the fake meats to see if they would be good alternatives. So far I have not liked almost all of them. Which probably is good since they appear to be highly processed foods. I think my favorite so far is the Beyond Meat crumbles. But even these tasted a bit strange, but I will experiment with it a bit. However, I've made a lot of great soups with veggies and replaced the milk products with replacements and they have been really good. And smoothies are great now that I got a Vitamix blender. I also prefer almond milk to any other alternative. I guess I will stick to regular foods. Maybe these will work for some people, but so far to me they just taste like inferior food. Anyone have similar experiences on these? Post Date: 03/19/16, Replies: 4
