    Optimal nutrition goes beyond just plants. The more variety in our diet, the better, with certain things cut out like refined sugars.

    There is healthy and there is challenging, vegan diets (done correctly) are the latter.

    vegans are worse than bro science chads, yes a plant based diet for a short while can have health benefits. no, that doesn't mean it is a healthy long-term diet, it's possible but you need to eat large quantities of some very weird foods to get the nutrients you miss out on by avoiding meat and most vegans don't do that. which is why a few years after starting, a lot of them get sick and have to start eating normally again.

    You can be vegan when you are older, but that diet doesn't work for kids. Also they didn't even vaccinate their kid which should be mandatory.

    Not all sugar's are bad. Natural sugar not processed sugar is one of the fastest burning energies and the least of peoples troubles.

    Blood-type diets are far more accurate. Most vegans are dumbass, pretentious a-holes.

    As much as I like to bash vegans and other alternate hippy retards, them being vegans does not explain how the kid was essentially on a breatharian diet.

    Edit: Personally I don't mind a vegetarian diet, I don't need to eat meat all the time, but I think the extremism that is a vegan diet is going too far. Restricting yourself to additives and a very limted range of protein seems to be counterproductive.

    My son is on a vegan diet and has been for the past 4 years.
    People always seem to flip out when you hear a child dying or getting sick because of incompetent parents yet it doesn't really happen all that often.

    Child obesity is much more of an issue and a lot more common yet the noise around it is fairly minimal.

    No, that's called shitty parenting, not so much of a belief system as much as a state of stupidity and ineptitude.

    That's not a vegan diet, it is a raw vegan diet.

    A vegan diet for a child is fine. A raw vegan diet for just about anyone, is awful.

    People being preachy about anything is annoying.

    Yes, animals inadvertently die when clearing land for the growing of crops. However, those same animals die clearing land for livestock pasture and feed crop growth as well. There's a huge difference between:

    X amount of animals inadvertently killed to produce crops

    VS.

    X amount of animals inadvertently killed to produce crops/feed land + near 15 billion livestock animals slaughtered purposely.

    I respect your take on lab grown meat. I hope it happens soon.

    That's not really that hard. Just substitute soy with seitan. I'm not a big fan of seitan mind you, it's heavily processed and the amino acid spectrum is narrow. But if you purely want to hit that 120g cap it works. I'd probably go for a different type of bean but then you're going to struggle staying under 2k. Plus it requires you eating about a kilo of various beans, seeds and nuts a day.

    If you run and strength train doesn't 2k calories land you in a massive calorie deficit? I do a combination of muay thai and bouldering plus I cycle to work. My weight would take a nose dive if I stuck to 2k.

She pointed me at an online article by Chris Kresser, who also used to be vegan and has completely changed how he views food and animal nutrition after studying the facts.

    You can choose not to read it. That's your call. But it counters a number of things you said, and it would be worthwhile reading to understand some of the finer points why veganism isn't as healthy as a standalone.

    Also, that meal plan you posted was just horrible. I know you said it was a quick search to make your point, but it's so horribly nutritionally unbalanced it's not funny.
    So we've gone from an article on couple that fed their newborn a extremely restricted raw vegan diet to an article which suggests that a vegan diet is probably not the best choice for optimal nutrition.

    Nobody here is claiming a vegan diet will grant you optimal nutrition. The SAD won't grant you optimal nutrition either. Neither will drinking alcohol.

    The article you linked doesn't suggest a vegan diet can't be healthy. It suggests that eating animal products gives you more options and that there are less pitfalls. I agree on that, i'm unsure how anyone could think it would be any different. Of course you're going to get better results if you facilitate all the building blocks life has to offer. It also goes over various pitfalls within a vegan diet and also covers ways to counter them.

    If you're following a vegan diet purely for health reasons then after reading this it would make a lot of sense to stop. However many people don't follow a vegan diet purely for health reasons and since you can eat a vegan diet and still be healthy, even if it's not the most optimal diet for nutrition.

    Yeah, when they force cats to be vegan, it really shows their colors.

    Is "just fine" really what you want out of life? I wouldn't take to raising a family with such low standards.

    2 vegans down, plenty more to go

    Another problem with veganism is that each one of their meals seems to be comprised of ingredients produced in every corner of the world. There's zero sustainability in it.

    These parents have been practicing a belief system that was at least, if not more, as harmful as flat earth. Malnutrition was only part of the problem. The child had also never been vaccinated nor registered as being born, or given her any pediatric checkups.

    “According to their ideological belief that the daughter was a citizen of the world, her parents did not even report the birth to any authority, have her checked at a pediatric center, or even weigh or measure her growth. Nor has the girl been vaccinated or examined by a doctor,” a court statement said.
