Re: Seeking advice: WFPB and supplements on a vegan diet

Supplements work to correct deficiencies and it’s better to take a supplement than to keep being deficient in something, thus they are useful in that sense, this is not contentious. I hardly think that the scientific consensus is that supplements otherwise lower mortality rates, judging from the rev...

Re: Seeking advice: WFPB and supplements on a vegan diet

brimstoneSalad thank you again for your answer. On my vitamin D deficiency: I never implied I wouldn’t correct it. As I said originally, I was making sure to get some from sun exposure because I was going through some symptoms that seemed to be exacerbated by taking the two different dosages of D3 ...

Re: Seeking advice: WFPB and supplements on a vegan diet

I don't "just know" anything... I've articulated why I am not comfortable taking supplements. I am no more comfortable eating fish twice a week, otherwise I would have already made that decision, clearly. The status wrt multivitamins is not that they have no negative effects, but rather that their l...

Re: Do you struggle with identity?

I fully agree that veganism should not be viewed as an ideology, and that we should stay away from the illusion of moral perfection, which is certainly *not* to be attached to veganism. However, I think it is necessary to establish certain internal rules for the type of person that you want to be, o...

Do you struggle with identity?

I am curious about people's sense of having a "vegan identity": was it easy for you to make veganism part of your identity, or not? Have you always had a clear sense of who you are, or did veganism tap into a need of defining yourself in a moral way (especially for atheists out there)? I personally ...

Re: Seeking advice: WFPB and supplements on a vegan diet

I would not assume it's not caused by vitamin D deficiency. Wound healing is complicated, and impaired wound healing is a symptom of many deficiencies. Yes, but I haven't been able to find anything about vitamin D deficiency being the 'cause' of cracks at the corner of the mouth. It's normally iron...

Re: Seeking advice: WFPB and supplements on a vegan diet

Thank you for your answer, brimstoneSalad :) if you hear hooves you think horse, not zebra. I see your point. However, the reasons why I was inclined to believe the problem might be with iron rather than vitamin D levels is that I've had things like a cut in the corner of the mouth for entire months...

Seeking advice: WFPB and supplements on a vegan diet

I started trying to follow a fully vegan diet following the advice of Dr. Campbell almost a year ago, that goes more or less like 'if you eat a whole foods, plant-based diet you'll be able to get all the nutrients you need and prosper happily ever after'. A few months down the road, I realised that ...

hello?

Hey there. I am very interested in nutrition and have been some form of a reducitarian for almost two years – one year vegetarian, and mostly vegan for the rest. But I do have some worries and difficulties following a vegan diet that I haven't been able to overcome on my own, so I'd be neat to be ab...
