I don't know a lot about it, but I have a vegan friend who seems very healthy, and he practices mostly what is known as the "ape diet."
He eats a ton of fruits and nuts, of course lots of veggies. I don't think he takes any supplements at all. He's not one of those plastic-package
vegans.. I know a couple of those too and both are kinda chunky. Not meaning to be rude but just trying to show the comparison.
I'm not sure where you're at or the healthcare situation there, but you could always go to a doctor and get tested for any deficiency and for
toxins. If your health issues began when you changed your diet I really think you should make sure you are feeding your body what it needs.
I agree with others that meat is ok if you pay attention to what you eat, and know where it came from. If your issue with meat and dairy is simply a
problem with the industry (which is my issue with those industries) you can look for a local butcher or organic farm that you can buy directly from.
You may be surprised at what's available. It's a little more expensive (unless you make friends =D) but you can taste and feel the difference.
I get all my eggs from a friend, we trade him for home baked bread.. His chickens are free range and roam his garden, they get plenty of grain and
lots of wandering bugs. These eggs are in a completely different league than any egg I've gotten from a supermarket, free range organic included. I
know these chickens are treated well, are very happy (they come to you when you call them), and are as organic as the chemical filled world could
allow. They are only used for meat when they are old and stop producing eggs. This is how it was meant to be!
So if you could find a supply of meat or dairy that was humane and chemical free would you consider eating meat?
