Are vegans all weak and sickly? Like this guy …
What’s up the the “weak and sickly vegan” stereotype?
Is veganism only suitable for certain types of people? Are some people doing it wrong? Or is the whole stereotype meat-industry propaganda?
As I continue down this path I’m beginning to suspect (this is only a hypothesis) that the people having a hard time on a vegan diet fall into these categories:
- too much fat
- not enough sleep
- not enough exercise
- eating vegan junk food
- not enough food
- taking too many faddish supplements
I have no real statistical data to back that up, but someone like Dr. Graham just might …
Here’s what happened on Day 20:
Cleansing juice of beets (1.5 pounds), apples (2 pounds), lemon (1 whole)
Mangos (3 lbs cut)
Vegan Pho (cooked, but low fat)
80/10/10 Raw Vegan (modified slightly to include an occasional McDougall-style cooked meal)
Getting enough sleep is a recurring problem for me … but I feel much better today having had a decent sleep last night.
