anything gelatinous in texture i cannot hold in my mouth, it grosses me out so much. i would always find pieces of meat would have jiggly fat, skin etc and it's just vile to me. the only meat i could eat was processed because there's no 'risk' of anything jiggly in texture. so i cut out meat all together.
the fact veggie substitutes of processed meats like chicken nuggets etc taste really similar made it so easy for me if i'm ever craving that taste.

Nope, not vegan for strange reasons. #1 for the animals, #2 for the environment, #3 for my health which are the normal reasons I think.
I hated eating meat as a kid, but did whatever my family was doing. Went pescatarian 7 and a half years ago, went vegetarian 7 years ago, slowly cut down on dairy and eggs, went full vegan 3 years ago.
I'm a big supporter in everyone reducing meat and animal products in their diet, but I kind of hate that there's an ongoing trend in people with ED pretending or becoming vegan just to explain why they won't take food offerings and don't eat much. This perpetuates the idea that vegans are emaciated, malnourished, sick, or can't eat enough protein.
You can be fat and vegan, healthy and vegan, or underweight and vegan. This turned into a rant lmao

For me it's because it was a logical conclusion. My diet is pretty limited as it is because of being gluten and lactose free. My ex is vegan so when I was with him I learnt to use meat supplement products and just kind of stuck with it for the most part, still ate lactose free dairy products though. So eliminating milk and dairy altogether just seemed like the next step because why not.
I don't mean to seem like I don't care about the moral aspect, it's something I've long debated on with my folks. I guess it just seemed so difficult before, somehow - now that I've realised just how big of a variety of meat free products there is, it was an easy decision all around.

When I first started, it was also a personal challenge to see if I can do it. A few months in, I actually became happy....
but looking back, I never liked and was grossed out by eggs & milk. I never liked fish, except clam chowder. I never liked hamburgers. I got migraines from eating hot dogs, even if they were kosher. I never really liked the taste of meat unless it was burnt. Also I would go into a food coma if I had steak. My Dr told me when I was 16 that I was lactose intolerant, therefore after I went vegan my digestive system got better and my skin cleared up!
Also, I love animals. I’m a sensitive person. I love animals too much.
10 years later, it is a normal way of living! And I don’t really see myself living any other way.

I've been vegetarian since I was a kid, but I've become allergic to dairy, and am now reacting to egg as well, so I'll probably end up accidentally vegan

So I was unintentionally eating a vegetarian diet until I actively became one. And switching to veganism was easy.

I started being vegetarian for only one month to like...prove to myself that I could I guess? And it just stuck for 4 years because I didn't like the idea of necessitating an animal's death for food that I don't need to survive.
Why do me have sad in it?

I'm vegan because, why hurt someone when you don't need to.
Animals are here with us, not for us.
I only need to hurt myself when eating.

I'm vegan for health and also environmental reasons.
I guess my strange thing is that I really don't care about the animals feeling pain - my issue with them being killed and farmed is water/land usage and co2 levels.

I hadn’t eaten red meat of my own accord in around 3 years (couldn’t stand the fatty parts, eventually the smell of it made physically ill), my family had just gotten 5 chickens, my dad wouldn’t stop listening to the Joe Rogan podcast and was way too enthusiastic about killing and eating things. I was horrified, but then realized that I was a massive hypocrite for getting upset when I had just been eating meat that someone else killed all my life. I’ve been vegetarian for almost a year and a half now purely because I don’t want to be a hypocrite.
