That’s my feeling as well. I think that cutting out all meat is a step too far.I just don’t believe that I can get enough nutrition to stay well on a diet of low starch veg/avocados and eggs.
Its a step too far for most people, its only a very small percentage that will even try it.
Belief determines what we will try,though.
I have had my blood panels taken twice a year for the last 3 years of being vegan.
I am missing only vitamin D, since they have already determined my low iron was caused by heavy periods due to endometriosis I got while eating a meat-included diet 🙂
I dont eat dairy OR eggs. Only veggies and fruit, and almost no processed food.
Even my B12 was higher than the average for people who eat meat!

The leading authorities on health and LAWFUL labeling, changing what you will see on food labeling in 2015. They make sure people have to know if there is trans-fat in your foods, and they are the first to report “Freedom of Information Act documents reveal that the U.S. Department of Agriculture warned the egg industry that saying eggs are nutritious or safe may violate rules against false and misleading advertising.”
This video says eggs, for instance, cannot be advertised as healthy in any way shape or form,and is very funny-
Veganism isnt for everybody, but limiting or omitting meat is healthful during times of illness and recovery. Thats all I was implying.
Going vegan for a week wouldn’t worry me if I was allowed to eat rice/tofu/nuts/lentils/sweet potatoes etc it’s the thought of just living on non starchy veg for 7 days that worries me. I want to heal my gut but not at the cost of severe malnutrition. OTOH once I’ve paid my hard earned cash for a diet regime I likely to follow it to the letter. Otherwise if it doesn’t work I will only have myself to blame!
