Hi I'm qway!
I went vegan about 6 years ago, but I encoubtered some obstacles and my dr requested i give it up. Now, I'm back, and looking for help. I will be posting in the health subforum asking for specific help.
I have a new dr, and i see him on saturday, i will be asking for his help keeping me healthy on a plant based diet.
Anyway, im qway, I'm 46, married and have a 16 year old transgendered vegetarian son.
I hope to make some good friends here! Please message me, I'm shy but very friendly!

Hello and welcome!!
It always amazes me, doctors who dis plant based diets. They have little to no nutritional education in medical school. It's something like 3 hours or 3 days, I can't remember which. But if they studied it even for a second in their own, they'd know better (or maybe they just want to keep people coming back).

Wow. I love when I see people who don't give up no matter what other people say. You have my support but I'm no expert on food tho so probably there are people here who know better than me and can answer your specific questions!

Welcome to the forum!

Hello Qway, I hope your new doctor is more vegan friendly than your last one. Doctors don't know a lot about diet, most of them still think meat and dairy are good for you.
