Questionnaire

Why did you decide to become vegan or vegetarian?

Eating animals is unnecessary, probably unhealthy, and animal agriculture is incredibly cruel

What’s your favourite meat/dairy replacement?

Seitan for meat, Cashew cheese

How do you make sure you get enough nutrition?

Eat a variety of foods

Did you go cold turkey with eliminating meat/meat products or did you change your diet slowly?

Right away

When you fell off the wagon and ate some meat products/meat, what did you do?

Have never "fallen off the wagon" as far as meat goes. I've tasted meat by accident - and in a restaurant sent the dishes back. I've chosen to ignore trace ingredients on occasion.

Should children be vegan or vegetarian from birth?

Their parents should decide

Did you lose weight becoming vegan/vegetarian?

Nope

Why did you decide to become vegan or vegetarian?
I discovered that higher animals are very similar to myself. Therefore, killing such a creature felt incredibly wrong. Also, meat and other animal products are unnecessary in this day and age.

What’s your favourite meat/dairy replacement?
Maybe Oatly, which is a Swedish oat milk. Tofu is also an incredible innovation. Beans ad lentils are great, too. Seitan can be OK, but I don't like fake meat to be too realistic.

How do you make sure you get enough nutrition?
I've spent a lot of time and effort reading up on the subject, and I try to keep up to date with new developments.

Did you go cold turkey with eliminating meat/meat products or did you change your diet slowly?
I changed from an omnivorous diet to a vegetarian diet over a period of about 6 months.

When you fell off the wagon and ate some meat products/meat, what did you do?
I got right back on the hobby horse.

Should children be vegan or vegetarian from birth?
Yes.

Did you lose weight becoming vegan/vegetarian?
No, or at least not in the longer term.
