    Hi,
    I was just reading this and was wondering how many people on TSR would do the same thing.

    I don't have the willpower to go completely vegan but I guess if I were up to it, I'd cut down on my meat intake for a month.

    I initially did the “vegan for a month” thing, it’s been a four year long month and counting! As the article says, the first month (few months really) is reading labels, trying disgusting meat alternatives, really putting in the ground work to understand the new diet. Some people do it and just eat veg or salads and feel terrible, because you need to eat more than just lettuce. I got a nutrition poster that described what nutrients I could get from what plant based foods, and how much I needed, which helped me understand what I needed to eat.

    I have a huge amount of respect for meat eaters that give it a go and see things from the vegan perspective, even if they decide it’s not for them. Best way to do it is to have a vegan friend who knows all the junk food and which gross alternatives to avoid.

    For a month, sure. But I wouldn't enjoy it.

    I was vegetarian for 2 years in my teens and attempted to go vegan but I missed dairy.
