Building A Support System

How Do I Become A Vegetarian: Building A Support System One question I get asked quite a bit is “how do I meet other vegetarians?” And it’s a great question.  If you’re doing anything by yourself, you’re less likely to succeed.  But if you’re surrounded by people you can talk to about going veg, you are more likely to do it well and stick with it. So, how do find those people who are doing the veg thing?  Well, it depends where you’re looking, and in what capacity you want to interact.

How do I STAY a vegetarian?

How do I STAY a Vegetarian? I got a question recently that I thought was particularly poignant and relevant to us veg-types.  I’m planning on doing a video response, but wanted to put out a written one as well. Here’s the question.  It’s from Sean here in Austin, Texas. He asks: I wanted some advice about this.  I’ve encountered several “ex-vegetarians,” or people who claim they used to be a vegetarian for several years.  But I wonder what made them choose to stop?  Is it true that most people who decide to go veg ultimately stop, or go back to their original eating habits?  And if they really don’t like it or feel low on energy, then it is intriguing why they would continue for several years before stopping. ...
