I'm a fairly skinny guy, but I've been gaining weight within the last year or so, and while most people can't see the extra weight if I wear a loose enough shirt, it still bugs me and I feel like crap. My family has a lot of vegans, and my mom has been trying to convert me for a while, even despite my constant refusals. However, I've been thinking of trying it out for a month or so, just to see if my weight problem goes away, as well as just feeling healthy in general, considering I eat more than my fair share of fast food. I know many of the conservatives on here will probably grill me for even considering something liberal and hippie-ish like being a vegan, but it's a radical plan that might help me out in the long run if I stick to it. Cutting out all meat and dairy for a month can't be too bad. Do you think it's a good idea?
