I trust only science. A lot of people don't believe in God so what do you tell them? And since your user name is VeganJesus, you should know that Jesus ate fish. He didn't have a problem with it.

Seriously, embrace the pleasures of eating meat. Try it and you will like it. What are you afraid of?

@jt07, you're like a cat playing with a mouse. Kill it already. ;) 

@VeganJesus, you are making veg/ans sound idiotic, which blows for the rest of us who are veg/an and chill. I've literally been vegetarian since I was in my mother's womb (that's a whole 28 years, buddy) and spent about five years as a strict vegan. These diets have in no way affected my mental health. 

As @Gearhead said more delicately than I will, screw off with your preaching. We like science (and the world) here. Also, facts. And as you mentioned, truth. 

AIN'T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR YOUR SHIT. 

P.S. It's spelled s-h-o-u-l-d. Please keep that in mind when telling people what they should do. 

P.P.S. Moderators' and admins' words are final. Gear already told your ass once. So seriously, really, for serious, stop preaching.

He's a corpse like u. I'm beyond all u jerks. Yr weak ass science and world bs ain't got nuthn on me. Fuk spelling also, shows how brainwashed u r by the system like a slave. I've been mostly vegan 10yrs 4 the animals and its healthier in every way, so yr probly jus cursed to b godless and lost.

And I don't giv a fuq bout any of u evil h8rs, this site is full of shiz and I'm like the only 1 alive h e r e . also u don't kno the truth, or god, or real life. U kno curse, meds, bs world, and death.

I got the truth, thanks Jesus!

PS. And my life isn't this shitty site, mental illness, or the world. I get to move on past this evil place to experience mor as the beautiful soul I wuz created to b and am growing towards every day

 Peaceful animals shudn't b murdered.

So  are you saying here that it's okay to kill carnivorous animals, but we shouldn't kill herbivores?

What about omnivores (animals that eat  both meat and vegetables)?....What should we do about them?

Please clarify what you mean by the above statement.....I'm very curious to know.

I'm working towards a vegan lifestyle, in part for ethical reasons but even more so to see if it'll help with my mental health. So far it's forcing me to think way more about my food choices, which is a good thing. No more mindless snacking.

Any vegans or vegetarians around? Do you feel your eating lifestyles affect your mental health, positively or negatively?

hey there,

i was a vegetarian for over a decade and have tried vegan diets and raw food diets, among other things. personally, none had an impact on my symptoms, though some made me healthier and feel a greater sense of well being, and some actually made me markedly unhealthier...none stopped the voices or intrusive thoughts or social-communication issues, unfortunately.

be careful with supplements. that's my other bit of advice. some of them don't mix well with meds and others don't mix well with certain symptoms.

best of luck with it,

melli xx

I've been vegan for 26 years and had bad depression prior to then when I was eating an omnivore diet. Depression can make me despise myself, but it would be magnified by a million if I used animals. I couldn't live with myself for supporting animal suffering. I'm not proud of many things in my life, but I do take pride in being vegan. If that wasn't in my life anymore I'd struggle with self esteem on a massive scale.

I know this is an old post...

I'm vegan and have been since 2011, before that I was lactovegetarian but lactose intolerant so rarely ate dairy, and before that omni. I found that once I went vegan I stopped getting sick so often and generally had more energy and felt better. It didn't have any negative impacts on my mental health. I've had more time functioning medication free since going vegan than I did before, but I still take medication when I need it. My improvement could be due to any number of things (better counselling, improved coping techniques, moved interstate, etc) so I'm not going to attribute that to my diet. I think the difference for a lot of people is they jump into it without doing proper research of what a healthy balanced vegan diet looks like. Blood tests a few times a year will help you recognise if your diet is deficient. I was lucky enough to be living with a veg friendly dietician when I moved towards vegetarianism and veganism so I didn't have any problems with that and have been able to maintain my health easily since then.

i just wanted to toss in a mental health-related reason i like being mostly veggie when cooking for myself. i have hang-ups about not cleaning things well enough when i cook with meat, and have spiralling thoughts about the bacteria i missed living there and growing and me getting sick (or making someone else sick, somehow). i don't encounter these issues when i don't cook with raw meat, so i usually don't bother.

i can't be too strict about it or anxiety/perfectionism will kick in. so when i'm cooking for myself, i stay on the vegetarian side of things, and when others are cooking, i'll eat meat.

? There is a link between diet + depression, for sure. I'm a living example, and here's an article that backs it up:
https://www.health.harvard.edu/blog/diet-and-depression-2018022213309

"“A dietary pattern characterized by a high intake of fruit, vegetables, whole grain, fish, olive oil, low-fat dairy and antioxidants and low intakes of animal foods was apparently associated with a decreased risk of depression. A dietary pattern characterized by a high consumption of red and/or processed meat, refined grains, sweets, high-fat dairy products, butter, potatoes and high-fat gravy, and low intakes of fruits and vegetables is associated with an increased risk of depression.”"

I'm obese, and doing Bright Line Eating - https://brightlineeating.com/ where there is a massive emphasis on eating a large amount of vegetables every day, zero flour, zero sugar. In terms of mood, those 3 things do definitely make a difference to me - I was binging on ramen to deal with my suicidality, and whilst those noodles worked a treat on emergency mood stabilisation, long term, it's how I gained around 20 kilos.

If you're after a healthy plant based diet, and not sure where to start (and don't have weight issues like I do) - forks over knives might be helpful to you:

hope that helps.

I volunteered at a wildlife rehabilitation center and developed a great deal of empathy with creatures...lead me to be a vegetarian for about 8 years...I eat meat now, but get conflicted at times.  Had to stop volunteering because I got too emotionally involved with the animals and there were too many heartbreaking situations to deal with...and I really grew to despise humans.  Anytime I mentioned that I worked with wildlife someone always had to tell me some (what I considered) horror story of how an animal was treated...learned to just keep my mouth shut.

Good on you for your volunteering. It is that conflict that you describe which would destroy my ability to function. I couldn't cope with the guilt and not being the authentic me. Eating vegan has helped me enormously in that regard.
