    Best answer: Either your mother is ignorant of the facts, or she is trying to manipulate you. Or both.

    Whether or not you eat meat will NOT affect your height. If you were deprived necessary nutrition all throughout your childhood, it could certainly affect your growth. But, by age 16, you have likely reached your full height. Most girls stop growing at around age 15. Statistically -- meaning if you are like most girls -- you will NOT grow any taller, no matter what you do.

    As long as you are receiving adequate calories and nutrition, NOBODY has the right to tell you what -- or how much -- to eat. If you (or your mother) are really worried, ask your mother to make you an appointment with your doctor, who will run blood lab work to make sure you are healthy, and with a registered dietitian, who will help you structure a nutritionally-sound vegan/vegetarian diet.

  • Please give me reasons I shouldn’t be vegan!?

    I’m trying to quit being vegan because I really want to but I feel like I’ve put a mental block on myself and I need people to bring me back to my senses

  • My husband added honey to my tea - I’m on the vegan diet...Why do I feel betrayed?

    Best answer: Honey is the easiest one for people to forget.
    It could have been disrespect, but honestly, what is gained by letting that bother you?
    Keep doing what you are doing and let that speak for its own merit. If you believe in what you are doing, that is more important than what he thinks.

  • How did you quit being vegan?

    I’ve been vegan for about 2 years and have hated it this past year. I’ve decided I don’t want to be vegan but the thought of eating dairy or anything non-vegan scares me.

    I’ve been vegan for 2 years and have recently decided I should go back to vegetarian. Although I am unable to eat diary or eggs because of some mental block. I’ve become morally ok with the idea of eating ethically raised diary and eggs but the idea of eating them makes me want to throw up although I want to eat them. I’m not quite sure how to explain this and I just want to know who I’m supposed to go to. Like should I got to a doctor, a nutritionist, a therapist..etc?

    alriGht so uh storytime. im very much a vegetarian and my parents dislike it a lOt. I have a lot of health problems including dizziness, fatigue, diarrhea, im literally a ghost, and I bruise badly rly easily. ive been vegetarian/vegan for over a year (I was vegan starting last August but switched over to vegetarian in December) nd my parents started being disapproving when I asked for iron supplements. my parents don't take me for checkups or bloodwork when I ask because im "doing this to yourself" because being vegetarian is "making you like this". i told my stepmom my reasoning as to why im vegetarian and how i feel nd she told me that when i go to the hospital ill learn my lesson. it wasn't as in like "oh im worried" its like "ill laugh in your face cuz i told you so". maybe im just being a dumbass child but A) it would cost less for me to go to the hospital for a simple checkup or maybe some iron supplements then me being in the hospital nd being in a serious risk and B) is it normal for parents to like casually want their children to be in the hospital for a lesson? i won't give up vegetarianism but if anyone has any suggestions as to what i should do to get through to them that would be greatly appreciated:)

  • I wanna be vegan but why do I have to throw out my already bought meat?

    Best answer: I m a vegan. and your friends are wrong. You don t have to throw away any food, or clothes, or cosmetics, or toiletries, or household cleaners, or shoes, etc. You can just use them up and replace them with vegan things later. In the meantime, you are a wannabe vegan or what we call a transitioning vegan. No... show more

    In the meantime, you are a wannabe vegan or what we call a transitioning vegan. No one can become vegan overnight - and most people are not completely vegan. According to me; if you want to be a vegan you are a vegan.

    So don t throw anything away. Just finish it. or you can save it for later if you change your mind.

    Good luck.

  • How do food companies usually respond when people find questionable things in their meals?

    I ordered a vegan burrito from a popular food chain (only chose 4 simple fillings) and when I was halfway through, I bit into something that I knew instantaneously wasn't from a plant.

    I ordered a vegan burrito from a popular food chain (only chose 4 simple fillings) and when I was halfway through, I bit into something that I knew instantaneously wasn't from a plant. I spit it out and it looked like a mouse tail (literally!). I even asked my family members to look at it and none of them could work out what it was, but when my aunty cut it into a few pieces, it was dark in the centre as if there was blood in it. I was so put off, I couldn't eat the burritos. There were even parts on it that looked like fatty deposits, but it didn't resemble any 'regular' meats that are sold in these restaurants. I'm sure it was in the refried beans since it wasn't super tough to bite through. I'm going to contact the company in the morning and ask for an explanation...
