im conflicted. i like anything positive written about veganism but this article really seems to me like "VEGANISM IS THE MAGICALLY CURE ALL FOR WHAT AILS YA! IBS? EAT VEGAN AND BE CURED! ACNE? SAY GOODBYE TO THOSE ZITS!"

Pizza faced insomniac over here! That's slightly an exaggeration, but my acne is still well and kickin' after 4 years of veganism, and my sleep habits aren't great. I take long daytime naps and then stay up too late. I wish this article were true, because that would be awesome. But it hasn't been my experience.

My first few years of veganism I had the magic super health powers, but then a bunch of crepe unrelated to my diet happened and negated basically all of that :P

I basically became a Barbie doll, but then my butt started to sag.

Well, I had problems with chronic insomnia and adult acne before going vegan and I still do now, so I guess I didn't get hit hard enough with the magic carrot stick. I do have the vegan superpower of pooping like a champ after eating three meals in a row with beans in them though!

My skin cleared up noticeably in the short term when I went vegan. I really wanted to believe that cutting out dairy was the cure for my adult acne. But after maybe two months it was back to normal. I am 43 frickin' years old and I still break out semi-regularly. It's not awful but I thought I'd have at least aged out of it by now if not vegan'd out of it!

My insomnia got worse, but I'm pretty sure that can be attributed to grad school.

Hummus, the veganest of foods, triggers my IBS, so...

Oddly, I haven't gotten a single cold since going vegan, but it's only been about two-ish years, so that could well be a coincidence. I lost a bit of weight at first, just because I was trying to figure out what I could eat, and thus ate less. Once I got into the routine (and discovered that LU Robuste cookies were vegan), I actually ended up putting on weight and I think I'm now the heaviest I've ever been. I still get PMS pimples like clockwork. And my kidneys are forked, vegan or not.

Me too! Nothing changed health-wise, nothing was magically fixed but there was nothing really wrong to begin with that needed fixin'.

^Actually, I forgot that this isn't entirely true. My cholesterol levels plummeted--but that wasn't a problem before, just that they went even lower after a while of veganness.

Me too, I had low cholesterol prior but it went even lower and then I began with Eat to Live which is no added salt but no added salt for someone with low blood pressure is not a good idea. I've always had multiple colds and what not. I had cleaned up my diet prior to being vegan so some issues happened prior like stomach issues went away.

My first year or so of being vegan, all of my [minor] health issues cleared up, and I felt and looked FANTASTIC. These days, 5 years on, I'm eating healthier than ever, and I feel and look probably worse than I did pre-veganism. Ha! It's a shame when people sell veganism as purely a "OMG IT'LL TOTALLY VINDICATE YOUR VANITY" or something
