to be true, i do call the kiddo a cupcakeatarian because she's vegan except for the odd bit of un vegan junk food (mainly cupcakes at parties), but I was JOKING. so clearly when we saw a "cupcakeatarian" shirt we had to buy it. anyway.

Oh ffs. At least the zombie apocalypse git had thought through the likelihood of a world entirely free of fruit and veg properly...

I don't get this. Your body doesn't "forget" how to digest animal products! Right? You still have the same genes that produce the same enzymes. When I've eaten stuff accidentally containing meat/dairy, I don't even notice. Once i realize what I've eaten I do get grossed out but I'm not physically unwell. Unless your friend is trying to learn how to get over the ick factor, in which case I understand.

My partner's sister and her bf call themselves "aqua-vegans" because they eat fish. It makes me think of Aqua Velva, so I giggle every time they say it.

Most people develop secondary lactose-intolerance when they stop consuming milk; if you don't drink or eat 'enough' of it, the bacteria that feed off the lactose die out, so if you start eating it again, you get sick. I think something similar happens with meat. I know that the few times some animal products have ended up in my food, my stomach was not very happy with me.

One of my friends, who goes by an interesting name (he has an absurdly long name, so it got shortened to four consonants), is a [name]itarian. He eats vegetarian on his own, but if someone's going to throw out anything, he'll eat it.

I get sick if I accidentally ingest dairy at this point (which has happened only once or twice in the last couple of years). I can't imagine how yucky I'd feel if I ate meat!

Wow, good to know! I always thought people were exaggerating when they said they had adverse reactions to meat/dairy (other than lactose intolerance). Now I feel like the unusual one here!

OMG appi, when did you change your avatar? This one is the best yet! It looks as if Livi is constantly shocked about your posts. Especially when they're about her. I love it!!

(For what it's worth, I might have some of the science backwards, but... The general gist of it is right. It might be some weird body thing, not bacteria, and some other things) It really depends on where you are. Lactose intolerance is really rare in Europe, because of some crazy gene mutation that happened ages back, but really common in a lot of Asian countries. Individual mileage may vary, of course, but if you've got some genes, you're probably not going to have a lot of adverse effects.

Yeah, I mean it made sense to me if it was people who had *always* had problems because of their genetics, like lactose intolerance. I guess I was referring more to people who had been omni and didn't have a bad reaction to meat/dairy, switch to veganism, and then mistakenly eat something containing animal products and get sick. Like what was mentioned in a recent Vegansaurus post: http://vegansaurus.com/post/13973188781 (point #2).

But it totally makes sense to me now that intestinal flora might change based on diet and that could give you tummy problems. I don't know why that didn't occur to me before! Like my parents always have stomach problems when they come visit because they don't eat a lot of veggies or fiber so they get major bloating and cramps...I didn't think it could go the other way. It never happened to me either, so I was clueless and skeptical. Epiphany for me, haha!

Sorry to derail the thread!

From now on I'm a Gleegan.

I only eat terrible terrible music.

Wait, is that a real thing? I was trying to troll Glee fans.

Are there other niche fandoms I can abuse? I'm, uh, a Ponygan-- I only eat ponies. I'm a Buffygan! I only eat Joss Whedon! I'm a Pet Shop Boygan-- I only eat the Pet Shop Boys! YUM!

I'm pretty sure Gleegan is something me and roommates used to throw around.

Regarding gluten freegan, I like it. Though I know freegan is a real thing where people only eat food that was free (some dumpster divers are like this), so gluten freegan sounds like someone who only eats free bread to me.
