Why do some vegans fail?


Recently I read a response from a woman that read, “I used to be a vegan, but felt anemic, so I went back to eating meat. I have been looking into the Paleo diet and feel my body does better when I’m eating meat.”


Making Excuses

Have you heard this before? I used to think that these vegans or vegetarians must have been on a terrible processed vegan diet with not enough plant-strong sources and variety until I heard this talk by Dr. Klapper. Have a look! It is 18 minutes long, but so worth it:


What are your thoughts on this issue? Do you think that vegans fail because they have a poor diet or do you think they’re addicted like he suggests? It’s a compelling speech for sure because I have heard this type of defeated statement more than once.

  1. Very interesting! Thanks for sharing this.
    Actually I think his argument quite convincing.
    But I also know that for me a vegan diet only works when I include about a half cup of beans daily.
    I could never thrive on a raw diet. Or on something like I read some of these failed vegans ate.
    So I think there is truth in both arguments.
    ‘We are not what we eat. We are what we absorb! That to me is the main message of his talk. How true!
