beforewisdom Posted December 1, 2007 Share Posted December 1, 2007 What do "you all" think of veg*ns who are obviously not fit and who have an unhealthy appearance spouting off about how veg*sm is great for your health as well as weight control? A fact is a fact, no matter who speaks it. However, I have seen people do this and I have seen other people ridicule them behind their back later. I have also heard a few people conclude that the health and weight control argument for veg*sm is bunk because a heavy/way thin/unhealthy looking person spouted off abut the health benefits of veg*sm. A few years ago when I was heavy due to some injuries a coworker who was also a friend put the matter of me giving fitness advice beyond a certain point to me bluntly....in private. It really hurt, but I am glad I was told. A registered dietitian who speaks at Summerfest made a smilar point to a big audience he was talking to. He told the crowd that if you have an obvious weight or health issue you shouldn't go around talking about health and veg*sm as both you and veg*sm will be judged negatively. I'm on a non-veg*n web board where this vegetarian woman is always bragging how she is a health nut being into yoga, massage and have gotten several boyfriends to lose weight by convincing them to go vegetarian. She has posted pictures of herself and she is quite rotund. So what do all of you think about this kind of situation? My personal view is that it is wrong for people to judge people.....and advice this way....but, it seems to be a fact of life. IMHO unless someone is the picture of health they should stick to the other arguments for veg*sm when talking about it. Opinions? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
