vegans, how do you cope with meat eaters telling you you are unhealthy and they are better than you? I would never tell someone what to or what not to eat and I am never the one to bring it up in conversation. I know what is healthiest for my body, other animals and the planet and have actually been told by a doctor I am the healthiest I have been in a long time. I just don't know how to respond when they keep attacking me for it!

      agreed with milkjoey—they’re likely not professionals! but in the rare instance they may be (tho i can’t imagine a qualified nutrition or dietetics professional offering such blatantly rude and unfounded advice, especially unprovoked) or just to have another argument in your arsenal… it’s literally none of their business what you eat. this may lead to defensive “im just worried about your health” non-apology handwringing. but like. my scripted response for that has always been smth along the lines of “okay, well, don’t,” bc again… it’s so completely none of their business!

      they're immature. they're not dietitians or specialized in nutrition in any way. different diets work for different people and i'm glad being vegan worked for you! me personally, i'm not vegan, but i know that there are people who don't feel well after eating meat. i would say to tell them they aren't specialized in nutrition and you feel good. that's all that matters. it's Your food, You enjoy it how you want
