Will raising our child on a vegetarian diet put her at a disadvantage?

My partner has been involved in a somewhat casual debate on Facebook between herself and another friend who is from a scientific background about whether the fact that a carnivorous diet is best for raising a newborn or not. We'd like to gather some scientific evidence to get to the bottom of this the best we can. Can you help? [more inside]

Losing weight as a vegetarian

My girlfriend is a strict vegetarian. She is trying to reverse weight gained steadily over the last few years. I am trying to help her and to be supportive. I believe that to address this ultimately she has to make longterm dietary changes. But as someone who is not a vegetarian, I find it difficult to provide concrete advice on positive changes that she can make to her diet. [more inside]

Transitioning to a Vegan Diet

I recently read Finding Ultra by Rich Roll and was interested in make some changes similar to him in that I would like to go vegetarian or possibly Vegan. I purchased a few books, and was wondering how others have done with transitioning to a vegan diet? I'm hoping that eating more healthy will get me out of this rut that I am in. For those of you have gone vegan, did you learn to cook several meals before you made the change, or did you do something different? [more inside]

Are the ethics of eating meat fundamentally changed by the way it comes to the table?

Querying the hive mind: In your opinion, is it more ethical to eat humanely raised and killed animals? Does the way an animal is treated and killed change the ethical question of whether it's ethical to eat meat in the first place? I'm doing some research on this and wanted some opinions or relevant links that might help. Thanks in advance!

Is it possible to become vegetarian and gain weight at the same time?

I´ve recently discovered that my body "dislikes" red meat, this is, I become heavy and slow when eat this kind of food. Additionally, my doctor suggested that I should eat less meat since my kidneys are not working properly. One of my life goals is to become vegetarian (ovo-lacto kind to start), and I purchased some books on the subject, but none of them explains how to do so without putting your health in risk. Is there a comprehensive and safe guide to start being vegetarian? [more inside]

Help me compromise my ethics!

For nearly a decade now, I've avoided all leather goods for ethical and aesthetic reasons. But I'm at a point where I'm sick of wearing canvas athletic shoes and imitation leather dress shoes (which are often ill fitting and, frankly, silly looking), and am looking to have my guilt assuaged so I can return to wearing leather.

Can ideological differences make or break a relationship?

Increasingly, my fiancee and I have become distant in our ideological views. I realize that this is likely to happen in any relationship as people age but I still feel rather strongly about some of these issues (as she did early on in our relationship) and I don't appreciate the increasing pressure from her and her family to "grow-up". How common is this situation? And, if so, is there any advice you can offer to work through the problems? [more inside]

book about vegetarianism?

What's the best, or top 3-4, books about vegetarianism for a 14-year old girl who has asked for a book about vegetarianism. I guess recipes are not as important as the issues surrounding a decision to go meatless.
