I'm vegetarian, but I don't think I'll ever be able to make the jump to veganism.

Double ditto!

My family has a genetic quirk where we don't produce enough cholesterol naturally. My dad is the healthiest, and he eats the largest amount of cholesterol (his doctor commented on his absolutely perfect heart, asking if he was a raw food vegan or something. Dad listed his primary foods: red meat, potatoes, pork, rye bread, sauerkraut, pasta, and salads with blue cheese dressing). Just to stay healthy, we need to supplement. I'm also estrogen-sensitive, so I don't eat soy.

I tried giving up meat for Lent once, still noshing on eggs, cheese, and high protein nuts, and it didn't matter. My hair started falling out in clumps and my doctor ordered me back on my high meat diet. That, and the side effects of very low cholesterol are awful: chronic fatigue, strokes, heart failure, depression, anxiety, and suicidal urges. My grandfather's death was probably caused by dangerously low cholesterol (heart failure, not suicide).

So... while this condition is somewhat rare, being a vegan or vegetarian is definitely not healthy for everyone. It comes down to knowing your individual body and it's quirks - there is no one diet that is perfectly healthy for everyone alive.

I could see being a loose vegetarian but vegan is too far for me.

Interesting point on how cholesterol is necessary for health. I tend to believe that the high rate of mental illness in this country is directly related to the low-fat, low-cholesterol diets people are consuming on the belief that it's better for their health. It's entirely possible to be overweight (which most americans are) from a high sugar, refined-carb diet and yet be deficient in dietary cholesterol.

I wouldn't go vegan or vegetarian, but I do see how it it is better for some people. I've got such a high metabolism as is that I don't have to worry about excess weight. Working out helps along with the intake that I have.

No I just can't deal with the lack of protein and calcium, kind of a personal health thing for me.
