Low-Carb High-Protein Vegan?

For mental health reasons, it’s been recommended that I eat a low-carb high-protein diet, but of course a lot of the recommended foods are meat, dairy or eggs.

I still have a lot to learn about nutrition, but could anyone who knows more about vegan nutrition help me figure out what this diet would look like? 

I definitely don’t want to go back to eating animal products, but so many of the articles and recommended foods I’m finding are just like “DAIRY!!! :D FISH!!!” and I’m having trouble finding a lot of resources on this for vegans. 

Thanks!

"oh my god stop criticizing young girls who like 50 Shades of Gray or Twilight you can’t tell them what they can and can’t read"

no we can’t but we have to protect young girls from mistaking abusive behavior for genuine affection at all costs

Are you worried about our planet’s future? About our oceans, about pollution, about the ice caps melting, about world hunger, about deforestation?

By making one simple change in your life, you - a single person, can save every day:

1100 gallons of water
45 lbs of grain
30 square feet of forest
20 lbs of CO2

With one simple change you can avoid supporting the leading cause of all the issues named above.

Are you interested?

On an online forum I’m a part of there was a discussion on Meat vs No Meat and I made a fairly lengthy post filled to the teeth with links and information, trying to cover all aspects of veganism. Somewhere in the post I addressed the common idea that some animals are more important/worthy of life than others, and mentioned that all animals are sentient and feel pain. 

Now I log on to see that someone has replied to my post, telling me that my statement is incorrect because sponges don’t have a central nervous system and therefore don’t feel pain.

As true as it may be, and I’m not arguing that, I’m just so annoyed that someone read through my entire post filled with information and backed up by sources, only to tell me that sponges don’t feel pain.

Non-vegans will literally try to find any fault in your argument and will cling to it with their lives if it means they get to ignore all the information, statistics, and documented footage supporting veganism. 


before you send someone an ugly message perhaps exfoliate your skin, set some life goals and contemplate why you’ve reached this point

I know I’ve seen some huge, wonderful masterposts floating around with links and sources on just about every aspect of veganism - could any of you lovely people link some to me? c:

"tea is just leaf water!" "yeah well coffee is just bean water!" wow, it’s. it’s like everything is made of things. this door is just wood rectangle. this poster is just ink paper. this lemonade is just lemon water. wow, it’s like you can combine ingredients to make things that are more enjoyable than the initial parts of the equation. sure is a magical world we live in


"It’s not animal abuse if I’m paying someone else to do it for me!!"

Do nonvegans even have a sense of object permanence 


if "eating animals is violence" then buying clothing from certain brands that have picture of naked girls in order to sell clothing means that you promote and also support rape culture. So I will go on and assume that all vegans fems are 100% vegan other wise they are ignorant, hypocritical ass shits.

I’ve read this ask at least 3 times over and I still have no idea what you’re trying to fucking say.

Eating animals = buying clothes that use naked girls (??) for advertising = rape = vegan feminists are vegan??? 

All I can say is that you certainly tried and at the end of the day that’s what matters the most. 


I know I’m so surprised that I have no vegan friends! Like I think I know 1 other vegan irl, but I was never really close to her. Maybe I’m just hanging out with the wrong friend group to find other vegans :\
