To people who adopt a “vegan diet” to lose weight.

Stop. Right. There.

Not only is it kinda sad that the only reason you want to go veg is selfish, but you are hurting our movement.

Veganism is not a diet. I’m glad you are currently refraining from animal products, of course, we need to prevent as much cruelty as we can, but do not tell people you are a vegan.

Veganism encompasses so much more than what you eat and clearly, if you do not care about any of that, you don’t fit the description.

What you are looking to say is you are on “a whole foods, plant-based diet.”

You’re part of the reason people think our lifestyles are temporary phases.

Do not trivialize our activism with your weight loss tactics. Considering veganism doesn’t always guarantee weight loss, it’s pointless to say anyway.

This has been a PSA from the Vegan Police.
