How would you describe your diet (not yet vegetarian, vegetarian, vegan, raw food, etc)?

Strictly vegan. Veggies 40% with a greater emphasis on asian like bitter melon, daikon, and nori, all mostly steamed, but I'm trying to back to stir fry and salads; 30% legumes of all kinds, but mainly kidney/garbanzo served as middle eastern or mexican; 20% fruits, mainly banannas, apples, kiwis with some papaya; 10%, rice or pea protein powders, both work very well for me.

How long have you followed your current diet?

40 years. This is why it's exciting to see such a large group. My mates from the '70s mostly long since gave it up. I believe in this diet and it's potential to be trans-formative.

How long have you lived in the Metro DC area?

All my life except for 5 years in L.A. and 1 year in Vancouver.

Introduction

Hi, had numerous veggie diets, including macro, mucusless, lacto-ovo, and vegan. I was working with a new age rock group in L.A. --we all hit on veganism to "clean up" our bodies, minds and spirits. It helped me survive cancer 8 years ago.
