NO: The best vegan protein sources are nuts, seeds, beans & quinoa. It is very difficult to get all the protein you need solely from fruits & vegetables. But the clincher is essential fatty acids- i don't think there are any significant sources of omega 3 fats in fruits & veggies.If you aspire to a paleo diet it is not necessary to have beans or grains but you need nuts & seeds (hemp seeds esp. Good). ...Read more
Hard to digest: Many people advocate eating "raw foods" as they believe it has more enzymes & nutrients, but some foods are difficult to digest when raw and wheat is one of them.

Make sure to take b12. See my comment for links to some articles on this subject:. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Diet's not the key: I hope that you will manage your cholesterol and any other coronary risk factors appropriately. Vegans have the moral high ground, but all the really big good studies I've seen have shown no impact of vegetarianism / veganism on any health or longevity parameter when we control for other lifestyle factors. I'm sorry you were deceived. Eat to please yourself and stay physically fit. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What's so bad about potato chips? Is it okay if I eat them as a part of a balanced healthy vegan diet?
I know ....: How can something that tastes so good be so bad for you! The two big problems are fat and salt! There are 150 calories in a single serving bag of potato chips, & nearly 100 of them (2/3!) are fat. The fat in them can contribute to common problems of oily skin & acne such as you report. But I don't believe in a total ban of anything that you really enjoy: eat a single serving bag 1-2 times/week:) ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
