An even better option is to get with your physician and examine your diet and exercise habits -- fitness activities make friends for you & lifestyle change keeps you lean long-term. ...Read more

I'm on a mainly vegan high carb low fat diet and heard it is unhealthy. i feel better&i'm trying to gain weight/muscle. should i continue this diet?

Yes, as long as...: Vegan diets when done properly are very healthy. High carb diets can lead to weight gain but that is what you are aiming for. Not all carbs are created equal.
