I've basically been a vegetarian, sometimes pescetarian (which means eating seafood), for about 10 years now. I eat dairy (organic greek yogurt) but not meat. I don't eat meat for various reasons including health, environment, and ethical reasons. But part of me wonders if it influences my bulimia at all since I became a vegetarian around the same time. To clarify, I do not eat meat in BP cycles either, but I do eat cheese. I don't feel I crave meet and never really cared much for it when I did eat it. But is it possible I'm missing a nutrient? I take a multivitamin and B-12 supplement. Every once in a while I may eat some seafood. Part of me wants to go vegan for ethical reasons, but I'm not sure that it is healthy for me. I've tried being vegan before but I didn't think I was doing it correctly and didn't feel great.
Also, I have had ridges, horizontal and vertical, in my nails for the past few years now. My nails split in half too, and I can't help but wonder if it's from missing a nutrient. My doctor said it's probably from stress or washing my hands too much but that doesn't make sense to me.
Anyone have thoughts or experiences with this? I really don't want to eat meat, but just curious if anyone is vegetarian, pescetarian, or vegan and recovered.
