Every South African ex-pat the world over has a prized stash of borrowers in the freezer, and a bag of biltong in the cupboard. For a day, then it's all gone.
Lowrez - there are quite a few vegans on this board. I do think it helps keep weight down, although it is most certainly easy enough to gain weight if you are not careful. It is not a license to eat without thought. I don't count calories - but growing up a fat kid, and even weighing a 100 pounds more than I do now when I finished medical school, I am constantly careful. With more awareness now, it is easier to eat out and still be vegan - as long as you ask all the questions (e.g.. many "veggie" burger are held together with egg whites).
