What are your thoughts on a vegan lifestyle? Do you support it or think it is overrated?

Answer examples and advice for how to answer this interview question for a Fitness Instructor interview

How to Answer

Know your audience. If you are interviewing to work for a company that encourages a plant based diet and steers clear of the meat and dairy industry, you might want to learn a thing or two about their values. Depending on which direction you sway, you can answer fairly and diplomatically along these lines:

"The vegan lifestyle is great for some individuals. I have had clients achieve excellent results by cutting out meat and dairy. I also know that for those who tend towards anemia may need to get their protein from other sources like eggs or cheese. I don't think being vegan is overrated, but I do think it's important to consider someone's health history before recommending any restrictive diet."

What are your thoughts on a vegan lifestyle? Do you support it or think it is overrated?
1.
Potentially dangerous unless done meticulously.
2.
I dont follow a vegan diet myself. I do believe not the protein in meat is important and is needed for a healthy lifestyle.
3.
No ... Because we need more protien for our body.
4.
I think a vegan lifestyle is not a good idea unless you are against slaughter of animals. Back in the past it used to be for that reason nowadays people start being a vegan to be leaner but in my opinion I think there are healthier ways of being lean I think a small amount of dairy should be taken into the diet but not in high proportion because majority of people nowadays are lactose intolerant.
5.
I think each person has their own beliefs which should be accepted whatever they are. I personally think it is slightly overrated and like to get proteins and nutrients from natural sources.
6.
I do support it but not for every one.
7.
I do not agree with this kind of lifestyle.
8.
Again each to their own if people feel comfortable and are happy to live this way then yes I promote it.
9.
Overrated. Very expensive and actually quite unhealthy.
10.
I feel that people should do what works for them. Personally I believe in balance in everything but if people have allergies or strong animal welfare beliefs that is all right with me.
11.
I think I would support it.
12.
Being a vegetarian is really a choice, I respect them as well as I respect the non vegan people, we all have this one goal, to became healthy so what ever their choice is, I respect that.
13.
I think that if you ensure that you are still getting the right nutrients for your body then this is fine.
14.
I would have no problem with someone choosing that because it has been proven to work but I enjoy all kinds of meat so it is not for me.
15.
I think everyone has to the right to their own opinion, it would not bother me if can client was vegan. I would be very understanding.
16.
Its not about being a vegan or non-vegan, its about all your nutrition, if you get all the nutrients from vegan lifestyle. Its good, if not change your lifestyle.
17.
Everyone has their own views and I appreciate them all.
18.
I dont do it personally because I love my meat but I do think it is a good way to lose weight.
19.
I feel that Vegans are not getting the adequate nutrients within their diet.
20.
Both overrated and underrated. It shows good evidence of reversing defects like heart disease. I don't think it get ridiculed by not vegans a not excessively.
21.
Hmm I have no idea about.
22.
I am not into it. But I have no problem with other people following the diet, as long as they are making sure they are getting the correct amount of nutrients into their bodies.
23.
Each to their own. I personally like to eat meat and feel it is a great source of protein plus the body needs certain things from meat that we cannot get from plants alone.
24.
No everyone aloud to live there life as whatever they like.
25.
Its definitly a healthy way of living.
26.
I believe a vegan lifestyle is ok if the person does it for ethical reasons. From a health standpoint I see no advantage. Meat contains protein and Essential amino acids not as available in plants.
27.
I am vegan and I support vegan lifestyle.
28.
Yes its actually good.. It depends on the client.
29.
I wouldn't go to say that it is overrated, But I believe that choice of diet is hard to maintain if you are actually trying to get all the vitamins and proteins from meat.
30.
I dont believe in vegan lifestyle. Its overrated.
31.
Lots of people are vegan. Every body have own choice. But im non vegetarian. But boht are good.
32.
If thats what people want their lifestyle to be then thats their choice, but I dont thinks either underrated or over rated.
33.
I don't think it's over rated because everyone has their own views on things. I do believe we need a varied diet, and I find it hard to see how someone is not lacking in important nutrients through diets and different lifestyles. But if I was vegan, or lead a different type of lifestyle, I'm sure I'd be well educated in what alternatives there are to eat.
34.
I would support the client with his or her dissuasion and support them with an exercises which accommodate to their own needs.
35.
I believe that it is a personally choice for the person and I believe it is perfectly fine as long as the client is getting there complete nutritional needs.
36.
I do not have any negative thoughts or feels of the vegan diet I believe that is a personal choice as long as you are receiving adequate nutrition.
37.
I think that it is overrated.
38.
It maybe overrated but I feel that if they don't want to eat certain things they shouldn't be pressured into eating that.
39.
I do approve the vegan lifestyle, from past experience it did make me feel better about myself. Personally I feel its something anyone can try and if they don't enjoy it then perhaps it isn't the best idea for them to proceed with.
40.
If my client is a vegan, and if its not a problem for him/her, well its a a problem for me too, i'll give him a light training.
41.
If my client is a vegan, and if its not a problem for him/her, well its a a problem for me too, i'll give him a light training.
42.
Again if it helps the client achieve their goals and they are ok with it then I have no problems with it. It just means their training programme needs to be altered to a lighter intensity due to lack of meat in the diet.
43.
It is an individuals choice.
44.
Personally I am very impressed with their lifestyle. I always think they might be very brave to choose what they want to, they lifestyle.
45.
In terms of a vegan lifestyle I think it depends on the indivdual because a vegan lifestyle can be expensive and time consuming of finding the correct food. If a client is to come in with the idea of wanting to lead a vegan lifestyle I will support it however will ask them to think of the bigger picture.
46.
Its good for some people but for everyone.
47.
Yes I would like to support for vegan lifestyle it plays very natural and healthy role in our lifestyle . It's really important to maintain it in our lives .
48.
Personally I believe different things work for different people.
49.
I suppose there are ways of having a healthy diet even though your a vegan. People are vegans for a reason. I support it all the way because its a lifestyle of a person and its how they live.
50.
There are always benefits to every lifestyle.
51.
I appreciate it because you can still get the nutrients needed for a full balanced protein can be consumed through vegan diet.
52.
I support any lifestyle that makes the person feel healthy and happy. I believe the Vegan path is a hard one, but with long lasting rewards.
53.
I do not have the right to comment on somebody else's opinion. Everyone has the right to think and feel how they wish.
54.
I think its up to the individual. As long as they are making sure they getting all the nutrients their body need. I personally am not into it.
55.
I think personally it's down to the idividual as long as they have enough knowledge about foods they need to get sufficient vitamins and nutrients.
56.
Yes it the person is very intelligent and has a diet with ample supplementary nutritional value instead of meat.
57.
If it's for health reasons or they feel passionate about their beliefs I support it.
58.
I think is overatted you can balnace btween them.
59.
I support the vegan life style all the way.
60.
It is personal lifestyle choice, I do not hold a strong negative or positive attitude in relation to vegan lifestyle. Vegetables should be on part of daily balance nutrition.
