Do vegetarians ever drive cars with leather seats?

Asked: Do vegetarians ever drive cars with leather seats?

I work with a vegetarian and a vegan, I also have a friend who is vegetarian, my friend is vegetarian purely because she doesn't like the taste of any meat. The vegan and other vegetarian I work with complain about animal cruelty to eat meat, but will freely wear leather boots and jackets, which in my opinion is silly. I don't mind if people are vegetarians but if you want to preach about animal cruelty some of them should look at what they are wearing or their furniture. (Note not all vegetarians or vegans are like this only idiots)

RESORT TO ANOREXIA OR WORKOUT!?

Asked: RESORT TO ANOREXIA OR WORKOUT!?

Nobody ever told me I was fat, its just me. People actually tell me that im skinny all the time, but I just tell myself that Im fat. I am a 15 year old girl. I'm 4`10" and 94 pounds. That sounds tiny, but my legs are hippos. Like they are so fat. I have slight abs and my arms are toned so I don't understand why my legs are just fat. From the age 11I started having body image.issues. I would starve myself by only eating a yogurt or granola bar for lunch and use the excuse that I'm vegetarian. I eat healthy. I even say no to cookies and everything like that. It's gotten so bad that I can't even stand looking at myself in the mirror because they are so huge, size 1-3. I don't know what to do anymore. I can't tell anybody(told my boyfriend, he told me I wasn't fat)because its embarrassing and I'm ashamed of my actions. I just.want to have skinny, defined thighs. Also, I would feel stupid for telling my doctor because I can't stop these thoughts. I don't want my mom to find out. I look at bigger, curvier women and I think of them as beautiful. But I look at myself and think I'm fat. Is there any help lines for girls like me to call and get help?

BQ: If I work out(run on treadmill) this summer non stop, will that help tone them?

Are raw milk, cheese and yogurt good for weight loss and acne?

Asked: Are raw milk, cheese and yogurt good for weight loss and acne?

Since I was 13 I have gone from eating normal organic food to eating vegetarian then vegan then flourless sugarless foods, gluten free, and raw vegan…but through all of this I have continued to have acne (although its worsened by all pasteurized dairy and gluten) and I am not all happy with my weight. I'm personally a sugar addict (I love the stuff) and that def. does not help. Anyways I guess I've just had a hard time finding balance and moderation admist my food sensetivities, so I was wondering if raw milk and other raw dairy products could help me…

Why do I get so out of breath when walking, climbing stairs and exercising?

Asked: Why do I get so out of breath when walking, climbing stairs and exercising?

I am 20 years old, female, I weigh around 8stone and I am 5ft5 in height. I don't smoke, drink, or eat fatty foods (I'm vegetarian).

Everytime I do simple things like walking or jogging up one flight of stairs I am gasping for air and my heart is pounding.

Could there be something wrong?
