Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
Have you ever tried a vegan lifestyle to know it's unhealthy? There is just as much convincing information out there that veganism is healthy. There are plenty of people out there who are longtime vegans in great health. There are also plenty of people who went vegan and they sware that it destroyed their health. Also every vegan diet is different. Were these people eating enough calories? Too much fat? I don't know, and want to find out the truth for myself, so I'm trying it. I feel much better so far.
I feel ok supplementing b-12 because we would have gotten this from eating bacteria in dirt, but since the dirt is not the same anymore and we don't eat it, we have to supplement. The b-12 I take is vegan.

Have you ever tried a vegan diet? No and I don't want to. I won't do strict paleo either because I love cheese and I don't see any reason to give it up.
That said, there are periods of time, often during the summer, when I eat mostly vegetarian for a week or so but there always comes a point when my body starts telling me to eat meat right now and I listen.
