How many times have you seen a sad girl stuffing her face with ice-cream or some fat filled meaty food? We do it as well, don’t we? It’s just that we get some liquor and get wasted as well so the focus remains on this, but it’s not really true that we become vegans after, let’s say, being dumped. We tend to stick to this.
