Hey guys; I'm new to the concept of veganism. Need some advice and help from experienced people here.

Raw food diet and veganism have a lot in common, but the first one doesn't necessarily mean you need to avoid all animal products, which vegans do. Some raw food diets include raw fish, raw dairy products, raw meats or eggs, and even some cooked animal foods too. If you keeps only to veganism, you can eat cooked food. Raw vegans don't consume any animal products whatsoever and very few cooked foods, which means this way of eating can be hard to keep up. Some nutrients are simply more easily obtained when you include some animal foods in your diet. If you keeps to raw food veganism, it's too easy to run low on critical vitamins and minerals, plus protein. The most apparent problems are nutritional deficiencies, particularly for vitamins B12 and D, selenium, zinc, iron and two omega-3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA. I recommend start from either raw food diet or veganism, but not from both simultaneously. And consult with a dietologist before, he will give you individual diet recommendations considering your current health condition.

I'm looking at it from a much more practical level then theoretical; Is the vegan lifestyle time consuming? is it easy for someone busy with stressful busy schedule?

It depends. If you're eating out a lot (including the cafeteria at work) your options are quite limited unless you have access to vegan restaurants.

I was a vegan for a while and found it too stressful. I admire people maintaining this lifestyle though.

Unless you give specific information about what you ate as a vegetarian this is a completely useless and misleading post.
