So, not sure how anyone else feels about this.
I usually do not tell anyone that I'm Vegan and especially not right off the bat. Most people find out because someone else told them. Others find out because it is a food situation or food discussion and so many questions are asked that I just have to tell them. Others find out because of my business Eat4Health.
This being said, I still tend to call myself a Vegetarian because most people *think* they know what this means and the word Vegan in itself usually raises more questions.
Just a thought
