Final Verdict: Yay or Nay?
It wasn’t the easiest decision but we are going to say, Yay. Nevertheless, after looking at all the pros and cons of the vegan diet, we believe you should only follow it if you are trying to be healty.
Going vegan because you need to lose weight can be a waste of time, since diets are tough to control and you might end up with the yo-yo effect (losing weight and gaining it all again).
If you want to ensure staying healthy and vegan, we have some final tips for you:
● Eat a lot of vegetables and make them the star of the show of every meal. Be sure to add a lot of spices because they can enhance the flavor of every meal.
● Eat a lot of grains – legumes and beans.
● Don’t think that all vegan products are healthy. Choose wisely.
● Don’t forget to spend time in the sun, and take your iron and zinc supplements.
● Eat a lot of green vegetables (like broccoli, spinach and cabbage) because they have high levels of calcium, which is good for bone structure.
● Go nuts with different types of nuts! Try to consume them on a daily basis.
