Vegan diet

A vegan or plant-based diet excludes all animal products. Including meat,

dairy and eggs. When people follow it correctly , a vegan diet can be highly

nutritious, reduce the risk of chronic diseases, and aid weight loss.

Increasing number of people are moving toward vegan diets due to health,

animal welfare, or environment concerns. A 2018 Gallup poll reports that

about 3% of people in the united states are fully vegan and notes that sales

of plant-based foods are rising. Vegan diet tend to be rich in nutrients and

low in saturated fats. Research suggests that the diet can improve heart

health, protect against cancer, and lower the risk of type 2 diabetes.

However, people eating only plant-based foods need to be more aware of

how to obtain certain nutrients, including iron, calcium and vitamin-B12,

that usually come from an omnivorous diet. Including its health benefits and

risks ,as well as important things to consider before trying it out. We also

provide recipe ideas and tips for following a vegan diet. In this article, we

take a close look at the vegan diet.


A vegan diet involves eating only foods comprising plants. Those who follow

this diet avoid all animal products, including meet, dairy, and eggs. Some

people also avoid eating honey. For some, being vegan is a dietary choice,

while for others. It is a lifestyle choice. People who choose to live a vegan

lifestyle may also avoid clothes , soaps , and other products that use or

contain parts of animals. Such as leather and animal fur. Some adopt this

lifestyle for its environmental benefits as a sustainable diet. Vegan diets

tend to include plenty of fruits, vegetable, beans, nuts and seeds. Eating a variety of these foods will provide a wide range of important vitamins,

minerals, healthful fats, and protein. People following this diet

should ,however , take care to get key nutrients that people usually

consume in animal products. These nutrient include iron, protein , calcium,

vitamin B-12, and vitamin D.


The main difference between vegetarian and vegan is that although

vegetarian do not eat meat(including cows, pigs, chicken, and fish), they

consume dairy products, eggs, or both. The vegan diet excludes all products

with animal-based ingredients. The vegan diet is more restrictive, so people

will need to think more about where their nutrients are coming from to

ensure that they meet their daily dietary requirements.
