In this article I will give a brief explanation on how Vegan diet is created and why you could benefit from trying it.

More and more people are going vegan. By eliminating all animal foods (including dairy products, eggs, honey) vegans claimed to be getting more than enough nutrients that they will ever need. Nonetheless there are several nutrients that can be hard to find in a vegan diet but that does not deter vegans in keeping their diet. But does it really make sense?

Why Vegan?
A nutrition society in Europe recommends a balanced and varied vegetarian diet (with egg and milk) as a permanent diet. In principle, a vegetarian diet is balanced. But you have to know what and how much you should consume in order to succeed with veganism.

This is more difficult for vegans compared to their omnivors counterparts. They have to find sources of nutrients that usually comes from animal products such as meat, eggs, and milk. Some vegans also completely prohibits using wool or silk but that is more to the clothing side of veganism.

Being vegan is often associated with having the better moral conscience in the case of factory farming and torturing conditions on animals. Vegans argue that animals have to suffer in the meat industry for the production of milk and eggs.

For example, a cow gives milk only once every 6 months, male chickens are also slaughtered daily because they are seen as invaluable because only females lays eggs. 45 million male chickens are killed each year in a country in Europe immediately after hatching. These made vegans very angry.

Those who go vegan not only have an active part in animal rescue, but it will also bring a lot of health benefits. As many studies have shown, vegans are less likely to be overweight and are also less likely to be affected by high blood pressure, diabetes, heart attack and even cancer. But will you be immortal? Obviously not.

Risk of Malnutrition in Every Diet
Nutrition experts see the exclusively vegetable diet critical, because who is not very well versed in the selection of its food, runs the risk of developing deficiency symptoms.

Bottlenecks can occur with these vital substances:
• Proteins
• Vitamin B12
• Calcium
• Iron
• Iodine
• Vitamin D

So, as some nutrients in vegetable foods are lower in concentration or not, it is imperative that you, as a vegan, work intensively with your diet and make your diet consciously. So you largely avoid deficiencies in nutrient intake.

If you are vegan, it is important to study the nutritional content of foods by studying sewing value tables. Without a sound knowledge of a sensible food selection, a vegan diet can easily lead to a shortage of vital nutrients.

Being vegan is a personal choice but if you do decides to try it you need to make sure you get enough nutrients to function normally. The transition from normal diet to a vegan diet might be hard for some people but if you persevere through it you might find that going vegan is not as bad as you think.

Nowadays you could get many variations of vegan foods, including delicious protein chocolate chip cookies. There is no reason to at least try going vegan awhile!
