Study Shows How A Vegan Diet Can Improve Overall Health

A recent investigation found that a vegan diet can make you happier and even more productive at work. Only 1 million American’s follow a purely vegan lifestyle.

 

One registered dietician shared the health benefits of going vegan:

 

“There are a few potential nutrition benefits of a vegan diet:

1. Eating less meat and more plant-based foods is good for your heart and shows a lower risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.

2. Subbing plant-based foods for meat can help with weight management.

3. Eating more plants means more fiber, which studies show most of us don’t get enough of.

4. It provides a few benefits for the environment.”

Another expert shared tips on how to properly follow a vegan diet:

 

“While a vegan diet decreased intake of animal based saturated fats and potentially inflammatory elements of animal protein, you have to work a little bit harder to get enough protein in your diet, you can struggle to get enough iron that your body can use, and cannot get enough Vitamin B-12 from food sources of nutrition. That being said, if you would like to try following a vegan diet, I highly suggest working with a Registered Dietitian to ensure you are supplementing appropriately and making healthful choices.”
