Vegetarian to Vegan - What are the Benefits?

Vegetarian to Vegan - What are the Benefits?

Vegan diets are not a new option, but a lifestyle change that has received a resurgence in recent years. The term vegan was coined by Donald Watson in 1944 when he started the Vegan Society in England. The movement started with vegetarians who refrained from eating eggs and dairy products, but later morphed to include a lifestyle that refrained from exploiting animals.

A vegan diet is rich in fiber, antioxidants and other plant compounds. Studies also show that vegan diets typically result in lower a BMI (Body Mass Index) than other diets, due to a reduced caloric intake while still maintaining nutrient dense foods. This can also lead to health benefits for those suffering from diabetes and declining kidney function, and the World Health Organization links a vegan diet to a reduction in cancer risk. A risk of lower heart disease, as well as reduction in arthritic pain, have also been attributed to diets rich in plant nutrients and low in meat.

Maintaining a healthy vegan diet can be difficult, however. Ensuring that your macrobiotics are on level and preserving the right amounts of certain vitamins such as B12 can be a challenge, especially for those just starting a vegan diet.
