Is The Vegan Diet For Me?


Many vegans report that since they changed their diet they feel much better. This is not about magic or covert advertising, it is simply about the best fit for our body. Western culture encrypts within it a great many bad habits that because we have become so accustomed to, we do not notice how harmful they are to us. Improper nutrition is just one of them, but one of the most important is because our diet is what drives the body and once we change it, our body will start to respond to us. You should consider looking at nutritional therapy

Weight loss – the diseases of modern times

Western culture has brought into our lives many good things like medicine, hygiene, and technology. However, along with them we also got used to a lifestyle that could harm us. If in the past there was a problem of lack of nutrients, which caused diseases, today the biggest trouble of our diet is an excess of fats, sugars, and even proteins.

The popular diets of the past are full of meat, cheeses, and eggs claiming that these foods contain the proteins and calcium we need, but the truth is that we do not always take care to tell us the whole truth about these foods. Half of the calcium that is in the milk of our body is not absorbed at all and in addition, it also prevents our body from absorbing iron. Animal foods have too much protein and excess protein is just as harmful to us as a lack of protein is harmful to us. One of the problems of excess protein is the disease osteoporosis (excessive loss of calcium). This disease occurs mainly among people today. The body’s natural process is the loss of calcium that we need to supplement through our food, but in this disease, the body loses most of its calcium. So no matter how much milk you drink – if you are feeding on animals, most of the calcium will probably not stay in your body.

Benefits of the vegan diet

A balanced plant-based diet provides the body with all the nutrients it needs without causing the excesses leading to modern-day diseases.  While cow’s milk has estrogen at a level that is not right for us, soy has phytoestrogen that balances the hormonal system. While meat has cholesterol that we do not need from an external source, plants have phytosterols that maintain the structure of the cell similar in function to cholesterol and balance the level of lipids in the blood by reducing the absorption of cholesterol from animal foods and lowering “bad” cholesterol level. The vegan diet is based on vegetables, fruits, grains, and legumes so not only is it healthier and allows for balanced and proper weight loss, but it also includes far fewer calories in it. The more we keep these foods close to their natural configuration, the better and fatter they will be for us. Beyond the fact that veganism is a lifestyle designed to stop the use of animals and their bodies, many define it as a healthy diet that on the one hand provides the body with everything it needs.
