4 Great Reasons To Go Vegan
We currently live in an age where everything is catered towards convenience. More and more people are living an especially hectic lifestyle that leaves them rushing around like headless chickens, wishing there was simply more hours in the day. Unfortunately, one thing associated with living a hectic lifestyle is the fact that most people tend to be consuming far too many of the wrong types of food. As mentioned, everything these days seem to be catered towards convenience as opposed to health, which is why fast food places and processed ready meals are seemingly everywhere.
These foods are unhealthy and extremely bad for us as they contain little to no nutrients in the slightest. The good news is that more and more people are now making the decision to be fitter and healthier and as a result, veganism is actually proving to be quite the popular lifestyle choice in many parts of the world.
I went Vegan in 2006 and here’s a look are 4 great reasons why:
It’s a great way of losing weight – A vegan diet is largely plant based and rich in foods that are packed full of nutrients and contain very little fat indeed, and virtually no harmful fats in the slightest. Not surprisingly then, vegans are considered some of the slimmest and fittest people in the whole world. If you’re looking for a lifestyle change that allows you to lose weight and keep it off, veganism is for you.
You will have more energy – Another benefit of going vegan is the fact that the foods you eat will all be natural and easily digested so they won’t sit heavy in your stomach for hours upon hours. Because of this, the body is able to break them down, extract their nutrients, and metabolise them and convert them into energy at a much quicker and more efficient rate than processed junk food.
You will be healthier and happier – Another benefit of being vegan is the fact that you will be far healthier and far happier than you could have ever imagined. The reason for this is because the foods you eat are packed full of nutrients including vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, all of which help strengthen the immune system helping us to fight off illness and disease. Vegans are far less likely to suffer from heart problems or certain forms of cancer when compared with somebody that consumes junk food and processed food on a regular basis.
It helps save animals – As well as health related benefits, going vegan also provides certain morality based benefits as it helps to protect and save animals and reduce the carbon footprint on the earth. As more and more people become vegan, the demand for the slaughter of animals becomes less and less so don’t be fooled, it can and does make a difference. In fact, every vegan saves around 100 animals every single year.
