Vegan Diet Plan: The What, Why, Who, When & How

Cutting veggies for vegan diet plan

Unlike some other so-called “diets,” a vegan diet plan is somewhat of a journey to be explored and continually fine-tuned based on your experiences.

Let’s briefly cover the most basic questions:


What is a vegan diet plan? The definition is both clear and broad. “Eating vegan” means eating only plant-based foods and nothing that is an animal, comes from an animal, or is processed using animal. That being said, as much as this may seem restrictive if you are used to eating animal products as part of your every day routine, it’s actually incredibly expansive! There are countless different vegetables, fruits, legumes, nuts, seeds, and whole grains to incorporate into your meals. Discovering plant foods you’ve never even tried is part of the excitement of going vegan. 


Why is a vegan diet plan beneficial? The reasons are numerous and powerful. First, going vegan means doing your part to help put an end to animal suffering. Today’s factory farming of animals is horrendously cruel, and by eating and wearing animals and their bi-products you support the industries responsible for the suffering. Second, going vegan means improving your health by preventing, treating, and even curing many diseases. Heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, obesity, and other top killers are often caused by an unhealthy diet containing animal products, preservatives, processed, and/or artificial ingredients. You have the power to take your health into your own hands with a vegan diet plan! Third, you can feel and look younger, more energized, and sexier by going vegan. A balanced plant-based diet improves your skin’s condition, gives you energy, drops body fat, increases circulation, improves digestion, just to name a few benefits. Last, by going vegan, you are reducing your environmental footprint and playing a role in saving our planet. If you haven’t seen it yet, watch Cowspiracy, an amazing, interesting, entertaining, and unbiased look into how animal agriculture impacts the world and our resources. The statistics are staggering. Leaving future generations a healthy earth is simply the right thing to do. 


Who should be on a vegan diet plan? This one is simple. Everyone! Everybody will benefit from eating a whole foods plant-based diet.
