DIET and NUTRITION

There are many benefits to eating a plant based diet where your health and the environment are concerned. Being a Veganist means eating a plant based diet for the benefit of your own health and the benefit of the ecosystem. This book offers you instructions on making the gradual transition to a plant based lifestyle. Vegan diets are high in fiber because plant based foods have a lot of fiber. This keeps you full for a longer period of time. Plant based diets are also naturally low in fat. You don’t have to count calories when eating a plant-based diet because the foods you will eat are fiber rich and nutrient dense. On a plant based diet, you will gradually eliminate all meat and animal byproducts. For those needing ideas, there are three weeks of menus included in Veganist. Below is one day of eating on a plant based diet:

  • Breakfast: Steel cut oatmeal, sliced bananas, walnuts, rice milk
  • Lunch: Whole grain pasta with veggie sausages, sun dried tomatoes, broccoli, salad
  • Dinner: Seitan parmesan with tomato sauce, green beans, mashed potatoes

There are laid out tips for how to make the switch in a gradual way. You don’t have to stop eating meat and animal byproducts all at once. Veganist is filled with information from doctors and many research instances that show the benefits of consuming a plant-based diet.

EXERCISE

Exercise is mentioned as a very important component for building strong bones. Getting adequate exercise is highlighted but there aren’t any specific recommendations on what exercises you should do.

CONCLUSION

Veganist is a great book for those thinking of moving to a plant based diet. Even if you are unsure how to do it, this book outlines specific steps to make a gradual transition to a diet that will benefit your health long-term. Not only will a plant based diet allow you to drop weight without having to count calories, you can fight off disease and get rid of previously diagnosed diseases.
