Health Benefits of Going Vegan?
Vegan transformation stories you should definitely check out:
Some nutrition resources:
Some info about basic vegan nutrition:
My story is NOT dramatic:
When I went vegan I didn't notice any huge changes in my health except that it was much easier to maintain my weight. I had hoped for some weight-loss, but that requires more concentrated effort. But weight maintenance as a vegan is easy.
I will say this: I am very healthy. I have low cholesterol (116) and I have a healthy weight.
The MAJOR changes I've seen after I went vegan were psychological and emotional. I feel more in tune with myself, I'm living more in sinc with my values, I'm working more towards my goals. My life has more meaning and I feel more connected.
You are what you eat.
Not just when in regards to physical health, but also in regards to emotional and psychological health: your diet reflects your values.
If you value life, eat like you value life. Eat like you value your life and the lives of others. Go vegan.
