Is a Vegan Diet Good For You?
As you may not yet have made up your mind that using and taking Phentermine is going to be the best way for you to lose weight, we do have many additional articles and guides available for you throughout our website.
This one is going to be taking a look at what you can expect when you are on a Vegan diet and we will be looking at whether that type of diet is good for you and effective.
We can’t deny it, vegetables are good for us. Like it or not, it provides more nutrients than meat and even fish. However, taking on a vegan diet full time is not an easy thing to do, and most certainly not something we’d recommend without educating yourself. You see, vegan diets need to be carefully balanced, and sometimes when cooking it’s on a par with having a PhD in biochemistry!
There are of course supplements you can take however a strictly vegetable based diet is not ideal.
A load of spinach does not contain the same amount of iron that a rare steak of beef does. Also Broccoli, although tasty, does not provide any calcium (say goodbye to the cheese and broccoli bake the recipe is below).
As humans, we are omnivores, meaning we eat meat, dairy and veg. Most of us take milk and cream in our tea and coffee, eat cheese and eat cream in our chocolate éclairs. This all provides calcium, which is imperative for healthy bones and teeth.
This all being said, there are benefits to a vegan diet, however, it should be adopted maybe only twice a week. Firstly, the vegan diet is full if fibre, which helps your digestive system, and especially after Christmas and New Year’s over indulgence when you tend to feel like an over filled balloon, it can help get your system back to feeling itself.
The second benefit is that you’ll lower cholesterol and blood sugar levels, meaning a lower chance of heart attack or stroke. Honestly, try doing it the 5:2-way! Monday and Tuesday eat meat, Wednesday go veggie or vegan, Thursday have a light Cheese based dish like an omelette, Friday have fish, Saturday and Sunday have a balanced dinner of meat/fish and vegetables. Basically, do it in moderation!
Cheese and Broccoli Bake:
