Vegan diets have been scrutinized as something that is very difficult to follow. People would rather place a hunk of meat on their table than take the time to plan out a meat and dairy free diet. Meat, while more filling than fruits, veggies and grains, is not nearly as healthy. Meat has been known to increase a person’s chance of getting cancer and heart problems. Meat is treated with a lot of steroids and preservatives that can be harmful to a person’s body. Eaten in small quantities meat can be mostly harmless, but a Vegan diet ensures that the body will not be harmed by these destructive substances at all.
Diabetes is on the rise due to genetics and poor eating habits. Vegans have a lower chance of getting diabetes because they have a well balanced diet. Of course it is still possible for a Vegan to get diabetes, but they have better chances of avoiding it. A Vegan diet tends to have more fiber and better carbs that the body has an easier time of digesting. Many people who are at high risk for Diabetes find it easier to follow a Vegan way of life than to actually go on a diet.
A Vegan diet can prolong a person’s life. If you take care of your body and help it run more smoothly it will last longer. When you take away anything that might irritate the body or cause an allergic reaction you will have healthier skin, nails, and hair. Vegans tend to have more energy and don’t need to eat as much food. The Vegan diet also helps people cope with Chronic diseases such as Chrohn’s/Colitis. You will very rarely find a Vegan that is overweight because they do not indulge in sweets or large amounts of meat. If you feel like you need a life change, perhaps it is time to turn to a Vegan life style.
