Changing to Vegan

Daryl Warren - Monday, April 27, 2015


A recent article in the Sydney Morning Herald discussed how vegan diets are becoming more and more popular among Australia people, but the article also discussed how changing from a regular diet to a vegan diet can be difficult if not done properly.

In terms of diets paleo still leads when it comes to cook books, but the number of vegetarian and vegan cook books are on the rise. Kym Staton the founder of the Sydney Vegan Club reported in the article that around 200 new members are joining each month, this figure is double than the rate just 1 year ago.

But excluding all animal food (including dairy and eggs) isn’t and easy process, especially if done overnight. It can be very difficult cutting out certain foods cold turkey, as well as have negative effects nutritionally. The article suggested that going vegan more gradually is the best way to stick to a vegan diet. For example some people might stop having milk and switch to soy milk and might replace meat with soybeans or tofu. These changes are more gradual and also maintain sufficient nutrition. The article suggested that people who just completely cut out animal products from their diets are the ones who are more likely to fail at their change in diet.  

Substituting foods is a great way to ease into a different diet as well as maintain healthy nutrition. For more information on the article click on the link below.
