Tips for New Vegans

Those wanting a try a new way of eating, be it for one day per week or permanently, have begun to look past not just animal meat but also animal products. Veganism can be a great way to improve your health while also help you environment.  For those who venture into this newly found territory be wary that when removing certain aspects of your diet (such as meat) you must find other way of replacing the nutrients you may lose.

Protein is most likely the most easily lost nutrient, especially when removing meat from ones diet. It can be replaced by the consumption of seeds, such as sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds. Tofu are also a great way of replacing protein, and can be added to many meals. Nuts and legumes also are high in protein and can be added to meals easily.

Vegan diets tend to be low in fat (which can be a good thing), but a healthy diet must still have heart friendly fatty acids. To help maintain these levels, coconut oil, seed butter and margarines can be consumed.

The above two are examples of how there may be a deficiency of nutrients if converting to a vegan diet, for a more in-depth look visit the website below.

Vegetarian Diets Protecting Against Colon Cancer

Colorectal cancer is one of leading causes of death from cancer in Australia, a new study shows that a vegetarian diet might lower your risk for this type of cancer.

Researches in California looked into the diets of over 70,000 people, and found that 22 % had a lower risk of colon cancer, this group of people were also vegetarian. For vegetarians that choose to eat fish, the reductions were even greater, at 22%.

It is believed that the reduction in colon cancer is due to a vegetarian diet being higher in nutrients such as folate, calcium and fibre. It is also believed that red meat reduction could also be related to this decrease of colon cancer.

In the end there is nothing you can specifically do to prevent colon cancer, but you can reduce the risk. It all comes down to watching your weight, what you eat and the drugs such as alcohol and tobacco that you consume.
