30 Jan 5 things that happen to your body when you go Vegan
Rise in Energy Levels
Plant based diets filled with all of the good stuff (fruits, veggies, whole grains), are absolute
nutrient powerhouses! Your body’s vitamin and mineral levels will sky rocket, and
accompanied by the fact that you’ll be consuming very little saturated fat, your energy
levels will be through the roof. However, as a vegan you have the luxury of eating more,
as fruits and vegetables aren’t very calorie dense, so you must make sure you’re eating
enough calories to experience this benefit!
Ever think your bad skin could just be a result of lingering teenage troubles? Well, think
again! It could be dairy causing you those pesky spots. Milk and other dairy products are
packed with hormones and inflammatory substances that are awful for your complexion.
Once you ditch the dairy, you’ll notice not only will your skin clear up, but it’ll look brighter!
I’m afraid for all you dairy lovers, that this does mean giving up your beloved cheese, but there
are plenty of incredibly delicious vegan alternatives out there!
As mentioned earlier, fruits and vegetables are much lower in calories compared to meat and
dairy, which often means accidental, easy weight loss when you switch to a vegan diet. Paired
with the high energy levels you’ll be experiencing, you’ll want to move more! Resulting in a
healthier, lighter you! Again, if you don’t want to lose weight, make sure you’re eating plenty
to stop this from happening. Pile up that plate!
Now, the meat sweats aren’t just a myth, my friend! Switching to a vegan diet can actually
make you smell better! Eating meat has an effect on your body odour, as they’re much harder
to digest – hence the sweating! Studies have shown that giving up meat can help banish your B.O
– a delightful and unexpected benefit of a vegan diet!
Plant based foods have a much higher water and fibre content than non-vegan foods. This will make things flow through you much more easily and quickly, so be prepared for more frequent trips to the bathroom! Eating vegan leave you feeling lighter and less bloated – hooray!
