Unboxing Veganism; Myths And Truths

So it literally seems like every time we turn around, there is a new rave in the world of fitness, it seems there is a new kind of diet, exercise or meal that will solve all our problems and so I am here to help you ladies, know what’s real, what’s not and what’s just plain untrue šŸ˜ŽšŸ˜Ž.

Today, I want to give you ladies the gist on veganism. What it actually is (no it is not a diet where you only eat grass and beans šŸ˜‚šŸ˜‚), what the benefits are (no it is not the fountain of youth šŸ˜‘šŸ˜‘) and how you can go into it fully or incorporate it into your lifestyle šŸ’ŖšŸ’Ŗ.


So what is veganism?

Veganism is a practice of not including animal products in daily consumption of meals. It means consuming a diet that consists of solely plant sources of food and refuses to consume meats or animal produce.

Vegan meals are comprised chiefly of fruits, plants, legumes and semi solid meals.

The benefits of eating a strictly vegan diet are quite numerous as it has been well established that fruits, vegetables and other unprocessed meals are the best kind of food to consume.

The benefits range from faster and sustainable Weightloss since most fruits/veggies generally have less calories, to glowing skin because of the increased intake of fruits which have vitamins in them that are responsible for glowing skin and a general feeling of lightness or being able to carry your body weight.

Of course with the level of pollution in the world today and the kind of toxins that animals are exposed too, the benefit in eating chiefly fruits and vegetables can be clearly understood.

Of course this is not to say that eating beef or chicken will give you cancer, because despite the speculations, there is no conclusive research to show that meat or fish causes cancer.

I for one, I’m a strong believer in eating healthy and balanced diets. I believe that we can eat šŸ˜šŸ˜ all classes of food albeit in moderation and with exercise of course.

That said, veganism may be an option if you’re advised by a physician for health reasons. It is also useful for detoxes and periods of cleansing in your body but beyond that, you can actually enjoy your balanced and healthy diets.

Finally, on how you can inculcate the habit of veganism into your daily diet, we’ll start with a bowl of fruits and vegetables to including it as a side in every meal.

As i mentioned before, it is also useful for detoxing which is very important.

However, if you’re trying to go into veganism as a lifestyle, I think it’s very laudable and with the plethora of information available online, you can find a fit for you. I would say don’t get into it in a haste, perhaps really understand why you want to do it and find resources online to read up.

After that, you can slowly begin to wean your body and feed it more fruits and vegetables, increasing the portions until it becomes a meal for you.

There are studies to suggest that vegans may not be getting enough protein but that can be solved by using supplements and so I would say, so research on the best kind of supplements and take them as needed.

Don’t worry, contrary to popular opinion, you’re not banned to a life of grass and beans, there are several forums and online resources for vegan meals. You can learn how to make meals from scratch and make a variety of them.

It may be day ting at first, but eventually, you will get the hang of it and begin to enjoy your new lifestyle.

There you have it ladies, the myths and truths of veganism. Do you think going vegan is something you might do or not? I want to hear you ladies.

Until next time, stay healthy and beautiful
