What is Veganuary?

New year, new you?

Have you considered a change to your diet, how about Veganuary? Could you go vegan, and would it benefit your body?

Over 630,000 people took part in Veganuary last year and it is suspected there will be more partaking this year.

Veganism is still a relatively new trend with a lot of people still speculating in regards to its benefits. Thinking logically, you are cutting out a lot of fats and protein from your diet as well as a lot of highly processed foods. Veganism could be the way forward in reducing cardiovascular disease as it can help reduce cholesterol if a healthy diet is followed. It might also help reduce the high obesity levels observed here in the UK. That is if a healthy vegan diet is followed, and one does not survive off of juice and crisps!

It has been speculated that a vegan diet would not suit highly active people or athletes due to them being unable to maintain muscle mass and becoming malnourished if not eating correctly. It would also mean being deficient in B12 which would lead to fatigue and poor oxygen transportation in the body.

It is not all doom and gloom! Veggies can be very tasty; they can broaden your cooking ability and expose you to new foods. You don’t have to commit to an entire month, perhaps go vegan or even vegetarian one day a week? Even this will help in climate change, your carbon footprint and your health!

However, if you are thinking of adopting a vegan diet make sure you eat a balanced diet and ensure to have an intake of all your nutrients and vitamins. If you can’t obtain these naturally from food, talk to your pharmacist about what multivitamins or tablets would be best for you.
