How to Be a Vegan the Right Way

How to Be a Vegan the Right Way

What you eat (and what you don’t eat) can go a long way in helping you achieve your health goals. Focusing on your nutrition can help you lose weight, improve mental clarity, boost sports performance, and contribute to muscle gain. 

When you are considering a new diet or lifestyle shift, it can be overwhelming at the start, and you might have more questions than answers: Where do you begin? What sources can you trust? Which diet is right for you? 

That’s why Barry Hughes, DC and our team here at Premier Chiropractic in Pearland, Texas, are happy to offer nutritional coaching 一 and that includes vegan coaching as well. Below, we shed light on one type of diet that you might consider: veganism.

What is veganism and why is it so popular?

Vegan diets avoid any animal products, including products made with or by animals. This includes:

Acceptable food includes fresh fruit and vegetables, legumes, beans, nuts, seeds, bread, rice, pasta, vegetable oils, and non-dairy alternatives e.g., almond milk.

Plant-based diets are growing in popularity because researchers have linked plant-based diets with decreased risk of cardiovascular disease. Other benefits of vegan diets include increased gut health and may support individuals with chronic conditions.
