Life as a vegan can be tough during the holidays. Sometimes we are curious to try how this food taste but the meat stop us to try it. If you’re a curious vegan, you can try this tips.
Many people initially feel great when giving up meat. Oftentimes, when people go vegetarian, they also eliminate processed foods and sugar, and their overall caloric intake will decrease. Although many feel that the elimination of meat is the solution, cutting out the junk food is often the real reason folks report more energy and weight loss.
Sometimes, though, people begin feeling like their body needs to eat meat again—and there’s nothing wrong with that. Listening to your body is of the utmost importance, and for some people, a vegetarian or vegan diet simply doesn’t feel good. Some simply need more protein, and animal products are the most bioavailable source. Plants contain only the precursor to vitamin A called beta-carotene. Almost half of the population has a genetic factor limiting their ability to convert beta-carotene to vitamin A, which is important for healthy skin, eyes, and our immune systems.
Iron and B12 deficiency are also common, especially among women, and a meat-free diet can sometimes increase feelings of fatigue, depression, cold hands and feet, and dizziness.
The most important thing to realize is that there’s no one diet that works for everyone, and if your health is suffering, it’s OK to give yourself permission to eat meat.
