What to know about vegan diets:
A vegan or plant-based diet prohibits all animal products, such as meat, dairy and eggs. When followed properly and a vegan diet can be very nourishing, reduce the risk of chronic diseases, and help people to lose weight. Vegetarian diets typically contain a high amount of nutrients and few saturated fats. According to research, eating right can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes and prevent cancer and heart health diseases. However, individuals who consume only plant-based foods need to be more knowledgeable about how to obtain specific nutrients, such as iron, calcium and vitamin B-12.
