Does sticking to a vegan diet help with weight loss? A study undertaken by Harvard University suggests that people who opt for veganism have a better chance of losing more weight than their counterparts.
When comparing data from the vegan diet plan to the Atkins diet, people lost an average of 2.02 kg more than those who consumed meat and other animal products.
Going vegan is a lifestyle choice which means you don’t consume or use any animal products. This includes excluding dairy, eggs, meat, butter and honey in your diet, or wearing leather, silk, wool and shells.
It’s worth noting that many products contain animal by-products, so look out for certain dyes and preservatives, lanolin and bovine gelatine.
Aside from the weight loss benefits, more people are going vegan because it’s better for the planet, promotes sustainability, and consists mainly of unprocessed foods, which has proven health benefits. To get started on the vegan diet, we’ve picked our favourite vegan recipes to help you along.
