Vegan = Healthy … Right?

Wrong! When some people start a vegan diet, they load up on foods like processed veggie burgers, processed veggie cheese, processed veggie hotdogs, and other, well, processed veggie-based foods. While this can help you to stick to your meat- and animal-free goals, some of these foods aren’t giving you the nutritional benefits you would get if you actually ate whole, real, non-processed foods. Just like with a meat based diet processed foods are a big no-no so make sure you watch what you eat!

  1. I prefer to have fruits in the morning and denser foods in the evening. This allows fruits to be digested completely before ingesting foods that slow the digestive process, i.e., fats and starches as well as high protein foods.

    This plan has helped many of my patients who are interested in losing weight accomplish their goal. When you get used to eating this way it is easier to meatless for an entire day. This will bring you closer to transitioning eating vegan without quitting meat cold turkey. It also is a good way to make a healthy compromise if you are not willing to go all the way to a vegan life style.
