I have recently been pouring through a vast number of studies regarding the vegan diet. A few months of enjoying the diet has been most compelling. Strictly speaking I am not totally vegan since I will still, for example, ingest some honey once in a while. My diet consists primarily of plant based foods, no dairy, and no wheat. My journey began with a book, 10-day Green Smoothie Cleanse by JJ Smth, and lead to Dr Greger’s website, nutritionfacts.org.
Most of Dr. Greger’s videos on his website are only two or three minutes long and flipping through his alphabetized index on the homepage to find topics of interest has become an enjoyable and fascinating adventure. Doing the cleanse for 10 remarkable days and then continuing with an essentially vegan meal plan has been wonderful. If interested, you may want to watch the videos and give it a try.
As with most anything, the more you learn about it, the better, so please do your research if you are interested. Personally, I do not want to turn a diet plan into a religion so I am a tad flexible with the diet and am certain I have not had my last ice cream cone!
I understand that supplementing the meal plan with vitamins K2, D, and B12 is recommended for those who are strict with the life style.
