Update: Four months of a plant based/vegan diet


A follow on from my initial video on why I first when vegan (here), in this video I basically go into what has change over the past 4 months since making the switch to a plant based diet and vegan lifestyle.

My main reason for switching to a plant based diet and vegan lifestyle was an experiment to see how my body reacted, but after making the switch the reasons changed and now I do it for my health, for ethical reasons, for the environment and for myself.

I’ve maintained all my muscle (have been eating at a calorie deficit to shred) and strength which is more than I can say for when I was a meat eater on a cut. I attribute this to the higher amounts of carbs and less protein intake. Carbs are used as a primary fuel source and better utilised for energy.

My bank account is thanking me as my weekly food bill is significantly lower. My hair and nails are growing like crazy. My skin is clear and I feel overall more healthy.

I feel better for the choices I am making and don’t see myself turning back to an omnivorous diet.

As mentioned in the video, if you are vegan – what did you notice changed for you? If you aren’t vegan why don’t you want to/haven’t you gone vegan? I’m interested to hear feedback from anyone.
