Why is veganism not a diet?
Veganism is a lifestyle based on ethics and the belief that animals should not be harmed or exploited by humans. When vegans don’t eat animal products, it’s not because they’re on a diet.
Is vegan the healthiest diet?
Yes, the vegan diet is good for you. There’s pretty strong consensus that it’s one of the best diets, right up there with the Mediterranean diet, the traditional Okinawan diet and the rest of the “Blue Zone” all-stars (which all include animal products).
Do vegans lose weight?
Generally speaking, vegan diets are associated with a lower calorie intake than other forms of plant-based diets, resulting in more significant weight loss. Lower calorie intake is attributed to plant-based diets with higher fiber content, greater food volume, and lower energy density.
