Sure, you can, but do you know what to expect when you go on a strict vegan diet for 30 days in a row?
This video will tell you.
But first off, you should know that going vegan means no fish, no eggs, no meat, and no dairy.
Let me tell you, the first 30 days will be exciting, challenging, and maybe hell, especially if it’s your first time.
You’d also be going through various emotions like shock, delight, disappointment, surprise, and even frustration.
Will you be losing weight, or the other way around?
Know the answer to this by watching this video.
1. Weight loss, or maybe, gain
One of the major reasons why many people lose weight after transitioning to a fully plant-based diet is due to the lower calorie content of many plants compared to meat.
Another reason is that it’s not always easy to eat veggies, and at some point, it can even eliminate the need to mindlessly snack.
However, if you go for vegan junk foods, then you could end up gaining weight instead, so make sure to be mindful of what you eat.
2. Changing taste buds and cravings
According to those who are vegans, they notice a difference in their taste buds.
For instance, their sense of taste is enhanced, bringing more pleasure when eating.
Also, they have reported that it’s easier to curb or tame their sweet tooth cravings.
According to science, when you go a few weeks without junk foods and animal products, your taste buds’ sensitivity starts to change.
3. Vitamin imbalances
While a vegan diet brings many health benefits, there’s also potential harm, which is vitamin deficiencies, specifically in B12.
Another nutrient that may not be present in many veggies is Omega-3 fatty acids.
They do, however, can be found in walnuts and flax seeds.
See your doctor or a nutritionist and know if you need to take supplements to replace those missing nutrients from your vegan diet.
Typically, these nutrients are calcium, iron, and zinc.
4. More energy
Going vegan for a month is also said to increase a person’s energy levels.
This could be due to your overall healthier diet, even more so if your diet includes avoiding sugary treats and processed foods.
Foods like those can cause blood sugar spikes and crashes.
5. Glowing skin
Numerous vegans have reported that their diet did instant and amazing wonders on their complexion.
Being a vegetarian helped clear their skin, even for people who’ve had skin issues their whole lives.
6. Cooking transformations
When you only have veggies as your ingredients, you’re challenged into thinking how to make a meal.
While it may seem high-maintenance at first, once you get the hang of it, you’ll be surprised by how you can create vegan meals out of just a few ingredients.
Do some recipe research so you can learn about some go-to meals.
Just make sure you like them and they’re easy to make.
You can also refer to a vegan cookbook.
By the time you’ve ended your 30-day plan, your cooking skills have reached new heights.
