4 Ways A Vegan Diet Can Fail

When transitioning to a vegan diet, most people have little to no support or guidance on how to live a healthy lifestyle. Upon transitioning, many people try to replace animal food with plant-based fake meats and other foods of similar taste to what they were eating before going vegan. Sometimes this slower transition is needed in order to get over the hump to the new animal-free diet.

However, I warn against staying in that transition phase too long. If you’re looking to balance your hormones, lose weight, and heal your thyroid condition, you want to move in to an energetic, vibrant and health-promoting way of eating with whole plant and raw foods. Karen explains the main four ways that vegan diets can fail, but why you should keep going with vegan and make the switch to healthier foods.

    I have some support from mainly my family on a vegan meal plan but it’s just that I was too scared to eat in front of people cause they’ll likely to judge me. I just eat alone for years.

      It’s not a good thing to always be alone. You could eat alone but be sure to do
      activities with others that don’t have to do with food. Even though I eat raw vegan,
      I’m happy to join in on a get together and bring my own food.

        What a wonderful suggestion! This is so important as sometimes people who are health conscious raw vegans separate themselves too much from others, and we know that this is not healthy either. Social interaction can take place in so many other activities besides eating.
