Are you a healthy vegan?

Veganism is about the animals, however, there are other things that attract people to the movement. Regardless of your reason for being a vegan, unfortunately, veganism has a very high recidivism rate. This can get better if more of us learn how to follow a proper vegan diet. Are you a healthy vegan?

Great reads for those interested in starting a plant-based diet and how to be a healthy vegan


The China Study

Dr. T. Colin Campbell and his son, Thomas M. Campbell, review the relationship between diet and disease, giving life-saving nutritional information. Originally seeking to improve the quality of animal protein, with their research they actually found how animal protein is associated with chronic disease. This book reviews more nutrition than many doctors learn in four years of medical school. I recommend every vegan, as well as non-vegan, read it. After reading this you will be one step closer to being a healthy vegan.
This is not to say that vegans will not die, but Dr. Michael Greger, a family practitioner and founder of Nutritionfacts.org. With his clever and nerdy sense of humor, he goes over the biggest causes of death in the United States and how to reduce your risk of developing of dying from that condition or disease. This book is filled with references from important scientific studies (over 2000 resources included in this book) to support transitioning to a whole food, plant-based diet along with moderate exercise. Many can say that they became a healthy vegan thanks to Dr. Greger.
 
Jack Norris, a registered dietician in the United States and a Co-founder of Vegan Outreach, and Virginia Messina, who is also an RD who serves on the board of the Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine. They wrote this book together as a guide for new vegans to have a nutritionally complete diet and to help reduce the recidivism rate of veganism which is unfortunately relatively high. I recommend this book for anyone interested in the vegan lifestyle as well as people who have been vegans for years to get information on proper nutrition and how to stay vegan for life.

It is never too late to go vegan! This is a great book and recipe resource geared toward people over the age of 50 who are considering transitioning to a vegan diet. This will give you a better idea of how to be vegan in a non-vegan world. I bought this book for my dad and it has convinced him to transition to a plant-based diet. He has also had many benefits from his new diet, including no longer having to take his high blood pressure medication and weight loss, which has helped him ease his chronic back pain, and reduce joint pain while walking.
