Nutritional Advice For Vegan Diets

Are you following a vegan diet but concerned that you are not getting enough nutrients for optimal health? Or perhaps you have recently become educated about a vegan diet and are curious to find out how you can adopt it as a lifestyle?

What is a vegan? A vegan is someone who for ethical, health or other reasons does not consume any products from animal sources including eggs, milk, honey etc.

There is an ever increasing trend of people adopting vegan diets. The benefits of a vegan diet include achieving a healthy weight, low cholesterol, blood pressure & blood glucose levels, as well as improving overall health.

Research is showing that a vegan diet can be an extremely healthy diet and lifestyle choice if followed in a nutritionally balanced way. Unfortunately, many people are cutting out foods from animal origin and are not replacing the nutrients with other food sources. This can be dangerous long-term and can result in malnutrition and nutritional deficiencies.

Some common nutrients which can be lacking in a vegan diet include:

  • Calcium
  • Protein
  • Omega 3
  • Iron
  • B12

Consult with one of our expert registered Dietitians to learn how you can adopt a nutritionally balanced vegan diet and achieve your health goals.

 Consultations can cover:

  • Vegan pregnancy
  • Vegan sports nutrition diet
  • Disease prevention with a vegan diet
  • Weight gain with a vegan diet

And more...
