November 1st is the day every staunch vegan celebrates his or her peaceful and humane diet. It’s World Vegan Day. Yep, it’s a thing. So what does one do in order to qualify as a vegan? In addition to not eating meat, vegans also refrain from the consumption and use of animal products and their by-products like honey, dairy products, leather, fur, etc. Despite many people advocating otherwise, here’s why going vegan is a good choice.
Shed The Weight
It’s proven that, on an average, vegans are up to 10 kilos lighter than meat-eaters. A vegan diet is not only good for the waist but also keeps you energized round the clock.
For The Love of Animals
Going vegan or simply giving up meat saves up to more than 100 animals a year.
Yummy in Your Tummy
The fact that vegan food doesn’t taste good? Yeah, it’s a lie. With companies coming up with more and more meat and dairy alternatives, vegan food options are just about as infinite as any other menu in the market.
The Meat Industry is not environment friendly as it is wasteful and contributes in massive amounts to pollution leading to climate change.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics claims that vegans are less likely to develop heart disease, cancer, diabetes, or high blood pressure than meat-eaters are.
Heal The World
To yield meat not only are animals at the tip of the sword but also people and nature. It takes a massive amount of man power and natural resources to yield only a small quantity of edible meat.
It’s in Vogue!
The vegan list is a rather star studded one with celebs and health honchos like Mike Tyson, Tobey Maguire, Anne Hathaway, Shania Twain and many more giving up animal and their by-products.
