I left veganism 2 years ago and have never once regretted my decision. In this show I share my top concerns with eating a vegan diet and why I believe it to be detrimental to recovering from an eating disorder, amenorrhea, and/or a slow metabolism.
Things I went over in this podcast;
*The fall of vegan influencers
*Listening to all the vegan podcasts, reading vegan books, researching vegan articles and doing all the “right things”
*Finding restriction through the vegan diet in a socially acceptable way
*Doing all the “right” things but experiencing awful health
*Fear of admitting I was wrong
*Too much fiber? I thought that was good for you??
*Bioavailability of nutrients found in food. Plant vs animal, is it the same?
*The main nutritional pitfalls of a vegan diet, should you be concerned that these vitamins are not readily available in plant foods?
*My main reasons as to why I chose to leave veganism
I hope that to all you vegan eaters out there that you listen with open ears. I know this is a touchy subject but I think it is of utmost importance that you learn as much as you can and understand all the risks before you embark on a dietary experiment like veganism.
