  • 1. Veganism, called by some as strict vegetarianism is the lifestyle practise of consuming only plant- based foods like vegetarian cooking video and excluding any form of animal products and by products. These include eggs and dairy products like milk, cheese, cream and yoghurt. A diet is defined as the intentional reduction of the amount of variety of food and chefsrecipes for the purpose of controlling one’s weight or to address health concerns. Even though in a general sense, veganism can be classified into diet, thosewho embrace this lifestyle wouldn’t want to call it that simply because it is a lifetimelifestyle choice they wish to have and not only for a specific amount of time which iswhat diets usually are. Unlike most people merely concerned with their weight and use calories as ameasure of what they consume, vegans are much more concerned with thenutrients they assimilate from plant-based foods which are generally classified intothe fruits, vegetables, grains, seeds and nut. Consuming these in the right quantitiesprovides adequate nutrients in a smaller number of calories. However, care must be taken because too much fruit and starchy food suchas grains and its derivatives like bread and pasta may lead to increased blood sugarlevels that can lead to or aggravate diabetes. Too much fats, though healthy andcholesterol-free, can still lead to weight gain if not taken with other food groups likegreen leafy vegetables and high-fiber food. Carbohydrate and protein contain four calories per gram while fat has ninecalories per gram. Alcohol has seven calories per gram and is not very high innutrients. As such, calories from a green salad or a fresh fruit smoothie with nut orsoymilk is better at providing energy than a bag of potato chips and a diet sodawhich virtually do not contain any form of nutrients. Whether vegan or otherwise, careful consideration of what one puts into his orher body has a long standing benefit to one’s wellbeing. Those who are considering to convert to a vegan lifestyle are recommendedto consult with their doctor, nutritionist or wellness advocate who can recommend aprogramme that provides a smooth transition so that there isn’t much shock to thesystem. Even for vegetarians who progress to veganism, withdrawal symptoms canbe expected – acnes, fatigue, grumpiness but after the initial speedbump, thejourney can be very satisfying. Vegans claim they experience clarity of thought,more sustained energy, require less sleep.
