Before you try the Vegan diet make sure you check with your doctor if it is the right thing for you. If you have diabetes, allergies to nuts, soy and wheat etc. you will have to take other supplements like vitamin B12. You may also have to get your vegetable proteins by other means like adding powder or tablet proteins from Costco or other stores.
Going Vegan does not require you to take any medication and supplements you will need will be readily available to you over the counter. Beware of protein products that are soldt over the counter as they may be harmfulto you or contain chemicals that require a prescription to obtain. When you need a prescription to use medication usually that means that the chemicals you are going to use could be harmful and therefore may only be prescribed to you by a doctor.
The Vegan diet on the other hand is solely comprised of natural elements. Whether you are eating vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts, eating deserts or drinking you need to make sure you are having all natural ingredients. If you are not eating natural ingredients coming from plant life then you are on a different diet. You also therefore cannot go around saying you are Vegan or on a Vegan diet.
The Vegan diet is not for everyone but it is well suited for people who farm their own land or who are full time home makers especially men.When you are constantly working on something like, driving, cooking, cleaning, doing laundry, in the yard, shopping, plumbing, fixing electrical issues and taking care of children, that leaves very little time to work out.
On any other diet when you are a full time home maker you will have to hit the gym or run around like crazy in your neighborhood to keep your fat levels low but not on a Vegan Diet. In fact the Vegan diet is the only diet that allows you to do virtually no exercise and look healthy as well as not feel tired all the time.
On a Vegan diet you can obtain the Patrick Swayze body type look quite easily. If on the other hand you want to look like Arnold Schwarzenegger than the Vegan diet will not be enough to supplement that kind of muscle structure. Having said that if you are a body builder or work a job that requires heavy lifting you will have to take supplements and perhaps even steroids to keep up that kind of body mass even on a meat diet.
Always remember to think things through before getting into something like a new diet. Make sure you know what you want and consult your doctor and people you trust before diving in.
