Side Effects of the Vegan and Vegetarian Diet
What are the possible side effects of a vegetarian or vegan diet?
Both Vegan and Vegetarian diets can be extremely healthy, and indeed many people embark upon the meat and/or dairy free lifestyles for this reason. Without proper care and attention however these diets can have severe unintended Side Effects.
Nearly all the side effects to do with these diets are formed around malnutrition for Vegetarians this tends to focus on proteins and iron deficiency. Vegans on the other hand suffer from Protein, Iron and Calcium deficiencies.
These are all easily avoidable by following some basic vegetarian and vegan diet advice. The important thing is to eat healthily, maintain a balanced diet and ensure the foods that you are eating encompass the full range of your bodies needs!
The best way to do this is to arm yourself with a wide range of vegan and vegetarian recipes which give you your daily required nutrition. This seems like a lot of extra work to begin with, but believe me pretty soon you will have some fantastic vegan and vegetarian recipes memorized!
The only other real side effect that comes from these diets is a slight build up of methane inside your body, so expect to feel a little more gassy (At both ends) once you take up the vegan or vegetarian diet!
