Veganuary is a pledge to try a vegan lifestyle for the month of January and then throughout the rest of the year. Well over 100,000 people made the pledge, with thousands continuing to join the challenge. If you have been toying with the idea of giving the plant-based lifestyle a try, this may be just the challenge you need to make some awesome dietary changes! Below are my top 3 reasons to join the Veganuary movement:
You will have more energy! Almost everyone who I have coached and starts a healthy vegan diet reports that they have more energy, feel lighter and have more clarity in their thinking. These benefits are usually apparent with the first 2 weeks for most.
You will eat more fruits and vegetables which will inevitably improve your health. One of the benefits of a healthy vegan diet is that most people start consuming lots more fruit, veggies, and fiber. These foods are full of antioxidants, nutrients, energizing and healing properties. Not only do most people naturally lose weight on a plant-based diet, there are numerous other health benefits such as reduced risk of cancer, diabetes and heart disease, to name just a few.
You will be helping the planet and the animals. Your environmental footprint reduces by more than 50% when you switch to a vegan lifestyle! You also conserve water (enormous amount of water is necessary for meat/diary production) and you save animal habitats (less land is needed to grow food for humans than is needed to feed and raise farm animals). Another important benefit of veganism is that you reduce harm to animals that suffer greatly in the production of meat and dairy products.
