What is the vegan diet or vegetarian diet?

The vegetarian or vegan diet is a diet that comes from the vegan lifestyle and its purpose is to save animals that deeply suffers from the cruelty of the food industry for the sake of increasing profit.

It is important to remind that there are different vegetarian diets and not all of them are truly vegan, but these diets can be used as a smooth transition from the non vegan to the vegan world.

Read our post about the 4 types of vegetarian diets to better understand about this, including how to use those diets as a smooth transition and many tips to let your journey to vegan be soft and lasting.

For this post, when we say vegan diet, we are referring to the strict vegetarian diet in which there is no animal based products consumption and no animal derivatives, such as eggs and milk, for example.

Be careful: vegan is not just a diet

One of the most common mistakes after going vegan is to believe that it is all about the diet. Vegan lifestyle contains a wide set of changes we tend to do in the way we behave, including our diet. But it also affects the environment, the world, the animal lives and peoples lives. So the diet is a vital part, but not the only piece of it.

Once we adopt the belief that vegan is just a diet, we tend to avoid dozens of actions that we could take to make the world a better place for everyone. One good example about it is to change our health and beauty products from animal based to vegan based and avoid those that applies animal suffering in its fabrication process.

Besides that, we tend to push ourselves too hard because the vegan diet is to most difficult part of the lifestyle and so its easier to get frustrated and quit the diet. It is so much easier to stick to the vegan diet once we understand that we are making the difference already and it is okay to fail sometimes.

Exercise your thoughts to keep the vegetarian diet

As I said before, it is easier to keep a diet once we understand that we are making the difference within other actions already. One important thing to note is that habits changes usually takes 1 up to 3 months to consolidate in our brains.

A good way to exercise our mind is to keep studying about vegan lifestyle, watching documentaries about the vegan world, get involved with the vegan cause and understand the real meaning of becoming vegan.
