Going Vegan isn't S.A.D.

The True Vegan Diet Brings Only Wellness and Vitality. 

A lot of people think that going Vegan represents giving up things. Which makes them sad about the whole experience from the start. Begin with a negative attitude, end with one. But that's not the kind of S.A.D. I'm talking about. Although, Veganism certainly isn't that kind of sad, either. What I'm talking about here, folks is the S.A.D. diet. That is, the Standard American Diet.

Many of my friends have confided in me that they've tried going Vegan and ended up sick from it. But here's the deal. They may have given up animal products, but they didn't really go vegan.

There are a lot of self proclaimed vegans who eat a modified S.A.D. diet. In other words, they're not really on a vegan diet and may as well have not bothered.

Why do I say that? Because going vegan involves a whole new way of eating. It's not just the old S.A.D. diet minus the animal products. It's a balanced nutritional plan that insures you have everything you need to retain and enhance good health.

And you can't possibly get sick from eating everything your body needs.

Eating a true, balanced, healthy vegan diet does not make you sick. Ever. In fact, it should have the opposite effect. If it makes you sick, chances are, you're doing it wrong. Just like doing any diet wrong will make you sick.

For example, it's not enough to sub bean burgers for meat burgers and still chow down on greasy fries. Not all food that's vegan is good for you, just as not all omnivore food is good for you. If you're not going to eat healthy food, you might as well just continue with the S.A.D.

A vegan diet isn't sad in any way. It's not about restrictions, either. It's about eating healthy, delicious, filling, plant based, nutrient dense food that contains everything you need for optimal nutrition without exploiting other beings. It's about doing no harm, either to yourself or others. It's a celebration of enriched life, good health and wellness.

Vegan is the exact opposite of the S.A.D., not a modification of it.

If going vegan makes you sick, you're doing it wrong.
