A vegan diet is often confused with being vegetarian, but vegans have a much more limited diet compared to vegetarians. A vegan diet is based on plants as the only food source, whereas vegetarians may avoid meat but still eat dairy products and eggs. The primary concern with a vegan diet is that your body still needs protein, carbohydrates and fats, so you need to learn to be creative with your food choices.
Dr. Ambrozic and his staff specialize in vegan diets, and they will help you learn about the nutritional requirements, health benefits and methods for obtaining the nutrients that are needed for your body.
Benefits of Vegan Diet
People decide to follow a vegan diet for many reasons. The most common is primarily ethical in that the consumption of animal products goes against their personal beliefs. Other people may choose a vegan diet as a way to address food sensitivities and digestive problems.
How Vegan Diet Works
Several types of vegan diets are available for those who wish to change their eating habits.
- Raw vegan foods for most of the day followed by cooked plant-based foods
- A diet of whole grains, fruits, seeds, vegetables and nuts
- Replacing fruits with foods high in carbohydrates, such as corn, potatoes and rice
- Foods produced from plants that “mock” non-vegan options, such as cheese, desserts and meats
- Limited foods with high-fat content, such as avocado, and higher amounts of greens and fruit
Dr. Ambrozic will help you find the type of vegan diet that fits your lifestyle and nutritional needs.
