Switching to a Plant-Based Diet
You’ve decided to go plant-based — great! There are many reasons a person may decide to make this kind of lifestyle change, but the reason is not nearly as important as what comes next. If you’re cutting out animal food products, you need to make sure that you’re getting the proper nutrients, such as quality protein, vitamin B12, iron, iodine, and omega-3 fatty acids.
In fact, anyone making drastic dietary changes should consult a dietitian to ensure that they’re feeding their bodies sufficient amounts of every essential vitamin, mineral, and nutrients for optimal health.
