Vegan: How to Get Started Living the Lifestyle

Hello there and welcome to VeganHowTo! I decided to “sticky” this post to point you to some of the most helpful blog posts here. It’s my goal to help you begin the vegan lifestyle with ease. It’s a great way to live your life.

First, let’s start with the 4 blog posts you should read as someone new to this lifestyle. These posts will give you a great foundation, correct some common myths, and help you grow mentally, physically, and spiritually along the way:

What is a Vegan Diet?

It’s important to have a solid understanding of what the vegan diet is. There are a lot of misconceptions out there…ones that can do you harm. Being vegan isn’t about depriving yourself or doing something ‘alternative’– it’s about living the truth of the way humans are meant to eat. We are meant to eat a plant based lifestyle. Study after study shows that this is the path to lifelong health and happiness. Yet, so few people life this way. It’s sad to go into our malls and see how many obese people there are. We live in a land full of too much meat and processed foods. If you’re going to succeed as a vegan, you have to turn away from all of that. Living the truth of being vegan and staying motivated will carry you through. Please read this blog post for a more in depth understanding of this topic.

Will Being Vegan Help You Lose Weight?

I’ve noticed that many people who visit this blog find it because they were desperate to see if veganism is a valid way to lose weight. Some people, unfortunately, look at this as a fad diet. They see it as something to try out, but drop it like a hot potato the minute a hot, new fad diet comes into play. If you want to lose weight as a vegan, that can’t be your main goal. That might sound counterintuitive, but it’s absolutely true. Veganism is the path to health. You will, by nature of the foods you’ll eat as a vegan, lose weight. You’ll be dropping meat and horribly, processed foods. You’ll look at feel great! But, your motivation has to go beyond that. Read this post to discover more.

Sample Vegan Diet Options

It can seem very overwhelming after you’ve committed to this lifestyle. After all, you’ve eaten a certain way for your entire life. How are you going to change that now? Are you motivated enough to change that now? The first thing you need to do is reaffirm your commitment to being vegan. You need to examine how the upswing in health, happiness, and fitness will affect your family. Then, you need to get rid of all temptation. Clean out your cupboards and shop the perimeter of the grocery store so you’re not tempted to buy unhealthy processed foods. Avoid the meat isle (although, I don’t know anyone who likes the look of raw meat! In that case, visit it all you want…). In this post, I give you a sample vegan diet and point you to resources where you can stock yourself up on powerful vegan foods that will never leave you feeling deprived.

7 Best Resources on Becoming Vegan

When I first started researching veganism, it really helped me to turn to established vegan blogs and websites. There is something really inspiring about seeing someone’s health results, recipes, ups and downs, and more. So while it might seem strange that I’m pointing you to other websites, it’s because I’ve got your best interests at heart! I’ve hand-picked 7 vegan blogs I think are absolutely fantastic. They share some things in common, but are unique and helpful enough that I couldn’t help but include them all. Do yourself a favor– after you’ve bookmarked VeganHoTo, head on over to these sites to bookmark them as well. Add them to your RSS reader. You’ll constantly receive new tips, recipes, and points of inspiration. You’ll never feel alone on your journey to live a healthier life.

This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to fantastic blog posts at VeganHowTo. Browse through the categories, check out the resources, and most importantly, have fun! I’m extremely excited that you are starting this journey.
