The 1 Reason Your Vegan Diet Will Fail Every Time

While I am far from a textbook vegan, I have a lot of respect for the content of this article. And the over-arching theme here holds very true, no matter what modification you intend to make. Diets do not work. Lifestyle changes do. If you want to create lasting change, it must emanate from your core.

Veganism is everywhere.  It’s all over the news, grocery store aisles — even your friends and family are talking about it.  Whether people choose a plant-based diet to save animals, manage cholesterol, get in shape, save the environment, or just to know what they’re putting in their body, the word “vegan” is making the shift from marginal to mainstream.  But the one thing no one talks about is the #1 reason many vegan diets ultimately fail.  To find out whether you’re heading for a cliff, you’ll need to ask yourself a simple question, the answer to which can spell victory or defeat in your quest to go vegan.

First, you need to understand that veganism isn’t a diet — it is a lifestyle.  A diet is something you can go on and off for any given amount of time to achieve a short term result.  A lifestyle incorporates diet with…

  1. Wow, that was an intense video! I’m not sure what I was expecting but it sure wasn’t that haha! Anyways, I agree diets are a waste of time. If they do work, it’s almost always temporary and won’t last. Veganism is definitely a lifestyle change and it requires a lot of dedication to educating yourself about it. Most people won’t take the time to do that, they just want a quick fix which is why these fad diets are so popular. Instant gratification! I myself am not vegan but I believe it is one of the healthiest lifestyle choices, if it’s done correctly.

  2. An intense video indeed! Imagine how much more intense the video would be if it included graphic demonstrations of some of the examples he cites. Although I do not fully practice veganism either, I have avoided red meat and dairy consistently for the past two years. As a result, I feel much better (mentally and physically) and my health has vastly improved. I also very much agree with the phrase at the end of the video: “Compassion is not extremism…” He could very well be right! Perhaps years from now we will view the exploitation of animals like we currently do the human slave trade.

    Speaking of intense videos, check out this video that I posted today to Facebook/Twitter: http://www.facebook.com/truthology.net It is a person’s reaction to the movie EARTHLINGS, a film that I haven’t been able to bring myself to watch just yet. Someday, probaby when I am ready to be a full vegan, I will choose to watch.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and for leaving a comment!
