Physical Benefits of Going VeganIn addition to good nutrition and disease prevention, eating vegan also provides many physical benefits. Find out how a vegan diet makes your body stronger, more attractive, and more energetic.

  1. Body Mass Index. Several population studies show that a diet without meat leads to lower BMIs–usually an indicator of a healthy weight and lack of fat on the body.
  2. Weight loss. A healthy weight loss is a typical result of a smart vegan diet. Eating vegan eliminates most of the unhealthy foods that tend to cause weight issues.
  3. Energy. When following a healthy vegan diet, you will find your energy is much higher. This blog post in Happy Healthy Long Life describes how NFL tight-end Tony Gonzalez started eating vegan and gained energy–while playing football.
  4. Healthy skin. The nuts and vitamins A and E from vegetables play a big role in healthy skin, so vegans will usually have good skin health. Many people who switch to a vegan diet will notice a remarkable reduction in blemishes as well.
  5. Longer life. Several studies indicate that those following a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle live an average of three to six years longer than those who do not.
  6. Body odor. Eliminating dairy and red meat from the diet significantly reduces body odor. Going vegan means smelling better.

  4. for the first comment thats not true these are all benifits from going vegan not to say you cannont have these qualities on a non-vegan diet, some people are just naturally thin, clear skinned, and energetic. These benifits are aimed more to help people who struggle with weight loss or skin problems and is likely to be a good long term solution. Vegan isn't for everybody but it is a healthy lifestyle.

  5. I can tell you that I've lost weight and fat since I become vegetarian and then vegan.
    I didn't know about the allergies but it is true that some of my allergies have disappeared too !
