13 things to learn by  going vegan for a month

What is the experience of going vegan for a month?
This is a story of a young lady who started the quest to become vegan in 30 days. She thought this would be a good idea. She had lived before this challenge 22 years on meat and dairy products.

So this was a real life-changing experience. She discovered going vegan is not only about saving animals, but there are also many other things to consider and to learn: health, feelings and body awareness.

Many of you may have similar experiences.

Interesting Story About Going Vegan For A Month


One day (whilst procrastinating at work) reporter Laura Dennison thought: “Hey! It might be a really good idea to complete a 30-day vegan challenge with PETA UK and then write about it.”

Turns out it all worked pretty well for her, and this is why.

1. Veganism isn’t all about saving animals and patchwork cloth

My impression of veganism initially (as it probably is with most people) was that the sole reason for choosing to adopt a green diet would be for ethical reasons.

I hadn’t ever considered reasons such as health and the environment before.


 2. The vegan diet is far better for your health

You can’t help but eat more fruit and vegetables when you are vegan unless you are happy living off bread and water.


3. I lost weight with minimal effort

        And I lost weight without even trying.

I lost five pounds in a month, which is a lot considering I was eating three-course meals every other night at swanky, vegan restaurants.

A vegan diet leaves you less open to spontaneous binging. If vegan junk food isn’t immediately available, you simply don’t eat it.

4. There’s a really welcoming vegan community in London

I met some really lovely people during my month as a vegan. They were just so pleased that I was trying to contribute, if only in a very small way.

During the month I did not meet one “pushy” vegan.

5. A lot of people who work in catering don’t know what a vegan is

This happened to me in a few well-known restaurants throughout the 30 days.

6. Most food packaging doesn’t specify what is vegan

Food packaging, most of the time, only specifies if a food is vegetarian, not vegan.

If you want vegan options, you almost always have to research in advance.

7. It isn’t expensive

8. I’m less tired

9. My sweat smells less

10. Veganism is far easier than you think

11. My skin has improved a lot

12. The ‘protein’ argument is completely redundant

13. I suck at video diaries
