Side Effects or Physical Changes you May Experience when Switching to a Vegan or Plant Based Diet

When we talk about the basics regarding vegan diets and making the transition, it's important to talk about those first few days, weeks and months into going vegan. I know that I personally had so many questions regarding some of the physical symptoms I was experiencing when I went vegan, and this is completely understandable, as with any dietary change, we are bound to experience differences in the way we feel especially those first few weeks as a vegan.

Today I’ll be talking about the side effects we can experience when we first adopt a vegan diet.

By side effects I'm simply referring to those physical symptoms we might experience as part of the transition to a plant based diet. Feelings in our bodies and minds that will soon find their perfect peaceful place of equilibrium once we understand what could be behind them and what we can adjust until we feel comfortable. Making more vegan choices or going vegan is also all about the formation of so many new habits, often a huge change from the way we’ve eaten before, or the way our family members or friends eat. This means it can come with challenges as we get acquainted, which is why the mindset we have while making this change is so important, and I’ll share some thoughts in this regard as well, towards the end of episode.
