I always feel full while eating while vegan foods, and I manage my weight. I can eat, and eat, and eat, while managing a healthy fit body.

5. Better attitude
I have a more positive outlook on things and I don’t feel depressed all the time, and I feel way less stressed. Believe it or not, diet can really affect your attitude.
