I 100% want to go vegan for the animals and environment, nothing to do with health benefits (actually the thought of eating less protein is worrying to me). .I have an ED (long term, 10+ years) and have a seriously restricted diet already, fear of fats, grains and fruits. If I go vegan, that pretty much limits me to vegetables, potatoes and legumes. My parents think veganism is just another way of restricting. What do you suggest? Can I be healthy just eating veg, potatoes and legumes?
A plant based diet is rich in protein! Of course I recommend anyone and everyone to go vegan and eat plant based. I also recommend expanding what you eat and eating a variety of foods. Plant food is fuel and not there to harm your body of make you fat! It’s there to nourish!
