Vegan health maintenance

Staying topped up

Keeping up any kind of diet is harder than committing to it, but by far the most important thing is to stay healthy throughout the process. Vegan diets can be healthy, but vegans can also be susceptible to deficiencies in certain nutrients.

Here, you can read up on ways to get enough calcium and omega-3 fatty acids from a vegan diet, while Healthspan Head of Nutrition Rob Hobson gives advice on high-protein vegetarian foods to use instead of meat. We've answered the most frequently asked questions in a bid to keep your vegan or vegetarian journey running smoothly.

Just because you're vegan doesn't mean you don’t need to worry about your health. In fact, not eating meat and dairy can have an impact on calcium, iron and vitamin B12 levels in the body. Also, make sure you avoid pitfalls like surviving on vegan junk food and find joy in cooking healthy vegan food that tastes good!
