Why Vegan?
Vegan diets have become a new way of life. Not only for people protecting animals rights but for people wanting to feel better, know where their food comes from and protect the body from health complications that many people experience from a lack of vitamins and nutrition. Vegan diets help reduce saturated fats that are commonly found in dairy products, increase your fiber which helps with digestion, provides healthy and natural proteins as well as increase your bodies intake of antioxidants, magnesium, vitamin c and provide phytochemical, which interact with the vitamins to boost enzymes and prevent illnesses. My personal favorite reason why I love vegan diets is that I enjoy feeling the need for carbs and getting rid of that guilty feeling I have when I eat carbs. Carbohydrates are the main source of energy on a vegan diet. Your body will crave carbs but you will still be left with a clean, fresh feeling body after eating due to all the natural and toxin-free foods.

Why low carb?
Low carb diets result in weight loss, controlled cravings and more energy. Low carb diets are higher in healthy fats and lower in carbs. This includes carbs from grains, legumes, vegetables, and fruits. When we digest carbs, our blood sugar and insulin spike which put our bodies in danger for illnesses from way our bodies processes carbs, resulting in our cells absorbing glucose in the blood. Low carb diets also help to keep the body regulated and aid in weight loss. The body takes in more healthy fats, which leave us full and satisfied. The minimal carbs in addition to high fat and high protein, give us energy throughout the day and guess what? You won't feel as hungry either!
