    I m a Lacto vegetarian…avoids all animal flesh and eggs but consume dairy products.
    Vegetarians vegans generally consume similar levels of most nutrients. However, poorly planned diets could result in low intakes of several nutrients.
    A vegan diet may be better than vegetarian diet for controlling weight and reducing the risk of certain diseases. However if not we’ll planned, a vegan diet is also more likely to cause nutrient deficiencies.

      I think that’s the key. If you ever change your diet – whether you go vegan, vegetarian or keto etc, it’s important to research and ensure you get the right nutrients.
      I think many people believe going vegan automatically makes you healthy when today there’s plenty of “bad” choices.
