6 Pack Bags Diet Profile: Part Time Vegan
PART TIME VEGAN DIET QUICK HITSWhat it is: An easy transition into a full vegan diet or a chance to lessen how many animal products you eat. What you can eat: Meat alternatives, grains, nuts, vegetables and some meats. What can you drink: Milk alternatives, veggie/fruit juices and water. What you will see: An immune system boost, the decline of sluggish feelings and lower risks of hypertension, obesity and cancer. When it comes to food, a "part time" anything seems strange. However, part time vegan diets are becoming popular among health and fitness enthusiasts. Bulking up calls for a large amount of protein, and many people eat meat in order to repair and build muscle. However, large amounts of meat are not healthy for the body, and switching between a carnivorous diet and a vegan one for your meal management system can provide the balance your body needs.
Types of Part Time Vegan DietsIf you're just getting started with a part time vegan diet, foods like tofu, quinoa and beans are major dietary staples. These foods can replace meat in your meals while still allowing you to bulk up and meet your fitness goals. If you still feel the need to eat meat, don't feel bad, as many have a hard time committing fully to a vegan diet. There are several different classifications of semi-vegan diets. Pollotarians: Your diet includes chicken and other poultry, but never red meat. Pescetarians: Your diet includes fish and other types of seafood, but never poultry or red meat. Pollo-Pescetarians: Your diet includes fish and poultry, but never red meat. Fruitarians: Your diet avoids all processed foods and animal products. Semi-Vegan: A mix of meat, poultry, seafood and a straight vegan diet.
