Hardly a day goes by without hearing the word vegan. Of course, veganism can mean different things to different people. For some it can mean complete abstinence from dairy, meat and animal products, for others it also includes a philosophy that rejects the commodity status of animals. There are many different reasons that people have for following a vegan lifestyle, from ethics, to environmental or dietary reasons. Many people find their own reasons fall into several categories and form their own stance on veganism.
The team at Diabetes Digital Media, home to the award-winning Low Carb Program, wanted to show how a low carb lifestyle can be adapted to meet the needs of someone who lives a vegan lifestyle. The aim of this challenge is to document my experiences incorporating vegan dietary principles into my low carb lifestyle.
