If you have made the decision to transition to vegan diet plans, and are clueless as to how to progress then worry not; you are not alone! “Going vegan” has become the new motto for millions over the world, and it would be an understatement to say that it isn’t the buzzword nowadays. You may be scratching your heads, as for the past decades you have been experiencing a meat-based diet, and transitioning may come as a shock to you. The question that many ask is, should they go vegan quick and sudden, or should they gradually lean off of animal-based products. It is a very valid question as far as I’m concerned. So let us get to the bottom of this…
What Is Your Drive?
What exactly is your drive to go vegan? What is your motivation? Are you trying to lose weight? Are you curious as to how the vegan lifestyle is? Do you want to protect animals and the environment? Are you looking for a cleaner way of healthy eating? Ask yourself these questions and do a bit of soul-searching, and find the answers to the questions.
Is This For A Short Or Long-Term?
What is your goal? Motivation is what you want, and the goal is the final picture of how you want it. Your goals are measurable and are driven by short-term tasks. When you slowly inch with short-term tasks, you make your goal a reality. If your goal is to see how going vegan is going to be for 3 weeks or say 30 days, just for the heck of it, then it makes sense to go all out and cut off animal products completely. On the other hand, if you are aiming for a long-term goal of cutting off animal products from your life completely; then taking it one step at a time and transitioning slowly would be wiser.
What Is Your Budget?
Going vegan is not cheap. Fruits and veggies are more expensive than fast foods. However, if you don’t have the leeway of disposing of processed foods that you have on you, then using them up would be wise. Once the pasta, snacks, cereal, condiments all run out, you can switch to more vegan options. As you start to run out of supply, start by prepping your vegan meal in advance. Start by detailing a shopping list for the meals that you will be preparing this week, and what are the raw ingredients that you will need.
