Since last week i have always been a meat eater as that was how i was raised, i lacked knowledge and understanding and never gave it a second thought until it really started to dawn on me how cruel it truly is. So after a couple months thought on the matter i decided to fully pledge and become a vegan. I have now been animal product free for a week and couldn't be happier. I'm trying to learn all i can about vegan foods as its all so new to me, i know vegan foods can help with weight loss and being about 5 stone overweight, i want to use this change positively and get in the best shape i can be. So my questions are: What vegan foods can truly get me in shape? What ones are deceiving and should be avoided? What products should i incorporate to keep my vitamin levels healthy? And i have been told to avoid soy products due to cancer causing ingredients, is there any other products which can cause cancer or other problems? Last question, is juicing bad? If so why?
