Vegan diet mistakes are something that many people make when eating whole foods, vegan and raw food diets.
I have been eating a fruit-based, high raw vegan diet for about 9 years now.
Even though I have been eating what is a very healthy diet and which has given me so many great health benefits, I still made lots of vegan diet mistakes that you can and need to avoid, and I’ve also learnt many lessons that can help you.
These popular vegan diet mistakes can compromise your healing and restoration on this lifestyle.
I talk about it in my video today.
Vegan diet mistakes
The first mistake many people make is not having the right mindset and it is one of the biggest things that will contribute to your success or lack of it on this lifestyle.
You will always face challenges in life and the same goes for this lifestyle as well.
But with the right mindset you see these challenges as opportunities to learn and grow rather than barriers to your progress.
Not getting enough calories on a vegan diet/raw food lifestyle are another very easy mistake to make.
As human beings, we are wired to eat calorie dense foods and you have to be aware of this on this lifestyle.
Whole plant foods, and especially raw foods are typically less dense in calories, so you have to eat more volume of food.
The next vegan diet mistake was not adapting this lifestyle to my own specific health needs.
When I came to raw foods, I had many health issues, from chronic fatigue and Candida through to hormonal imbalances and hypothyroidism.
I also discovered that I had Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, which is an autoimmune condition.
Although I’ve lowered my medication after switching to this diet and improved my condition a lot, 3 years into a fully raw vegan diet, my anti-bodies were still high.
Diet itself is a huge component of healing Hashimoto’s or other autoimmune conditions and hormonal imbalances, however there can be other causes of these conditions as well that need to be addressed, such as heavy metals, parasites and other gut issues.
So if you’re not seeing an improvement in your condition within 3 months of changing your diet and lifestyle, there may well be other root causes that you need to address.
I talk about these and other vegan diet mistakes in my video above, so check it out!
