So you're interested in eating only plants, eh?

Well, you've come to the right place to learn all about it. I've seen many people over the years have success with a Plant-Based Diet.

Truth be told though, I've seen many people also struggle with it too.

(After all, donuts are "plant-based" and pizza just got declared "a vegetable").

There is definitely a right way and a wrong way to embark on eliminating animal products from your diet.

Today, I'll share with you how to safely and correctly follow a plant-based menu and still hit your goals.

Now, although I've been running this site for 10 years, I may be drawing a large target on my back by diving headfirst into a topic I've thus far avoided.

As a blogger, if you want to tenfold your hate mail, take a stance on a Plant-Based Diet.

And saying ANYTHING about veganism – for OR against – is an easy way to get virtual produce tossed at you.

Although most people discover Nerd Fitness through our guides on Paleo or Keto, we get SO many questions on how to eat a Plant-Based Diet that I figured I'd give my two cents.

With pop stars and famous directors advising folks to try veganism, these inquiries are only going to increase.[1]

So today, we are going to talk about how to eat a Plant-Based Diet safely.

The right way, and the wrong way, to go vegan or vegetarian.

BIG ASS CAVEAT: I'm not going to try to convince you to give up meat. If you're reading this, I'll assume you're here because you're interested in doing so, and want to know the best path through it.

The politics, controversy (yes, I've read the China Study[2]), and geopolitical impact of veganism are beyond the scope of this article. I'm just a nerd who studies the hell outta health and wellness and sometimes wears pants.[3]

So setting all the controversy aside, I want to explore the science and the "how to" for people who are heading down this path.

  • If you are going to eat a plant-based or vegan diet, what's the best way to do it?
  • What are tips and tricks to make it sustainable?
  • Is it as easy as "stop eating meat?"
  • Is there any unsafe way to eat only plants?

Let's goooooo!
