HuffPo Names Top Diet Mistakes Vegans Make

The Huffington Post addresses common problems that new vegans encounter when transitioning to a plant-based diet.

Culture website The Huffington Post posted an article Friday naming the top five mishaps that vegans who are new to the plant-based game may fall victim to when adjusting to their revamped diet. Writer Amanda L. Chan consulted two nutrition experts—Amy Lanou, associate professor of health and wellness at the University of North Carolina Asheville and Los Angeles-based dietitian Vandana Sheth—to round up the “most common pitfalls,” which include undereating, omitting vitamin B12, overconsuming processed foods, limiting one’s range of foods, and ignoring bodily cravings. The experts also offer practical advice, such as to drink more water, focus on whole grains and vegetables, and consult with a doctor to customize a personal nutrition plan.
