The jury’s still out on the benefits of a meat free diet, but proponents claim it’s the ultimate diet to lose weight, clear up skin and improve energy levels. Just take it from journalist Chloe Randall:

‘Six years ago, I made the decision to go vegan. I was overweight, lacking in energy and fed up of endless fad diets and constant calorie counting. Rather than putting pressure on myself to cut out meat and dairy over night – I decided to see it as a lifestyle change and this meant a gradual transition.

‘Slowly but surely, I introduced small changes into my diet and immediately noticed the benefits. I lost weight, my skin cleared up, I had better sleep, sharper concentration and improved mood – but most importantly, I regained my love of food! Forget limited portion sizes, when you’re choosing to fill your body with nutrients you can eat abundantly and guilt-free!’

But if you can’t imagine a life without bacon, you can still reap many of the benefits of a vegan diet without forgoing meat forever. Simply make a few adjustments to your diet to cut down on animal products. And we’ve found the easiest swaps for to add to dip your toes into veganism.

‘If you’re thinking of embarking on a vegan lifestyle, or perhaps just want to introduce more healthy foods into your life – these simple swaps are a great place to start,’ says Chloe.
