Vegans are individuals who do not eat meat or any animal products at all. If you are a vegetarian contemplating becoming a vegan, don't dive in too fast. Make the transitions slowly so your body can adjust accordingly. Want to know a great hint to help you make the adjustment? Start by omitting dairy from your diet completely…ALL DAIRY.
If you are attached to the taste, find tasty dairy substitutes (rice milk, soy milk, etc.) at any grocery store. After spending about a week without dairy you'll probably find that you don't even miss it. After practicing veganism your taste buds will start to change. At this point, you will likely find that using non-dairy substitutes instead of real dairy products will be more than satisfying.
I THINK THAT'S GREAT ADVICE- I MYSELF AMIN THE PROCESS OF ADAPTING TO LIFE WITHOUT DAIRY... THIS WAS VERY HELPFUL!
dont dive in too fast, but eliminate all dairy at once? kind of contradictory.
instead, try slowly replacing your dairy items with substitutes; soy cheese, tofu scramble instead of eggs, soy/rice milk. eventually, you won't notice the difference.
