VEGAN NUTRITION COACHING
Keith Stickel, MS, CISSN, CSCS
Do you follow or would like to follow a vegan, vegetarian, or plant-based lifestyle? According to the American Dietetics Association, “appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases”. The keywords in this statement are “well planned”.
At 3S Nutrition, a vegan nutrition coach helps you navigate some of the potential challenges associated with a vegan, vegetarian, or plant-based diet in 3 ways:
- Sustainability – Are you confident you can stick to this approach for the long term? This means restricting most, if not all, animal foods. Is this realistically feasible for you?
- Protein – A focus on eating a variety of vegan or plant-based food sources is crucial to meeting your daily protein needs, while not exceeding your daily calorie balance. This entails identifying the proper foods that contain all essential amino acids, but also ensuring that you enjoy eating those foods
- Vitamins/Minerals – There are certain vitamins and minerals that are only found in animal foods and are found in plant-based or vegan foods. We help you understand what these nutrients are and address ways to avoid deficiency in them.
