Dr. Rao of Diet Doc Believes That Vegan Dieting Could Result in Damaging Nutritional Deficiencies Despite Benefits

HONOLULU, HI--(Marketwired - October 09, 2016) - Going on a vegan diet means to exclude all animal products such meat, dairy and eggs and replacing them with a diet that is mainly fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and legumes. Research shows that those on vegan diets tend to lose weight due to the fact that they are generally eating fewer calories than the average American. Vegan diets also tend to be high in fiber, and as a result are feeling fuller and more satiated even though they are consuming fewer calories. Properly planned vegan diets are also linked to lowered instances of diabetes and hypertension.

Though vegan diets offer many benefits, individuals need to be aware of the nutritional deficiencies that may occur while on such diets. Vegans may need to take additional supplements such as calcium, B12, iron and protein. Not receiving an adequate amount of calcium for example can negatively impact metabolic function and hinder weight loss. Dr. Rao, Medical Director of Diet Doc states that, "Many individuals remain unaware of their nutritional deficiencies, particularly with regards to their lack of calcium or vitamin D until certain health conditions such as osteoporosis begins to develop." Many vegan dieters fail to consult specialists who can assess their body's current needs as well as review their medical histories, which can result in dietary imbalances and symptoms such as fatigue, changes in mood, problems with focus and concentration as well as excessive hunger. Dr. Rao believes that, "All nutritional needs should be evaluated by a medical professional before embarking on a vegan diet to achieve weight loss without health-related consequences."
