Looking for a definition of this way of living was really hard there are so many theories about it that are confusing. But finally, I found one that makes it justice: A plant-based diet is a diet based on foods derived from plants, including vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and fruits, but with few or no animal products.The use of the phrase has changed over time, and examples can be found of the phrase “plant-based diet” being used to refer to vegan diets, which contain no food from animal sources, to vegetarian diets which include eggs and dairy but no meat, and to diets with varying amounts of animal-based foods, such as semi-vegetarian diets which contain small amounts of meat.
Yes sounds like an accordion of possibilities but at the end depends on the person, the goals, and the lifestyle. The pure plant based was jus about greens, vegetables and literally ailments that grow on earth. But off course some bodies needs extra things to be able to survive and clearly is a lifestyle that is not suitable for everyone. There are so many factors involve that the personal one has to be well determined.
That kind of lifestyle is up to the person, nowadays we can find more people giving it a try. If you are interested we have a few recommendations for you before starting this journey.
