Vegan & Vegetarian Diet Support

A healthy gut is the foundation of good health. Our dietitians & nutritionists guide and support you, helping you manage digestive symptoms and reach optimal digestive wellbeing with ease.

Types of Plant-Based Diets

  • Vegetarian: A diet predominantly consisting of plant-based foods but may include dairy and eggs.

  • Vegan: A strict adherence to consuming only plant-derived foods, excluding all animal products.

  • Flexitarian: A flexible approach that primarily focuses on plant foods with occasional inclusion of meat.

  • Plant-Based: Emphasizing whole, plant foods, but unlike veganism, it doesn't necessarily exclude animal products.

How Our Dietitians Assist with Vegan & Vegetarian Eating

  • Nutrient Optimization: Ensuring your diet is well-rounded and nutritionally balanced.

  • Personalized Meal Plans: Customizing plant-based meal plans that cater to your unique needs and preferences.

  • Support and Education: Ongoing assistance and knowledge sharing to empower your plant-based journey.

Challenges with Plant-Based Diets

Adopting a plant-based diet brings numerous benefits yet also presents its own nutritional challenges. Ensuring adequate intake of certain nutrients is important for maintaining a balanced diet.

  • Ensuring Protein Intake: Adopting varied sources like legumes and tofu is crucial to meet protein needs on a plant-based diet.

  • Vitamin B12: Because B12 is mainly in meat, those on a plant-based diet often need fortified foods or supplements to maintain adequate levels.

  • Omega-3 Fats: With prominent sources like fish eliminated, plant-based alternatives or supplements become essential to ensure enough omega-3 intake.

  • Iron Levels: Ensuring sufficient iron from plant foods may require strategic combinations with vitamin C sources for enhanced absorption.
