Body image is a HUGE topic in today’s society and the vegan community is no exception. Many people go vegan in order to lose weight and look “better.”
You can find thousands of videos, books, and article on vegan weight loss, raw vegan weight loss, how to lose weight on a vegan diet, et cetera.
Health is certainly an excellent reason to go vegan, and a great benefit of veganism. However, most of us associate health with how attractive we perceive ourselves to be (i.e, how thin we are).
When we really look at the reasons to be vegan, though, just how important is how we look? How much does a suffering animal in need of liberation care about your love handles? Is the environment or the world’s hungry people helped by you loosing those last 3 pounds? Think about it ;)
