STEP 2: SUPPLEMENTS

Some essential nutrients are more easily found in meat products. Therefore, it is important that you figure out which nutrients you are lacking and find a good supplement to replace it.


The most important one you should be taking is a B12 supplement as B12 is only found in animal sources. Depending on the individual, you may need to supplement iron, as plant-based sources are low in heme-iron, zinc which is bound to phytic acid in plant foods, vitamin D and omega-3 as plant foods contain ALA that needs to be converted to EPA/DHA that is found in foods from animals. If your diet is not planned well you could miss out on essential nutrients and eventually fall sick so it is important you take care of your body and get enough iron, calcium, and B12. I recommend seeing a nutritionist and getting blood work done to see what is needed for your body.
