Vegan Diet?
I've been reading/hearing a lot about vegan diets, but there doesn't seem to be a clear concensus on their benefits. Is vegan the best diet option for health and weight management?

It's a great question.  Most doctors generally believe that more plants, and less processed food will result in a healthier diet overall.  But we don't honestly know whether a plant-based, less processed diet with some meat is necessarily significantly different than a pure vegan diet.

I won't say that its the best diet but it is certainly better than other food options you have.
