While most peo­ple choose to be­come ve­g­ans to pro­tect an­i­mals, there have also been in­stances of peo­ple con­vert­ing for health ben­e­fits. “It was dif­fi­cult ini­tially, but even­tu­ally, I gave up ev­ery­thing, from milk to ghee. Now I feel more en­er­getic and have also lost weight,” says Pushpa Soni, 58, house­wife.

Busi­ness­woman Tehseen Du­dani, 41, too, dropped 10kg soon af­ter she turned ve­gan. “I was shocked when I was di­ag­nosed with di­a­betes and thy­roid three years ago. In spite of be­ing a non-veg­e­tar­ian, I de­cided to take up the diet. It took three weeks to re­verse the di­a­betes,” says Du­dani, adding, “How­ever, not all ve­gan food is healthy. For in­stance, French fries are for ve­g­ans too.”
