Some people hesitate to pursue a vegan diet because they fear not getting adequate amounts of protein. This, however, should not be the case as beans, nuts, seeds, quinoa, edamame, and peas all provide sufficient amounts when consumed as part of a balanced vegan diet. As a nutrition graduate student at Tufts University, I recently completed a course called Nutritional Biochemistry: Micronutrients. In this class, we rigorously analyzed the metabolism of vitamins and minerals and their requirement for the functioning of the human body. Along the way, I discovered that despite popular opinion, a more pertinent concern for vegans revolves around micronutrients rather than protein. Using personalized blood analysis from InsideTracker, I monitored three key biomarkers — iron, calcium, and vitamin B12 — micronutrients difficult to obtain from a plant-based diet, and three measures of metabolism and weight control — glucose, cholesterol and triglycerides. Since I was testing a vegan diet, I relied only on plant-based sources of iron. Fortify your body with vitamin B Some animals, cows for example, produce B12 from bacteria in their intestines, which then passes into their byproducts eggs, milk, cheese, etc. Although still in the optimized zone, my levels decreased after two months.

Vegetarian diets have been shown to improve insulin resistance and reduce body weight, but the effects on nonalcoholic fatty liver require further confirmation. We aim to investigate the association between vegetarian diets, major food groups, and nonalcoholic fatty liver, and to compare the degree of liver fibrosis between vegetarians and nonvegetarians in those with fatty liver. We analyzed cross-sectional data from the Tzu Chi Health Study which included nonvegetarians and vegetarians who did not smoke or habitually drink alcohol and had no hepatitis B or hepatitis C. Fatty liver and liver fibrosis were determined using ultrasonography and the nonalcoholic fatty liver disease fibrosis score, respectively. Diet was assessed through a validated food frequency questionnaire. Adjustment for body mass index BMI attenuated the protective association. Vegetarians had less severe fibrosis than nonvegetarians.
