A Step-By-Step Guide [New Guide]
So, you’re thinking about going vegan… good for you!

With this in mind, I’ve curated the best content from all over the internet so you don’t have to keep endlessly searching for more information.
And I’ve include exclusive content that you won’t find anywhere else!
Let’s get started…
Going vegan - chapter 1
Why Go Vegan?
This chapter is all about teaching you the basics of veganism and why you might consider going vegan.
So if you’re new to the movement, then the resources below are a must-read.
They’ll help you get the basics down and build up a solid base before we dive into the specifics later on in the guide.
What Is a Vegan and Why Go vegan?
Let’s kick off this guide with the two basics questions:
#1: What is veganism?
#2: Why go vegan?
Making the connection:
You Will Never Look at Your Life in the Same Way
This is a must-watch and eye-opening speech by vegan animal rights activists – Ed Winters.
Ultimately, this speech answers the question, ‘Why go vegan.’
In fact, it has been given to thousands of students in universities across the UK and has now been viewed millions of times online!
Vegan vs Vegetarian:
Differences, Dangers and Advantages
Why go vegan? Why not vegetarian?
While you may think being a vegan and being a vegetarian are similar, they’re actually a world apart – from the ethics, to the environmental impact, and even the affects on personal health.
This article explains all!
The Ethical Vegan Versus a Plant-Based Diet: What is the Difference
As you start your journey towards going vegan, you will find the terms vegan and plant-based are often used interchangeably.
However, you should know that they mean very different things.
In fact, the reason why people go vegan is often not the same reason why people follow a plant-based diet…
Read this resource from Sentient Media to get up to speed on the lingo.
Is being vegan healthy or safe?
If you’re considering going vegan, then you may have also wondered if being vegan is healthy, or even safe.
Fortunately, science and the overwhelming majority of nutritional experts (not opinionated ‘influencers’) support a vegan lifestyle.
In fact, the American Dietetic Association is the largest group of nutritional experts in the world, with over 100,000 independent members. They state that:
“Appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases.
Well-planned vegetarian diets (including vegan diets) are appropriate for individuals during all stages of the life cycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, and adolescence, and for athletes.”
This position is echoed by the British Dietetic Association, “vegan diets can support healthy living in people of all ages.”
Dispelling The Biggest Myths
If you’ve Googled ‘veganism’ for more then 5 minutes than you’ve likely come across some of the myths that surround a vegan lifestyle, or even those that reject veganism and advocate for a 100% meat-based carnivore diet!
To combat these myths, Dr. Garth Davis takes the time to separate the fact from fiction in this short lecture.
Is Veganism A Solution to World Hunger?
As the global human population continues to grow, one of the pressing problems we face is how to produce exponentially more food from increasingly less land.
For many people, sustainability is part of the reason why they go vegan.
Mike looks at some of the well documented and major inefficiencies in the global food distribution that are by driven food choice, plus how to fix them (all sources included in the video notes.)

As you can imagine, heath and veganism is a big topic…
Which is why I created an in-depth resource just for that.
It includes the groundbreaking studies that have shaped the movement, how the animal agriculture industry manipulate studies, the most common preventable diet-related diseases and much more.
