ANS: Question: So Tired?

Well Erika,

When a person makes such a dramatic change in such a short time there will be needed adjustments. Give it some time for your body to adjust to a better diet. Of course you may not be getting everything that you need in your diet. All vegans need a B-12 supplement. Of course most "meat" eaters also need additional B-12. I strongly suggest a multi-vitamin for vegans and non-vegans.

The amount of sleep depends on each individual. Eight hours should be enough. What ever made you feel good before you became a vegan should be the same that you need now. BTW, Iron supplements are low priced so if you are worried about not getting enough than just buy some. Frankly I doubt that you have an iron deficiency. I just think that you need time for you body to adjust. Also you need to make sure you are eating a good vegan diet. A junk vegan diet is one of the worse diets that you can eat. On the other hand a good vegan diet is one of the best diet that you can eat. If you have more questions, please ask. We are here for you.

ANS: Question: So Tired?

A junk vegan is a vegan that eats a lot of junk food like potato chips, sodas, candy bars, and other things that are not nutritionally good. Just think of junk food that a flesh eater eats and that will give you an idea of what a junk vegan is. They do not eat flesh, dairy, or eggs but they also do not eat nutritionally good food.
