    In the recent years vegan diet has caught the attention of almost everyone. People have decided to go vegan for ethical, environmental or health reasons. A vegan diet contains only plants (such as vegetables, grains, nuts and fruits) and foods made from plants. When done right, such a diet may result in various health benefits, including a slimmer waistline and improved blood sugar control.


    There are different varieties of vegan diets. The most common include:

    Whole-food vegan: A diet based on a wide variety of whole plant foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts and seeds.

    Raw-food vegan: A vegan diet based on raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds or plant foods cooked at temperatures below 118°F (48°C) (1Trusted Source).

    80/10/10: The 80/10/10 diet is a raw-food vegan diet that limits fat-rich plants such as nuts and avocados and relies mainly on raw fruits and soft greens instead. Also referred to as the low-fat, raw-food vegan diet or fruitarian diet.

    The starch solution: A low-fat, high-carb vegan diet similar to the 80/10/10 but that focuses on cooked starches like potatoes, rice and corn instead of fruit.

    Junk-food vegan: A vegan diet lacking in whole plant foods that relies heavily on mock meats and cheeses, fries, vegan desserts and other heavily processed vegan foods.
