Look great and feel better with veganism

Many people resolve to lose weight every new year, only to find themselves no thinner in July.

This can be very frustrating, but with simple exercise and healthier diet, you can look better on the outside and feel better on the inside.

Not only do vegan foods taste delicious, they're also cholesterol-free and most are low in saturated fat and calories too.

Studies have shown that vegans are nine times less likely to be obese than meat-eaters. They are also known to have lower rates of many life-threatening diseases, including heart disease, diabetes and certain cancers.

When you choose vegan foods, you also help spare animals a horrifying death at the abattoir, protect the environment and combat climate change.

To help people get started, Peta is offering free vegan starter kits - containing delicious recipes, tips on eating out and more - that will make the transition a cinch.
