The first thing that someone starting a vegan diet might notice is an energy boost with the removal of the processed meat that is found in many omnivorous diets.
SOPHIE MEDLIN: ‘A 2016 Roy Morgan poll found 2.1 million Australians (11.2 per cent of the population) followed a vegetarian diet, up from 1.7 million (or 9.7 per cent) in 2012.
