Why do you advise against a vegan diet?

Actually, a vegan diet can be wonderfully healthy. However, vegans just need to be sure they have good sources of vitamins D and B12, as well as minerals like zinc, copper and magnesium, and DHA, an omega 3 available as a supplement derived from marine algae, a vegetarian source. Generally a vegan approach tends to be lower in fat, so added olive oil and coconut oil will help bring this dietary choice into balance.
