Vegan diet: Are you dieting in order to lose weight? If so, a vegan diet has some deficiencies. You'd be better off by having a one time consultation with a registered dietitian at your hospital. You will be told what your ideal weight should be and how many calories you should consume daily depending upon your usual level of physical activity. You will be given a healthy diet specifically for you
