VEGANISM: “A philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude—as far as is possible and practicable—all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of animals, humans and the environment. In dietary terms it denotes the practice of dispensing with all products derived wholly or partly from animals.” -The Vegan Society
ANTI-DIET: Resisting diet culture, including the demonization of certain foods, the equation of thinness with health, and the oppression of people of sizes, abilities and appearances that don’t conform to narrow ideas of health.
Both the vegan and anti-diet movements are grounded in the concepts of body liberation. Veganism focuses on the liberation of non-human animals while the anti-diet movement focuses on tearing down diet culture and liberating humans from its harmful effects.
Together these philosophies provide an anti-oppression approach to well-being that aligns with the values of autonomy, inclusivity and respect.
You deserve to learn about vegan health and nutrition without being inundated with weight loss advice and fear-mongering about certain foods like sugar, oil and salt.
