The modern classification of vegetarianism has been formed for more than 100 years, having gone from partial rejection of meat (flexitarianism), rejection of meat, but with the assumption of fish in the diet (peskarianism) to a complete rejection of all animal products, including milk and eggs. Currently, there are mainly two directions: veganism and lacto-ovolacto-vegetarianism. Veganism is the most severe form, including eggs and animal milk (except human breast milk for babies).

The word vegan was proposed by the ideologist of this trend Donald Watson in the middle of the last century as an integral part of the first three and last two letters of the English word “vegetarian”. This term was introduced by the “Vegan Society”, founded by Watson in the UK. Continue reading

Proteins are an absolutely irreplaceable nutritional factor, they are the main plastic material in the construction and renewal of all cells and tissues of the body, are indispensable in the immune status and energy balance. All enzymes that play a major role in metabolism are proteins. About 450 g of protein are involved in metabolism daily. About ¾ of them return again – to the synthesis of their own tissues and substances of protein nature, but ¼ part is lost during this exchange. It is this loss that determines the magnitude of a person’s need for protein replenishment.
The daily protein intake is 0.8 g per 1 kg of body weight, i.e. on average, it is from 50 to 120 g of protein per day. With an active lifestyle, it is necessary to consume 1-2.5 grams of protein per day per 1 kg of body weight. It is believed that people who are professionally involved in certain sports (bodybuilding, long-distance running) get a positive effect if they use an additional amount of protein. Continue reading
