Health experts are recommending vegans and vegans-only diet plans to fight Crohn`s disease.
But as the number of people suffering from the disease grows, there are growing calls to find more effective treatments.
Health experts say vegans should follow a strict vegan diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables and avoid dairy and gluten.
They also say vegans should be mindful of how they choose to eat, and don`t rely too heavily on processed foods like french fries.
Thegalveston, Texas-based company Galveston Nutrition LLC recently launched its vegan diet plan called the Galvestonian Diet, which is being launched as part of its ongoing effort to combat COVID-19.
The company plans to launch a vegan version of the plan in September.
According to the Galestonian Diet plan, participants will focus on a vegetarian diet that includes fruits and veggies and minimizes the consumption of meat, fish, eggs, and dairy.
The goal is to lose weight while eating a variety of plant-based foods that are low in fat and saturated fat.
The Galvestonic Diet plan will include a weekly shopping list of about 80 healthy ingredients.
A “portable vegan diet” that includes some fruits and nuts, as well as vegetables, fish and dairy, is also included.
Galveston will sell the plan for $100 to $200 per person.
According to Galvestan Nutrition, the plan is intended to “provide a healthy, satisfying and sustainable diet to people who want to eat a plant-powered diet.”
The plan, which will also be sold at the Galvezon Market in the town of Galvestonne, is being marketed by the company as the first vegan diet.
A vegan diet plans are available at other grocery stores in Texas, including Whole Foods Market, Whole Foods and Market Basket.
“We think there are so many people who are already vegans who don`re even aware that they`re getting the best diet,” said Dr. Jennifer Sorenson, the founder of the nonprofit, Galvestonite Diet Alliance, in an interview with Business Insider.
Sorenson said that many of the people with Crohn’ s disease who don’t have access to a plant based diet aren`t aware of the nutritional benefits of a plant fueled diet.
“It`s really important that we reach out to people and educate them,” she said.
Serena Vickers, CEO of the Galveon Nutrition Alliance, told Business Insider that it`s important for people to get the facts about the plant based food sources that are in the diet.
“They`re not going to have to wait until their symptoms get worse,” she added.
Sorensons goal with the plan was to get people to think about how they were eating, and to find out if they were following a plant or animal based diet.
She said the group is also looking at making it easier for people with a chronic disease to have access for the first time to vegan products.
Sutu Lai, the co-founder of the organization that developed the plan, said that the group hopes to expand the program into other cities and other countries as well.
The plan will also include a list of other vegan and vegetarian products, which Sorenons co-invented.
“I think it`ll be really helpful for people who have been diagnosed with Crohns,” Sorenns said.
“When you look at the ingredients, you want to go to a vegan diet because there`s a lot of plant foods,” she told Business Insider.
“But it` s not just a vegan, plant based meal, it`re a very healthy one, with fruits and beans, vegetables and legumes.”
Sorenson said there are a lot more people suffering with Crohs disease than there are plant based diets in the US, which means the demand for more plant- based products is likely to increase as people become more aware of their options.
“The idea of people going vegan, especially if they`ve been diagnosed before, is very appealing,” Sorens said, adding that people with chronic disease can also benefit from eating more plant based products.
But while there is some hope for vegans in terms of their ability to lose excess weight and get healthier, experts say they should keep in mind that the plant-food options in the Galván diet plan will not replace meat and dairy in the diets of most people with COVID disease.
“There are some people who really are not going back to a meat-based diet,” Dr. Laxmi Ramanathan, an endocrinologist at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, told the BBC.
“There are also people who don’ t have Crohn�s disease, but who eat a variety.
So that`s one thing that you need to be aware
