Meat-eating Indian boy, 12, is left with BLUE nails because of a vitamin B12 deficiency

1. Fatigue and exhaustion 

Fatigue or exhaustion occurs due to the lack of vitamin B12 found in eggs, fish poultry and cheese.

Vitamin B12 is a nutrient that helps keep the body’s nerve and blood cells healthy and helps make DNA.

The body does not make B12 and cannot store it because it is a water soluble vitamin, meaning it is eliminated in urine and we require a continuous daily supply in our diet. 

2. Unruly acne   

If you’re starting developing unruly acne, it may be due to a lack of protein.

Protein is essential to the maintenance of muscle mass as well as healthy skin, hair and nails.

A big issue plant-based eaters have is that no single vegetable contains all the essential amino acids one needs in their diet, unlike meat. 

Women need about 55 grams of protein per day and men need 65 grams. 

 3. Diabetes risk

Many vegans drink protein powder as an alternative source of protein.

However, a number of the ingredients have hidden or synthetic sugars that cause inflammation and upset the digestive tract.

The high-sugar content can also lead to a rise in blood-sugar level and eventually cause diabetes.

The synthetic sugars also make your body crave more sugary food because they are digested differently than regular sugars. 

4. Problems with digestive tract

Ironically, consuming too many vegetables can cause bloating and too many beans can lead to problems with the digestive tract. 

To avoid this, try cooking vegetables as your body gets used to the nutrients in them.

Beans are also great source of protein but eating them at every meal can cause GI tracts discomfort and gas.

5. Hyperlipidemia 

Many vegans rely on white, refined carbs, which lack fibre.

Consuming too many refined carbohydrates also increases the rick of diabetes and hyperlipidemia, a condition that occurs when there is too much fat in the blood.

Most people can’t tell that they have it, but eventually it can cause the formation of potentially-fatal blood clots.
