Serena Poon, a chef, nutritionist, and reiki master, tells Bustle that your body will let you know when a meal plan isn’t working for you. “If your body is experiencing reactions that last more than just the first few days, or if the reactions are more severe than slight discomfort, it may be because the plan is not aligned with what your body needs. Intuitively, we usually know when something feels wrong.”

She adds that if you need to change your diet for health reasons, it’s OK to put yourself first. “We contribute to ourselves, to others, and to the world at large when we function at our best. If you love animals but feel that you don’t function optimally as a vegan — there is no guilt or shame,” she says. “In the meantime, there are many ways you can still contribute to the vegan community and still support animal rights while making your dietary transition. We honor others with our best selves when we honor ourselves with our authentic truths.”
