5 Completely Selfish Reasons to Go Vegan

The ethical and environmental arguments for veganism are compelling. Despite this, many people seem unconvinced by the prospect of saving lives and reducing the impact of climate change. This could be because these issues seem so abstract and far-off. But maybe learning about the personal benefits of veganism would be more convincing? Here are a few ways that going vegan could improve your life.

Look more attractive

In his TED Talk, “In your face”, David Perrett explains that people with a healthy glow are perceived as more attractive than those without. So how do you develop a healthy glow? According to Perrett, by eating lots of fruits and vegetables! Many people have anecdotally observed that vegans have more of a healthy glow than their meat-eating counterparts, and now we know why.

Improve your sex life

Did you know that erectile dysfunction is usually caused by the clogging of the penile artery? This can start to happen when you are relatively young - it isn't just a middle-aged problem.

Studies show that female sexual dysfunction can have a similar cause. A diet low in cholesterol and saturated fat - especially a whole food plant-based diet - is the best way to prevent this. Additionally, vegans tend to have more energy, which is helpful in the bedroom!

Live longer

Studies show that, on average, vegans live 10 years longer than meat-eaters. They are also far less likely to succumb to heart disease, cancer, type 2 diabetes, and other chronic illnesses. That means those extra years of life are likely to be healthy and active rather than disease-ridden.

Lose weight

Who doesn't want to lose a few pounds? On average, vegans are a healthier weight than meat-eaters. A whole food plant-based diet has been shown to be the most effective for weight loss, and losing weight further reduces your risk of developing chronic diseases.

Attract potential partners

Last year, PETA Australia did an experiment where they made two almost identical dating profiles for the same man. In one, he wore a ‘Bacon’ shirt in the photo - in the other, he wore a ‘Vegan’ shirt. The vegan profile got twice as many matches and more than three times as many messages! It's impossible to know for sure why this is, but it's possible that vegans are viewed as more compassionate, and so are expected to be better partners.


Of course, this article is tongue-in-cheek. Veganism is an animal rights movement, and has nothing to do with selfishness! However, it doesn't hurt to be aware of the fact that going vegan has multiple benefits - it helps animals, the planet, other people, and of course ourselves.
