Vegans do not permanently lose the ability to digest meat, dairy products or eggs. However, temporary digestive problems can occur when these foods are reintroduced because intestinal bacteria and digestive enzymes have moved away from them. Therefore, it may be better for ex-vegans to slowly reintroduce animal foods with the help of vegan coaching, which can provide guidance, support and specialized advice throughout the transition process. Vegan coaching can be especially beneficial for those who are looking to make a successful transition back to a diet that includes animal products.
