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 tailored advice to make the transition easier. Vegan coaching can also help to ensure that the reintroduction of animal foods is done in a safe and healthy way.
