“ Common dietary patterns seen in my practice in clients who are vegan/vegetarian include diets high in fat and carbohydrate, and lacking adequate intake of both essential amino acids and protein for the individuals age, weight and physical activity levels. In addition to this common nutrient deficiencies include low iron, omega 3, calcium and B12 “ * Leeanne Azzopardi – Principal Dietitian
