Are you a self-professed meat lover? One leading vegan resource platform is offering three carnivorous eaters $2,500 to eat a vegan diet for 30 days — and it could be you!
The platform VeganLiftz.com will give three self-identified carnivores $2,500 to eat a completely plant-based diet for one month in an effort to highlight the health and fitness benefits of a vegan diet.
In a recent nationwide survey including over 5,000 Americans, VeganLiftz narrowed down the top five most meat-eating states. Mississippi topped the list with 92 percent of people reporting that they eat meat daily. The others are as follows:
Recruits for the new study must be currently living in one of the these five states, must be between 18 and 60 years old, have no underlying health conditions like diabetes, obesity, or hyperthyroidism, and have eaten a meat-heavy diet consistently for at least a year prior. If you’re interested, you can apply here.
VeganLiftz intends to analyze and use the three finalist experiences going vegan for 30 days as case studies. Their hope is they will show that adopting a plant-based lifestyle will improve health and fitness, as well as expose challenges and drawbacks (if there are any). The intention is to provide people with real-life stories they can relate to.
The candidates who are chosen will be issued a vegan diet plan for the month. They will be required to complete a remote health and fitness check, both before and after the study. They will also have to take a good quality, head-to-toe before and after photo of themselves. Participants must go about their same everyday routines lives, only changing their diet to fit the plant-based plan. Candidates will be selected at the end of August, and the hope is to start the study in the middle of September.
Jason Hughes, founder of VeganLiftz.com, says, “Our main aim at VeganLiftz.com is to debunk any myths out there around veganism and help our community educate themselves on a plant-based lifestyle. As such, we are always looking to demonstrate the real-life affects being vegan has on a person’s health and fitness — it’s important to us that the case studies we produce from our latest recruits are honest, relatable, and informative, and both negatives and positives are reported on so people can make an informed decision on whether veganism is right for them, and how best to implement it.
“We’re super excited to hire our three carnivores and to see the results of the study! To get maximum results, we think it’s important to hire people who have previously eaten a lot of meat and so our research into the top meat-loving states of America came in handy here. If this sounds like you and you’re looking to try something new and transform your lifestyle, please apply now!”
A month on a vegan diet for that sum of cash, plus a chance to boost our health and fitness? We’ll take it.
