VEGANUARY participants re-entering the omnivorous world have been warned to begin with eggs rather than going straight to the hard stuff.
Diet experts have advised that, after a month of quinoa and rice and tofu, plunging back in with a bacon sandwich could send the weakened body into a state of flavoursome shock.
Dr Helen Archer said: “Ease yourself in with a nice pint of milk. That doesn’t really taste of anything, much like everything you’ve had in the last month.
“Then eggs. Stay away from anything but the most mild cheddars for at least a day. Even a cheese omelette could overwhelm your impoverished palate.
“Sausages are your ideal gateway to the world of meat, given they’re about 70 per cent bread, then perhaps some chicken. Don’t hit the beef until you’re sure you’re ready.
“Every year we get reports of people celebrating the end of Veganuary with a late-night kebab and being rushed straight to A&E with near-terminal meat sweats. Don’t be that guy.”
Nathan Muir of Watford said: “Nonsense. I’ll be fine with this steak bake. W-what’s happening?! My senses – FLOODING – my mind – BLOWN!”
