We hear all sorts of things about plant-based diets and how if you follow one you’ll lose weight. That’s not necessarily true. But that’s not a reason not to do it. People ask me all the time whether it’s an easy transition. My answer is always, “It’s easier than you think it will be.” That’s not to say it doesn’t mean making changes that take some thought and sometimes planning. But all in all, despite it not being a miracle diet, it’s a good way to eat and it’s not difficult to do.
One thought on “Vegan for Weight Loss? Not Necessarily but Don’t Let That Discourage You! #tbt”
My uneducated guess would be that the Vegans and vegetarians lost more weight because following any type of restricted diet requires conscious effort when eating.
I’m celiac. Because I only eat gluten free, and I am very serious about this, I do not eat without considering what it is. I never accept free samples at the grocery store. I don’t eat the baked goods people bring to work. I rarely get anything deep fried.
I’m not super thin, but sometimes I think I might easily weigh more if I could eat whatever I wanted….
