It may seem challenging, as many vegan foods, such as fresh fruits and vegetables, are low in calories. However, if you add enough high-calorie vegan foods, such as beans, nuts, plant oils and soy products, and eat six to eight meals per day, you can find enough calories to fill your daily requirements. If you simply increase calories without exercise, however, you will gain fat. Bulking up the muscles requires strength training along with the increased calorie intake. An online calculator can help you determine how many calories you need to maintain your weight, depending on your age, gender, activity level, size and goals. To gain bulk, add another 250 to 500 healthy calories to this number.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends not losing weight at a rate faster than about 2 pounds per week or you will be less likely to keep it off. This may not fit your definition of "fast," but it is the most manageable and safest rate. A 2-pound-per-week weight loss requires a deficit of about 1,000 calories per day. But do not consume fewer than 1,200 calories per day, which can leave you nutritionally deficient. One of the benefits of a vegetarian diet is that you are cutting out potentially high-calorie foods, such as fatty meats, poultry with the skin and processed meats. A vegetarian diet includes no animal flesh and sometimes no animal products.

There are many beverages marketed to plant‐based consumers: Kombucha, drinking vinegars, green juices, chia drinks, coconut water, and almond milk cold brew coffees, just to name a few. With so many choices, I have seen many clients unknowingly sip hundreds of extra calories per day. My rule of thumb is this: If it is not water or unsweetened tea, your beverage should count as part of your meal or snack. One vegan client who found she was not losing weight was drinking a smoothie along with her lunch salad. Unknowingly, she was essentially consuming two lunches every day. Another client did not realize that the healthy (and expensive) beverages she drank twice a day in lieu of soda contained about 300 calories total. That may not sound like a ton, but it would take a one-hour speed walk to burn off just those drinks.Make good old H2O your drink of choice, and if you reach for anything else, take a careful look at the ingredients, nutrition facts, and serving size so you can decide if it is the best fit for your body's needs.

Calcium‐fortified bread such as two slices of Burgen's Soy and Linseed provides a significant amount of an adult daily calcium needs (35%), as does fortified plant milk (34%) and 100g of calcium-set tofu (50%).Eat at least one serving of linseed (flaxseed), walnuts or Chia seeds every day to keep omega-3 fat high. One way to do this is to add them to a daily green smoothie made with fortified plant milk. This will also increase your intake of 5‐a-day fruit and vegetables.

To lose weight or reap the benefits of a vegetarian diet, there’s no set number of meatless meals you need to eat each week, says Haynes. “But choosing more plant-based options more often has been shown to promote a wide variety of health benefits,” she says. “There's a movement called Meatless Mondays that has brought this idea to the attention of a wider audience. Starting with one day a week, one meal a day, then expanding as you feel comfortable can benefit anyone!”

Give up all of the animal ingredients and foods that you won't miss, and allow yourself the occasional exception whether it’s a food, holiday meal, or favorite restaurant. I advocate following a fully vegan diet and I encourage you to strive towards that as a goal, but it’s just silly to abandon vegan-ism in it’s entirety because you love bacon or cheese too much. Don’t let yourself get caught up in trying to label yourself based on your diet, this is a sort of all-or-nothing thinking that’s simply not constructive. If allowing a little flexibility is what will help you sustain a mostly vegan lifestyle then that's exactly what you should do! This also serves to make the vegan lifestyle a lot less daunting and more approachable to others.

Although vegan diets are generally low in saturated fat, as a full-time vegan you may be missing out on the potent forms of heart-friendly omega-3 fats, known as EPA and DHA. We typically get these from fish and seafood, although sea vegetables such as kelp and certain micro-algae supplements can make a useful contribution. It’s also a good idea to include plenty of nuts, seeds and their oils especially walnut, flaxseed, hemp and rapeseed. Pack your lunch with a combination of carbohydrate-rich foods for energy and satisfying protein from foods such as nuts, seeds, beans and pulses. The key is to choose carbohydrates that produce a steady rise in blood sugar, which means passing on the sugary 'white' foods and going for high-fiber wholegrain, which help you manage those afternoon munchies.

When you Axe meat from your diet, you may be swapping that chicken stir-fry for a falafel pita—and paying for it on the scale. "Don’t be a French fry vegetarian! Just because it fits your criteria of being fit for a vegetarian diet doesn’t mean it is healthy for you," says Esther Blum, R.D., author of Cave-women Do Not Get Fat. "Keep your carbohydrates whole food-based. [They] should not come in a package with more than five ingredients—unless they’re herbs and spices. " Reach for sweet potatoes, butternut squash, any winter squash, plantains, yucca, beans, or lentils versus white-flour carbohydrates like bread, muffins, bagels, Blum says. If you want tortillas, she likes the kind made with cassava and coconut flours.

Once you become comfortable with eating no meat or poultry and regularly having fully vegetarian days, you should start to eliminate fish and seafood from your diet. An easy way to do this is to drop one serving of fish per week. However, you can move more quickly if you make sure to continue eating sources of all essential nutrients. To ensure that you do not simultaneously eliminate some essential fatty and amino acids from your diet, replace fish and seafood with plant sources of these nutrients. You can accomplish this by eating soy products instead of fish and regularly adding flax seeds to your meals.
