In a 2005 study of vegetarian diets, researchers found that the closer to fully plant-based the subjects diets were, the more likely they were to have a normal body-mass index and healthy body weight. While vegans had a “significantly lower risk of overweight or obesity” (defined as a BMI of 25 or higher), even part-time vegetarians were 11 percent more likely than omnivores to have a healthy BMI. And while BMI is not the most reliable tool of measuring health, the Adventist Health Study — published in 2013, with more than 71,000 participants — found that across the board, omnivores had the highest BMIs, while vegetarian's were lower, and vegans/strict vegetarians were again the lowest.

Whether you are trying to reduce your cancer risk, slash your carbon footprint, or you just want to take a stand as an animal lover, there are tons of benefits associated with going vegetarian. And one of those benefits could be weight loss. In fact, a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition concluded that people who ate about 250 grams of meat a day—roughly the size of one half-pound steak, piece of poultry, or processed meat—packed on more pounds over the course of five years compared to other study participants who ate less animal protein. And this was true even when they had the same amount of calories overall. But slimming down as the result of going plant-based is definitely not guaranteed. In fact, certain missteps could lead to weight gain.

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.

Scientists have shown that one specific vegetarian diet can lower cholesterol almost as well as treatment with medication. Levels of Low-Density Lipoproteins (LDL), the "bad" cholesterol that causes clogging in coronary arteries, fell by almost 30 percent in participants who followed the diet. This was only slightly lower than those who used Lovastatin alongside their usual diet.The diet consisted of almonds, soy proteins, high-fiber foods such as oats and barley, and a special margarine with plant ergosterols, found in leafy green vegetables and vegetable oils.

I have had plenty of clients who believed it was okay to eat unlimited amounts of plant‐based treats (think coconut milk ice cream and sweet potato chips). Plant-based frozen foods, desserts, and snacks can not only be high in calories, but they are often made with refined flour and added sugar, and stripped of nutrients and fiber. While they are fine as occasional treats, when consumed daily, they can pack on pounds. One study found that processed foods may decrease post-meal calorie burning by nearly 50% compared to whole foods. Trade processed plant foods for fresh snacks. Reach for in‐season fruit and dark chocolate to satisfy a sweet craving; and raw veggies with hummus or guacamole for a savory fix.

You are preparing the food – if it does not taste good, you know who to blame. Try reinventing your favorites: Go for black-bean instead of steak burritos, or if chicken stir-fry is your thing, use tofu instead of poultry. And consider replacing turkey meatballs or the meat in spaghetti sauce with white beans. There are lots of dessert options, too, including raspberry lavender cupcakes, gingerbread pumpkin seed brittle, cherry-berry peanut butter cobbler and poppy seed scones. (Often, treats are made using nondairy milk, soy or coconut creamer, flaxseed, chickpea flour, vegan cream cheese, and even vegan sprinkles.)

Often when I evaluate clients food journals, I find that they are not losing weight because their nutrient intake exceeds their needs. I had one female client who was eating a large Açaí bowl for breakfast that contained multiple servings of fruit, nut milk, nut butter, and seeds. She would then commute by car to work and sit at a desk all morning. While the bowl was chock‐full of nutrition, it packed about three times what her body actually needed to keep her satiated until lunch.

But parents may wonder if kids can safely follow a vegetarian diet and still get all necessary nutrients. Most dietary and medical experts agree that a well-planned vegetarian diet can actually be a very healthy way to eat. But special care must be taken when serving kids and teens a vegetarian diet, especially if it does not include dairy and egg products. And as with any diet, you will need to understand that the nutritional needs of kids change as they grow.

But vegans go further, excluding all animal products from their diets – even dairy and eggs. If you're adhering to a vegan diet, that means no more refried beans with lard, margarine made with whey and anything with gelatin, which comes from animal bones and hooves, too. Fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, whole grains, nuts, seeds and legumes will be your staples.Precisely how you shape your vegan diet each day is up to you, but you will typically aim for six servings of grains, likely from bread and calcium-fortified cereal; five servings of legumes, nuts and other types of protein, such as peanut butter, chickpeas, tofu, potatoes and soy milk; and four daily servings of veggies, two servings of fruit and two servings of healthy fats such as sesame oil, avocado and coconut, according to an Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics guide. There is also no need to give up dessert: Vegans can eat baked goods )cupcakes and cobbler, for example) made without butter or eggs.
