But before you begin lifting weights, be sure to get advice from a pro (such as an instructor at your gym). You can hurt yourself if you do not know what you are doing. Finally, be patient with yourself. Make changes to your diet in baby steps for the greatest long-term success. Hope you have found some answers you were searching for today. Thanks for being here. Most people tend to associate a vegan diet with being lean. And science backs that notion. In a study of 40,000 adults, Oxford University researchers found that meat-eaters had the highest BMIs; vegans had the lowest; and vegetarians and semi-vegetarians landed somewhere in-between. But throughout my years in private practice, I have worked with plenty of clients who did not lose weight after cutting out animal products. And some even gained weight. Here are five common reasons this happens, plus how to avoid them—so you can reap both the health and weight-loss benefits of going vegan.

Less than 10 percent of our daily calories should come from saturated fat, according to the latest Dietary Guidelines for Americans from the USDA. These fats are mostly found in animal products (as well as tropical plants like coconut and palm), so a vegetarian diet would be naturally lower in them.And then there’s fiber, which is only found in plants like fruits, vegetables, and grains. “A lot of the plant-based proteins are also high in my favorite nutrient in the world — which is fiber! Those high-fiber diets have been shown time and time again to help with promoting weight management,” says Enright. Fiber helps make you feel fuller longer, which means you may be less likely to snack, she adds. With a fiber‐rich diet, you are creating good gut health and keeping things moving smoothly, too.

Research shows that, overall, vegetarians have a lower risk of many different types of cancer, compared with meat eaters. However, the same study found a higher incidence of colon cancer among vegetarians. A vegetarian diet has been linked to a lower risk of cardiovascular risk factors. Studies have found that the more meat people consume, the higher their risk of type 2 diabetes. Vegetarian food tends to be lower in fat, especially saturated fats, and higher in fiber, than animal-based foods.

Others may decide to become vegan to decrease their ecological footprint, as plant-based diets are thought to generate fewer greenhouse gas emissions and use fewer natural resources. Still, the environmental impact of any diet depends on multiple factors, including the way that foods are produced, packaged, and transported. Some also decide to follow a vegan diet for health reasons, as vegan-ism is associated with a multitude of benefits and may even help prevent certain chronic diseases.

"But fruit sugars are very healing for the body, combat inflammation, and clean up liver and hormonal imbalances that contribute to weight gain." But she recommends avoiding juices that have been sitting on the shelf at your local grocery store, as they their lose their nutritional value just a day after being processed. You are better off juicing fresh fruits‐and, ideally, even more veggies than fruits—at home.

Traditionally, research into vegetarianism focused mainly on potential nutritional deficiencies, but in recent years, the pendulum has swung the other way, and studies are confirming the health benefits of meat-free eating. Nowadays, plant-based eating is recognized as not only nutritionally sufficient but also as a way to reduce the risk for many chronic illnesses. According to the American Dietetic Association, "appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases."

Unless you follow recommended guidelines on nutrition, fat consumption, and weight control, becoming a vegetarian will not necessarily be good for you. A diet of soda, cheese pizza, and candy, after all, is technically "vegetarian." For health, it is important to make sure that you eat a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. It is also vital to replace saturated and trans fats with good fats, such as those found in nuts, olive oil, and Canola oil. And always keep in mind that if you eat too many calories, even from nutritious, low-fat, plant-based foods, you will gain weight. So it is also important to practice portion control, read food labels, and engage in regular physical activity.
