Sugar is bad news and the more you eat the harder it will be to lose weight. (By the way, if you do consume sugar be sure it is always organic.)Plus, overuse of sugar can lead to problems with an overgrowth of yeast in your body, and when that happens look out because it becomes nearly Impossible to lose weight until you get the yeast under control. (Trust me, an overgrowth of yeast in your body is not fun and the subsequent diet can be very restrictive.) Really take a look at your diet -- where might you be adding unnecessary sugars into your daily or weekly menu?

While it is okay to occasionally eat these foods if you go vegan and have NO weight to lose (always buy organic or non-GMO soy foods), it is not ideal if you DO have weight to lose. Many of these "faux foods" are high in fat and sodium, which go against your weight loss efforts. Much better to teach yourself how to create a whole foods vegan menu from the get go;

Although a well‐rounded vegan diet can be healthy and nutritious, a vegan diet that is not properly planned can harm your health. Here are a few factors that you may want to consider when starting a vegan diet. Vegan diets may be associated with an increased risk of several nutritional deficiencies.This is because meat, fish, and poultry are rich in several important nutrients that are mostly lacking in plant-based foods, including protein, iron, zinc, vitamin B12, phosphorus, and omega-3 fatty acids.

A vegetarian diet has been found to reduce the risk of heart disease, obesity, hypertension, type 2 diabetes and some types of cancer, leading to a longer life expectancy. It may lead to weight loss. Around 5 percent of people in the United States describe themselves as vegetarian.This article will focus on lacto‐ovo-vegetarians, people who do not consume meat, fish and related products, but who do eat eggs, dairy products, and honey.

Dried beans and peas, lentils, enriched cereals, whole-grain products, dark leafy green vegetables, and dried fruit are great origins of iron. Because iron is not as quickly absorbed from plant sources, the suggested intake of iron for vegetarians is almost double that recommended for non-vegetarians. To help your body digest iron, eat foods rich in vitamin C, such as strawberries, citrus fruits, tomatoes, cabbage, and broccoli, at the same time as you are eating iron-containing foods.

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.

Some vegans choose to take things a step further and stick with to a mostly "raw food diet.” Going on a purely raw diet may sound a bit extreme, but if you look at the food most people tend to eat all the time, you’ll realize that adding raw food to your diet may be beneficial to your body and overall health. Note, however, that folks dealing with digestive issues, such as leaky gut syndrome, are best keeping raw foods to a minimum. So which type of vegetarian or plant-based diet is healthiest? As a vegetarian or Pescatarian you’re able to get plenty of amino acids and vitamin B12 without supplementation, so I prefer those approaches to being a vegan. If you are a vegan, I strongly suggest you supplement with vitamin B12 and consume plant-based protein powder daily. Additionally, be sure to get plenty of nuts, seeds, mushrooms, beans, seaweed and higher protein grains like quinoa in your diet.

Vegan‐ism is defined as a way of living that attempts to exclude all forms of animal exploitation and cruelty, whether for food, clothing or any other purpose. For these reasons, the vegan diet is devoid of all animal products, including meat, eggs and dairy. People choose to follow a vegan diet for various reasons.These usually range from ethics to environmental concerns, but they can also stem from a desire to improve health.
Published at Thursday, May 02nd 2019, 07:41:38 AM. Vegetarian Lifestyle By Gabrielle Brookfield. How does a vegetarian diet work to promote heart health, weight loss and health benefits? And are there any risks involved in cutting out the majority of animal-based foods in your diet? Because plants are low in calories but high in essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, vegetarian diets can be very nutrient-dense. Research published in the Proceedings of the Nutrition Society found that “vegetarian diets are usually rich in carbohydrates, omega-6 fatty acids, dietary fiber, carotenes, folic acid, vitamin C, vitamin E and magnesium, and relatively low in protein, saturated fat, long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, retinol, vitamin B12 and zinc.” However, there’s no guarantee that a vegetarian diet will result in health improvements. Ultimately it all depends on the specific foods someone chooses to eat, plus his or her individual reaction to cutting out most, or all, animal products.
