Why is this? One word: Fiber. When you eat fiber-rich foods, this fiber sweeps through your intestines and pushes the crap out (literally). Giving your body a constant supply of fiber means you are always cleaning out the pipes. On the other hand, animal products contain zero fiber. And yes that means all animal products including red meat, chicken, turkey, fish, eggs, milk, cheese -- well, you get the drift. As long as you continue to eat these foods, you will find it difficult to lose weight.

Whole‐food carbohydrates are best because they don’t provoke an insulin response in the body, like white flour, or processed carbohydrates, Blum explains. "They don’t spike your blood sugar, they keep it stable for hours, and they’re also the richest in nutrition," she says. "Once something has been ground and turned into a flour, and then baked, it doesn’t retain the nutrition [and] it spikes your blood sugar, which can lead to weight gain [or] make it very hard to lose weight."

In a study published in 2014 in Nutrition, researchers followed a group of 50 overweight or obese adults for six months. They found that those on a vegan diet lost significantly more weight than those on other plans, including vegetarian, semi-vegetarian and omnivorous – by about 4.3 percent or an average of 16.5 pounds. The study authors suspect that is because the vegan dieters were focusing on high‐fiber foods, which help you feel full for longer, and their diets were low in fat and likely had fewer calories.

However, many people find that making the switch to a vegan or vegetarian diet doesn’t automatically lead to weight loss. It’s important to remember that we are all very unique, with different body types, genetic profiles, and metabolic rates. Some of us need fewer calories (energy) than others. And vegan foods like brownies and ice “cream” can provide just as many calories as non-vegan versions of these foods. Even healthful foods, like grains, nuts, seeds, and avocados, can add up in terms of calories if you are consuming too many of them. While I don,t recommend that you should become overly focused on calories, there are a few things you can keep in mind if you are pursuing weight loss on a vegan or vegetarian diet.

Becoming a vegetarian has become more appealing and accessible, thanks to the year-round availability of fresh produce, more vegetarian dining options, and the growing culinary influence of cultures with largely plant-based diets.

Omega-3 fatty acids, primarily those found in oily fish, can help maintain a healthy heart and reduce the risk of heart disease when eaten as part of a healthy diet.Sources of omega‐3 fatty acids suitable for vegans include: flaxseed (linseed) oil,rapeseed oil,soy oil and soy-based foods, such as tofu, walnuts. Evidence suggests that plant sources of omega‐3 fatty acids may not have the same benefits in reducing the risk of heart disease as those in oily fish. But if you follow a vegan diet, you can still look after your heart by eating at least 5 portions of a variety of fruit and vegetables every day, cutting down on food that is high in saturated fat, and watching how much salt you eat.

Many people choose to reduce the amount of meat, fish and other animal foods in their diets in order to lower their carbon footprints. Plant foods are “lower on the food chain” and require less natural resources, such as water and others, to produce. According to a report in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, manufacturing animal foods requires a higher proportion of water, land, fossil fuels and energy than most plant foods do.

Here is what several key studies have to say about vegan‐ism: In one study, 99 participants with Type 2 diabetes followed either a vegan diet or a diet based on American Diabetes Association guidelines.

If you are overweight, losing just 5 to 10 percent of your current weight can help stave off some diseases.
