Do not be afraid of nuts! (that made me giggle.) But seriously, so many people ask me if nuts are okay to eat when you are trying to lose weight. The answer?Yes! Nuts provide important healthy fats we need, and are high in vegan protein. Raw nuts provide important enzymes we need. Toasted nuts tend to taste a little more interesting and make the protein more available for your body. So I recommend eating some raw nuts and some toasted nuts to get the best of both worlds. Just do not go crazy with them -- 1/4 cup nuts per day if weight loss is your goal;
When it come to losing weight, low carbohydrates, gluten-free, vegan, and Paleo diets seem to get most of the attention these days. But don’t discount a good old vegetarian diet: An estimated 4.3 million adults in the U.S. consider themselves to be vegetarian, and an additional 3.7 million consider themselves vegan.You may have heard how a vegan diet can help you lose weight. But if a 100 percent plant‐based diet seems like too big of a change, a vegetarian diet can help you lose weight — if you go about it the right way.
A high‐calorie, vegan bulking meal plan might begin with a fruit smoothie made with juice, berries and hemp protein powder, plus some whole-grain bread with hummus and a bowl of oatmeal. For a midmorning snack, try a raw, vegan energy bar along with dried fruit and mixed nuts. At lunch, you might have a large serving of tofu with quinoa, roasted vegetables and olive oil. A mid-afternoon meal might consist of nut butter on a bagel with fresh fruit. For dinner, enjoy a bowl of lentil soup followed by a burrito made with a large whole-wheat flour tortilla, black beans, avocado and brown rice. Before bed, snack on fresh pineapple and soy yogurt.
