Once you know exactly how many calories you need to prompt weight loss, and how you want to structure your veggie diet, make those calories consist of whole, unprocessed foods.

Cutting out all of these foods can sometimes be problematic and contribute to vitamin B12 deficiency symptoms like fatigue, weakness and others. For this reason it’s recommended that all vegetarians and vegans who abstain from eating most or all animal foods take vitamin B12 supplements. Some grains, beans and legumes, such as raw soybeans, lentils and Mung beans, may contain trypsin inhibitors and other “anti-nutrients” that can make digestion difficult and hinder nutrient absorption. These inhibitors can block key digestive enzymes, and One of the most common trends I’ve found from working with hundreds of vegans and vegetarians is that they tend to over-consume carbohydrates and sugars. Eating too many carbohydrates can cause Candida and yeast overgrowth, along with weight gain. There are some who have been able to find better balance, but this can take a lot of work and planning. acid found in grains can keep you from absorbing calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc.

Even if you do not want to become a complete vegetarian, you can steer your diet in that direction with a few simple substitutions, such as plant-based sources of protein — beans or tofu, for example — or fish instead of meat a couple of times a week.

When you make a massive change or go “cold turkey” with something, it’s less likely to last for the long-term.

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.

A vegan diet excludes all animal products, including — but not limited to — eggs, dairy, and honey. Some vegans follow the diet for an ethical purpose and extend their exclusion of animal products beyond food, while vegans who choose to do so for the health benefits sometimes call themselves “plant-based eaters." A vegan is also called a “strict vegan.”

When you make yourself an omelet or simple salad, you generally assume you are consuming a healthy vegetarian meal. Unfortunately, eating protein sources (like eggs and dairy) that are not pastured and certain vegetables that are not organic might be working against your weight-loss efforts. Pesticides sprayed on food may disrupt your hormones and endocrine system, which could work against your efforts to stay fit, Blum explains. For that reason, she recommends trying to stick with animal products that come from pasture-raised animals (because they are able to graze on grass and worms, as opposed to being fed pesticide-ridden corn and soy) and avoiding the "dirty dozen"—the Environmental Working Group's top 12 most pesticide-laden fruits and vegetables.
