Foods like kale, collard/mustard/turnip greens, broccoli, bok choy -- these types of foods provide vital nutrients including calcium which is needed to lose weight. If you are lacking in calcium, your vegan weight loss efforts could be hampered; do drink a boatload of water. All those amazing fiber-rich foods you should eat need water to aid them in the job they need to do. Two-three glasses a day is not going to cut it for you. The range of your water intake should be 6-12 (8 ounce) glasses per day. Shoot for the lower range if you eat lots of water-rich fruits and veggies and smoothies, and the higher range if you don't.

"It will build hydrochloric acid in the stomach, so you can digest your food and avoid bloating, gas, reflux, and absorb nutrients better." Healthy digestion will only aid your weight-loss efforts. "In one study, when vegetarian dieters added more protein to their diet so that 30 percent of their daily calories came from protein, they automatically ate 450 fewer calories a day and lost about 11 pounds in 12 weeks, even without adding more exercise," says Partha Nandi, M.D., gastroenterologist and author of the forthcoming book Ask Dr. Nandi. The best sources of plant-based protein, which also offer satiating fiber, include beans, legumes, lentils, quinoa, and heart-healthy nuts, Nandi notes. It may be tempting to grab a tofu- or pea protein-based meat substitute when you are in a pinch, or even on the regular, but these products are often highly processed and filled with fattening, chemical-laden ingredients, such as sugars, hydrolyzed starch, or the additive disodium guanylate. Plus, many options are just as high if not higher in fat, sodium, and calories than the real thing, says Nandi.

People choose vegetarian diets for many reasons, including personal preference, health concerns, dislike for meat or other food from animals, or they believe a plant-based diet is healthier. Some adopt a vegetarian lifestyle for ethical reasons. Many vegetarians, for example, avoid meat because they do not want animals killed or harmed. These individuals may object to the treatment of animals raised on industrial farms. The environment is an additional concern for some vegetarians. Issues have been cited concerning all aspects of the environment, such as animal waste from factory farms polluting the land and water or forests that are cut down to make room for grazing cattle.

Some people develop a semi‐ vegetarian diet — also called a Flexitarian diet — which is essentially a plant-based diet but involves meat, dairy, eggs, poultry, and fish on occasion or in tiny quantities. To get the most out of a vegetarian diet, take a variety of fresh plant-based foods, such as whole fruits and vegetables, legumes and nuts, and whole grains. At the same time, lower back on less healthy choices, such as sugar-sweetened beverages, fruit juices, and refined grains. If you want help, a registered dietitian could assist you in creating a vegetarian plan that is right for you.

Benefits of a vegetarian diet include obtaining more antioxidants and fiber, better protection against obesity or weight gain, and lowered risk for heart disease, diabetes, autoimmune disorders and metabolic syndrome.

A well‐balanced vegetarian diet should also include lots of raw and cooked veggies, limited processed foods, low amounts of added sugar, and little refined grain products.

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.

Once you become comfortable with eating no meat or poultry and regularly having fully vegetarian days, you should start to eliminate fish and seafood from your diet. An easy way to do this is to drop one serving of fish per week. However, you can move more quickly if you make sure to continue eating sources of all essential nutrients. To ensure that you do not simultaneously eliminate some essential fatty and amino acids from your diet, replace fish and seafood with plant sources of these nutrients. You can accomplish this by eating soy products instead of fish and regularly adding flax seeds to your meals.
