Hi Roberta, I went vegan about six months ago and have managed to shed weight I've been trying to get rid of since high school! There's a huge misconception about the amount of protein that we need, and if you look at our basic physiology we are essentially designed for a plant-based diet. Arguments may rage, but I know what has worked for me - plenty of fruits and veggies packed with fiber, and avoidance of animal products and even plant oils like olive oil - they're really just empty calories. Animal products are known to increase your chances of heart disease and many forms of cancer, whereas fruit and vegetables lessen these risks. Even if a high protein diet did work (and it didn't for me) I wouldn't want to take on these risks. Be wary of diets that require you to buy expensive products such as meat and dairy, -chances are good they have big financial backing from sources who don't really have your health, but only their own profits in mind...

I am not sure but my aunt told me that if I take meat only diet for 15 days, I can cut at least 4 pounds in two weeks. She said I should eat only meat and avoid cereal, vegetables or even fruits. I don't know any reasons behind this theory, however, she said she tried this and was able to cut weight. I will have to search on the internet whether high protein diet will help reduce weight.

Lately I've became more and more aware of the things that I eat and I'm thinking about maybe going partially vegan someday, it's really great for the environment and it's also great for health in general (if you take proper care of your health on the process), and also it's an amazing way to take care of your weight.

@Roberta i learnt a lot in the process of trying to lose weight. At the end of the day it's your willpower. But for nutrition wise, i eat less carbs related food and focus more on protein food. You may find that in the first few days you lose weight fast, that's because carbs hold water in your body, so when you take less carbs, water are flushed out of body.

One problem with protein focused diet is, although it can last longer, your won't feel satisfaction. As far as i know, carbs can make you feel satisfied in a way that protein won't. I experienced this and can understand the satiety thingy (i think?).

Also, one can never do both less carbs and less fats diet. You won't be able to sustain it in long term. You need either one to give you energy throughout the day. I chose less carbs instead of less fats, because I believe my body system is more sensitive towards carbs.

Well I may be wrong or poor in explaining these, please correct me if I am wrong!

Also, it's the total calories that matters. If you eat vege but 3000 cals, that's gonna make you gain weight like when you eat 3000 cals of non vege food. So it's down to a balance nutrition intake. ;)

And protein makes your liver works harder. Everything has its pros and cons. So complicated!

Generally speaking I am a vegetarian for more than 3 decades and despite that I out on weight just normally. I struggle to loose too. I found rice and sugars to be real culprit. Cutting them down helps a lot.

 

As long as you eat lean meat and sea food I don't see a weight gain problem unless you are deep drying them.
