Most people find that they will lose weight once they switch to a vegan diet. This happens for a few reasons:
Most often, people choose to switch to a plant based (vegan) diet for reasons other than weight loss. Some common considerations that lead to the decision to “go vegan” are:
A plant based, whole foods diet consisting of fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes and whole grains contains more nutrition than non-vegan convenience foods such as burgers and fries. When we switch to a vegan diet, we naturally reduce the amount of empty calories we consume and weight loss is an inevitable and in most cases, highly desirable byproduct.
Finally, other lifestyle changes typically associated with a vegan diet also contribute to weight loss. Vegans are more likely to cook meals themselves. Relying on processed and prepackaged food becomes a thing of the past. Other activities like yoga, walking or Tai Chi can also contribute to weight loss and a healthier lifestyle.
While most people do not switch to a vegan diet primarily to lose weight, weight loss is certainly one of the many benefits. Many unhealthy foods are naturally removed from our diet once we become vegan. The food vegan people eat is healthier and other lifestyle changes tend to follow suit – all of which have a positive impact on health, vitality and weight.
