I like cooking and don't eat much processed food anyway. I'm imagining if I go vegan, I will naturally lose weight. Obviously I know I can count calories to be sure but I just wondered if anyone just found themselves losing weight when they went vegan.
I'm thinking maybe toast with tahini on it or a banana for breakfast. Couscous with veg or avacqdo salad for lunch, maybe with some nuts. Also I'm going to make some humus so will have that with salad sometimes. Dinner likely to be curry- made probably with coconut milk; pulses cooked with tomatoes, garlic etc. Maybe a tomato sauce with pasta.
If you stick to plant based eating (whole foods, veggies, fruit, beans, pulses etc) hell yes. Its easier to lose weight as a vegan than a meat eater or veggie for sure but there are more and more processed vegan foods every day so it's getting easier to be a "junk food vegan" too.
I've lost quite a bit since going vegan. Over a stone and half in a year by combining wholefoods with crisps, bread, vegan substitutes etc. I could definitely do a lot better but cutting out dairy has really helped. Plus, the fact that a lot of food options aren't open to vegans help!
