The exact steps to lose weight - eating healthy & delicious vegan food....
You might have heard about the fact that the vegan diet has helped a lot of people lose weight, but you might like to know how it works. Well, the answer to that is the vegan diet is chock-full of fiber.
Fiber has two main benefits. First, foods that are dense in fiber help keep you feeling full for longer periods of time. This means you are less likely to have food cravings! Second, fiber helps cleanse the intestines and regulate bowel movement. This, of course, means that you will no longer feel bloated, because you will be carrying less weight around.
The vegan diet is particularly rich in fiber because all animal products do not contain any. If your diet contains mostly animal products, such as cheese, milk, eggs, poultry, and red meat, the chances of you getting the benefits mentioned earlier are quite low.
To follow the vegan diet, you need to have a guide, and this book is exactly what you need to get started! Think of it as a vegan guide for beginners or even a short "veganism for dummies" book.
Here is a preview of what you will learn:
A seven-day meal plan, consisting of breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks
Delicious breakfast recipes that are easy to follow
Sumptuous and filling entrees that contain lean protein, complex carbohydrates, and lots of fiber
Tasty and satisfying sides that are fun and fast to make
Delectable desserts that make you want to stick to being vegan
And so much more!
But wait, why not just go vegetarian instead of full vegan? While becoming vegetarian (meaning you are giving up the meat but still eating eggs, milk, yogurt, cheese, and other dairy products) is certainly a good step above following the traditional Western diet, these animal products are still responsible for your weight gain! This means that the sooner you transition to a 100 percent vegan diet, the sooner you will achieve weight loss.
To lose weight with the vegan diet more efficiently, eat more vegetables than fruit and whole grains. This is because vegetables are made up mostly of fiber and nutrients while fruit contains lots of sugar, and whole grains, while healthy, are still full of carbohydrates. If you do like to have the other two, you need to engage in mid- to high-intensity aerobic and strength workouts to burn off all the energy that you gain from those meals.
