Topic: Are there any good Vegan weight loss systems?
May 20, 2019 / By Asia Question:
Something like Nutri-System? I have heard of them but I can't seem to find any!
Yea, I think it's a myth that being vegan will make you lose weight. It's just about simply eating right. You can be vegan and still eat junk food and drink pop and avoid fruits and veggies. I've been trying to make healthy eating choices but I'd like to try something like a weight loss system to help me get started.
Let me clear this up- I'm already vegan! I'm vegan for ethical reasons, now I'm looking for a weight loss system that fits into that lifestyle. I'm not looking for people to comment on my veganism or tell me that I don't need a weight loss system. This is my personal choice, there is nothing wrong with it and it you don't know of a vegan weight loss system, then don't comment.
Okay, Holy Crap! I do not need a lecture or advice. I have done it all, I'm eating healthy- but I'm a 20 year old in menopause and losing weight is really hard. I'm not some 130 pound little girl that wants to lose 3 pounds! I'm trying to make the right choices, I KNOW what to avoid and what I should be eating. I know all about portion control. Thank you for your input but no thank you! All I want is a very simple answer to my question!
DOES ANYONE KNOW THE NAME OF A VEGAN WEIGHT LOSS SYSTEM?

The new Weight Watchers lets you eat as many of most fruits and vegetables as you like. It's perfect for vegans.
researchers found that dieters who ate eggs in the morning were less hungry than those who ate carb heavy meals
If you're a vegan, you probably don't need a weight loss system.
The point is to adopt a diet you can live with. It doesn't mean going vegan if you like to eat meat. It has more to do with portion control and balance. You can eat meat and still lose weight. It depends on the cuts of meat, how you prepare it and how much meat you eat, how often.
A "diet" is something you can live with for the rest of your life. You will lose weight and eventually reach your goal and be able to maintain it.
I have lost 30 pounds in ten weeks and six days by eating whole, real foods. I avoid white flour, corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, partially hydrogenated oils, hydrogenated oils, artificial colors, artificial flavors and anything that looks as though it was created in a lab by humans and not in nature by God. (I was slightly relaxed with this when I was pregnant. We'd go out for pizza on occasion and I would have it without cheese, but with the white crust. However, I would have a slice or two of whole wheat bread or even cereal to "make up" for it. I would also have a baked potato as well. Or, when we were on vacation, I would go for the white bread at a restaurant because it was better than nothing.) Well, breastfeeding probalby helped, too. If my body uses about 500 calories a day breastfeeding and on some days, I might get 1,500, then I'm burning quite a bit. (I have a three-year-old and a a baby who will be 11 weeks tomorrow. Even though my husband is home often and makes his own schedule, it's still not always easy to get something to eat.)
The thing about Nutri-System, from what I can tell, is that it's just portion controlled meals. My husband was looking into something similar that his doctor recommended. I pointed out that in addition to paying for that, we would still be buying groceries for meals for our three-year-old and me and anything for him as well. He was telling me that the diet said to not eat fruit as the sugar was bad. I said, sarcastically, "Yeah. As opposed to corn syrup, or high fructose corn syrup?" Really, part of my husband's problem was portion control. He ate a lot of the same healthy things I do, but just in larger quantities. He quit eating his natural peanut butter and Best Life spread sandwiches (using all-natural whole wheat bread) and is doing more soup (either canned veggie or homemade veggie) for lunch. Part of the reason he cut back on the sandwiches (he would do two at a time, too) was because I pointed out all of the fat in them. He no longer drinks soda, but homemade iced tea. (He does a couple of the regular tea flavor and a couple of the flavored tea bags.) With soup or pasta (whole wheat noodles, vegan tomato sauce and canned tomatoes), he'll now only have once piece of bread. He still ate some junk "food", or over snack on things like peanuts or tortilla chips, but doesn't' do that any more, either. We started to buy more baby carrots as we all eat those now. My husband and I eat celery, too. (Our daughter doesn't like it, which is fine. That and lettuce are the two common veggies she says she doesn't like. That's fine.) On the days my kids and I had MOPS we would go to a Mexican restaurant for the buffet. The last time he went with us, we did not go there. (I don't think we went anywhere.)
I also use portion control as well. Somedays, I miss being pregnant just because I could eat because I wanted to. I don't do that as much anymore. (Though about a half an hour ago, I was looking in the fridge for something sweet and decided to wait until later to have something.) I will also just have one piece of bread with dinner, especially if we are having pasta. I know I'm getting a couple of servings of whole grain with the pasta.
Anyway, I hope this has been of some help.
fast food is salty food if you cut back on the salt in a few weeks youll be able to better taste the natural salts in food and may not crave the junk as much as you used to
ditch the mayo cheese and top bun if you want to scrape off 250 calories from a restaurant sandwich
eating water rich foods such as melons tomatoes and celery can help fill you up without adding too many calories to your day
