You are probably thinking that there is no way that fat vegans exist, but they do. How is this possible?
Usually when someone switches to a vegan diet, they transition by eating foods that replace the favorite foods they enjoyed eating that were animal-based.
If a person was an ice cream lover, all he or she has to do is buy vegan ice cream and they are good, right? Yes and no.
The vegan ice cream still has sugar and fat in some form to make it taste like the ice cream that has dairy, sugar, and eggs. It might be a healthier choice, but it does not make it any better than ice cream that has dairy.
Eating the transition foods is a good way to transition to a vegan diet, but it is not a good idea to continue on these foods.
Eventually one should get to a point in the transition where the diet consists of a high percentage of whole foods.
Eat More Whole Foods
Whole foods are foods that are whole and real with little to no processing. Whole-foods are not fake and are high in nutrients, vitamins, minerals and fiber. These are the foods that help you lose the weight and become a healthier person.
If you are considering becoming a vegan (eating a plant-based diet), be mindful of what you put in your mouth. Do not be fooled by the word, vegan being printed on the packaged food. Read the ingredient label before you buy the food so that you best food choice.
Just because you are not eating animals, does not mean that your diet is healthy. You have to make good healthy food choices, no matter what.
Some Vegan Foods That Make You Fat
The Fat Vegan is fat because of what he/she consumes. Stop consuming food that makes you fat and watch the weight disappear.
Stop eating these highly processed foods:
- Soy burgers
- Soy hot dogs
- Soy cheese
- Non-dairy spreads
- Vegan pizza
- Vegan snacks
- Soy ice cream
- Mock Turkey
- Mock sandwich meats
Limit the amount these foods that you eat:
- Do not over indulge eating nuts, seeds and avocados.
- Do not over do it on the oil.
- Limit your sugar intake.
Once you start eating more whole foods you will discover that you do not need the mock foods. The whole foods will be more than enough for you.
Whipping up tasty dishes using whole foods will help you stay away from the mock foods. Once you go whole foods, it’s hard to go back.
Eat more fresh fruits, vegetables, beans/legumes, whole-grains, seeds and nuts.
