Losing weight by going vegan

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight by going vegan


Avatar n tn The best weight loss diet I had to start for my new lifestyle healthy change. I know fresh is better but frozen is just as good and more convenient...
Avatar m tn Honestly stop trying to lose weight. You are in a healthy weight range now. But you should consider eating a little more and drinking more water.
Avatar f tn What's the fastest way to lose weight, I know is not going to happen over night bit any tips?
Avatar f tn This is a pretty old post, not sure the posters are still around, but you're right, antidepressants don't cause weight gain necessarily by causing someone to eat more. They just cause it probably by being sedating and slowing metabolism, but nobody really seems to know why for sure. The only one I know of that is associated with eating is Remeron. Being vegan, by the way, has nothing at all to do with eating little at al. Nor does it necessarily have anything to do with weight loss.
1314425 tn?1273909880 My point is that going vegan is a lifestyle choice which is based more on personal beliefs and convictions than losing weight and being healthy. You might not get the results you want and if you don't do it properly you can harm yourself. You REALLY should talk it over with your doctor before going into it as he/she can tell you more about what you need to do to make sure you're taking in all the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients you need.
Avatar n tn Personally I lost a lot of weight by becoming vegan. I was 143lbs 5"1 and my lowest from there was 118lbs from 5"1. Since I haven't exercised lately I'm back at about 125.5lbs but still I'm losing again.
Avatar f tn I am thinking the goal is to get my body into an alkaline state or close to one... and just that alone will help me lose weight... and losing weight is said to help me be more fertile and get pregnant easier... If I can go RAW, lose weight and then maintain it... better for the baby and my body!!! Again thanks for your input!!!
Avatar n tn Not a pregnant female (or any other kind) but the mere fact you eat a vegan diet has nothing to do with whether you're eating a healthy diet or one suited to losing weight. You also say you work out, but don't say how much, so it might not have been enough for you to speed up your metabolism. Some people are not suited to vegan or vegetarian diets, and some are -- you might be one of them and you might not be, but most vegans eat according to ideology, not health.
Avatar m tn Synopsis: I'm a vegan considering going Atkins for a short time in order to lose the last bit of very, very stubborn weight. About 50lbs of it. Confession: I've been fat all my life. Most of it I've not just been fat, but obese. in 7th grade I hit 220lbs. In high school I was at 285lbs. 5 years ago I hit 320lbs. Of course, the progression hasn't been that linear. During college I once dropped to 240, and after that spent my time bouncing between 260 and 285.
Avatar f tn My doctor recently changed my long acting insulin from lantus 90 units at night, to toujeo 90 units. Since taking toujeo I have gained 8 pound in 3 weeks. I'm so not happy. Lantus I didn't have that problem. I just had hip surgery so I can't move around as much. The doctor is like your making excuses about gaining weight. I follow a vegan vegetarian meal plan I'm not making excuses. I haven't gained weight in two years. I've been losing. She is pissing me off.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with Gallstones back in November of 2014 and my gallbladder was removed that Black Friday. I had already lost 25lbs during the time I was struggling with the stones and had visited the ER 6 times before they found what was wrong. After the removal I had your typical loss of about 5lbs I was at 160lbs at that point and time. Now almost two years later I am still struggling to keep weight on. I weigh a shocking 118lbs right now and I'm still losing about 2-4lbs a week.
Avatar f tn Okay so iv been try to lose weight. I was going great the first few weeks on going to the gym 4to 5 days and now iv lost my motivation or energy anything I can do to get that energy back or try not going off my diet something to help me not want fatty foods like burgers sweets coke etc.? Just need some advice?
Avatar n tn This might be a failed experiment and not the end of your search for a diet that suits you. As for losing weight, it is a long, slow process when it works -- quick weight loss usually is temporary, whereas loss from a permanent change in lifestyle takes time but lasts. I have no idea what's going on, but have you had your thyroid checked? I'm sure you have, but it sounds a lot more like that than fibromyalgia, at least from the little you've detailed here.
Tbd Well, unless you take drastic lifestyle steps to change the dynamics that led you to being on the medication in the first place, it is what it is. This includes changing your diet, losing and maintaining an ideal weight and exercise. Are you doing those things? More power to you if you are! Unfortunately, that is where a lot of people fail in controlling diabetes. Uncontrolled diabetes is dangerous so you will want to control is 'somehow'.
Avatar f tn I had anorexia for 3 years and now that I have recovered, I gained 20 more pounds than I used to weigh when I was healthy before anorexia. I am so inspired by vegan ism but don't know if it's right or how to start.
1100297 tn?1293079117 I have read almost every article I can get my hands on pertaining to this topic. I absolutly love it and am excited to try it. Its a lifestyle, not a diet. You cant just eat that way, loose weight, then go back to eating the way you were... you have to make it a lifestyle. Iv read about "dead foods". These are foods like bread, grains, dairy, meat, and pastas... anything man-made. Natural foods are those that we can grow in the ground.
1985196 tn?1402190098 I go from between 85kg - 90kg but would like 78-82kg . Should i go on Vegan lifestyle ?, will this help loose some weight with 10-20 km walking in 1 week . ?
Avatar f tn That's a broad question. I would say this, though, because I managed health food stores for many years -- not everyone is suited to be a vegan. And most vegans eat by ideology, not by what's healthy -- a lot of vegan food, particularly prepared food, is loaded with hydrogenated fats and sugar and other things best not eaten.
Avatar n tn t supplementing correctly. I am going try going vegan again. I will keep you updated on how it turns out.
Avatar n tn For starters, let me give you my stats here: Female, 19, 120lbs currently (always maintained 100-105), 5ft 1, premed/runner, no pre-existing autoimmune or hormonal conditions Past diet history: gone from carby vegan of 3 years to zero carb keto overnight (been at it for 3-4 months) After starting zero carb I started to see problems emerging in the 2nd month. I lost a bunch of hair (Telogen effluvium happens with a diet change so..
6231275 tn?1379901818 You can take care of your body as a vegetarian/vegan; however, you need to be vigilant in eating the combination foods and eating enough food daily so your body gets the protein, and nutrients it needs. As a vegetarian you should be getting all your vitamins and minerals from the foods you ate except Vitamin B12 and maybe Calcium (if you have a history of bone disease in your family).
Avatar m tn When I was going to college, I took a workout class that was actually ROTCs pt class. The group encouragement was amazing!! Try looking into group classes offered by your gym or get a friend with similar goals. The buddy system is such a motivatior. Good luck!
20853006 tn?1547666489 I have been losing weight every month, so I am really happy that I gained weight. I did go from being a vegan to a vegetarian because of all of the intense meat cravings that would not go away. I know that I might not be seeing the weight gain because I was already obese. I have been weighed by the same scale every month. I did have my boot on that I have to wear because of a fracture, but I always have my boot on when I get weighed.
