Vegan diet is the Gold Panacea for Weight Loss, studies prove.

Being vegan is sexy, sexy in that your not contributing to the suffering of animals, the degradation to our planet, and vegan food is so tasty and it is known to increase libido and is the best way to lose weight, yes you heard that right, carbs equal weight loss!

Too many people have fallen for the low-carb, high protein diets thinking they will lose weight.  It’s way too much on the kidneys, liver and stomach digestion to eat that much meat, and the saturated fat is just that> fat.  Most people will recognize that they cannot keep their weight off on this fad diet.

The science has it written all over that going vegan plant-based you lose the most weight.  In a comparison of diets from 12 randomized controlled studies involving more than 1,100 subjects, Harvard researchers found that vegans lost the most weight of all. Vegan researcher Gabrielle Turner-McGrievy, PhD, from the Arnold School of Public Health at the University of South Carolina recently came to the same conclusion in her own study: Vegan eaters lost on average about 16 pounds over six months. And without counting calories!

Dr. Turner-McGrievy attributes their success to two main reasons: Not eating all that saturated fat from cheese and meat, and eating fiber-rich plants instead. “They tend to be lower in calories so from a weight-loss perspective, that’s a good strategy to feel fuller on fewer calories,” she says. Never mind all the other evidence that vegan diets improve heart health and lower the risk of metabolic syndrome, according to a 2014 studyRecent research also shows that a vegan diet could reduce your risk of many kinds of cancer.

Unlike low-carbohydrate fad diets, the vegan diet puts no limits on carbs at all.   A vegan group was allowed unlimited quantities of carbohydrate-rich pasta, beans, bread, rice and whole grains, fruits and vegetables.  Their average daily carbohydrate intake rose from 232 grams to 274 grams, and the more participants increased their carbohydrates, the more weight they lost.  Carbohydrate has only 4 calories per gram, while fat has 9.  Carbohydrate-rich diets also improve insulin insulin sensitivity, which appears to lead to an increased after-meal calorie burn.

Eliminating animal products cuts out every last gram of animal fat, and minimizing the use of oils means that the diet was very low in fat overall.  Plants are the only sources of fiber (animal products have none), a vegan diet built from vegetables, beans, fruit and whole-grains is naturally rich in fiber, which tames the appetite. A 2001 meta-analysis showed that every 14 grams of extra fiber in the diet cuts calorie intake by 10 percent.  So a low-fat vegan whole-foods diet tends to reduce calorie intake even when portions are not restricted.

The vegan diet is not a fad diet, but the most healthy diet for losing weight, cancer prevention, reversing Diabetes II, and helps with a myriad of diseases.  And not a fad because many people also realize they no longer want to contribute to animal suffering and degradation of our planet.   The vegan diet is the golden panacea for weight loss so what are you waiting for?

Tips:  Remove refined carbohydrates, white foods, and eat a whole-foods plant-based diet full of color, you’ll feel great and reap the rewards!  Exercise will help significantly.
