Post Vegan Weight Loss Programs

Out of curiosity, are there any vegan weight loss programs? I don't need to lose weight myself, I am just curious.

Kaiser Permanente, one of the largest health insurance companies in the United States, has a medically-approved plant-based diet program (completely vegan): https://share.kaiserpermanente.org/w...et-booklet.pdf

Specific recommendations for a healthy diet include: eating more fruit, vegetables, legumes, nuts and grains; cutting down on salt, sugar and fats. It is also advisable to choose unsaturated fats, instead of saturated fats and towards the elimination of trans-fatty acids."

I heard Dr Neal Barnard speak on his '21 day vegan weight loss' book tour. I have the book, and its pretty clear that eating a whole food-plant based diet is the way to achieve, and maintain, a healthy weight.

I would start with a physical and get your hormone levels checked and your Thyroid levels checked.

If those check out talk with a dietician. Try taking some Metamucil to help regulate your bowel movements.

Best of luck to you

I am not on this but have heard a bit about Dr. Mcdougall's program. I believe he advocates for a low fat plant based diet.

Dr. McDougall is a steadfast champion of vegan diets, but some of his recommendations and claims are contrary to those of mainstream vegan organizations. Here are some of his claims that get him in hot water:

* Humans only need 5% of calories from protein
* People should not take vitamin D supplements
* Meals should be 70% to 90% starchy whole foods
* Vegans don't need to focus on getting enough calcium

It may not be what you meant, but extended fresh juice fast makes you lose weight. Certainly some of it is water weight, but calorie restriction with liquids is also much easier. You can be more precise. With a liquid diet you're less likely to keep on going back to the fridge compulsively.

I really think that vegan diet is much healthier than keto. It is up to you, but I believe in ol' fashioned fresh salads and smoothies.)

I have followed Dr McDougall quite successfully .

Lost a lot of weight and my lab results are tremendous. I was a professional athlete and ate less than 10% protein and a lot of starches.

Now long retired it works great and the starches (whole, almost completely un-processed) Variety of root veggies,legumes- with greens and veggies/fruits on the side.
