Vegan food tends to be lower fat and lower calorie so you can eat more without gaining weight. It's great if you're like me and love to eat!
Sometimes it seems like I'm eating more food in a day than my omni boyfriend but I'm a whole lot tinier than he is, it's insane.
I agree with both of these! It could be your simply needing more food, especially if you've stopped eating a lot of high-calorie non-vegan foods and replaced them with things like fruits and vegetables which are much lower in calories. I always eat much much bigger platefuls than men (including my omni boyfriend!) and people much bigger than me - it's sometimes quite embarrasing when people are saying how full up they are after a meal and I'm still hungryOriginally Posted by luvourmother
simple solution: eat more food
lots of reasons why you can be feeling hungry, may not even be related to changing your diet.
