The vegan way to lose weight accords its success to one thing: natural ingredients!
Animal products contain minimal fiber and have carbohydrates and fats you should be avoiding during a weight loss regime. Besides, with GMO fodder, animal products aren’t really the healthiest option either. Here’s what you need to load up on if you’re going to lose weight the vegan way:
The Vegan Food Pyramid
Check out the vegan food pyramid before you start. It’ll give you a good idea of what your upcoming diet will look like and it’ll give you a head start with grocery shopping. And it looks absolutely delicious!
Load Up on Protein!
Turns out, non animal foods have a larger amount of protein – and fewer calories! Beans, chickpeas, brown rice, lentils and dark chocolate should be on your shopping list!
Fiber Me Up
Vegan foods are very fibrous. They help to flush out your gastrointestinal region and promote health bowel movement. When you go shopping, make sure to add these to your basket: Broccoli, papaya, apples, quinoa, oats and whole grains.
Besides, these foods give you energy boost that lasts all day!
Low Calorie Antioxidants
Loading up on watermelon, berries and fresh ginger will not only cut down inches, but will also reveal healthy skin and stronger hair!
Tomatoes, asparagus, chilies, almonds, grapefruits, pistachios and green tea should be staple foods. Not only do they manage and regulate insulin, fat burning, hydration levels and vitamins levels, but they’re all low in calorie and easy to take to work!
This goes without saying. The most natural of all is water. Be sure to keep yourself hydrated. Drinking enough water keeps energy levels up, reduces untimely hunger pangs and keeps you alert.
A vegan diet will make you fall in love with nature and its yummies. Who knows, maybe you’ll make it a permanent lifestyle!
