You might have notice that vegans do tend to be slimmer and it is very rare to see an overweight vegan, but sometimes that is not the case.
Although vegans are hardly overweight, some people have trouble losing weight on a vegan diet.
Now we have heard the formula before, the one that tells you that to lose weight you need to burn more calories than what you take, which I truly belief is true and it really makes sense, but there are cases in which people eat way less than other individual, yet they gain weight and the other person doesn't.
We need to understand that people have different bodies and metabolisms, and some have bodies that can burn fat faster than others.
If you have this type of metabolism, then you need to pay a close attention how many calories you get.
Also it is important to understand that food is rarely 100% the cause of the extra pounds.
Physical activity is an extremely important factor if you want to lose weight.
If you live a life in which you drive to work, work in an office, spend some time in front of the TV at night, there are great chances that your unwanted weight comes from your physical inactivity.
So it is important to exercise at least for 15 min a day.
If you feel like you don't have time, start organizing your agenda to make space for those 15 min of exercise and along with the vegan diet, you will start to see amazing results.
Now if you want to see results even faster, I will recommend you see a nutritionist so they could give you a diet, vegan of course, along with some tips on exercise and they will help you keep track of the progress you are making and push you to attain greater results.
If you keep up with the vegan diet, I can guarantee you that you will reach your desire weight if you are persistent enough.
By following a vegan diet, one of the really good benefits you will get is your higher fiber intake.
Current recommendations for fiber intake are 27-40 grams.
Vegans meet and even exceed this recommendations by taking an average of 40-50 grams.
This benefits you in your quest for better weight because fiber helps in your digestive system, better bowel movement, reduces hunger and improves satiety.
