Plant based diet weight loss before and after results from our experience. We have been choosing vegan diet options for the last 3 months. See how this has transformed us in terms of mood, energy levels, sleep, weight control and more. We were initially worried like everyone else about the implications and whether we would be risking vitamin deficiencies and low protein issues. We quickly realised this was one of many myths out there.
We had tried every previous diet under the sun including the paleo diet, intermittent fasting, calorie counting, calorie switching, the Mediterranean diet, juicing, atkins, keto or ketogenic diet, etc. In this video we discuss our results and before and after when it came to plant based dieting.
In our journey for a healthier lifestyle we came across several surprising occurrences. We were shocked at the ingredients on the back of over 80% of food labels in the supermarket. Everything seemed to contain dairy or skimmed milk powder, sugar in the form of high fructose corn syrup (usually disguised in various ways), high sodium salt content and other colourings. We were finding it hard to understand why this was necessary. We began to realise that a lot of these substances are highly addictive and mass media will have you believe they are necessary for good health despite new research shown much the opposite. Thus why in the video we talk about educating yourself and increasing awareness, there is now plenty of information online including on youtube. A balanced view is always key as is looking at raw facts and data.
Preparing meals in a whole plant based diet is not as difficult as you think. We tend to meal prep two to three times per week and use as much raw vegetables and ingredients as possible. Our palates have changed to the point that there are precious few restaurants we can now eat from when dining out! Again this is normal as your body becomes more accustomed to actual nutritious food rather than empty addictive calories. We also noticed a complete lifting of the so called brain fog although all of these changes took weeks rather than days.
Even in the world of bodybuilding there is so much misinformation. You can absolutely continue training with a plant based diet as you are able to keep up with macros but in possibly an even better delivered way to the body. A plant based diet really has changed our lives and we discuss the results in this video. Another surprising change was weight loss despite eating much more in terms of carbs. It was interesting that the fat reduction was in areas which were otherwise very stubborn previously despite trying numerous diets. Vegan weight loss and health benefits are real and shockingly under-represented in the media for obvious financial reasons.
