What I Eat in a Day as a Vegan for Weight Loss Day 5
I am sharing with you what I eat in a day to help give you some ideas to go about your own vegan diet. If your goal is to go vegan but you’re not concerned about your weight then this is such a great time for this. I remember when I first tried going vegan many years ago, there was not many options and it was really hard for me to stay consistent. Now a days, there are vegan choices everywhere. There are so many health food stores that have vegan options. There are vegan hamburgers, donuts, cakes and ice cream. You name it, you can find the vegan alternative. Now, if your aiming for weight loss then you want to stay clear from too many vegan alternatives because it is processed foods with extra sodium and sugars. Refined sugar will cause weight gain even though it’s vegan. You want to eat plant based, whole natural foods for weight loss. I will share with you what I eat in a day.
