My Weight Loss Journey
In about 6 months I have gone from 126 lb to 175 lb, as of today.
People always ask how I did it. I know it took discipline and restricted eating to do this. I also know that most people won't do it. It is hard enough for people to go fully vegan.
So what I did was I ate whole food plant-based vegan meals that contain little or no added salt, oil, or sugar. I avoid things that are processed. If it comes with a label, I read it very carefully. It is amazing how much oil is in things. Vegan coffee creamer, for example.
No diet gets you everything you need. Vegans have to think about B12, Omega 3's, and if you don't get enough sun, vitamin D3 (vegan). I supplement with a B12 vitamin and a vegan D vitamin. I also try to add flaxseed to at least one meal a day. This is so I get my omega-3s. I also eat oil-free Nori seaweed.
I feel better than ever. I also walk a lot more than I used to. I drink water, tea, or occasionally a cup of coffee.
This is my journey, I do not preach to others. You have to do what's best for you. This is what's right for me.
