TOP TIPS TO BOOST WEIGHT LOSS
Don’t assume that giving up meat and dairy will help you lose weight – many vegan foods are packed with calories, especially if they contain a lot of oil, coconut products, nuts, seeds and/or dried fruit. Vegan cheese, for example, is still high in calories and fat. So get into the habit of checking the nutrition panel.
Snack wisely – vegan crisps, chocolates, cereal bars, cakes and biscuits can be just as high in fat, sugar and calories as regular ones. Fruit is a better choice.
Honey is off limits on a vegan diet but that doesn’t mean you should go crazy with alternatives like maple or agave syrup. They’re still free sugars so use them sparingly.
