How to Achieve Vegan Weight Loss in a Non-Vegan World
Article by Britney Smith
A vegan diet is among the healthiest possible ways of eating. By removing animal products from your meals, you will be eliminating the causes of many common ailments. Heart disease, diabetes, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure have all been directly connected to eating meat and other animal products. Another benefit of a vegan diet is the weight loss that you may experience when transitioning from a meat-centered diet to a vegan one.
Many vegans, however, do not fit the stereotypical image of the rail-thin health nut. An abundance of pasta, bread, and vegan desserts can even lead some vegans to be overweight. If this describes you and you’d like to reduce your weight, you’ll need to find a decent vegan weight loss program.
The problem with that is that programs specifically geared toward vegan weight loss are very difficult to find. The powders, bars, and shakes that are typically used by people wishing to lose weight are dripping with dairy and eggs. The meetings-based programs involve eating a lot of meat in their meal plans. Even the vegetarian plans don’t include an option for vegan weight loss.
Go it Alone or Get Some Help?
What is a vegan to do when the pounds are piling on? The best way to achieve effective vegan weight loss is to eat wisely. Learn to measure out portions correctly and make sure that you get enough fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Exercise for at least 30 to 60 minutes every day and drink plenty of water.
Of course, this is easier said than done for a lot of people. Vegan weight loss is just as difficult to achieve as any other type of weight loss, and we all know how challenging that can be. If you need some extra help, or if you can only thrive under a strict program that tells you what to eat and when, there are some vegan weight loss options available for you.
The recent rise in popularity of the vegan diet has prompted several vegan weight loss books to be released to the public. You can now get diet information specifically geared toward vegans at your nearest bookstore. Several special vegan weight loss food products have also been developed, meaning that you can walk into any health food store and pick them up. These products include soy weight loss shakes, vegan diet food bars, and even specially packaged vegan diet meals.
If you can’t find any of these options in your area, it may be helpful to contact one of those meetings-based programs to ask if they can help you to develop a special vegan weight loss diet plan. They may be able to work with you to develop a menu that you enjoy that you can use to take off those extra pounds.

Image by Paleo-Crossfit-Omnivore-Lowcarb-NonVegan-Meat-Diet Liar Keith - Author of the book The Vegetarian Myth - A deeply flawed book full of incorrect myths and containing false material and factual mistakes about vegetarianism. By a poorly researched author Liar Keith. Credit: Fact Review from Amazon Books by: "A. Perri" A. Perry found: "As someone who intensively researches these issues on a daily basis, I found myself underlining items on nearly every page that I knew were just plain untrue or were 'cherry-picked' facts slanted to give a certain perception. This is such a disappointment ...if she had only put the real work into researching the book properly. Once you lose the reader's trust that you are providing factual information what do you have? Ill provide examples: 1) On page. 140: The author states that "Carbon-13 is a stable isotope present in two places: grasses and the bodies of animals that eat grasses". She goes on to suggest that since there is no evidence of grass "scratch marks" on the human teeth found, that they must have been eating animals. There are many flaws in this thought process. First, I cant even begin to explain the preservation and degradation issues present in examining three million year old teeth for 'scratch marks'. Second, carbon-13 is an isotope found in ALL terrestrial and marine plants, not just grass. Finding high levels of C3 or C4 (which are what carbon-13 breaks down into) in human teeth only means that that human was eating large amounts of SOME plant, seed, nut, etc. (not JUST grass) or the animal that ate those. It is not as simple as GRASS OR COW. 2) On page. 142: The author states that there are no bacteria in the human stomach. This is simply untrue. In 2005 Barry Marshall and Robin Warren won a Nobel Prize in Medicine for discovering a stomach bacteria that causes gastritis and ulcer disease. There are currently over 130 known stomach bacteria. These are only  examples from a span of six pages. This pattern continues throughout the entire book. Fact is...the authors 'facts' just arent believable (which, again, is a shame). She writes as if the anthropological and archaeological evidence she quotes is written in stone, when in fact many of these topics are constantly under revision or not well understood yet. Most importantly, I just believe that writing a book and promoting it as a factual, scientific account of a subject when it is not is doing a great disservice to your (mostly) unknowing readers. If you are not willing to put in the real research effort, write a book that is touted as a personal account and nothing more. Selling flubbed facts to people who are truly searching for answers, inspiration or (insert what you are looking for here) is just bad journalism. Ill end this review with some facts and encourage any readers (whether you liked the book, hated the book or havent read the book) to always question whether what you are reading is true and to do some research of your own. The author cites 207 references in this book. 62 of those references are websites (~30%) 18 are newspapers and magazines (~7%) 32 are journals (~15%) 95 are other books (~46%) First of all, think about that. 30% of the references in this book come from "website" information. Five of those 62 website references were Wikipedia. Wikipedia! [which can be doctored, by anyone] One was Google Answers. [which can be joke answers] I wont let my freshmen students use Wikipedia as a reference in their papers, why would it be acceptable for a book? Like websites, newspaper and magazine information needs to be taken with a grain of salt. Of the 32 journals less than half come from well known, peer-reviewed sources. The remaining 46% are books, which can truly say anything the author cares to print (as this one does) and only show that the author is getting her information from another source (and another opinion) aside from the primary one. The point of this is to make clear that this is a book that is sold as (and which many positive reviews hype as) providing scientific, factual, intellectual knowledge on the vegetarian/diet/health debate. In reality less than 8% of the book is coming from peer-reviewed, fact-checked sources which can provide unbiased, neutral information. If anything I hope this review encourages people to get away from the bias, find factual scientific sources instead of second-third-fourth hand knowledge..and push for it to actually be factual if it presented as such.

SUMMARY: The Vegetarian Myth is a book full of inaccuracies that spreads more false myths about veganism and vegetarianism and its author is now widely regarded across the spectrum as discredited. It turned out to be wrong and full of mistakes. Mainly those who are lesser-educated and duped believe it, those who are actually familiar with science say "Oh, no." within the first few pages, and it gets even worse from there on. If you see anyone actually recommending this book, that person can be regarded as scientifically discredited. Actually touting this book would be greeted with a roll of the eyes and an expression of "Oh, geez no." And then that person's postings now come into question. The Vegetarian Myth is now considered debunked and in fact regarded as a book spreading more bogus and factually incorrect myths.
