How Come You’re Not Losing Weight On A Vegan Diet?

Ignore confusing dieting advice from mainstream publications.

In an article from The Globe and Mail, a person – who clearly has done almost zero research into diet and nutrition – writes into the outlet and asks for what reason they’re not losing weight.

The response to the person’s article is 100% Vegancorrect, but the actual solution is couched in so much terminology and text that it’s nearly impossible to discern what the writer is saying.

It’s pretty funny, actually.

It would’ve been a lot simpler to write back: “Being vegan doesn’t necessarily equal weight loss. To lose weight, you have to be burning more calories every day than you consume.”

The writer could’ve then gone on to explain the myriad of reasons for why he/she/ might not be losing weight.

Being a vegan or not doesn’t really matter, what matters is calories in – calories out.

Grains, bread, and other carbohydrate-dense foods are packed with calories, and the more you eat this type of shit, the fatter your butt is going to get, simply because of the number of calories taken in.

Meat-eater, vegetarian, vegan, paleo; it’s of no concern. What’s important is how much food you’re consuming. You could lose weight while managing to eat snickers chocolate bars every day.

You might end up skinny-fat and feel like trash, but it’s possible to lose weight if the “calories in-calories out” rule is obeyed.

While it’s certainly feasible for the vegan diet to be healthy, a person has to research it and research it a lot. You can’t just decide to go vegan one day without knowing how you’re going to go about it.

Calories in, and calories out. That’s the answer. Eat less, exercise more.  Disregard studies. Use common sense. Don’t let the mainstream media and their neverending reports and conflicting studies confuse you.

Regarding the media, at the end of the day, it’s all about ratings and viewers. It’s why they publish an article like, “Is Quinoa really good for you?”, or “The Dark Side Of Blueberries,” or “Why Kale Isn’t As Healthy As You Think.”

It’s click-bait.

Just so we’re clear though, The Globe did a good job outlining all of the reasons why the person is struggling with weight loss. However, all of the information and studies that were thrown at the reader did more for obfuscation rather than clarification.

With that said, the vegan diet is cool and I support those who go down that path.
