As A Vegan You Need To Know These 3 Things To Lose Weight
In this articleI’m going to show you exactly how to lose your weight on a vegan diet.
I’m going to share with you all the vegan weight loss secrets and everything I’ve learned from working more than 5 years in the health & fitness industry, being vegan for 6 years now and investing over $32,800 dollars in my education.
So if you just give me a couple of minutes of your time, you can shave years off your learning curve, lose your weight effectively and predictably, 1-2lbs per week and finally live in the body that you want to live. This vegan weight loss strategy works for men and women.
Here’s exactly how to lose weight if you’re already vegan (or going vegan). So let’s jump right into it.
1. The Truth About Tracking
Are you serious about your vegan weight loss transformation?
Now measure your efforts. Too many people don’t step on the weighing scale out of fear. This is a recipe for disaster. If you’re currently following a vegan weight loss meal plan and you’re still fearful of stepping on the scale then you need to hear this: Your diet is clearly not working.
Really. If your vegan weight loss journey would be working you’d be looking forward to step on the scale. You can estimate to lose 1-2lbs every single week – quite consistently and predictably – if your lifestyle choices are dialed in.
If you don’t step on the weighing scale and are aiming to lose weight, it’s like not looking at your bank balance if you’re trying to increase it. It’s a recipe for disaster.
Step on the weighing scale every single day and write down your progress on an app or in an excel sheet. This will give you tremendous vegan weight loss results.

2. The Little Secret About Calories
No matter what you try, you simply are not losing weight?
In a likelihood of 99% you’re not being in a caloric deficit. Being in a caloric deficit has a DIRECT influence over how much weight you’re going to lose.
I tried to lose weight countless of times in my past. I always wanted to have a sixpak. I tried HIIT. Tried keto (which nearly killed me) and even fasting.
The only thing that ever worked is being in a caloric deficit. After 3 months of being in a consistent caloric deficit (+vegan), was the first time I ever saw my sixpack. Change your calories, change your weight. It’s that simple. Is it hard? Yep. But it’s simple. If there’s one thing you need to master to stay fit for life it is calories.
So track your calories daily until you see a good pattern in your food choices. Are you in a deficit? If yes, is the caloric deficit in the right range (500-1,000kcal)?
3. The Facts About Mindset
Food is both fuel and entertainment.
Eating food is fun and gives a lot of comfort. However, the more you can see the food that you eat as fuel for your life – instead of momentary comfort – the better your food choices will be.
This is a big mindset shift that helped me create my vegan before and after transformation. It can do the same thing for you – if you’re open to it.
In the past I saw food 100% as comfort. I li534qlla ate donuts for breakfast. On some days I literally drank a gallon of energy drinks a day. The result of this? I was living in a body I was not comfortable with. I looked in the mirror and unconsciously knew that ‘this is not me’. I barely found the energy to wake up in the morning.
This search for immediate comfort in my foods started to ruin my life.
So, out of desperation, I started to do the opposite. Right now, food is almost 100% fuel for me. The result of that?
I live in the body I want. I can drop weight on demand. I feel like I’m in control of my body and have energy to easily work 70-80 hours a week (if I want – and I almost always want).
So look at your fridge and be honest with yourself. Is your food fuel, or momentary comfort?
