There is a lot of talk about how if you go vegan or whole foods plant based the weight will just fall off. In my experience, that’s not actually true for a lot of people.

The basic principle of weight loss is that your calorie intake needs to be less than what your body is burning throughout the day. For people who eat a lot of junk, the switch to a healthy diet will probably be enough.

However, if you are like me and have a problem with overeating, you’ll need to focus on eating low calorie vegan food so that you can eat larger portions and still lose weight! In comes these awesome low calorie vegan recipes.
