Thanks for the great article! :) Report
thanks Report
Interesting. It is really easy to be a junk food vegetarian or vegan. Since I went vegan, I have lost 119 lbs. I tried so many things, and veganism seemed the right move for me. Report
Of course even easier would be to not worry about protein or fat at all - let them fall as low as possible. Americans (and just about anyone in modern Western nations) almost never show up as protein deficient. Protein is in everything you eat. The pushing of protein as a functional nutrient is just a food marketing tactic. Also, before going to a supplement for B12, I would check out options like nutritional yeast and other vegan options. You need only a tiny amount of it. Report
Bad advice about lower fat nut butters. Many low fat nut butters have more sugars/carbs and fillers to replace the fat. A solution? Buy natural PB or other nut butters and drain off the oil (peanut oil is great for Asian food). Of course, what you are left with is really thicccccck so be aware! Report

Whole food plant based “vegan” is what I’m doing after watching Forks Over Knives and The Gamechangers, and also reading How Not to Die and Engine 2 Diet. Report
Good article. Thanks for the tips Report
I adopted a vegan diet a few months ago, and I joke that I'm trying to avoid becoming an "Oreos are vegan" vegan. SparkPeople has definitely been helpful in tracking my nutrients! Report
Good article!!! Thank you for sharing. True about meat substitutes. You really need to read the ingredient list and study the nutrition label before you consume. The calorie to protein ratio in these highly processed meat replacement products often isn’t worth the calories cost. Report
good to read this --reinforces what we know! Report
Awesome...thanks.... Report
