2. You’re eating too much
Switching to a plant-based diet inevitably focuses your choices on healthy whole grains such as brown rice, wholemeal pasta and whole grain breads as well as vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds and the ubiquitous avocado.
These choices are indeed healthy but there is a tendency to allow yourself unlimited quantities because they are healthy.
One very simple reason that you are not losing weight, or even gaining weight, is that your nutrient intake far exceeds your needs.
After all, a breakfast bowl of oats, cooked in coconut milk and topped with fruits, nut butter, nuts and seeds, whilst delivering a nutrient rich start to the day, will not come with a low-calorie tag.
Keep your calorie intake in check by…
Consider your portions, using less ingredients per meal and even considering using smaller plates or bowls to limit the amount of food you eat.
