Exercise is not required to lose or maintain your weight but it is recommended. I did not start exercising until I had lost about 50 lbs. This meal plan includes enough protein to allow you to maintain your muscles without exercise. Exercise is recommended because it helps prevent osteoporosis and blood clots but it is not required for weight loss.

Vegan Plant Based Health Meal Plan

 

brunette woman in white tank top smiling and giving a thumbs up while holding pants that no longer fit to show weight lossThis meal plan was created by me for me. I can’t guarantee that it will work for you but it is what works for me. You may need more or less calories depending on height, weight, age, and exercise. I am 5′ 7″ and started at 303 lbs., 47.5 BMI, age 31 and am now 126 lbs., 19.5 BMI, age 34. I do the exercises in the exercise section above and then basically I stand for half a day and sit for the other half. If this meal plan does not work for you I encourage you to check out the Plant Based Diets page because there are plenty of plant based diets that work.

 

Meal Plan Information

 

This reduced calorie meal plan will eventually kill you so be sure to up your calorie intake as needed when you reach your target weight. Add about 100 calories a month until you are able to maintain your weight.

Your calorie intake should never be below 1200 a day because it is very unhealthy.

These meals are very large. They may cause uncomfortable abdominal cramping. They are made to take up space in the digestive tract and provide only the necessary amount of calories. To help ease this problem replace some of the vegetables with beans and/or rice or more fruit.  Small Red Beans have the least calories at only 60 per 1/2 cup cooked and Black Rice is supposed to be the healthiest rice but Brown Rice is lower in calories. Pineapple will also help with digestion because it contains bromelain which is an enzyme that breaks down protein.

Warning: Drinking too much water can cause death.

If you feel hungry or thirsty drink a cup or two of water. Do not drink too much water or it will flush the nutrients from your body causing an electrolyte imbalance making you feel tired and dizzy all the time. If your urine is clear then do not drink any more water. Urine should normally be a light yellow color enough to see through.

1The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that men and women obtain 5% of their calories as protein. This would mean 38 grams of protein for a man burning 3000 calories a day and 29 grams for a woman using 2300 calories a day. – The McDougall Newsletter Volume 06 Issue 04, April 2007

2Your greatest need for protein is when you grow the most. The greatest time of growth in a human being’s life is as an infant. We double in size during the first 6 months. The ideal food for a baby is mother’s milk. Therefore, breast milk is the “gold standard” for nutrition – during your time of greatest need for all nutrients, including protein. Five to 6.3 percent of the calories in human breast milk are from protein. This is the maximum concentration of protein we will ever need in our food supply. Knowing this value tells us that at no other time in our life will we ever require more protein. Consider the protein content of the foods we consume after weaning – these are even higher in protein – rice is 9%, potatoes are 8%, corn is 11% and oatmeal is 15% protein. – The McDougall Newsletter Volume 02 No. 12, December 2003

3A whole food plant based (WFPB) diet, with no added oil, can easily provide 10-12% total protein, which meets the long established recommended daily allowance (RDA) of 9-10% protein. The continued use of an upper ‘safe’ level of 35% protein of total, daily dietary calories in my view is grossly unscientific and completely irresponsible. – Dr. Campbell’s recommendations for Dietary Guidelines

4For adults, the protein requirement per kg body weight is considered to be the same for both sexes, at all ages, and for all body weights within the acceptable range. The value accepted for the safe level of intake is 0.83 g/kg per day (0.36g/lb. per day), for proteins… – WHO Technical Report Series 935, Protein and Amino Acid Requirements in Human Nutrition, 14.2 Protein requirements of adults, page 242, PDF page 257
