High Volume, Low Calorie

It is a common misconception that in order to lose weight we must eat as little as possible. In reality, considering calories vs volume is very important, particularly for vegan diets.

For instance, 500 calories could look like a very small slice of cake or, when volume eating, it could look like a large salad, a tin of tuna, a bowl of yogurt AND a coffee. Essentially, you’re consuming a higher volume of foods that contain less calories. As a result, you:

  • eat healthier foods;
  • feel full and satisfied (which is great for reducing snack cravings!); 
  • automatically increase your fibre, vitamin and mineral intake; 
  • don’t feel as though you’re restricting the amount of food you can eat, thanks to the large portion sizes.

Thirsty? Choose water.

Can water help you lose weight? Absolutely! Science has shown that increasing your water consumption may facilitate weight loss and here are a few of the many reasons why:

  • It helps to flush out bodily waste. Water works wonders when it comes to producing urine and facilitating the movement of faeces through the body, which means you will: stay hydrated; be less likely to experience bloating or constipation; and maintain good kidney health.
  • It stimulates your metabolism. Drinking water stimulates heat production, which causes your body to expend energy in order to warm the liquid up to body temperature. The greater the expense of energy, the faster your metabolism will work, meaning that you will be able to burn calories at a quicker rate!
  • It’s a natural appetite suppressant. With zero – yes ZERO(!) – calories, filling your stomach with water will send signals to your brain, making it believe that you are full. What’s more, we humans are often unable to distinguish between our bellies rumbling for food or for water, so drinking a glass of water before each meal can help to prevent over-eating when you are, in fact, just thirsty.

Additionally, for those who like an adult drink, cut down on your alcohol consumption! According to the NHS, ‘A standard glass of wine can contain as many calories as a piece of chocolate. Over time, drinking too much can easily contribute to weight gain.’ So, if you’re confused as to why you’re not losing weight, but you’re having a glass or two of wine a night, it might be an idea to reduce the amount of alcohol you drink.

Say Goodbye to Processed Foods

Processed foods are a large part of most peoples’ diets, and are also the reason why so many of us find it hard to shift our extra weight! But why? In order to improve their taste, processed foods are high in sodium, sugar and fat (= more calories!), which may cause us to consume greater amounts of these nutrients than the recommended levels. Moreover, processed foods are lacking in the good nutrients and fibre that helps to fill you up, meaning you may end up overeating later on. That’s why it’s best to stick to raw and whole foods that will fuel your body in a better, healthier way.

Start Meal Prepping!

Preparing your meals in advance will allow you to keep tabs on what you’re eating as well as preventing you from indulging in quick-and-easy unhealthy food (such as those processed foods, fast foods and takeaways!).
