Why women think losing weight on a plant based diet is difficult
You know when I first went plant based I had already been vegan for about 5 years.
I had my routines and I didn’t eat too poorly BUT I was still stuck at the same weight I was after my initial big loss after having my first baby.
I was unhappy with how I felt in my body and I didn’t have the energy I needed to really show up as the mom I wanted to be for the kids.
This is why I’m so passionate about helping other moms as well.
The change you make to your lifestyle impacts more than just your health. It affects your entire family and it determines how you will show up for your children.
If you’ll be that mom who gets up and plays at the park or sits on the bench scrolling your phone.
I’ve lived both of these realities and I can tell you that if I knew then what I know now and what I teach now I wouldn’t have put off making the switch to plant based eating.
My biggest fear when thinking about going plant based was that I would miss out on the comfort foods I loved, it would cost me way too much time meal prepping, and I would be making complicated recipes only to have nobody enjoy them as in the kids at dinner time.
Do these fears come up for you as well?

Myths of plant based weight loss
Some people believe that the only way to lose weight on a plant based diet is to restrict your fat or carbs, eat only raw food, or eat salad and smoothies all day…
But this is NOT what plant based eating is all about!
ANYTHING YOU CAN EAT NOW YOU CAN EAT A VERSION OF ON A PLANT BASED DIET.
Here’s the truth:
Women lose weight on a plant based diet for a few reasons:
- Whole foods contain fiber and nutrients that satisfy and flush toxins and fat
- Eating whole foods eliminates cravings for sugar and salt
- They plan for success using a simple proven frame work like the Focused Foods First method
- They believe they can do it
So my question for you now is…do YOU believe you can do it too?
