【Veganism = healthy? 】People often ask: "Why am I not losing weight on a vegan diet?". In fact, differences in ingredients, compositions, and cooking practises affect plant-based food‘s calories. Following are some examples.
In order to enhance the food flavour, cooking methods, such as fried, braised, hot stir-fried and thickened, use a lot of oil, which can easily lead to excessive fat intake.
The most common seasonings, such as sweet and sour, braised and sauce, are high in sugar and salt content. Excessive sugar intake accumulates in the body as fat while excessive sodium can cause edema.
Providing that many of the vegetarian diets are ultra-processed foods, preservatives and seasonings (texturizers, dyes, emulsifiers, salt) have already been added. Thus, it is still possible to consume too many additives even simple cooking methods (steaming, boiling, blanching) are adopted.
Friendly reminder: Vegetarians need to pay attention to vitamins B2, B12 and essential amino acids intake, which can be found in milk , egg & dairy products..
