No Diet Pill Just Healthy Diet For Fat Vegan

The Fat Vegan Project

Chris from Gloucestershire Veggie Fayre has embarked on his Fat Vegan Project.On his new blog he tells us

"Over a year period I will attempt to lose weight to finally get down to my healthy weight (around 11 - 12 stone) which I was only 6 years ago. If you were to listen to most experts they would tell you that in order to lose weight you might want to cut down on dairy and meat... Well Im a vegan and Im knocking on 22 stone.

With help from some vegan nutrition experts, the vegan business comunnity and moral support from friends and family we hope to raise some serious
money for vegan / animal charities."

Chris will be helped by London Nutritionist, founder of Foods For Life, ION (Institute of Optimum Nutrition) tutor and co Author of "Vegan" - Yvonne Bishop-Weston.

She says "Following all the publicity about the new diet pill this is perfect timing by Chris to prove the best way to loose weight is a weight loss diet based on a healthy diet"

Chris is living proof that a Vegan diet or Vegetarian diet is not always necessarily good protection against putting on weight. There are plenty of high calorie, high carbohydrate, high sugar, high fat foods and drinks that are vegan.

"With help from a Personal Trainer I hope to help Chris gradually lose weight so that the fat loss is sustainable and he ends up as a shining example of how healthy you can be on a 100% plant based vegan diet."
