i guess in terms of wanting to lose weight a plant based diet essentially cuts out a lot of foods that you can eat because it'll contain simple things like butter or milk solids etc

I will always advocate for vegan, but it was easier for me to maintain a low weight on vegetarian since 90% of what I ate was eggs and cheese... which is not healthy... nor does it look healthy...

either way, vegan/vegetarian sweets will get me. ):

I'm empty, and I don't know how to be full.

I mean, I'm always going to say vegan. But I went vegan because I'm a tree-hugger and it's soooo much better for the environment.

 

Perks of veganism:

  • A large volume of food can easily be very low calorie if you don't use oil - e.g. made 10 cups of soup that was 560Cal
  • Good reason not to eat out because there aren't that many choices or you get a salad
  • People won't try to cook for you as much 

Really the big thing is either way, PLEASE supplement B12 and D3! These deficiencies are dangerous and avoidable. Might be best to just take a multivitamin if you are restricting. If you don't plan your diet well, might end up low in Selenium, Zinc, etc.
