I had been trying to lose the same 10 pounds for 10 years with little to no luck. When my sister suggested I try a vegan diet, I was skeptical. I was already vegetarian and thought my diet was healthy enough. I switched to a vegan diet for 3 months and lost 10 pounds almost effortlessly!
I never felt deprived. In fact, just the opposite-- I felt as though I could eat whatever I wanted (vegan) and still lose weight! It's incredible, I only wish I had tried this years ago. I'm never going back. Other bonuses included: the acne that I developed as a 25-year-old went away completely.
