Inspirational Vegan Health And Weight Loss Story

Heather was in pain every day. She was overweight. Heather needed answers. A vegan diet and plenty of healthy vegan food was the answer. This is Heather’s own words:

I found myself at 39 years old, 5’6” tall, 250 pounds, a smoker and drinker. I had arthritis in both my knees, chronic back pain, an irregular heartbeat that required medication, shortness of breath and suffered from severe depression.

I became a conscientious label reader. I did not look at the nutrition label anymore. I looked at the ingredients. It was such an eye opener. My life changed when I knew why I eat what I do, and what it does for my body. The easiest change for me was increasing fruits and vegetables. I found so many different varieties and learned how to cook them. I discovered so much about dietary needs and where to find protein, vitamins and minerals in vegetables, beans, tofu, chia seeds, quinoa, seitan…so many things I had never heard of.

By October… I had lost 125 pounds, or half my body weight. During my health screening, all of my biometrics were in “optimal” range. I found myself at 40 years old, 5’6” tall, 125 pounds, a former smoker and drinker. I no longer had arthritic inflammation in both my knees, no back pain, no longer on medication for an irregular heartbeat, no longer short of breath and happier than I had ever been.

  1. I’ve lost over 60 lbs now since I first went vegan about a year ago, and that’s without actively trying just yet… Like I haven’t watched my portions, or cut down on processed foods (as long as they’re vegan), or exercised. (I know, I know, I’m working on it.)

  2. I started out at 340 and I am down 98 pounds! I feel amazing. I still have 100 more to go and I know it’s due to my lifestyle changes. Vegan is more than a diet to me.

  3. Wonderful and inspiring article! I was a huge calorie counter and always had issues losing weight in the past, even 5 to 10 pounds. Since going vegan last year for ethical reasons, I’ve lost 25 pounds. I don’t count calories because I’m always filling myself with healthy plant-based meals. I never imagined going vegan would have such a positive impact on my physical health.

  4. I was vegetarian for 10 years and went #Vegan this year. I can’t wait for the weight to fall off! I mean, I love myself with my curves but for once in my life I would like to see myself as the most perfect form of what I should be and only living a cruelty-free life can do that for me 🙂 #GoVeg

  5. I’m so happy for all of you that lost some pounds !! I’m just a little disappointed that I did not loose any .

  6. Good for you Heather. I have been a vegetarian for 27 years. I am 59 years old and still weigh between 100lbs – 105lbs, my high school weight. I would like to be a vegan, but I cannot seem to give up cheese!

  7. So many reasons to eat right. Empathy, health,environmental effects,mind body spirit etc 🙂

  8. Me next me next! That’s amazing. Best part of being vegan is being able to eat what I want when I want and still losing weight!!!

  9. I went 100% cold turkey plant based in June. My A1c dropped almost 2 full points in 4 months and I only lost 10#. Here I sit 9 months in and it’s a bit of a different story. The great results stopped. Thank you for the encouraging stories it helps.. I’m still hoping to become one of them.

  10. Yep, same thing happened to me. I was just trying to be gentler to the planet and I lost about 55 lbs without even trying. Double score!

  11. I applaud anyone who makes healthy life choices, but it makes me uncomfortable to see these before/after type images used to promote an agenda like this. It suggests a bad/good stereotype that is too prevalent in our society. People can be healthy and still be different shapes.

  12. I start out doing well, then I fall off the wagon and cheat. I stress over meal plans and psych myself out. I want to totally change but somehow I sabotage myself every time. Im trying again this year and I hope I can totally make the necessary change!

  13. Its not from being Vegan, its from not eating as many calories and exercising.
    People loss weight on the Paleo diet, so do you recommend that too?

  14. Hey everyone! I’ve been a very health conscious person, eating raw organic vegan foods for quite awhile now.I thought I would post around here with my fellow health conscious individuals and raise some awareness on an amazing tree that doesn’t get nearly enough recognition. On my quest for better health I’ve come across a ton of great nutritious eats, but there is one that takes an honored place above all else. Moringa Oleifera! This plant is absolutely amazing it has: 25x more Iron than Spinach, 0.75x more Vitamin C than Oranges, 15x More potassium than Bananas, 4x more protein than eggs, 17x more calcium than milk, 10x more vitamin A than carrots… And this is just the tip of the iceberg! So Upon discovering this I went looking for the best Moringa products on the market, and my quest came to an end with Zija International. There are a lot of reasons I find this one is the best, but Ill sum it up with after taking this Moringa for some consecutive weeks, I’ve never felt better in my life! The great thing is Not only has zija helped peak my nutrition, but it has also given me the opportunity to make money by sharing this information with other people! Now I am job optional, and making tons of extra cash doing what I love, helping others improve their lives! Anyway I felt I would like to share this opportunity with my health conscious brothers and sisters! Check out the web page I dedicated to helping you become financially free while greatly improving your health! While you’re there leave your contact and we’ll get you started on your journey. Thanks guys much love! 🙂

  15. Everyone has their own reason for being vegan. Some do it for health some do for ethical reasons, and some do it for both. If you are eating vegan you are already making a good ethical choice whether or not you mean for it to be.
