I have started having raw green smoothies throughout the day and then a hot vegan meal at dinner. I come to this after being 100% vegan so I am not totally changing my diet.
I have read so many accounts of rapid weight loss on this sort of plan (or 100% raw) and am wondering if it is because the calorie counts are lower or if it has to do with the food being eaten?
I AM counting my calories and am averaging 1500 a day and have lost 8 lbs. in 4 days (again, after eating a healthy vegan diet -- not the fast food, cookie vegan diet).
Is this sustainable? And is the rapid weight loss healthy? Has anyone else lost a large amount of weight this way?
Thanks for your replies.
