Vegan Not Losing Weight
I've been vegan for 6 months but I don't seem to be losing weight instead I feel as if I'm gaining. Is there something I'm doing wrong? I follow the vegan way like you wouldn't believe. I've cut out meat, sugar, white products such as bread, pastas, milk, all dairy really.
I eat only vegan things, veggies, whole wheat and brown rice/ grains. I don't have a sweet tooth at all!
I don't get a lot of exercise but I do get walking in everyday and when it's not rainy I will bike to work...30 minutes each way. I weigh 9 stone and seem to be staying there and I'm 5 feet 4 and would like to lose 5 pounds but it doesn't seem to be going anywhere. I'm annoyed!
I eat 3 times a day and snacks consist of a handful of dried fruit or pumpkin seeds once in awhile. I definitely don't overeat.
Friends say I look great and before was very underweight back when I lived in California for so many years. I just don't feel very good about my figure at all.
Seems as if I lost weight when I used to eat meat and all that came with the mainsteam way of American eating habits...basically eating everything at anytime. Maybe since I'm 41 and getting older I am just weighing more...
I'm hoping someone can help me.
