  • Hi Aquabluebabe,

    Do you have a weight loss goal set? Your weight loss goal may be reducing your calories to a very low amount, and you might like to consider setting a lower rate of weight loss. This will give you some more calories to work with while trying to reach your goals.

    Best,

  • @aquabluebabe

    I just calculated your BMI and although it may feel like you have a lot to lose, objectively speaking, you have a small amount of additional weight. :) I would suggest aiming for a 1/2 lb - 1/4 lb of weight per week as this is more likely to be sustainable and not have a negative impact on your metabolism.

  • Ive recently started trying a no oil WFPB diet - and I want to limit my calories from fat to 10%. But this seems kind of impossible? Even if I dont eat avocado/nuts/tahini etc., I still end up with about 15%. Does anyone else have this issue? (Maybe its because I dont eat enough calories or eat too many beans/tofu?)

  • Beans and tofu must be limited. Chef AJ's diet is WFPB and easily controls fat.

    Professionally speaking, I do feel that quality of diet is more important than macronutrient distribution. While I do encourage limiting added and concentrated fats, there are a lot of nutrients that can be attained from consuming nuts, seeds, nut butters, and avocado.

    Kind regards,

  • yeah, I was really surprised how easily fat adds up! I didn't want to stop eating nuts etc because I think they can offer a lot in terms of nutrition, but even if I DO give all these things up (very sad) I still cant make it . Maybe ill just have to be a bit more flexible on the 10% thing. thanks for your answers

  • I'm surprised that I haven't turned into a sweet potato or broccoli floret,,,

  • I've cut added salt out of my meals and now the weight is falling off, food doesn't taste as good, yet. So now, WFPB SOS free...

  • I’m new here and am WFPB and I am really seeing how little fats one can eat to keep it at 15% of the days fat. And how easy it is to go well over my desired protein amount. I want to stay at or under 50g protein. This takes time to enter everything but I’m hoping once I get some recipes logged in it will speed up.
