You may have heard about ‘plant-based’ and ‘vegan’ diets and that they are very healthy. But you may wonder what a vegan diet plan includes and how you could adopt such a plan.
In this article, we will tell you everything you need to know including:
We have also included a 7-day vegan diet plan for weight loss.
There is no clear definition of what a plant-based diet is. It’s not even a diet in that sense, more a lifestyle.
A plant-based diet means exactly that: a diet that is mostly based on plants.
The main features of a plant-based diet are:
This sounds similar to a vegan diet but it is not the same as a vegan diet.
A vegan diet does not include any animal products whatsoever. This means the diet does not include any dairy (milk, curd, cheese), eggs, meat, seafood and honey.
In the plant-based diet, animal products are not excluded.
Many studies have demonstrated that plant-based diets are effective for weight loss. They may also help you maintain weight loss in the long run.
The water, fiber and high nutritional value of vegetables helps make them filling, healthy and a low-calorie option to have as the base of your diet.
Following a plant-based diet may also reduce your risk of developing heart disease, certain cancers and diabetes.
This is true for plant-based diets irrespective of whether you choose to be a vegan or not.
We are not suggesting here that you need to adopt a vegan lifestyle. There is no proven benefit of a vegan diet over other diets and in fact there may be nutritional deficiencies from following a vegan diet in the long term. Therefore, it is a personal choice and you should make the choice after careful consideration.
Let us look at a vegan diet plan for weight loss.
It can be tempting to focus on the ideal breakfast for weight loss, lunch for weight loss or best dinner for weight loss.
What is more important is a balanced overall food intake in a day.
Below is an easy to follow vegan diet plan for weight loss with an Indian diet that can be followed for a week (7 days). The portions are based on someone in the weight range of 70-80 kgs and should be used as a guide.
Please note the following points:
While we have provided a vegan Indian diet plan for weight loss below, please use this as a guide only. There is no single ideal diet chart, as a one-size-fits-all answer approach will not work when it comes to a weight loss diet plan. One’s nutritional requirements will vary based on a number of factors, including gender, height, weight, meal preferences, whether they have any medical conditions etc.
We have prepared the vegan Indian diet plan for weight loss focusing on mainly Indian foods. This diet plan is a sample, and we would recommend that you work with aDaily9 coachto customize it for your needs.

A plant-based diet is a way of eating that focuses on plant foods and limits unhealthy items like added sugars and highly-processed foods.
Plant-based diets have been linked to a number of health benefits, including reducing your risk of heart disease, certain cancers, obesity and diabetes.
Regardless of the type of diet you choose, having it plant-based is sure to boost your health in the long run and help you with weight loss. Use the 7-day vegan diet plan for weight loss in this article as a starting point to eat more plant-based foods.
If you’re reading this, we know that weight loss is a high priority for you. We also know that there are many programs out there offering you quick weight loss. Many of them require you to do extreme things like eat zero or very low carbs or give up on foods like grains or dairy. These are not sustainable and can even harm your health. And in almost all these cases, the weight that you lose comes right back. This is disappointing and frustrating. We want to help you break this cycle.
At Daily9 our focus is helping you achieve weight loss in a way that lasts. Without doing anything extreme and by sticking to the Indian way of eating. You will see that in the 7 day vegan diet plan for weight loss that we have provided above, we have provided a mix of Indian and multi-cuisine options, including possibilities of eating out occasionally. This is a more practical approach because many of us do eat out or order in. In our program we recognize this fact, and so aim to help you make better choices while also enjoying it. This makes Daily9 easy to follow in the long run and helps you with both weight loss and weight maintenance.
