    People eating a low-fat, vegan diet -- a pure vegetarian diet that contains no animal products -- lost more weight than those assigned to follow the National Cholesterol Education Program diet according to a study from researchers at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA. Weight Loss at 1 Year

    Weight Loss at 1 Year: 10.8 lbs vs 4 lbs

    After one year, those assigned to the low fat, vegan diet lost an average of 10.8 pounds compared to 4 pounds for those assigned to the National Cholesterol Education Program diet.

     

    Weight Loss at 1 Year

    Weight Loss at 1 Year: 6.8 lbs vs 1.8 lbs

    After two years, those on the low fat, vegan diet lost an average of 6.8 pounds compared to 1.8 pounds for those assigned to the National Cholesterol Education Program diet.

     

    Group Support Helped

    Those with group support did better

    “Those participants offered group support lost more weight at 1 year and 2 years than those without support,” the authors noted.

     

    Conclusion

    Conclusion: A vegan diet causes more weight loss than a cholesterol-lowering diet

    “A vegan diet was associated with significantly greater weight loss than the [National Cholesterol Education Program] diet at 1 and 2 years,” the authors concluded.

    “Both group support and meeting attendance were associated with significant weight loss at follow-up.”
