Low Carb Vegan Brakfast FAQ

What is considered Low Carb?

While there is no strict definition of a lowcarb diet, there are different crtieria depending on the reason why someone chooses to follow a low carb diet.

Some people follow a low-carb diet with the purpose of cutting down calories and losing weight. In this context, anything under 100–150 grams per day is generally considered low-carb and is definitely a lot less than the standard Western diet.

Other people follow a low-carb diet because they have diabetes and their doctors have recommended it and that one consists of approximately 50-75 grams of complex carbs a day (not including vegetables).

Finally, people who follow. a ketogenic diet (also known as “keto” stick to less than 50 grams of total carbohydrates or 20 grams of net carbs (total carbs–fiber) as a reliable way to enter ketosis.

Can you eat low carb on a vegan diet?

With the growth in popularity of low-carb diets like Keto, even people vegans —who eat usually eat a high carb diet— may wonder if they could benefit from trying the low-carb trend.

.However, following a lowcarb vegetarian or vegan diet is entirely possible by aiming for a diet of around 100 to 125 grams of carbs per day.

This is not as low as very low-carb diets, which recommend you stay below 50 grams of carbs per day but going any lower would mean you’d reducing too much on the good-for-you carbs-like whole grains, beans, starchy vegetables, and fruits-that provide important nutrients including protein.

Are there any benefits to eating low carb as a vegan?

One of the main reasons people try to eat a low-carb diet is to lose weight. While it can certainly help, the reason behind it is the reduction of calories which can be also achieved without cutting down the most efficient energy source for both your body and brain.

Low-carb diets also provide a number of benefits like helping to reduce belly fat and triglycerides, raise HDL (the “good”) cholesterol, and lower blood pressure and blood sugar levels.

However, following a regular vegan diet has also been shown similar benefits besides lowering the risk of chronic health conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes, and certain cancers.

Moreover, vegans tend to weigh less than non-vegans, and people who adopt vegan diets are more successful at losing weight than people who eat animal products without the need to follow a low-carb diet.

That being said, vegan low-carb diets can have important health benefits for people with obesity, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, and certain neurological disorders but in those cases, the diet should be part of a complete treatment and prescribed by a physician.
