    Hello Elizabeth!

    I am a big fan of your blog and listen daily to your podcasts. I repeat each episode nearly twice to really let it sink in as you have motivated me yo get back to training and eating healthy

    I just have a question. I am a believer in that excess carbs, especially if not needed for a sedentary lifestyle, lead to fat gain and continuous hunger. I do realize that when I eat sugars (even fruit) this happens to me. I am not sure if it’s psychological due to having limited fruit and carbs for a long time. My question is, how are many vegans (I know at least 10) lean or at least not overweight? They depend on carbs (mainly fruit and rice/potatoe) for food. Most of he vegans I know see normal people and not athletes so they don’t necesarily use up all the sugar.

    Do you have any idea on this?

    Many thanks for your continuous generosity in providing us with so much information and motivation and allowing us to communicate our thoughts with you.

      How many vegans are overweight? No clue. I’d imagine the % mimics the % of all people who are overweight. Ultimately, it’s about quality of food and quantity of food. But if you aren’t vegan, I wouldn’t worry about it. As I tell my clients all the time, keep your eyes on your own work and focus on YOUR body 🙂
