Veggies have lots of fiber & vitamins and very few calories unless you soak them in oil.

News at 11.

I find the term "plant-based" amusing. It's basically an admission that "vegetarian" or "vegan" have encountered so much baggage that nobody wants to be associated with them anymore.

Yeah, lets take medical advice from the New York Post!

It's easy to understand why a vegetarian or vegan diet causes people to lose weight... the food doesn't taste as good.

You joke, but some of the most delicious food I've eaten has been vegetarian/vegan.

No doubt, there are some great meals that are vegetarian/vegan and I eat them somewhat frequently.  I'll go ahead and point out that a good steak is better than any of those meals, yet that's not actually the point I want to make.

It's more about daily eating than fine dining.  A bologna and cheese sandwich is cheap, easy and tastes better than most vegetarian dishes in the same price/convenience range.  Of course you do have PB&J in that category, but nobody wants to eat that 3 times a day 7 days a week.  Vegetarians still have grilled cheese, but vegans are a no go on the butter and cheese.

People want variety in their cuisine.  If you limit yourself in that category you're going to eat less, and you're going to lose weight.  Skip forward to fast food and you're putting a box of fried chicken from KFC up against a loaf of leafy bread from Subway.

Even on the meat eating Mediterranean diet... a little bit of chicken or lamb can make you choke down a lot more leaves than you intended to.
