These are the best meat free sausages you can get. Far better than Quorn …These are the best meat free sausages you can get. Far better than Quorn ones



i've not tried Cauldron, but I eat Linda McCartney's brand of vegan sausages almost daily. They taste good.

I superdose on vegetables and eat lots of beans and cereals and this has helped me stay lean while adding muscle, strength, power, speed. I am transitioning to veganism for health and ethics.

This is a typical dinner of mine (note that the amount I eat, cannot fit into a normal plate, so I eat in a serving dish or baking tray). One of the benefits of being vegan - eat a lot and stay lean.

I can counter this with, as a vegetarian and semi vegan, meaning I have some vegan days, I am 2 stone at least overweight, because it's very easy to load up on carbs. Also eating these sausages are still processed foods, but it's not a bad way to get some protein on a veggie/vegan diet. I in no way eat properly though, even though I'm fully aware of what you need to do to eat healthy.

There's plenty of fads about however eating as little processed food as possible and eating food as nature intended is about as healthy as you can get. The Okinawan and Mediterranean diets are good examples of well studied healthy diets, although you'll find some components of the Okinawan diet more difficult to obtain. Eating a mediterranean style diet works, and they eat plenty of saturated fats. Fats are bad, the science we've been taught is though, which is why many people are fat because ironically they have been misled in to thinking fat is bad for you.

If you want a rough guide (rough because science is still not 100% sure) then read the side column sections in this article called The Bottom Line What we Know What We Don't know >


vox.com/201…bad


You can definitely eat saturated fats, but possibly not too much, you can replace saturated fats or some with unsaturated fats and you definitely don't want to be replacing any fat with nutrient poor carbs such as refined sugar and white bread. And whatever you do avoid trans fats. You can see evidence of this in the French diet where they consume lots of wine but also eat a lot of cheese which contains a lot of saturated fat but this could be a statistical illusion. These are guides based on current scientific knowledge. You're better off with a full english breakfast than you are with a cereal and orange/fruit juice breakfast, sounds crazy but the higher fat/higher protein diet rather than high carb breakfast will keep you leaner.

Yes I know all this but I have Cyclothymia (Bipolar Lite as Mr Stephen Fry likes to call it) and the medication I take also contributes to weight increase, I would guess if I ate a lot better then I might not actually suffer this condition, catch 22 as this condition alters my mood significantly as to oppose my good intentions to eat properly if that makes sense. So sometimes I can be a massive pain in the ass or assh*ole and sometimes I can be a force of nature which whips up a frenzy of goodness and packages it in delightful nuggets of informative good natured intention such as this post.

Sorry dude but this is nonsense. You're misinforming people.

It's really difficult to put on fat when you're eating just plants, and fairly easy to lose weight.

Fruit is a bit easier to over indulge on and more dense in calories and I think this is where vegans who can't shift weight are tripping up on.

That and relying too much on processed substitute food, and over consuming fats from nuts and avocados.

It's still important to consume healthy fat though. Just limit your intake.

Meanwhile you can stuff your face with as much broccoli as you can handle and not worry

Hmm gets me annoyed when people don't actually read through what I said. It's not nonsense, because what you're accusing me of saying is not what I said above if you care to read it again. Yes if you just eat plants and non processed food then it's hard to put on weight. This is not my point. I'm saying as a vegetarian and vegan you can absolutely be fat if you eat the wrong foods, and I gave guidance based on current science as to what to eat.

Lastly some medication can alter Ghrelin/Leptin signalling meaning you will gain weight because of increased function of Ghrelin and Leptin resistance, lack of sleep also affects this meaning you gain weight due to increased activation of Ghrelin.

Ok "nonsense" was a bit unfair. You do talk some truths. But carbs are not the enemy when it comes to fat loss.

No macro or micro nutrient in particular is the problem it's just the quality of those nutrients and the food that provides them.

I agree that just switching to a vegan diet won't make you healthy and lose weight (but it will help automatically if you eat a lot of cheese, fatty meats and drink fuller fat milks), but a vegan diet certainly wouldn't make you gain weight quicker or lose weight slower than a non vegan diet.

The key is clean eating, controlled portions and exercise (not so much for calorie burning but for increasing the performance of your bodies everyday functions).

The absolute best diet you can have is a well planned, balanced and controlled, plant based diet free of processed food.

I just didn't get where you were trying to go with your argument. It sounded as though you were implying that vegans consume more carbs - which is a non issue unless you're shovelling stuff like biscuits, bread and pasta down but people do that whether they are vegans, veggies or omnivores

Protein
Carbs
Fat
are all essential. What I said is that in the modern diet fats are thought of as bad which is largely untrue and are largely substituted by carbs. Also eating less calories helps but your metabolism can be hugely altered by medication and this alters your required calorific intake. Also I take Mirtazapine a friend of mine takes Olanzapine, these drugs can take you from having a required calorific intake of 2000 calories down to 1500 calories and you still gain some weight. This is somewhat explained by altered 5HT receptor binding antagonism and H1 Histamine receptor antagonism resulting in a metabolic syndrome. Exercise is useful for mental health and has general health benefits, it's not that great for losing weight though. Clean eating is a nonsense phrase, it means what? What does clean eating define, for me it's the epitome of pseudo science. Don't use this misnomer. Simply eat non processed food as much as possible in the right portions of the above macronutrients and don't eat too much for your metabolism. Of course it's not simple because if it was then there wouldn't be an obesity crisis, anyone that says tackling obesity is simply eating less and exercising is talking balleaux.

I'm all for good nutritional advice but it's complex and based on each individual, we can accept some generalisations based on science, but a one size fits all doesn't exist.
