I recently turned into a vegan about a week ago. I know what the title of this thread is implying, but that's not the reason to as to why I turned vegan (it was because I was looking at my family's health history and noticed that it wasn't the greatest thing in the world...)
Is it true that going vegan will bring automatic weight-loss though? I am in no mood to lose weight, I am kind of content with my current weight actually. However, is it true that it will naturally bring weight loss, or do you still have to calorie count and such?
My sister wants to lose weight by becoming a vegan, and wants to make a healthier lifestyle for herself so that she won't have to deal with later health problems that we're afraid that heredity will bring to us. She wants to lose about 10-15 pounds, but can she do this by just eating vegan, or does she have to calorie count? She is unable to do exercise because she's a student and literally doesn't get the time (or else she probably wouldn't be going to bed at 3 am every night).
Are there any vegans who lost weight through veganism that can help out with this?
By the way, she's about 123 pounds and 5 feet 4 inches.
