Vegan weight-loss diets are easier to stick to
Weight-loss diets are notoriously hard to stick to and even when people lose weight, they frequently put it back on afterwards. This study found that, compared to vegetarian, Paleo, gluten-free and weight loss diets, it was the vegan diet that most people were able to stick with over time. Those who saw their diet as an important and positive part of their identity and were confident in their ability to adhere to it were more likely to succeed, while those just motivated by a desire to lose weight were less likely to.
