Eat As Much As You Want And Still Lose Weight!

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Animals in the wild, eating their natural diet, don’t get fat. Only humans and our pets seem to have this problem of obesity. If you eat a proper human diet, you will not get fat and you will not go hungry. Humans evolved eating a diet of starchy root vegetables. If you eat a diet consisting primarily of potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, peas, carrots, fruit and other cruciferous vegetables, you can eat as much as you want without getting fat.

A plain medium sized potato only contains 110 calories. The average woman has a BMR of 1500 calories a day, which equates to a maintenance diet of nearly 5 lbs of potatoes a day. Most women are not going to be able to eat 5 lbs of potatoes a day, which means a diet of nothing but potatoes will most likely cause you to loose weight. Of course, there’s no need to eat only potatoes, just a whole food plant based diet.

Exact calculation: A sweet potato has 86 calories per 100 grams. 5 lbs = 2268 grams. 86 x 22.68 = 1950.48 calories per 5 lbs, or 390 calories per lbs. So to meet the average female BMR, a woman could eat 3.8 lbs of sweet potatoes a day. Eating your BMR will cause you to lose weight if you do any kind of activity during the day. Cruciferous vegetables are even less calorically dense. It would take nearly 8 lbs of broccoli to meet the average BMR.

Sweet potatoes are a complete protein and vitamin source; however, people eating plant based diet long term should also take a B12 supplement due to our modern water treatment. A 2000 mg tablet once a week is plenty.

People should not “accept” the fact they are fat. Obesity is nature’s way of telling you you’re not eating an appropriate diet. Obesity has been linked as a risk factor for dozens of diseases. There is a biological reason most people find fat to be unattractive.
