Master Class With Our Nutritionist: The Easiest (Healthiest) Way to Lose Weight on a Plant-Based Diet

|Updated Oct 6, 2020

At some point, we've all wished we had an opportunity to talk to a nutritionist about the healthiest way to eat to lose weight, build muscle, and if what we're eating will help achieve our long term health and weight loss goals. The Beet made this happen on video (below) when Editorial Director, Lucy Danziger hosted a live chat with Registered Dietitian Nicole Osinga, who created The VegStart Diet for The Beet, a 2-week plant-based plan that helps you get healthy, and lose weight, easily and naturally.

On the live video, viewers asked any question they liked about diet, weight loss, and calorie counting. To give you an idea, a few questions asked were: "What's the healthiest oils to cook with?" "What's the best source of vegan protein?" "How many calories should I eat to lose weight?" And, "How would you explain your diet: Are you vegan or plant-based?"

Nicole shared her expert advice on these topics and explained why 1,500 calories is the baseline for weight loss on The VegStart Diet. She elaborated on which is healthier: Keto, Paleo, or Plant-Based, and helped everyone better understand the importance of meal prep.

This video is like a free one-on-one session with a nutritionist who answers all your pressing diet questions. In case you missed it, the video is posted below.
