1500 Calorie Vegan Meal Plan {With Shopping List}

The 1500 calorie vegan meal plan is great for losing weight on a plant based diet. It is filled with delicious recipes, plant based protein, and comes with shopping list.

There are many weight loss diet plans to choose from and most plans promise quick weight loss. Truth is, the only real factor to consider when trying to lose weight quickly is burning more calories than you eat. Here is the general rule:

Eating 500 calories less than you burn per day will generally result in a loss of 1 pound per week.

How much weight can you lose on a 1500 calorie diet?

If you are an average woman that burns 2,000 calories per day you should consume 1,500 calories per day to lose 1 pound per week. As an alternative, you can also create a caloric deficit by exercising more.

Let’s say you exercise daily and burn 300 calories (or you have a very active job where you naturally burn 2,300 calories per day.

This means you can eat 1,800 calories per day and lose 1 pound per week.

If you are creating a caloric deficit only by trying to eat less, you most likely will not get all your nutrients. That is why I recommend adding regular exercise to your routine. It will help you build muscle, burn more calories, AND eat a balanced diet.

Changing your whole lifestyle will not only guarantee long term success, it also provides more benefits to your health besides fat loss. Check out my popular 10-minute at home workouts to get started with an easy workout at home.
