Can vegetarian foods be fattening?

Fat in Vegetarian Foods

It's a myth that if you follow a vegetarian diet you will automatically lose weight. In fact, many vegetarians actually have a really high intake of fat. The reason is due to foods like eggs, whole milk, cream, cheese, and butter that many vegetarians include in their diet. These items all have high calorie counts. And, some vegetarian protein sources, like seeds and nuts are extremely high in fat.

Despite all the dangers of unnecessary fats hiding behind every corner, you can still lead a vegetarian lifestyle and lose weight. The trick to maintaining a low fat vegetarian diet is to skip out on the fatty stuff and to opt for healthy vegetarian options (and healthy fast food options).
