  • depends on how much red meat you eat i think.

    eggplant is a good way to lose weight. It has lots of fiber so it's very filling, but doesn't have many calories, good nutrition and made mostly of water.
    Eggplant lasagna is really yummy too! and you can make it in the crock pot!

  • Sure, but you would have to make sure you don't replace it with anything else that will impede weight loss. AND you have to make sure that you are eating less then what you burn in a day. It's all about science and math, calories in - calories out. Look up a BMR calculator online and it will tell you how many calories your body burns in one day.

  • Would I? No, because I almost never eat red meat. I would lose weight if I cut out all the take out, ice cream, stress eating, and snacks.

  • I think I would have to cut out ALL meat to lose weight.. I only eat meat for dinner (or occasional bacon for breakfast) & its usually chicken/pork

  • No, not if you replace the calories by consuming more calories than you expend. I haven't eaten meat for 3 years, and exercise everyday. I have neither lost nor gained weight in that time. I do eat chicken and rarely fish. Not eating meat can be difficult because meat is dense,filling and as a protein, keeps you feeling full longer. Veggies and carbs just do not have that staying power.
