    As a long-term vegan I find that my calorie and fat consumption is fairly low, but I eat far too many carbohydrates... Does anyone have suggestions for vegan meals or snacks that are low in carbs?

    Me too! Almonds or berries are good snacks, but I haven't figured out what works for proper meals yet.

    Of course, bean-based foods (chili, falafel) and anything in the soup family -- lentil stew/salad, corn soups, etc.

    Have you tried a raw kale salad? Google Russell James, he has amazing videos on all sorts of incredibly delicious things.. and I love his Kale Salad, they are on youtube and the web!

    Anyone think the carb restrictions on here are too crazy, particularly for vegans? I mean, there is a limit to how many grains you should eat, but all fruits and vegetables have carbs, and 74 grams a day is just ridiculous. Not sure how they calculated my carb requirements, but no matter how much weight you want to lose, you don't need THAT much of a low-carb diet.

    I agree. While I'm not a vegan ( primarily ovo-lacto vegetarian) I find the carb value unrealistic. I also find that the grams of sugar so low that if I have a single piece of fruit, I'm in the red!

    I agree about the nutritional stats: a single plum has sent me into the red before I adjusted the targets for myself (to match a vegan version of the Zone). One tip, though: if you change your nutritional stats yourself, don't set your cholesterol target to zero, even if you're vegan and don't eat cholesterol. It causes a divide-by-zero error that makes your stats page turn blank!

    I do wish the stats would subtract fiber (which doesn't affect your blood sugar or cause weight gain) from the total carbs, though! I also wish I knew what they were basing the original stats on, and cite their sources.
