Can you really eat as much as you want as the book says? Because my appetite has turned ravenous, and I'm eating way more than one serving at a time. I'm really worried that I'm getting too many calories from eating too much food.
And why do some of these recipes have oil in them, because I had the impression that using oil was not allowed?
Hi Lauren, when I first read the book, I was shocked too. The key is to eat until you're full, then stop. The difference is that you'll be eating the right foods with a vegan diet. You'll find that you'll be really satisfied.
As for the oil, I only use olive oil, and it's sparingly. I was surprised that you can saute with water, but it works just as well. Sometimes, however, I want things browned, like onions, so I use a bit of oil.
Don't worry about too much about the calories. I know it sounds crazy, but you'll see results.
