I am currently writing an eBook for www.Dherbs.com called "Losing weight the healthy way." I have been a weight loss counselor for many years. I am also a health coach, personal trainer, bodymind nutritionist, and a vegan lifestyle coach.    When it comes to weight loss most programs want you to lose weight to get healthy. My mindset is to get healthy and lose weight.    In my health/fitness/nutrition coaching program I use a lowfat/high carb/ high raw/ nutrient dense/ high alkaline diet to achieve long term weight loss success. So far I am 100 percent in getting clients long lasting weight loss.

Nuts are best kept to a minimum if you use them at all. Nuts are extremely high in fat and have the opposite omega 3- omega 6 ratio that is optimal for health. Seeds are best as far as ratios are concerned. Also nuts are truly easy to over eat and cause your nutrient ratios to be off.   A healthy vegan diet is a high raw fruitarian diet.  Example:

Breakfast: green smoothie. (500-1000 calories of fruits blended with a handful of greens and water)

Bridge: Dates and strawberries (500 calories) 

Lunch: Salad with low sugar fruits (cucumber, tomato, squash, bell peppers) topped with fruit, beans, psuedo grains, 

Bridge: 2-3 apples

Dinner: Raw wraps (collard greens) with low sugar fruit and tahini

Snack: Sorbet  

Hope this helps!
