Is is possible to go low-carb, high-fat on a Vegan Diet?

I am doing research on a plant-based diet, and a meat & dairy based diet. I wonder if it is possible to go low-carb on a plant-based diet, and what would be consumed as a staple of the diet.

I think most non-Hebrew reading people with find the translation of Wolfman's blog message less than appealing. :( Additionally, I can only wonder why he would bother writing about "feeling used" when being served by a well endowed waitress in a revealing outfit... he had the choices to enjoy or ignore "the view" or leave.

"Plant based diet is very beneficial to our health."

"The best energy substances for humans are fruits and vegetables"

Perhaps you could link to some research papers that support these statements. Your statements are in conflict with my experience.

This paper seems to contractict your comment about grain. http://www.nutritionandmetabolism.com/content/3/1/39

I just googled "low-carb vegan diet" and there is quite a bit of information out there. I am not sure if you will get much more information here since this forum is pretty much coming from the position that removing all animal products from the diet appears to be least helpful in the long run.

But I have not spent much time looking and I suppose I would just take my own diet and switch out the meat and keep adjusting up the nuts, seeds, tofu, avocados... until I am getting enough fat and protein.

Someone mentioned Cyndi Norwitz on a forum so might be somewhere to start...

Both Cyndi and Miriam have chemical sensitivities and react to dairy and gluten. Miriam is also reactive to eggs, oranges/grapefruit, chocolate, and some unknown substance that gave her her first and only anaphylatic episode. Cyndi also reacts to preservatives, too many carbs, canned fish, raw apples, and doesn???t eat meat. Michael has no allergies/reaction but doesn???t eat pork or tons of carbs and rarely eats dairy.

You can go high fat with nuts and seeds, avocados and plenty of vegetable oils. But the only recommendable vegetable oils would be coconut, olive and flaxseed/linseed. Maybe some other less well known oils could be advisable. Most forms of vegetable oils are really high in omega-6 which seems to be pretty bad according the actual research, so not very advisable.

For protein, I guess algae, hemp and some powdered forms from rice maybe. You could also have plenty of soy/peanut protein but you know they're pretty banned in paleo. Seitan, tofu and Tempeh are also high vegan protein/fat sources but here most won't touch them for obvious reasons.

But possible? Yep, it is! Optimal? I don't think so IMHO.

Plant based diet is very beneficial to our health. The best energy substances for humans are fruits and vegetables, and it is not necessary to stick only to low carbohydrate diets. Eating low carb doesn’t mean that you have to avoid grains or vegetables; it is just like a little bit digging of high carb food. To educate you about both the pros and cons of low carb diets, a blogger Boris Wolfman has shared his personal experience on his blog which might be help to you.

Coconut, nuts, olives and avocados. I think though you'd have to frame vegan low-carb/high-fat in different macros than paleo low-carb/high-fat. If you could get fat > carbs in a vegan diet, I'd probably qualify that as high-fat/low-carb vegan.
