Re: Chubby vegans can be found...

I think that's only due to the fact that vegans in the UK are fanatical health-nuts, by and large.

I live in India right now and many vegans here have an obesity problem. And I can see why - the vegetarian curries are astonishingly good but can be heavy on oils, there are always plenty of carbs from the rice, chapatis, parathas and popadums, and that's before you've had the chai containing more sugar than a large bottle of coca cola. Why? Obesity is just a surplus calorie intake. Vegan food doesn't necessarily contain fewer calories.
