Yeah, what @gettingfired said! Don't know this Dr. Greger but personal experience says vegetarian/vegan diet + intermittent fasting = slim person.
Every body is different if course, but it works for me. Plus, I don't believe I've ever seen a fat vegan :)

here's a long ramble about "skinnyfat" vegans.

the only way i've ever losT weight is high protein/low carb regimes ($$$), and my previous attempts at veganism have only resulted in weight gain (no junk food) but i'm willing to stick to this for a while, till i find the formula

In my experience, what I eat has a much bigger impact on weight-loss-efforts, than the amount of exercise.

What has worked well for me, diet-wise, is to severely restrict carbohydrates, and consume more healthy fats. The fats have a satiating effect that reduces hunger. Carbohydrate consumption causes the production of the insulin hormone -- which is essentially a signal to your body to store fat in your body.
