I’ve started plant based diet, and I’ve lost lots of weight so far.
The diet excludes; meat, chicken, fish, dairy & oils.

I’m currently eating 2 cans of beans each can has 240g of beans, and I’m including; fruits, nuts, seeds, whole grains, vegetables, and soy milk. I was wondering if I may be overdoing the beans though? Is too cans too much?

I just like having two cans, just so I can rest assured that I am getting enough calories, nutrients & vitamins.

Is that 2 cans a day? What kind of beans? Do you eat them with rice or whatever else is needed to make a complete protein? Why beans? There are other plant based proteins including seitan or tofu.
Make sure you do your research, and get proper supplementation...just eating plant based isn't enough.
warn those around you, you may be a bit windy
If I ate that many beans I would need to be tethered down, with no smoking restrictions in place.

Yes cans a day equals: 480g beans, either red kidney beans or black beans, usually consumed with brown rice or sweet potato for fuel, and then a range of cruciferous vegetables such as; broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel sprouts, asparagus, kale, tomato, peppers, onion, garlic
Butter beans are nice too. They are low GI and will help with your blood sugar levels.

It's fine to eat that many beans every day. Eat different types in different ways, great in a chilli or stew with other vegetables and rice /couscous / potatoes / pasta.
Very tasty in a cold salad, too - have you tried vegan cheese?
Just as a matter of interest why are you excluding oils?

Are you trying to lose weight or is this just a bi-product of limiting your diet?

I would say nearly half a kilo of cooked beans a day is far too much and suggest you try alternative plant based proteins
