A Plant Based Diet Can…

11 Jul

It is no secret that a plant based diet is the key to life, period. So many things that the average meat eater will have to deal with in life, a plant eater will never come in contact with. It has been proven to us, that not only can a plant based diet prevent most of this nasty ailments from coming in our realm, it can also cure, treat and even in some cases reverse the course of these diseases. Let us take a look at what plants can truly help, prevent and cure us of…

A Plant Based Diet Can…

-Prevent Diabetes. Adopting a plant based diet after one is already diabetic will help reduce the amount of insulin needed and in some cases alleviates the need for insulin at all.

-Prevent Obesity. It is very hard to become obese while eating a plant based diet, the amount of fiber alone fills you up too quickly to over eat. Sure you can gain weight on processed carbs but that goes for both carnies and veg heads a like.

-Lower Your Cholesterol. Since there is zero cholesterol in plant foods and since our bodies make all the cholesterol we need, you can do the math on this one.

-Prevent Arthritis. Arthritis can be prevented by eating a plant based diet and symptoms and flair ups will be much less common if one adopts a plant based diet after being diagnosed with arthritis.

– Help You Lose Weight. Without exercising, the average vegetarian weighs 20lbs less than their meat eating counterpart and someone converting to a plant based diet from a meat based diet will lose 10lbs in the first year without exercise. They will continue to lose about 8lbs more per year for the next 4 years from the diet change alone. That’s a 50lb fat loss in 5 years without exercise.

-Prevent Heart Disease. Heart Disease kills Americans like whoa strictly due to the amount of meat we eat. Eating plants not only will prevent heart disease from stepping into your realm but if you already have heart disease, switching to plants will help cure you of it and in some cases totally reverse it.

-Alleviate Signs Of Depression. Studies show that veg heads are all around happier than their meat eating counterparts. Plus there have also been links found between depression and factory farmed meat.

-Give You More Energy. How can you not have more energy when everything you are feeding your body is full of life and energy? Everyone and their mother says they feel tired and sluggish after eating meat. So don’t do it and feel better.

    Many people who are used to eating typical Western meals with components of meat, starches and vegetables often aren’t clear on what people who follow plant-based diets eat or what the term “whole foods” means. Although it can be difficult to stick with such a diet plan, eating more plant-based whole foods has significant health advantages and doesn’t require sacrificing flavor.

    For many individuals, finding a meat substitute is the most difficult part of following a plant-based diet. A wide variety of plant-based meat substitutes exist. Tofu, seitan and textured vegetable protein are great options for making meat-free meals. The biggest challenge with using tofu is knowing how to prepare it properly. Make sure you drain your tofu for at least 30 minutes. Then marinate it in your choice of sauce or seasonings. The added flavors and seasonings are what makes meat so appealing. You can mimic the same end result when using meat substitutes.
