BENEFITS TO A PLANT BASED DIET

 

  • Weight Loss. Dairy and meat products are high in saturated fat which directly leads to accumulating fat in the body. Plant foods are naturally low in fat, calories, salt & sugar, so they are nearly impossible to overeat or gain weight on. Plus they are easier for the body to digest and promote better digestion and metabolism to help you get to your healthiest weight.

  • Healthy Hair, Skin & Nails. Eating a variety of colorful plant foods ensures that you are getting all the nutrients needed for overall health, including strong and shiny hair, skin and nails. In addition, salt, sugar and fat-filled foods lead to breakouts and oily skin, so eliminating them can clear up even stubborn acne.

  • More Energy. Heavy foods like meat, dairy, and anything processed are hard for the body to digest and convert to energy. Carbs, including fruits and vegetables, can quickly be converted to fuel to keep you energized. A plant-based diet also makes it easy to eat throughout the day without overeating, so you can maintain steady energy levels.

 

  • Disease Prevention. Countless studies show the link between fatty, processed foods including animal products, junk food etc. and diseases like diabetes, heart disease, obesity, cancer and much more. On the other hand, fruits and vegetables are loaded with nutrients like vitamins and antioxidants that have a multitude of healthy benefits for the body.

  • Save Money. While many people think eating healthy has to be expensive, many staples of a plant-based diet are very affordable. Potatoes, rice, bananas, apples, kale, corn, and carrots are just a few examples of foods that offer up to 10 servings for under $5.

  • Live Consciously. Eating plant based allows you to have a positive impact on the planet and well-being of animals while just living your life. Being able to connect to a greater purpose through your food shows you how small acts can create big change and this is super empowering!
