The plant based cook book for weight loss


What Are the Benefits of a Plant-Based Diet? According to the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, people who eat a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, and legumes have a lower risk of chronic health conditions, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and obesity. This is likely thanks to the fact that plant-based diets are often higher in fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and lower in saturated fat, says Hultin. For example, a study published in March 2017 in Nutrition & Diabetes found that overweight and obese adults who followed a plant-based diet saw greater improvements in body mass index (BMI) after three months than those who didn’t follow a plant-based diet. BMI can be used to screen for potential weight-related health risks, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A high BMI may indicate a high percentage of body fat, but it’s an imperfect measure. At the beginning of the study, the plant-based group had an average BMI of 34.5 (a BMI of 30 and above falls under the category of obese), while the control group had an average BMI of 34.2. After three months, the plant-based group’s average BMI had dropped to 31.5, whereas the control group’s average BMI only lowered to 33.5. Plant-based diets may also help people with type 2 diabetes manage their blood sugar levels. An review published in October 2014 in Cardiovascular Diagnosis & Therapy found that eating a vegetarian diet is associated with a significant reduction (0.4 percent) in A1C blood levels (a measure of average blood sugar) in people with type 2 diabetes. These findings suggest that prioritizing plant-based foods may help prevent and manage type 2 diabetes, according to the study authors.
