Vegetarian/Vegan Women Weigh Less

A new study of over 55,000 Swedish women who ate little or no meat were less likely than their meat eating counterparts to be overweight.

On average, vegans had the lowest body mass, followed by vegetarians and then meat eaters.

This study again confirms that a plant-based diet leads to better health and less disease. Obesity is one of the top two conditions that lead to disease and death.

Just another reason to consider moving to a plant-based diet. :)

The True Raw Diet: Effects of Foods Most Never Notice

Basically I've eaten locally or organically grown fruits and veggies with a very limited about of nuts or seeds.

There have been many benefits to this but the one thing that stands out for me has been the ability to feel how everything I eat affects me.

I was fascinated with what I've learned.
