Study Reveals Vegan Diet Best for Significant Weight Loss

A new study released last month notes the benefits of a plant-based (vegan) diet for overweight individuals.

Here’s the conclusion of the study:

“Adoption of a low-fat, vegan diet was associated with significant weight loss in overweight postmenopausal women, despite the absence of prescribed limits on portion size or energy intake.”

What’s interesting to note here is that the significant weight loss existed even though the study participants weren’t instructed on how little or much to eat, or how much to exercise.

I believe this establishes that a natural, whole food and vegan diet is not only the healthiest option, but also resets your body to its “optimal” weight regardless of how much you eat or exercise. You see, you can pretty much eat all the fresh fruits and vegetables you like without gaining weight. Your body craves nutrients, it uses what it needs and discards the rest.

This contrasts eating an abundance of processed foods that your body sees as “foreign” (since they are not in a natural state) and either stores as fat or accumulates in your digestive system – both unhealthy options and one of the sources of the obesity epidemic in our society today.

Keep it healthy, keep it moving!
