Health Benefits of Plant-Based Lifestyles
So, why go plant-based? Because of all the benefits! Not only does it have some amazing environmental benefits when you begin reducing your animal consumption and shop from local farmers, but you get an excellent amount of health benefits as well.
It Encourages Whole, Clean Foods
Simply put, going on a plant-based diet is going to encourage you to eat much healthier in general. Not only do you reduce meat and dairy consumption, but you will eat a lot more unprocessed, whole foods. It’s hard not to see the health benefits in this alone. While it is okay to eat processed foods in limited amounts, when the majority of your food is packaged or frozen, you are getting any number of preservatives and artificial ingredients in your body.
You Will Feel Better
Many people have also mentioned how much better they feel when they go plant-based. When you have more whole, clean foods from plants, you start getting more energy, you feel lighter, and suddenly your digestion is more regular. With plant-based diets, you have more fibre which can keep your digestion system running smoothly, plus in general you feel better with more real food.
You May Lose Weight
While it is not meant as a weight loss diet, it is not uncommon for people to start losing weight more easily. When you begin to reduce your red meat and fish, dairy, and cheese, you naturally consume less calories in general. You may also find that with more veggies and other plant-based foods, you stay fuller for longer, reducing unnecessary snacking and keeping you from overeating during each meal.
It Boosts Vitamins and Nutrients
Just think of all the nutrients you will get by eating more fruits and veggies, whole grains, and all the other plant-based foods. While foods that come from animals also contain a lot of nutrients, plant-based options tend to be more nutrient-dense, without the additives, hormones, and preservatives. You will get more than your 5 recommended servings a day, and it is easy to get enough iron and protein even if you decide to go completely meatless.
Lower Cholesterol and Blood Pressure
If you have a problem with your blood pressure or cholesterol, going plant-based can be really beneficial for you. What you will notice is that a lot of the foods recommended for these types of health issues end up being plant-based. Your doctor will likely ask you to incorporate more fruits and veggies, whole grains, and healthy fats into your diet, reducing red meat, cheese, and dairy. It’s really easy to do just by switching to a plant-based diet now.
You Learn What a Balanced Meal Looks Like
You will also learn more about how to balance your meals, since you pay more attention to what you are eating to fuel your body. No matter what diet people are following, balance is essential. It is important that you get most, if not all, of your nutrients from food, and this is hard to do when you don’t eat well balanced meals.
