Going plant-based is not so much a diet, but a general approach to healthy eatingthat helps you drop excess weight and still enjoy great food. In essence, it’s about eating more plant-based foods and fewer animal-based ones for the majority (if not all) of the time and experiencing the positive side-effect of losing pounds while having a more complete, balanced diet. You’ll be amazed at how great you look and feel, too.
Aside from many of the preventative health benefits being researched on an on-going basis, a plant-based diet is a hugely successful way to keep weight off long-term. This is something that we need to seriously take into consideration as the US (and increasingly other developed countries) struggle with a momentous obesity epidemic. During controlled studies it was shown that the particular Go Healthy way of plant-based, whole food eating is more effective for weight loss than other types of commonly tried diets and that even when individuals don’t follow a plant-based diet perfectly, they still lose more weight than they would on a standard Western diet.
Losing weight doesn't have to be a result of calorie counting or constant restriction when you eat plant-based. Use the Go-Healthy App to find the best plant-based food in your area (at restaurants or more generally, recipes to try at home) and see how easy it is to make this change in your life. The greatest part is that there is no need to skip out on your favourite restaurants, dishes or social events if you know what and how to order.
