8 Reasons To Eat Plant-Based

Here are 8 reasons to lean towards a plant-based diet.

1 – Fight diabetes: With 2-3 servings of whole grains per day can ward off diabetes. You’re 30% less likely to develop type 2 diabetes than those who rarely eat whole grains.

2 – Shed weight, faster: You don’t have to go full-blown vegetarian, but sticking to fiber-packed fruits, veggies, and whole grains in lieu of meat will likely leave you feeling fuller on fewer calories.

3 – Feel full longer, in a healthy way: Opting for more fiber with fruits and veggies will hold you over longer between meals. Women should get at least 21 grams of fiber a day while men should shoot for at least 30 grams.

4 – Youthful skin, longer: Many of the vitamins, pigments, and phytochemicals from berries, tomatoes and sweet potatoes contributes to healthy skin. The lycopene in tomatoes protect skin from sun damage, and the Vitamin C in sweet potatoes produce collagen that help smooth wrinkles.

5- A healthy heart: Consuming an average of 8 servings of fruits and vegetables daily will keep your heart pumping strong, fighting heart disease and complications.

6 – Lower blood pressure: About 1 in 3 American adults suffers from high blood pressure, meaning they’re at higher risk for heart disease and stroke — two leading causes of death in the United States.

7 – Healthy vision: Keep your eyes healthy with foods hight in lutein and zeaxanthin with a plant-based diet rich in spinach, kale, corn, squash, kiwi, and grapes.

8 – Healthy brain: Current studies show that 3 different diets among a group of 923 participants aged from 58-98 suggested that one type of plant-based diet, called the MIND diet, helped reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s by 54%. Certain foods that feed your mind include green leafy vegetables, nuts, berries, fish, beans, whole grains, and olive oil.
