A popular article on my blog today talked about eating plant-based meals and how it can reverse heart disease. This is not a new concept; I just think the mainstream medical community has failed to acknowledge that eating vegan is actually better for you than eating meat.
Vegan diets are actually good for your body. Your heart is healthier because you are avoiding animal products in your daily diet. Not only that, but you also avoid things like saturated fats, cholesterol, and sodium.
You will be shocked when you see just how many people in the mainstream medical community believe that eating animal protein is the new heart disease proof diet. In fact, doctors will recommend an extensive list of animal products to help lower cholesterol and lower blood pressure.
What you need to know is that plant-based meals are more effective at doing these things than animal proteins are. Animal proteins simply do not pack the same kind of punch as plant-based foods do. They do have their place though, in moderation.
I also want to point out something that you may not already know. Plant-based foods do not cause heart disease. It is true that they do raise bad cholesterol and increase your risk of heart attack, but this does not mean that eating them all of the time is the end of the world. Eating plant-based foods will actually help you reduce your risk of these health problems.
The thing about eating plant-based foods is that they are high in fiber and magnesium, which is great for lowering cholesterol and lowering your risk of heart disease. Plant-based foods also contain essential minerals such as calcium, iron, copper, magnesium, manganese, zinc, thiamin, phosphorus, selenium, and niacin. This helps to prevent fatigue, protect the heart, and build strong bones and muscles.
Of course, you still need to exercise regularly and take other steps to help maintain a vegan diet. That is not the end of the world. But, eating more plant-based foods and getting regular exercise will help you to keep your heart healthy and avoid many of the health problems associated with eating animal products.
So, I challenge you to eat more plant-based foods and get some exercise. In the meantime, feel free to enjoy eating more animal protein if you like.
In addition to the health benefits, eating a vegan diet also has other added benefits. As you may know, vegan diets often contain less saturated fat and cholesterol, and they are also known to be more environmentally friendly.
If you are looking to lose weight or just to improve the way you look and feel, a vegan diet can provide all of those benefits and more. For example, you will feel healthier, look better, and live longer. Even if you don’t want to do any exercises, you can still get a nice fit body by making small lifestyle changes. In addition, there is no chance you will ever get bored on your vegan diet.
You won’t have to make the same old boring choices on your vegan diet and you won’t be eating the same old boring foods. You can eat what you love and have great tasting food at the same time. Your body will thank you for making such a decision.
Finally, a vegan diet allows you to control your diet, but you don’t have to be stuck on it. You can switch up the plan you are following in order to try new things. When you switch things up, you can experience a wide variety of tastes and textures and flavors and still enjoy all of the health benefits of eating a vegan diet.
In conclusion, eating plant-based foods can help you to be both happier and healthier and to maintain a heart healthy heart. Just remember, you do need to exercise and get plenty of exercise to make this type of change.
