The New Year is a great time to reset and start a fresh new resolution. Are you wanting to lose weight this year? Many doctors and nutritionists agree that you will lose the most weight, feel good and enjoy the best variety of foods on a plant based diet.
I am a firm believer that fat is primarily waste deposited in your fatty tissue areas. Detox the body and watch the weight melt away.
Begin with adding an all-natural parasite or detox cleanse to your regimen for a period of your choice. These are a few that I’ve used and found very effective. Clear Fiber by Renew, Cleanse More, Sonne 7, Dr. Holistic by Dr. Bobby Price or any detox from the health food store.
Sure-fire weight loss
Another sure-fire way to weight loss on a plant based diet is to limit or avoid vegan processed foods that contain fats, starches, sodium and food additives. Veganism is not a green light to eat all of the potato chips you want and still loose weight. You’ll want to first fill your plate with lots of fresh, raw greens and other vegetables followed by smaller amounts of fruit, nuts and grains.
To lose weight and not feel hungry, take in lots of fresh, raw, dark green leafy vegetables which are high in chlorophyll and nutrients. You can cut them up in a salad and have a dark green leafy drink daily. These will keep you satiated throughout the day and decrease your appetite cravings.
More Health Benefits for Vegans
I wish you the best if you’re turning to a plant based diet to lose weight in the New Year. You may also find some additional benefits to your vegan lifestyle. Vegans typically have a decreased risk for diabetes, heart disease and certain types of cancer.
As you lose weight you’ll naturally gain more vigor. In one study, the metabolism of people who follow a plant based diet burned calories 16% faster on average than a meat-eater for the first few hours after a meal. Use the boost in metabolism to increase your activity level and you’ll be at your goal weight in no time.
