A Plant-based Diet Can Help Solve the Obesity Epidemic
Obesity in the United States has been increasingly cited as a major health issue in recent decades. While many industrialized countries have experienced similar increases, obesity rates in the United States are among the highest in the world.
With a low-fat plant-based diet you will lose weight at a steady rate and it will be healthy weight loss because you will be eating a nutrient-dense diet with all the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients the body needs. It is also is low in calories and low-fat which helps the weight come off at a steady and healthy rate. You won’t be starving yourself either, no portion control, no calorie counting, just eat delicious food that our bodies are meant to eat.
Just look around the world of populations that eat low-fat plant-based diets or starch-based diets such as 1.73 billion Asians who live on rice and vegetables, they’re trim and healthy. Another population are the Okinawans, who eat a starch-based diet, have more people over 100 years old per 100,000 population than anywhere else in the world, the lowest death rates from cancer, heart disease and stroke (the top three killers in the US), the highest life expectancy for both males and females over 65, and females in Okinawa have the highest life expectancy in all age groups.
