Weight loss accomplished by high carbohydrate, vegan diet

While it is important to lose weight for health, it is equally important to lose weight in a healthy way. A diet plan with unlimited servings of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and other such nutritious foods// seems tempting isn’t it? It is even easier to adapt and follow and is more effective than the conventional diet regime. It is time you had a peep into it!

A low-fat, plant-based diet has been found to be more effective at helping women lose weight and improve insulin sensitivity than an omnivorous diet, which is a generalized diet regime lacking specificity.

The study was conducted among 59 overweight, postmenopausal women, who were keen on losing weight. The participants were divided into two categories. Half of the study participants followed a vegan diet while the other group followed a control diet based on National Cholesterol Education Program guidelines.

The study participants following the vegan diet enjoyed unlimited servings of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and other nutritious foods that enabled them to lose weight without feeling hungry. As they began to experience the positive effects, weight loss and improved insulin sensitivity, the women in the intervention group became even more motivated to follow the plant-based eating plan. There has been a general agreement that obesity and overweight are far less prevalent in populations following a plant-based diet. In a recent study conducted by researchers found out that 40 percent of meat-eaters were overweight or obese while only 25 to 29 percent of vegetarians and vegans were.

Worldwide, vegetarian populations experience lower rates of heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and other life-threatening diseases. A low fat, primarily vegan diet may also slow the progression of prostate cancer, according to latest study reports.

The simplicity of a vegan diet appeals to people who are busy with work and family. This accounts for the b etter acceptability and the shorter transition time of 3 weeks or less.
