16 Reasons Why You Should Eat A Plant-Based Diet

Posted Mar 30 2010 12:00am

I often have people make these statements to me:

“I have to have my meat”

“I don’t see how you do it, but you look good”

“I couldn’t do it, I need my grease (referring to pork, ribs and fried foods, like catfish)”

“You really have gotten small..are you alright?”

I usually respond politely with a pleasant smile and I don’t usually say much, unless the person shows genuine interest.  Lord knows, I’m not in the offending business.

But inside I am yelling, “you can do this, if you want to, you don’t have to eat meat..that’s your choice.  I look good because of the way I eat..you should give it a try.  That grease is going to give you a heart attack..high cholesterol..and who knows what else.  Am I suppose to be overweight?”

Those of you who think you can’t eat a vegan or raw food vegan diet (plant-based diet), know that it can be done.  Granted, it is not easy, but if you gradually transition, you will find that you can do it.

I devised a list of reasons why you should consider eating a vegan/plant-based diet based on my experience and studies.  The benefits of eating a vegan diet are enormous.  Below are 16 reasons why you should consider eating a plant-based diet:

  • Live longer
  • Helps cleanse the body
  • Weight loss
  • Achieve your ideal weight
  • Lower cholesterol
  • Lower blood pressure
  • More energy
  • Rarely get sick (colds, flu)
  • Regular and easy bowel movements, like clockwork
  • Increased fiber intake
  • Lower risk of heart disease
  • Lower risk of prostate, breast, and other cancers
  • Lower risk of developing chronic diseases (diabetes, heart disease, etc)
  • Look younger
  • Feel younger and good
  • Beautiful skin

Your health is your wealth!
