Transitioning to Plant-Based Diet

Transitioning to Plant-Based Diet

Many people died from heart disease but more dies from coronary heart disease and while the trend in general, was downward for several years to the point where we were approaching cancer, the two most predominant dietary strategies that are beneficial are the Plant-based diet which is more focused on the same kind of fruits and vegetables: nuts, legumes, Olive oil for cooking purposes, red wine, etc. and then a more of a plant-based whole food plant-based dietary strategy. As a vegetarian for instance you primarily are just avoiding meat containing products. As a vegan on the other extreme, you're talking more about avoiding anything that comes from an animal source, so milk, honey, cheese as well as animal-based meats.

A plant-based diet is one where the vast majority of your calories are gonna come from plants, legumes, and nuts. You would avoid animal-containing products when possible but it wouldn't be as rigorous or as dogmatic as a true vegan lifestyle. Some of the specific benefits of transitioning to a plant-based diet are certainly for weight loss because the vegetables and fruits that are involved in that kind of dietary strategy have so few calories but take up so much space in your stomach it's quite easy to eat almost anything you want without having to pay too much attention to counting calories and things like that and still have weight loss as well as feel full. Besides, all the nutrients and protein and vitamins and things that are needed for your diet are found in plant-based sources. 

People talk about you know when they go to family gatherings and there are no vegetarian options. They go out to eat and it's all meat containing options you know when you're busy and you work a lot and you're on the go and I don't have time to chop up vegetables for 45 minutes and things like that I mean I think these are all real concerns.

There are a lot more options out there for people that want to avoid animal protein sources. Surprisingly, there are a lot more patients out there that is they're receptive to this kind of intervention and want to know more about it and so if you talk to people that have been able to make this transition successfully, they would tell they feel better, that they are mentally strong, that they've lost weight. Some will say, that they've either cut down or eliminated the medicines they take. They're able to exercise more, feel stronger, their relationships are better.
