Veganism or a vegan diet is the new fad nowadays. Most people barely knew what It was up until the second half of this decade. For readers who don’t understand, this plant-based diet is a diet that involves the strict consumption of plant-derived foods and where the practitioner of the diet has to abstain from animal products in terms of his/her diet. It has been observed that the motive behind turning herbivores differs from person to person. Interestingly, all the converts to this diet are seen to be having different reasons for taking this step towards a plant-based diet.
- Well, for starters, let me confirm that adopting a herbivore diet will help you lose fat, provided you follow a strict regimen. Now you might think that having a diet regimen aimed at a fat loss while following your non-vegan diet would make you lose fat too. But, let me strongly contend and reiterate that adopting a herbivore diet will make the process of fat loss easier and healthier for your body.
- Now, let me put it to you this way, eating a plant-based diet isn’t necessarily going to help you lose fat, what helps is choosing the right food and beverage to consume, which is ultimately aimed towards the larger goal of fat loss. Let me give you an example; both French fries and sweet corn soup are vegan. But it is a fact that French fries are typically associated with the list of fattening foods though it is fully plant-based food. Therefore, eating a plant-based diet alone cannot be the reason for somebody’s fat loss. You got to understand the intricacies involved to better aid your fat loss.
1. VEGAN DIET INCREASES METABOLISM
Have you ever wondered why some people, despite eating large portions of food, don’t put on fat around their belly’s? This is primarily due to their metabolism. These individuals likely enjoy increased levels of body metabolisms. Studies in short and the medium-term have found that plant-based diets can improve energy metabolisms in healthy, obese, and type 2 diabetic individuals. Studies have proven that this occurs because of the favorable changes brought down in the gut microbiome due to the consumption of the vegan diet.
2. VEGAN DIET IS LOWER IN CALORIES
The herbivore diet is seen to be lower in calories than the other non-herbivore diets. During the time of eating herbivore food, the body will be seen consuming a lesser number of calories since plant foods are lower in calories per serving when compared to animal foods. Therefore, it is a lot easier for the individual to lose all that stubborn fat around his/her belly since now, maintaining a calorie deficit wouldn’t be that much of an issue for him/her.
3. VEGAN DIET IS RICH IN FIBERS
Interestingly, People on a fat loss regimen have always been on a lookout for foods that have extremely less or no calories at all; the sole purpose behind this being the binge eating phenomena. Therefore, nutritionists and dietitians always recommend fiber-rich food to such people since fibers have a reputation of satiating the appetite and preventing the temptation to snack. You would be pleased to know that the herbivore diet has the reputation of being highly rich in fibers. According to a 1985 study of vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores, people following the herbivore diet were found to be consuming more fibers than their non-herbivore counterparts.
4. VEGAN DIET IS LOW IN SATURATED FATS
The WHO (World Health Organisation) stipulates that no more than 10 percent of our calories should come from saturated fats. Saturated fat is infamous for its association with type 2 diabetes, obesity, heart disease, cancer, and overall mortality. Luckily, the herbivore diet is found to be rich in unsaturated fats and not in saturated fats, like in the case of non-herbivore diets.
Thus, going herbivore might be an effective way to aid your fat loss, provided you adopt a sustainable lifestyle aimed towards a healthier you. Also, going herbivore is just one part of the strategy; its, not the complete strategy! In addition to it, you should exercise daily and have a minimum of 6 to 8 hours of sleep time.
