About the Plant-Based Diet
Plant-based diet followers minimize or eliminate animal products from their diet and get the majority of their calories from whole plant foods, which include vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, nuts, seeds, and minimally processed oils. A plant-based diet is rich in phytochemicals, which help protect cells from damage and may reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. A plant-based diet has proven to aid weight loss in many cases. A wide variety of colorful plants provide the highest number of phytochemicals and nutrients, ensuring adequate nourishment.
A plant-based diet is also thought to be more sustainable for the environment since it requires less energy, land, and water, among other resources.
