How to Lose Weight on a Plant-Based Diet

 Plant-based diets have grown in popularity for their sustainability and potential health benefits, such as better heart health, lower diabetes risk, and longer life, according to study.

  Weight loss is another benefit of a plant-based diet. A growing amount of research says switching animal products with plants may help you lose a few pants sizes.

 However, removing animal products doesn't ensure weight loss (Oreos and Coke are vegan).

  We examine the research behind plant-based diets for weight loss and how to use them.


 Plant-based diets have been shown to aid weight loss in many studies. A major systematic study in Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome, and Obesity indicated that plant-based diets can help overweight.

  type 2 diabetic, cardiovascular disease, and rheumatoid arthritis patients lose weight.


  In another study, the Journal of Geriatric Cardiology found that plant-based diets reduced BMI.


 “Several recent meta-analyses suggest that vegetarian diets are superior to nonvegetarian diets as a weight loss strategy.


  says Arizona State University in Tempe nutrition professor Carol Johnston, PhD, RD.
