Keep trim, stay healthy and live longer
A HAPPIER HEART
Studies show that people following a plant-based or vegetarian diet generally have a lower risk of heart disease. Plant-based diets contain less artery-clogging saturated fats.
LOWER COLON CANCER RISK
Research shows a plant-based diet can reduce your risk of developing colon cancer. Adding fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids to your diet at least once a week can further lower your cancer risk, studies show.
IMPROVED BLOOD SUGAR CONTROL
A study review on type 2 diabetes found a plantbased diet boosts glycaemic control – your body’s ability to keep sugar within a healthy range. The benefit may be due to a higher intake of fibre.
A review in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
found that participants in several studies who ate pulses every day lost an average of 0.75 lbs over six weeks.
