Whole-food plant-based diet

Can the right diet reduce disease risks?

Being mindful of your food choices is important for your health. You should choose predominantly whole, plant-based foods that are fiber-filled, nutrient-dense, health-promoting, and disease-fighting​.

 

Choosing a plant-based diet like this also helps maintain a healthy weight. If you want to reduce your risk of cancer and other diseases, staying at a healthy weight is one of the most important things. Excess weight causes inflammation and hormonal imbalance.

 

If you eat mostly plants, you remove many of the foods from your diet that can lead to weight gain. Why is this? Well, plants are high in fiber and fiber is present in all unprocessed plant foods. The structure of a plant is made up of different fibers that are good for humans.

 

Leading a plant-based lifestyle improves the health of your gut. You are better able to absorb the nutrients from the food that support your immune system. This will lead to better health like lowering cholesterol and stabilizing your blood sugar. A big bonus, it’s great for bowel management!

 

The thing is, you need to keep in mind that even a plant-based diet relies on you to avoid unhealthy things, like sugar and fat. You need to make sure to use healthy cooking methods, like keeping away from deep-fried vegetables. 

 

As we said, you need to limit your sugar intake and make sure you are picking whole grains like 100% whole wheat pasta and bread. A plant-based diet will help all your body’s immune system work the best it can.
