You do not have to be a vegan or vegetarian to benefit from eating a more plant based diet. In fact many people these days are mixing a plant based diet with high quality animal proteins. Study after study has proved the power of plant foods. Eating whole foods from the earth (aka lots of fruits and vegetables) is scientifically proven to help prevent a variety of chronic diseases and conditions. Plants provide high amounts of fibre and potassium which can prevent heart disease and regulate blood pressure. Also, removing processed carbohydrates and replacing them with plant based carbohydrates/whole food sources help prevent and reduce the risks of diabetes, obesity and more.
Has this ever happened to you? You are feeling good, feeling pretty damn fit and thinking that maybe all this clean eating and active living is finally starting to pay off! And then..dun dun dun... you weight yourself. The numbers haven't gone down or even worse... they have gone up!!! You instantly start to feel panicked. Are you living in a fantasy world where you are actually getting bigger and bigger each day and you don't even know it?!
Cue a mental meltdown and all your worries and negative thoughts spiralling out of control aaaaahhhhhhhhhhh...... and scene, your day is ruined.
Ok, calm down. I am sorry if you were triggered there, but I am here to tell you something I want you to remember forever....IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW MUCH YOU WEIGHT. So stop worrying about it.

"Health, wealth, beauty, and not created; they are only manifested by the arrangement of your mind--that is, by your concept of yourself, and your concept of yourself is all that you accept and consent to as true."-Neville
