If you’re like many people, you’ve dealt with weight issues most of your adult life. With this, you’ve likely tried every new diet that comes along.
One diet that has been popular for years requires point counting, day in and day out. I’ve known a few people who have used this protocol. Some have been successful. Others not so much.
Recently, I asked a friend who is counting points, how many points the plant based protocol is. She responded without hesitation that a great majority of the plant-based food choices have a zero point count.
“So you mean to tell me that if you ate 100% plant-based you wouldn’t have to count points?” I asked sincerely.
“Yes, but I’m not willing to give up foods I love,” she responded.
In reality, one does not have to deprive themselves at all when they eat a plant exclusive diet; meaning it’s not a diet. It’s a way of life.
Although you may have dropped weight in the short term with various diets, when you quit the diet, more than likely you gained all the weight back… and some.
With plant-based eating, you can toss out the scale, the points and the frustration.
With over 70% of the population in the United States overweight or obese, the short-term and long-term costs are beyond comprehension.
Let’ that sink in… 70% of the U.S. population is overweight or obese.
According to the CDC and WHO, the percentage of obese Americans is greater than the percentage of Americans who are overweight and is also greater than the percentage of Americans who have a normal weight.
It’s important to clarify that the information contained in this article is NOT at all about body shaming but rather to shine the light on what is causing this health, environmental, financial, and emotional demise.
There are short-term and long-term costs to the bite-by-bite choices people make.
In addition to one’s health, there are productivity costs related to business. Whether you run your own business or are employed, chances are, if you are eating a diet filled with meat and dairy, you are not as productive as you could be with a diet void of all animal and dairy.
Many people claim they could never give up meat. Is it that they can’t, or won’t, give up meat? No one is forcing you to eat meat. Giving up meat has many benefits including improved health (both emotionally and physically), less impact to the environment, compassion for animals and overall well-being.
As well, with the current rate of inflation, and sticker shock at the grocery store, you will save on your grocery bill if you switch your meat for a whole food, plant-based diet.
The health of men, women and children is beyond the tipping point. With disease on the rise, childhood obesity at an all-time high, and families left wondering how to turn things around, one is left to wonder if there is anything they can do.
Actually, there is. You can choose to educate yourself on the benefits of a whole food, plant based diet.
The greatest challenge people face is knowing where to start. Who do they listen to? What books do they read? What documentaries can provide information that will give them the information to fast-track your health.
