Within 1 Day:
1. You’ll Be More Satisfied
You’ll feel fuller sooner and stay fuller longer, thanks to the fiber in the vegetables, whole grains, beans, legumes, and fruit you are eating. Less than 5% of Americans eat enough fiber, even though it’s protective against heart disease, diabetes, and obesity and promotes good gut health. (Meat products have no fiber.)
Within A Week:
2. You’ll Be In a Better Mood and Have More Energy
If you’re adding vibrant vegetables and fresh fruits to your plate you’re already at a better mood advantage. Research published in Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism has shown that whole food, plant-based diets are linked with healthier moods and higher productivity—and the more people eat, the happier, less, depressed, less stressed, and more satisfied they are with their lot. Whole foods are also typically easier to digest and keep you fuller longer, therefore sustaining your energy levels throughout the day.
3. You’ll Have Better Blood Sugar Levels
Plant-based eaters have a 34% reduced risk of having type 2 diabetes, and that’s probably because studies show a plant-based diet helps control blood sugar three times more effectively than a traditional diabetes diet.
