Could the adoption of a low-fat, plant-based diet help you burn more fat without adding more exercise?
A study was conducted involving two groups: one adopted a plant-based diet; the other, a control group, made no dietary changes. Both maintained their usual exercise and medication routines.
At the end of 16 weeks, those eating a plant-based diet saw significant changes compared with the control group. Participants lost an average of 14 pounds and decreased the amount of fat in their muscle and liver cells. They also increased their “after-meal calorie burn by 18.7%, on average.” Additionally, they increased their insulin sensitivity, thus lowering their chances of developing type 2 diabetes.
A plant-based diet is the way to go when it comes to improving metabolism, weight loss, and overall health!
