I wanted a healthier lifestyle, so I decided to change to a whole foods and plant based diet.

Personally Iโ€™m a vegetarian, but for anyone who isnโ€™t ready for that, just know that choosing whole foods for the benefits they bring is one of the best decisions you can make.

Here are 7 benefits of a whole foods and plant based diet!

1. Disease Prevention

Iโ€™m not going to tell you that a whole foods and plant based diet is going to solve all your problems, but it can help prevent or reduce the chances of suffering from some diseases.

A whole foods and plant based diet is said to lower cholesterol and type 2 diabetes just because it's not as high in non essential fats and sugars as a diet that includes processed foods..

If youโ€™re someone who knows that heart diseases and diabetes runs in your family, I suggest just checking out a whole foods and plant based diet.

2. Cancer Fighting Agents

A whole foods and plant based diet helps to prevent cancer.2

The phytochemicals in plant foods are said to aid in preventing breast cancer, as well as prostate and colon cancer.2

If changing your diet can slightly decrease the chances of getting cancer, I encourage you to try it!

3. Healthier Forms of Protein

Iโ€™ve heard countless times that if youโ€™re a vegetarian you canโ€™t get enough protein, but if youโ€™re on a proper whole foods and plant based diet then you have nothing to worry about!

The body can break down plant protein and distribute and use it faster than it can animal protein.

4. Beneficial for Intestines

One of my favorite things about a whole foods and plant based diet is that it allows you to seemingly eliminate any of the issues you have with constipation.

The natural nutrients that are in this type of diet helps to soften the stool.

I know that may be a little too much information, but itโ€™s necessary to know!
