6. They Eliminate the Need to Calorie Count

The best freedom I've found from eating a vegetarian diet is that I no longer restrict or diet, which means I don’t overeat later. Plant foods are almost guilt-free in their naked form. Your body needs them to thrive. You are naturally full and satisfied with plant foods because they contain nutrients and fiber, which your cells use immediately to tell your brain it is nourished and doesn't need to eat more. During a low-carb phase in my life, I ate chicken, eggs, turkey and fish daily. Ironically, I was still restricting at meals and though I lost weight, I always felt deprived. With plant foods and the occasional egg or piece of fish, I never feel the need to control my portions or count anything. That’s a freedom I would wish upon anyone!
