There are so many great reasons to choose a plant-based diet but staying motivated to stick with it can be challenging. The meat and dairy industry constantly bombards us with false messages. It tells us we need animal products to be big and strong, to have healthy bones, and lots of muscle. And vegans are often typecast as wimpy, frail, or uptight. But vegans are actually far healthier, happier, more fertile and verily – thanks to the hormonal and other physiological changes that occur when your diet is plant-based. If you aren’t already eating a plant-based diet below is a list of 5 reasons why you should start. And if you are, save this list and refer back to it anytime you find your motivation waning.
1. Do it for the Health Benefits
Eating a plant-based diet is one of the most cost-effective ways to preserve your health and slow down aging. In fact, studies show it is the single most effective way of eating for weight loss, heart health, chronic disease prevention, and longevity. And if that’s not enough to motivate you, when you eat plant-based, you’ll get clearer skin, a sharper mind, improved cardiovascular health, more energy, and a reduced risk for depression, diabetes, and cognitive decline.
2. Do it for the Animals
Eating plant-based makes a lot of sense if you’re an animal lover. But even if you are not, recognizing how inhumanely they are treated and deciding not to support the industry that thrives off the suffering and savage of animals should be reason enough to go vegan. Consider what it takes to get a living animal with feelings and emotions, to your actual plate, and if you aren’t yet sure how it happens, check out these films: Food Inc., Vegucated, Forks Over Knives, Food Matters.
3. Do it to Prevent and Reverse Estrogen Dominance
For some reason, carnivorism is associated with virility but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Animals are loaded with estrogen leading to a harmful condition called estrogen dominance, which sabotages libido in women and can lead to man boobs and erectile dysfunction in men. Estrogen dominance has reached epidemic proportions in America and if left untreated it can negatively impact so many facets of your physical and emotional health. I’ve seen miraculous changes in people who have reversed this condition and am so passionate about helping people achieve the hormonal balance that I developed this free quiz to detect Estrogen Dominance, and these extremely potent all-natural supplements for reversing it.
4. Do it for the Sex!!
A plant-based diet helps raise serotonin and tends to be rich in zinc and B-vitamins, all three of which boost your libido. It also increases natural lubrication because of the hydrating properties, gives you a fresher body odor and makes bodily fluids taste better. Plus it helps increase blood flow and pleasure sensations throughout the body by reducing blood pressure, cholesterol, and arterial plaque. And if all that ain’t enough – it makes you look sexier and more virile by giving you glowing skin and a slimmer-waistline.
5. Do it for the Planet
It’s no secret that our planet is in jeopardy and that the meat and dairy industry is a contributor to its decline. But in case you didn’t know how harmful the industry is, here are some quick facts: factory farms in the U.S. alone produce 300 million tons of waste every year and contribute to 18% of greenhouse gas emissions. The meat and dairy industry also uses up our freshwater supply, requiring about 100 times more water to produce a pound of animal protein than a pound of grain protein. Plus it’s contributing to deforestation, animal extinction, water pollution, ocean dead zones, and air pollution. If you get a chance, watch these mind-blowing documentaries on the environmental impact of eating meat: Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret; Food Exposed With Nelufar Hedayat; and Meat the Truth.
