Are Vegan Diets Healthy?

Prepare to be surprised

A a plant-based diet is the only diet to have ever been proven to not just to stop, but also to reverse heart disease. In all honesty, plants have the power to not only prevent but also to treat and even reverse our most lethal diseases such as heart disease and type-2 diabetes.

How can plants be so powerful? Well, one of the root causes of many of our lifestyle diseases including type 2 diabetes, liver disease, heart disease, stroke and even mental illness is narrowing of the arteries and the build-up of cholesterol in the bloodstream. And what causes narrowing of the arteries? Saturated fat, which leads to the build of bad cholesterol. And where does saturated fat come from? Animal products, meaning meat and dairy. 

There are a few plants that contain saturated fat too such as coconut oil, but the saturated fat in these foods are not linked to poor health outcomes.


This means, then, that when we switch to a wholefood plant-based diet (low fat is even better) we are instantly cutting out the number one suspect of ill health in the western world, namely saturated fat in the guise of meat and dairy. But it doesn’t end there. It is not just what we cut out, but also what we start to eat more of instead. There has been enormous progress made in the field of nutrition science and some of the findings are very exciting.

When I found out how powerful a plant-based diet could be for health, I wanted to learn more and more. I read books, listened to health podcasts and tried to fill the gaps in my knowledge. I went from almost pure ignorance to someone on a mission to find out what I could do to stay healthy for me and my family.

Make no mistake, a plant-based diet is the most healthy diet that exists.
