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.
