I switched to a plant-based diet after going on a 21 day- Vegan challenge. 21 days was enough for me to see the benefits of a plant-based diet to give up dairy forever. Here is what to expect if you choose to go Vegan for 21 days.
Rapid fall of Your Blood Cholesterol.
Saturated fats, primarily found in dairy, meat, cheese, and other animal products, are majorly responsible for the rise in your blood cholesterol levels. However, whole-food, plant-based diets tend to be very low in saturated fat and contain zero cholesterol.
Reduced Inflammation in your body.
Plant-based diets are naturally anti-inflammatory, alkalizing, antioxidants, and lower inflammatory triggers. They also reduce the risk of developing other chronic inflammation-related conditions like arthritis, atherosclerosis, heart attacks, diabetes, and autoimmune diseases.
Improved digestion and gut health.
Plant-based foods help develop a healthy intestinal microbiome, consisting of trillions of microorganisms living in your body. These microorganisms are crucial to your overall health to produce critical nutrients, keep your gut tissue and immune system healthy.
Reduced insulin resistance and triggers of Type 2 Diabetes.
Animal protein, and most primarily dairy and processed meat, has been proven to increase the risk of type 2 diabetes in numerous studies. Hormones and carcinogens in meat have been found to harm pancreatic cells, increased body weight, and weaken the way your insulin functions. Thus, plant foods, including whole grains, can highly protect you and, in fact, reverse diabetes. If you are interested in diabetes reversal, read this:
