I’ve been saying since 1996 that a plant based diet is best for weight loss and for overall health. It was with plant based food and hypnosis for weight loss that I lost over 110 pounds and I have kept it off. After a lifetime of being overweight and obese I never thought it would be possible to obtain and maintain my healthy ideal weight. I am grateful to the Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine and honored to be Certified in The Starch Solution by John and Mary McDougall. If you truly are ready to lose weight and are serious about your health, the Slender For Life™ weight loss hypnosis program is here to support you with a plant based food lifestyle.
Plant-Based Diets Better for Weight Loss
Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine, November 18, 2013: A plant-based diet leads to more weight loss, according to findings presented at the Obesity Society’s annual conference. Researchers followed 63 obese and overweight adults on an eight-week weight-loss program based on five different dietary patterns: vegan, vegetarian, semi-vegetarian, pesco-vegetarian, and omnivorous. Each regimen encouraged low-fat, low-glycemic index foods without caloric restrictions and offered support from weekly classes. Of the five groups, the participants following the plant-based diets lost the most weight, compared with those following the nonvegetarian diets. The researchers suggest plant-based diets may work better for weight loss, because they do not focus on portion control or calorie counting.

The Obesity Society says that “Most weight-loss interventions focus on reducing calories, but a new study shows that vegan and vegetarian dietary patterns can result in more weight loss than those that include meat without emphasizing caloric restriction. Because weight loss achieved by patients following plant-based diets in this study occurred without emphasizing caloric restriction, some individuals may find these types of dietary patterns easier to follow over the long term, according to the researchers.” While the Obesity Society says the basis for this weight loss remains to be studied, Jeff Novick correctly points out that the calorie density of plant based food is the reason for success.

People who follow vegan diets weigh less and consume more protective nutrients such as beta-carotene and fiber, according to a study published in next month’s issue of the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. I have had the honor of coaching hundreds of people with plant based weight loss. I have witnessed their improvement in health and heard countess reports of reversal of diseases like diabetes and reduction or elimination of medications by their medical doctors due to their improved health.
