Plant based diets aid in weight loss

See also

Plant based eating is beneficial, especially when trying to lose weight.

The study linked here, looked at different dietary plans to use while going through a specific weight loss plan. It found that plant based options lead to more weight loss. This can include vegan, vegetarian, and even pesco-vegetarian (allows fish, also called Mediterranean diet). An additional benefit of this style is that you don’t have to count calories. Anyone doing this should still aim for the 40%-30%-30% breakdown of carbs-fat-protein.
