Losing weight is by far not only an aesthetic & quantitative issue but a qualitative one with respect to basic nutrients your body and mind needs for your health, as well. With reference to specific health issues you may be struck with. Read on to learn about the details.
THE PHILOSOPHY BEHIND
Two thirds of U.S. adult population are overweight. Half of those (1/3 of adults) even obese (i.e. more than 30% above regular weight according to gender and age). However, this is not only an issue of aesthetics but rather of our health. Physically and mentally.
Just pick one example:
Acccording to the(WHO) World Health Organization(WHO) and scientifically verified in the U.S. inter alia at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, TX, obesity is strongly related to Alzheimer’s disease, of which more than 30 million heads are hit worldwide.
However, cutting down this risk is not only a quantitative issue of eating less – but basically a matter of eating right. Speak: consuming those nutrients your body and mind needs for well functioning. As part of a health-related meal plan.
With reference to those health issues you are suffering specifically – by developing an appropriate meal plan, accordingly.
Not only to lose weight but support your health with right nutrition at the same time.
Just pick two top rated examples of chronic diseases of high relevance in our modern society: heart failure and diabetes 2.
However, please make no mistake. While vegetarian and vegan food is certainly on the right side of healthy diet, this should not exclude other nutrients your body and mind also needs. As indicated in following.
