Study Shows Going Veg Is Good for Weight Loss

New research proves that a meat-free meal is the ideal way to tip the scales in the right direction.

A recent study published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition Dietics has found that a vegan diet is a more effective way to maintain a lower weight than an omnivore diet. During the research, scientists at Loma Linda University analyzed the data from the Adventist Health Study 2, which recorded the body mass index and dietary patterns of 71,751 men and women between 2002 and 2007. The results showed that while the caloric intake was similar among all of the participants—approximately 2,000 calories per day—strict vegetarians had the lowest average body mass index, while omnivores had the highest average body mass index.
