As people become more conscious about their weight and overall health, they become keener on tweaking their lifestyles and finding more healthful habits. One of these habits is going for a vegan diet. Even celebrities have been raving about their love for plant-based diets and the benefits they gained from them. One of the highest paid A-list celebrities, Beyoncé, is the most recent vegan food aficionado.
A vegan diet can bring a bounty of health benefits, aside from those that Beyoncé has espoused (weight loss, increased energy and improved digestion, among others). Eating fibrous, nutritious and low-calorie greens and other fruits and veggies have been proven to lower blood cholesterol levels. This then translates to the power of plants to prevent, control or even stop heart disease. Likewise, the diet has also been a key prevention method for diabetes, cancer, stroke and other major diseases.
