Especially in today’s world, where it’s easy to overindulge in fast food, sugar treats, extravagant (high fat and high sugar) beverages and spend too much time on the couch, it can be a difficult task losing weight.

In the beginning, it can be incredibly arduous saying “no” to highly processed, low-quality foods, but over time the process becomes easier. Best of all, losing weight to improve overall health results in one feeling better than ever, as their likelihood of developing diseases of affluence decreases. Additionally, annoyances such as achy joints and sleep apnea may dissipate.
By adopting a plant-based diet, drinking plenty of water, being active for 30-45 minutes approximately 4-5 days a week, and embracing a more positive mentality, it is possible to lose a healthy amount of weight in a sustainable way. Delicious, vegetarian recipes make the process even easier.
