This lifestyle works for me because I can eat a lot and still stay thin.
Why Does A No Meat Diet Work?
A plant-based diet is naturally high fiber. More fiber means less build-up in your stomach, intestines, and colon. Your digestive system will operate more efficiently and you will quickly turn food into the fuel your body needs, jump starting your metabolism. High fiber foods have also been associated with lower colon and breast cancer rates and lower diabetes.
A vegan diet is naturally low fat, and contains virtually no saturated fat. Fat has more calories per gram than carbohydrates or protein. By lowering the fat grams, you will effortlessly consume fewer calories.
Why Is a No Meat Diet Healthier?
The number one killer in the US is heart attacks. Studies have demonstrated switching to a no meat diet lowers cholesterol and reduces the incidence of heart disease and strokes.
Fruit, vegetables, and soy products contain high levels of anti-oxidants and trace minerals. These magical components super charge your immune system and significantly lower the incidence of cancer.

Livestock produced on factory farms is pumped full of growth hormones and steroids to increase production of eggs and milk and make them fatten quicker. Humans consuming meat, milk and eggs treated with growth hormones and steroids ingest enough of these substances to cause weight gain as well.
Early onset of puberty in adolescent girls can be linked to the growth hormones in today’s factory-farm produced meat, dairy, and eggs.
Farm animals are treated with antibiotics to ward off disease that would otherwise be rampant in the crowded, unsanitary conditions in which they are raised. These antibiotics are a leading cause of antibiotic resistance in humans, and are partially to blame for the explosion in “superbugs” we are seeing in today’s hospitals.
