HOW PLANT-BASED DIETS HELP
Digestion of whole plant-based foods burns more calories
High in fiber triggers stretch receptors in the stomach and people feel full and satisfied.
Lower calories of dense foods, means that people get full before they gain weight.
You need to combine plant amino acids to get complete protein
Not true: Combinations occur naturally in a varied plant based diet.
If you are meeting your calorie needs on a plantbased diet you will meet your protein needs.
