Losing Weight

A Healthy Approach

Of the many ways to lose weight, one stands out as by far the most healthful. Forget fad diets or magic pills or powders. When you build your meals from a generous array of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and beans-that is, healthy vegetarian choices-weight loss is surprisingly easy. Along with weight loss will come major improvements in cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar, and many other aspects of health.

The plan is simple: Cut out foods high in fat and low in fiber and increase foods low in fat and full of fiber. Choose foods from plant sources. Avoid all animal products and keep vegetable oils to a bare minimum. This low-fat vegetarian approach is safe-and remarkably effective.
