01/7Vegan diet plan
Here’s some news for all foodies out there. It turns out that going vegan might have multiple health benefits for you! According to a new study published in the journal Nutrients, a vegan diet helps promote beneficial gut hormones that are responsible for regulating blood sugar, satiety and weight.
A recent study found researchers comparing vegan meal with meals containing meat and cheese on hormone levels in 60 men, of whom 20 were obese, 20 had type 2 diabetes and 20 who were healthy. The meals contained the same amount of calories and ratio of macronutrients. It was found that the vegan meal increased beneficial gastrointestinal hormones in all three groups when compared with the non-vegan meal. Previous studies have shown that plant-based diets are beneficial for weight loss and that those following it have approximately half the risk of developing diabetes, compared with non-vegetarians. Furthermore, the study found participants across all three groups saying that the vegan meal increased satiety, or feelings of after-meal satisfaction.
