The Diet That Helps You Lose Weight and Keeps Your Mind Healthy



The plant-based diet might just be the best diet you've never heard of (or have completely dismissed because you think it's another fad). Now, before you start rolling your eyes, hear me out. Recent studies have shown that not only is a plant-based diet good for your body, but it's also good for your mind. So what's in the diet? Before you go thinking that it's just a hipster version of the vegetarian diet, think again. Some even get it confused with veganism. However, it's neither of these things.

The plant-based diet is made up of vegetables, fruits, beans, pulses and all that other good stuff, but it also includes animal products—that can either be in the form of milk, eggs and cheese or even meat. Plant-based blogger Plant-Based Pixie recently told me that that being "plant-based is easier [than being vegetarian or vegan], as it's flexible and lets you play with the minority animal products if you want."
