Researchers have found that people who stuck to a vegetarian diet for at least one year lost more weight than those on a standard low-fat diet. And they shed considerably more excess flab than those who didnâ€™t stick with the meatless plan.
There’s been a lot of good press recently for vegetarian diets. The biggies last week were that a vegetarian diet reduces your risk of chronic heart disease and lowers your risk of breast cancer. Another study spoke in favor of soy, which is a big deal because soy consumption is something that a lot of non-vegetarians are worried about.
Its hip to be vegetarian 😉
