By removing meat and most processed foods, a plant-based diet focuses on whole foods that are packed with nutrients and low in trans fats. This type of diet is ideal for body-builders or endurance athletes who need the carbohydrates in vegetables for energy more than the protein and trans fat of meat that builds muscle but can also slow them down. Plant based diets treat food like preventative medicine. By eating plant based meals consistently, studies have shown that people employing a plant based diet showed increases in energy, stronger memory as they aged, lower levels of obesity, lower rates of systemic inflammation in healthy participants, and lower rates of type-2 diabetes patients. Additionally, rates of heart disease were 22% lower in vegetarians. When you focus on only putting good food into your body, the clean-food detox is an excellent way to lose weight healthily and keep it off in a sustainable way
