Have you ever noticed that healthy, vibrant vegans tend to look younger than their actual age?
Well, there's a scientific reason for that.
Studies show that eating a healthy plant-based diet, along with exercising 30 minutes a day, not smoking, and not being obese, can not only cut your risk of death and disability from chronic diseases by 80%, but can also make your chronological age the equivalent of being 14 years younger.
Why is that important? Because it means that we can live longer, healthier, disease-free lives simply by choosing healthier lifestyles. And of these, eating plant-based foods is the most beneficial.
The fact is, most death in this country is preventable and related to nutrition. It's not rocket science...it's pretty straightforward nutrition science.
And yet, only 27% of medical schools have a single course in nutrition. Nutrition is just simply not taught in most medical schools. And to make matters worse, doctors are not required to take any nutrition classes as part of their continuing medical education requirements.
Most people don't know this, though, and they consider their doctors to be a trusted source of nutrition information. But the sad reality is that doctors are among the least knowledgeable when it comes to nutrition.
But the good news is you can take matters into your own hands and learn more about nutrition than your doctor. And you can learn exactly what plant-based foods to eat to live a longer, healthier life.
Join me for my next online Vegan Nutrition Boot Camp and get essential basic training in vegan nutrition.
