Simply put, plant-based nutrition refers to eating food that originates from plant sources.
A whole food, plant-based diet is filled with vegetables of all colors, fruits, whole grains, nuts, seeds and legumes. We also recommend avoiding added oil, added sugar, and foods derived from animals like dairy and meat.
It is absolutely delicious with massive variety of choices from cuisines all around the world. Unlike popular diets you may have heard about in the news, plant-based nutrition is not a fad or a “diet,” It is a sustainable way of eating that doesn’t focus on calorie-restriction.
Sometimes, plant-based nutrition is referred to as being “vegan,” however this is not wholly accurate. Many vegan foods cannot be considered plant-based because they have been highly processed and are generally not good for your health.
An unhealthy diet is the #1 cause of chronic disease.
A whole food, plant-based lifestyle can change your health by preventing and reversing many lifestyle diseases, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, stroke and autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis. You can also lose weight in a healthy and lasting way.
Columbus Prevent and Reverse advocates a whole food, plant-based approach to nutrition because it has been found to be the healthiest and most protective against chronic disease, including heart disease and cancer. This claim is supported by a wealth of literature and research, led by some of the world’s most renowned physicians and researchers.
