Eat Less Meat and Dairy
Eating a plant-based diet is proven to help a person maintain a healthy weight as well as lower a person's risk for heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and certain cancers. On top of keeping you healthy, it's also good for the planet. While going completely vegan may not be in the cards, start off slow and try going vegan one meal a week. Then increase to a few meals a week, or maybe even a week of vegan dinners. Once you start feeling less bloated and more vibrant, you'll automatically be inspired to eat more veggies, legumes, fruits, and whole grains. Here are tips to help you eat a more plant-based diet.
