Campbell’s Plant Diet
Want to lose weight, but do not limit yourself in the amount of food eaten, do not count calories, remain fun and healthy? Then pay attention to Professor Campbell’s plant-based diet. Its essence lies in the fact that plant products are good for human health, but animals are not. In the course of the research conducted by Chinese scientists, a relationship was found between the development of certain diseases and the level of cholesterol in the blood. As soon as cholesterol fell to the lower indications, the risk of developing leukemia, cancer of the liver, brain, mammary glands, etc. was noticeably reduced. And the more people eat animal food, the higher their cholesterol level. Studies have shown that people who are vegetarian are more likely to have a long and healthy life.
Summer is the best time to take care of your health, eliminate all fatty and junk food, including more fruits and vegetables in your diet. Plant foods are rich in antioxidants, fiber, and minerals. Everyone knows that genes are responsible for our predisposition to certain diseases. Using nutrition, you can control the effect of “bad” genes, for example by adjusting the amount of animal protein in food.
