Researchers have recently found the vegan diet to have a dramatic effect on body weight. This diet can help people lose around 1 Pound in a week’s times and also lower the risk of diabetes. The people who have started consuming plant-based food that contains high carbohydrates have shown to lose 5.8 Kg in just 4 Months. The scientists have found the vegan diet to help boost the microbiome in the gut and also improve digestive health. The diet is known to help the body absorb sugar from food and lower the odds of type 2 diabetes.
The vegan diet helps burn fat and increase insulin sensitivity compared to the other types of diet. The foods consumed in a vegan diet are healthy and thus, it is reflected in the weight loss. As a part of a healthy diet, the readymade items which are available as vegan-friendly products actually contain salt, free sugar, or saturated fat and thus, are unhealthy. There are some plant-based foods such as wholegrains, fruits, and vegetables that can help reduce the risks of type 2 diabetes. The vegan diet is found to increase the levels of good bacteria like Faecalibacterium prausnitzii and, in turn, promote weight loss.
Though the bacterial levels cannot be directly linked with weight loss there are possibilities that improvement in the immune system and proper nutrition intake could be the reason behind weight loss. Thus, the current research on vegan diet can help replace the misconception that high-carbohydrate diets increase risk of diabetes and understand whether it is the gut bacteria or the improvements in metabolic health that helps lose weight. On a similar note, the doctors are advising people who are unable to lose weight through either exercising or diet to opt for a sleeve gastrectomy rather than undergoing bariatric procedures like the gastric bypass surgery. The sleeve gastrectomy helps reduce the stomach size by removing three-fourths of the stomach and also lowering levels of ghrelin, which is the hunger hormone.
