Marlene Watson-Tara, the author of Go Vegan and co-founder of the Human Ecology Project, educates on the importance of knowing your carbohydrates and why some diet changes will enable people to keep weight off permanently.
Over the past ten years, we have seen many developments in why we are gaining weight. There are ‘silver bullet’ nutritional supplements and new diets constantly hitting the market, but there has been little improvement for the long-term. Many nations continue to pile on the pounds, including our own; recent NHS research has highlighted that one in three in the UK are obese.
The Food We Eat
Food may be our problem, but it is also our solution. Health, healing, and weight loss starts in our own kitchens where we are in charge of what we eat. One path to sustainable weight loss and good health is to eat a whole-food, plant-based vegan diet and improving our understanding of what different foods do to our bodies.
