15 Plant-Based Food Delivery Services In The Philippines

There are several diets that claim to be the best in helping promote weight loss. Ultimately, the best diet for you is one that is in tune with your health needs, lifestyle conditions, and your likelihood to stick to it for the long term.

One of these diets is the plant-based diet. In the past years, plant-based eating has gained popularity in the Philippines, as various plant-based establishments and businesses have popped up in cities to cater to more conscious and mindful eaters.

What is a plant-based diet?

A plant-based diet is a diet that focuses on consuming food products primarily derived from plants such as fruits and vegetables, as well as nuts, seeds, legumes, whole grains, and beans. A plant-based diet usually reduces the consumption of animal-derived products, including meat, dairy, and eggs.

While there are similarities, going plant-based is different from going vegan. According to Harvard Health, following a plant-based diet does not necessarily mean you have become vegan. It’s all about “proportionately choosing more of your foods from plant sources,” rather than completely outlawing meat, dairy, eggs, and seafood.

Some plant-based diets only allow whole foods, meaning oils and other highly processed products are not allowed. This is said to help further promote weight loss.

Benefits of a plant-based diet

There are several diets that aid in losing weight without taking out meat, so why would others choose to eliminate meat from their diet aside from ethical reasons?

A 2006 study showed that a vegan or a vegetarian diet was highly effective for weight loss, and eaters who followed a vegetarian diet were found to have lower rates of heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, and diabetes, even without exercising regularly.

Vegetarians were also found to consume more magnesium, potassium, iron, thiamin, riboflavin, folate, and vitamins and less fat.

Many eaters on the plant-based diet reported feeling lighter, having more energy, sleeping better, and having their digestion improved.
