A Plant Based Diet? 12 Reasons Why You Should Switch Now!



You’ve decided that you’re done with feeling crummy!  But there is so much advice and so many suggestions on how to fix what ails you!  So now you’re  probably feeling completely overwhelmed as well as crummy!  “What can I do?” you ask and I say,  adopt a plant based diet!  That’s my advice!


Ageless at Sixty: Plant Based? 12 Reasons You Should Start Now!


The basis of all life are  the marvellous, beautiful plants that surround us.  They give us oxygen and they convert the energy of the sun into something that’s useable to us.  By some magical science, they turn that sunshine into the vitamins, fibre and the minerals that we need!  Here are 12 reasons why you need to make this change now!


A plant based diet:
1.   helps you lose weight or maintain a healthy weight
2.   gives you more fibre which adds bulk and water to the digestive tract to keep things moving.
3.   lowers your blood pressure
4.   provides almost every nutrient that you need to be healthy.
5.   whole foods which is the complete plant, helps prevent diabetes and obesity
6.   provides the phytochemical in plants which help ward off cancer
7.   reduces bodily inflammation by direct action and by not causing it in the first place.
8.   makes you feel full, making it easier to not give in to cravings.
9.   is a cost effective health support.  Doctors visits, lost wages and medicines cost a whack of money leaving you broke and still unhealthy while a plant based diet builds you up.   Fewer illnesses, fewer sick days and no medicines with side effects!  It’s a win-win for you!
10.  provides nutrients with fewer toxins.  Anything, like cows or chickens or sea food, that are higher up on the food chain naturally carry more toxins like pesticide and herbicide and antibiotic residues.
11.  lowers cholesterol levels 
12.  provides antioxidants and neutralizes free radicals


Ageless at Sixty - 12 Reasons to Try a Plant Based Diet Now

It doesn’t matter either, what shape you’re in.  Your body is so amazing that giving it the right fuel means it can heal itself.  That  means including all the delicious and gorgeous veggies, fruit, whole grains, nuts and legumes as the new  staples in your pantry.  They are the premium fuel for your amazing body!

And here’s another thing to remember!  While the pharmaceutical industry has a limitless supply of medicines that they will sell you, to combat the symptoms of every disease in the book,  

it’s a fact that only a Whole Food Plant Based diet has the power to prevent or reverse diseases like heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, obesity, some cancers and multiple sclerosis as well!  There’s even a significant possibility that Parkinson’s disease can be added to that list!   In fact, a whole food, plant based diet is so good, that people who commit to it are usually able to throw away most or even all their prescribed medications after they’ve been eating in this better way.

With some health care organizations such as Midland Memorial Hospital in Texas, Kaiser Permanente, the Barnard Medical Centre in Washington, D.C. and the Maine Medical Centre beginning to actively promote a vegan diet  to their patients, it would seem that the verdict is in.  And fortunately, the number of people who’ve realized this ‘better way, is growing.

Now crash dieting isn’t  the answer to losing  extra pounds nor will it build up your health, as seen in this post  Losing Weight, 11 Ways that Crash Diets Hurt You.   What you need is a change in how you view the philosophy of nourishing Amazing You.  That can start with understanding a little bit, how your insides  function.   And that’s something you can learn from Dr. Sofia Ochoa as she explains the logistics of your digestive system,  in her wonderful video that explains how it works from ‘stem to stern’ so to speak.  Think of it as learning to source premium fuel for that marvellous human machine of yours, otherwise known as your body.






The beauty of switching to a plant based diet today  is that there is an endless supply of support,  advice and recipes to guide you in this new journey.  Your only complaint, should you chose to ‘accept this assignment’, will be that  you didn’t do it sooner.  If this is something that you’re considering, I’d be so happy to answer any questions you might have or maybe you’ve already begun to make this change and just want someone to bounce ideas off of.  Whichever the case, I’d love to hear your thoughts so don’t forget to leave a comment.



As always, I remind you that while I’ve spent the last 20 years focusing on and learning to ‘grow’ my own health, I’m not a medical doctor.  What I’m sharing here is based on my own experiences and the things that I’ve learned from the real experts who write the medical reports and see the actual patients in their practises.  My goal is to motivate and help others to find the best way to live a healthier and more peaceful life.  Ageless at Sixty cannot be held liable for any resulting injury or adverse change in health status.

    This will be a great support for people who’re considering going vegan etc. Unfortunately I am fussy, very fussy so it really wouldn’t suit me. I can’t limit my diet any more than it already is, but I will say that I do have at least 2 – 3 days a week meat free, so I suppose I do a little bit of it!!! LOL, but it was very interesting anyway for me.

      I’m glad to hear that you found some encouragement here Courtney. Tomorrow I’m going to be posting a terrific recipe to make use of leftover mashed potatoes. One of those simple, ‘do-it-without-thinking’ type meals. I hope you stop by again!

    I’ve heard such good things about changing to a plant based diet. It’s not something I’ve properly considered but I have made a few different meals recently which have encouraged me to go further with it. Some great positives here on why to make the change x
