There are many different types of vegetarians. At its core, a vegetarian diet consists of fruits, vegetables, legumes, seeds, nuts and plant-based proteins. You won’t find meat or seafood in this diet! Each portion is perfectly sized to be no more than 800 calories and filled with protein and fiber. You’ll enjoy good fats and have your unique nutritional needs supported.
Stay healthy with fiber, vitamins C and E, folic acid, magnesium, unsaturated fat, and a multitude of phytonutrients. On average, vegetarians have lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure and healthier hearts. The body easily digests nutrient-dense vegetarian options and allows you to feel energized throughout the day. Vegetarian diets are largely cholesterol-free, reducing the body fat index. There is a reduced risk of stroke and obesity. And because vegetarians are less likely to be emotional eaters, they have a reduced risk of diabetes and sugar crashes.
