When most people think of the word diet, they think of something people go on for a short period of time to lose weight.
However the actual meaning of the word diet would be better described as the kinds of foods a person or community habitually eat.
The Standard Australian Diet (what most people in our community consider normal eating) is unfortunately far from optimal for long-term health and wellness.
Our food courts and supermarkets are filled with overweight adults and kids.
Our lunch boxes are full of white bread, processed ham, antibiotic and hormone-riddled meat, and packaged goods not even fit enough for an ant to eat.

So without further ado, it’s time to get Vegucated, LEAN & GREEN style!
What is the Healthiest Way to Eat?
Many scientific studies have looked at the health of people on different diets, or put people on different diets to see the health effects.
Common findings include:
The largest ever population study on diet is on Seventh Day Adventists in California, with over 100,000 participants.
This study has been going on for many years and findings have shown that: the LESS animal products people consume the LESS likely they are to experience obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol. Furthermore their life expectancy is greater.
This is not surprising given the different attributes of foods derived from animals versus foods derived from plants.
In fact, there are now many studies that have shown that a healthy plant-based diet can actually reverse cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
Why is Plant Based Eating becoming so popular?
Plant-based eating is becoming increasingly popular, with people from athletes to actors to politicians singing its praises.
Not only do people adopt this way of eating for the health benefits, many people go plant-based because they don’t want to support the violence inherent in animal agriculture or the treatment of animals as commodities.
Others cite environmental reasons, as producing plant-based foods uses far less resources (such as land, water, fossil fuels and food) than producing food from animals, and livestock production is a major contributor to climate change.
Many people will tell you they simply feel better eating a plant-based foods diet!
