Eating plant-based foods can help you lose weight, lower cholesterol and reduce your risk of heart disease. As per latest research, diets higher in plant foods and lower in animal foods were allied with a lower risk of cardiovascular illness and mortality in a general population.

Researchers have studied the connection between plant-based food intake and various ailments in many studies. It is positively found that eating more fruits, vegetables and whole grains actually help to improve cardiovascular health.

Switching up a carb, sugar and protein-heavy diet to one that's rich in plant-based foods takes inventiveness and planning. But resolving to do better for your heart is a great first step. Most of us don't eat enough plant food, which is so important for heart health. In a plant-based diet, you can eat virtually unlimited amounts of fresh or frozen fruits and veggies. Whole grains, legumes (beans), healthy oils, seeds and nuts round out a plant-based diet.

Going plant-forward is stress-free than ever these days. Start by searching out some alluring vegetarian recipes that are easy to prepare. Choose ingredients and flavors you know your family will enjoy. Experiment with a meatless meal once a week, then add more days as you get used to it. Odds are good that you will get used to it. Your heart health and your midriff might get used to it too.

So switch to plant based diet to improve your cardiovascular health.
