It’s that time of year where everyone is looking for the best diet to lose weight. One question that comes up is if a vegan diet is better than a paleo diet for weight loss. This is a question that keeps getting asked again and again.
The first thing we as vegans would say is that a vegan diet is better than any other diet because it doesn’t harm animals. Any way of eating that shows love and compassion should always win out over some diet based on macros and calories.
Here is some solid Vegan research. Doctors studied the effects of a Vegan diet compared to the Paleo diet, Mediterranean diet and the Dash diet. They were mainly looking for which diet would have the best benefits of weight loss and heart health. This study was conducted on real people, not lab animals. The results of the study may surprise some people.
Watch the short video for the results. I was pretty surprised by which one came in 2nd and 3rd. Pay close attention to the findings about cholesterol at the :50 second mark!!
