Weight Loss Resolution?

Make a Plant-Based Plan

Whenever a new year approaches, a few thoughts towards weight-loss typically emerge: “New Year, new me!” or “I’m going to set goals and CRUSH them!” 

Then, after the first few weeks in January, the tone shifts. We don’t see the results we’re looking for right away, or we get back to work and life gets in the way. 

So, how can you stay on track as you begin your weight loss journey? A consistent, plant-based diet can work wonders, and we’re here to help make that happen for you.

You can lose weight by eating more food.

Why is Plant-Based Diet so Effective?

You can lose weight by eating more food.

Yes, losing weight does entail taking in fewer calories than you burn, but that doesn’t mean you have to feel hungry all the time. The great thing about plant-based foods is that they have a low calorie density.

Example: A medium-sized apple that weighs 182g has around 95 calories. Two chocolate chip cookies that weigh 38g have around 170 calories. You will feel fuller eating the apple because it weighs more, even though it contains fewer calories than those cookies.

Plant-based foods naturally have fewer calories, so you can eat them in abundance, hit your calorie goal, and still feel satiated.

You can balance your blood sugar.

Insulin is a hormone that the pancreas creates to signal the body to absorb the glucose in your blood and store it for energy and fat. When cells are resistant to insulin, they’re stored mainly as fat cells. This leads to weight gain and low energy.

A 2020 study in the JAMA Network Open concluded that a plant-based diet increased insulin sensitivity. Increased insulin sensitivity reduces blood sugar and the risk of Type 2 Diabetes.

Regardless of where your blood sugar is at, plant-based foods can only help you reach equilibrium.

Plant-Based foods contain 
all the key nutrients you need.

Plant-based foods contain all the key nutrients you need.

Healthy fats, fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals are all abundant in plant-based foods. Each meal that Elephant Plate provides is gluten-free and comes with detailed ingredient and nutritional information.

Our Supercharged Spirulina Saag Paneer contains only 430 calories per serving, making it a low-calorie lunch or dinner option that provides an ample amount of protein, vitamins, healthy fats (in this case, sunflower oil), and carbs. We also offer a tofu-based saag as a vegan option. 

Bonus: You'll be decreasing your carbon footprint by choosing a plant-based diet.

Meat accounts for nearly 60% of all greenhouse gasses from food production. So not only are you helping your body by adopting a plant-based diet, you’re decreasing your carbon footprint in the process. Think of January as #veganuary—a growing movement to eat vegan for the month of January.
