1. Animal meat can indeed do more harm than good since it leaves tons of acidic ashes after digestion. Not only that, animals produce toxins under extreme stress, fear, rage or other negative emotions when they’re slaughtered for food. These toxins will mingle with the meat and go right into your mouth. Oh, don’t forget that if the animals are not reared organically, growth hormones and antibiotic residues will enter your body too.
Because of so much damaging stuff getting into your body causing hormonal imbalance and metabolic disorder, cutting back on meat does help to improve your health a lot and thus, fix your metabolism to help lose weight. But 7 days of meat-free diet is not enough to see much weight loss result especially when your body has been heavily intoxicated in the past.
7 days of vegetarian diet, at best, can help you flush out certain portion of toxic waste. Your body needs to be cleansed at least 50-70% (depending on individuals’ lifestyle) before you can start losing weight.
Hence, I suggest making a vegetarian weight loss meal plan for 4 weeks. This should help you lose some good pounds. But keep it going because once you go back to your meat diet, toxins will accumulate and metabolism goes into disorder again, and the vicious cycle continues.
2. Vegetarian diet may not guarantee weight loss because calorie still counts. If you do not track the quantity of calorie going into your body, you can easily heap on excess calories and therefore, gain weight. On top of that, you must know how to make your vegetarian weight loss diet tasty. If not, you wouldn’t have the mindset to continue with the diet for fat loss.
Having said that, go find some free vegetarian weight loss diet and learn about the mix-and-match of the ingredients. From there, you can simply follow the meal plan, swap or adjust the ingredients to suit your palate and needs.
If you decide to go without a vegetarian meal plan guide, then you must make sure you eat nutritiously because consuming the right nutrients for your body aids in boosting metabolism. In short, vegetarian diet works for weight loss provided you have both the correct calorie intake and nutrients for your body.
