Is it possible you could weight less while eating the same amount of calories? Some researchers think it is possible by shifting the composition of your diet.
The researchers compared diets and BMIs from several countries around the world. They found that Greeks, Japanese, and French people could eat the same number of calories as Americans and have a lower BMI. Why? The researchers suggest it is due to the fact that all of these countries have a more plant-based diet.
I really appreciate this research, because it highlights my philosophy again. Small changes can have a big impact on your overall health and life. Even without eating less!
