3 Benefits of Reducing Your Meat & Seafood Intake

3 Benefits of Reducing Your Meat & Seafood Intake

While there is an increasing number of vegetarians in the world, there are also those to whom the term “flexitarian” applies. It’s a person who mostly sticks to vegetarian prepared meals and dishes, but who indulges in meat occasionally. The guide below looks at some of the reasons why limited meat consumption is beneficial.

Why Reduce Your Meat & Seafood Intake?

1. Enjoy the Best of Both Worlds

Following a flexitarian diet allows you to eat vegetarian prepared meals with some flexibility, hence the name. Although there are no strict guidelines that dictate how you should eat under this plan, the general idea is that the majority of your nutrients are derived from plant-based foods, like fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. At the same time, you can add meat to your meals if you want a protein boost. This way, you get what your body needs while also limiting the effect your meals have on the environment.

2. It May Help With Weight Loss

Losing weight ultimately boils down to reducing your calorie intake and substituting unhealthy foods with choices that are better for you. That might include using a food ordering service that provides healthy prepared meals or snacking less frequently. As a flexitarian, you might notice that you lose weight more easily by substituting caloric dishes, like cheeseburgers and fried fish, with more natural, healthy foods.

 

3. Boost Your Intake of Healthy Fats

Flexitarian diets are also naturally higher in fiber and healthy fats because they’re so concentrated on vegetables, legumes, and whole grains. These are the basic building blocks of a well-rounded eating plan. Moreover, the American Heart Association recommends several vegetarian components as excellent sources of unsaturated, or healthy, fats. These include nuts, avocados, and oils. Meat dishes, like beef and pork, contain saturated fat that can contribute to issues such as hypertension, heart disease, and high cholesterol.
