Alicia Silverstone’s Advice About Plant-Based Diet and It’s Amazing Health Potential
The actress Alicia Silverstone became a vegan 17 years ago, after conflicting with being an animal rights advocate and eating meat. She said that she couldn’t reconcile being an animal rights activist and continue eating them at the same time. But also, she realized that a plant- based diet will bring her an amazing health benefits. And not long after she has adopted this way of nutrition she became aware about the positive changes of her health such as stop getting allergy shots, balanced moods, acne disappearing, body slimmed down and simply glowing look.
Alicia Silverstone wrote a book named “The Kind Diet” where she explains how to start being a vegan and how this will make you feel and look great and will improve your health at the same time.
Vegan way of nutrition skips all animal product counting meat, fish, eggs and dairy products.
Silverstone says that a vegan diet can also help weight loss, particularly if you follow the “superhero” plan that she suggests.
First, you have to eliminate all animal products and start eating beans, whole grains and vegetables, selecting the in-season and local varieties as much as possible.
Desserts and fruit are good in small quantities, just make sure they contain the right sweeteners. Silverstone suggests avoiding white sugar, evaporated cane syrup and honey, and instead choose barley malt, brown rice syrup, maple syrup, molasses, agave, and fruit.
The book “The Kind Diet” introduces three phases of veganism:
• Flirt: The first step to begin exploring plant-based food and gradually transitioning away from animal-based products
• Going Vegan: Committing fully to a vegan lifestyle
• Superhero: This phase is very restrictive. You avoid processed foods and limit nightshade vegetables (including tomatoes, potatoes, and eggplants) as well as nuts, fruit, herbs, spices, maple syrup and salt in order to achieve ideal health.
Silverstone also recommends minimizing alcohol and caffeinated drinks, including tea and coffee. She says that leading a vegan lifestyle will give you so much energy.
