Veg Diet Good for GEICO Employees

According to a new study published in July’s American Journal of Health Promotion, office workers can lose weight, lower blood pressure, and reduce absenteeism if their employer provides healthy low-fat vegetarian meals. The study followed GEICO employees for a 22-week period on a low-fat vegetarian diet. These participants lost about 11 pounds on average, placing them at lower risk for heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Control group participants following an omnivorous diet gained weight and experienced a rise in blood pressure.

A well-balanced plant-based diet can provide enormous health benefits as well as emotional and spiritual, since it's not only healthy but compassionate and environmentally friendly. Plant-based diets honor our bodies and the rest of God's Creation.
