Being overweight can lead to a number of serious and potentially life-threatening conditions, including type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, some types of cancer and stroke.
Research has suggested people who eat primarily plant based diets tend to have a lower body mass index (BMI) and lower rated of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease than those who eat meat.
Plant based diets may help to keep people feeling fuller for longer because they are high in fibre, complex carbohydrates and water content from fruit and vegetables.
A study published in 2018 found a plant based diet could treat obesity.
