A recent study shows that replacing the meat in your diet will go a long way in helping you lose weight.

Cutting meat out from your diet just seems to be the better option...

On April 26, 2013, Yumi Media responded to a recent article posted on VegNews that discussed the weight loss benefits of switching the meat in your diet with white button mushrooms or perhaps a meat substitute from companies like Quorn.

A recent study conducted by the Weight Management Center at John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health revealed that substituting meat with white button mushrooms in your eating habits could increase weight loss, with considerable results.

According to the article, the study surveyed a group of obese participants who averaged 48.4 years in age. The participants were divided into groups of two, with one group continuing their diet with meat, and the other given a cup of mushrooms in the place of meat. Those who ate the mushroom were noted to have “lost an average of seven pounds and decreased the circumference of their waistline by 2.6 inches.”

The findings coincided with previous research that revealed the weight-loss benefits of replacing high-energy-density foods such as ground beef with plant-based foods, or a meat substitute from Quorn or a similar brand.

Yumi Media noted the surprising results and added, “Eating meat appears to be a very big gamble. Your body processes the fatty tissue and stores it as fat. Cutting meat out from your diet just seems to be the better option. Replace it with mushrooms, like the study says, or find a very good meat substitute.”
