Should I replace animal dairy with plant-based alternatives to improve my weight loss?
Asked 4 months ago
I was recently diagnosed with diabetes and want to completely change my eating habits. My doctor advised me to try a plant-based diet to lose weight and potentially reverse the effects of the condition. I enjoy dairy products but am unsure whether to choose plant-based milk or animal dairy. Which is superior for weight loss?

While plant-based diets may be more beneficial for weight loss, there is more evidence in favour of animal dairy against plant-based milk. One research found that animal dairy contains anti-appetizing peptides which can assist in weight loss, unlike plant-based alternatives. Ideally, a combination of both animal and plant-based meals may be the best for weight loss.
