How to Make the Switch to a Plant-Based Lifestyle


Nafsika Antypas Notable Quotes

“What I like to say about a plant-based diet is, you’re eating whole foods and everything, you’re automatically going to lose weight because you’re just eating healthier, you’re not eating saturated fats and cholesterol. I believe, with a plant-based diet, 80% is what you eat and 20% is exercise, so you really don’t have to be going to the gym everyday like crazy just to lose weight. It’s good, and it’ll help you, but you’ll lose exactly what you need to lose.”

Episode Summary

Different diets work for different people—from the Mediterranean diet, to the ketogenic diet, to the carnivore diet, and the vegan diet, there’s no one size fits all when it comes to health and nutrition. And even within these diets, there needs to be a level of customization to accommodate each individual’s needs and goals.

In this episode of This Podcast Burns Fat, we’re talking to the writer, host, and executive producer of Plant-Based by Nafsika, Nafsika Antypas to share how she turned vegan overnight, the benefits of going vegan, and how switching to a vegan diet can help with weight loss.
