Health effects of vegetarian brown rice meals
Normally, the vegetarian brown rice diet plans at Sunstar’s Kenkodojo doesn’t use animal products. But for this research, I’m adding beef and pork, which are rich in saturated fatty acids and thus would increase the LDL cholesterol level, or more commonly known as the “bad cholesterol”. To counteract this, I’m incorporating white fish and chicken, in addition to the soybeans that are rich in poly-unsaturated acid which will lower the level of bad cholesterol.
I tried to eat 3 meals a day for 2 months straight, and as a result, the average weight decreased by 4 kg as shown on Figure 1, the LDL cholesterol level decreased as can be seen on Figure 2, postprandial blood glucose level (blood glucose level after meal) improved, and also other health benefits appeared.
