Fun Fact of the Day: Several studies show that a plant-based diet increases the body’s metabolism, causing the body to burn calories up to 16% faster than the body would on a meat-based diet for at least the first 3 hours after meals. THAT’S CRAYYYYY!!!! And I looked up the other day that even though our bodies can digest meat, our bodies are actually designed to be herbivores. It may sound fake but scientists believe it because our teeth resemble those of a herbivore more than they do of carnivorous eaters.
