A new study shows that go vegetarian lose more weight. The study shows vegetarians not only lose weight more effectively and it also boosts their metabolism and doubled their weight loss. 

And the vegetarian dieters also reduced muscle fat, which raised their metabolism. So swapping that steak for a meatless meal could help you stay lean and healthy, study authors say. Now that doesn’t mean you’ve got to give up all meat and start eating tofu, but having taco Tuesday with black beans instead of hamburger could help you drop pounds more easily. And it’s tasty too.
