Research continues to tip the scales in favor of plant-based diets.

A new study published by the journal Menopause found that a low-fat diet consisting primarily of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains helped postmenopausal women both lose weight and manage night sweats and hot flashes.

Researchers studied more than 17,000 postmenopausal women from the Women’s Health Initiative Dietary Modification trial, placing them in either a group supported to make specific dietary changes or a control group who received no support and minimal nutritional information. Women whose diets were low-fat and heavy in whole grains and plants were three times as likely to lose weight as compared to the control group, which were twice as likely to gain weight. Women who lost weight also experienced a significant reduction in night sweats and hot flashes.
