Do you want to lower your cholesterol? Or maybe shed a few pounds before beach season hits? Well, good news! You can do both with a low-carb vegan diet. And if you’re already vegan, you just got to eat less carb-heavy meals and you’re all set.

A low-carb vegan diet led to greater weight loss and lower cholesterol levels than a high-carb vegetarian diet, says a new study coming out of the journal BMJ Open. Both factors contribute to heart health and heart disease risk.

Prior studies have shown a correlation between low-carb diets and losing weight, while other studies have shown how a vegan diet may help lower cholesterol. But, this is the first study that analyzes both factors in preventing heart disease.

Plus, the participants consuming a low-carb diet of the study saw a greater weight loss versus the participants on a carb-heavy vegetarian diet — with an average of 2.4 pounds more loss on a vegan diet. That’s all the more reason to abandon dairy and head on over to the vegan lifestyle.

Here are some low-carb, vegan dishes to help you get started:
