Sometimes people start off with becoming partial vegetarians, and then working your way up to full veggie, or vegan. LIke we said before, pick the one that works best for you and your personal choices.
Now, on to some great benefits of becoming a vegetarian.
1 – It’s just better for you: The fact that you’re choosing foods that are automatically less processed, and contain fewer chemicals means you’re being kinder to your body. We’re told from a very young age to eat our veggies, and by introducing them more into your diet, you’ll be giving you whole system the rush of vitamins and minerals it craves.
2 – Lowers your Cholesterol. Cholesterol only comes from consuming animal products, and some dairy. If you’re not eating any meat or full fat dairy products then you’re cutting out your cholesterol intake completely. HARVARD MEDICAL SCHOOL says having lower cholesterol has been shown to give you a longer life, and can reduce the risk of many chronic illnesses.
3 – Reduces the risk of diabetes. Because you’ll be eating things that are more natural, and less processed (like hot dogs) you’re likely to have lower blood sugar, reducing your risk of diabetes. Keep in mind, regular exercise is really important as well, but a plant-based diet can really make a difference.
4 – A healthy glow. Normally when people say you’re glowing it’s in reference to pregnancy. However, a vegetarian diet can help your skin appear more hydrated. Things like raw veggies that are water based will naturally put more water into your system. Also vegetables are packed with antioxidants that help fight off disease. The healthier you are inside, the more it’ll show on the outside.
5 – It’s good for your gut. You’ve probably heard the phrase “add more fiber” before. That’s because fiber keeps us regular, and is necessary for proper digestive health. Guess what has lots of fiber? Seeds! According to HEALTH LINE Chia seeds are one of the best sources of fiber on the planet! They also contain magnesium, phosphorus and calcium for an added benefit. Popcorn is also a great source of fiber. Not the stuff you buy at the movies, unfortunately that treat is usually dripping with butter and salt. We mean the kind you make at home, free of any extras. It’s a wonderful, quick and easy snack for a veggie.
6 – Your mental health will improve. This indian based website notes that vegetarians have a better chance of being happier in their day to day, than those who eat meat. They continue to say that it could be because you’re consuming fresh organic food that’s not only great for your body but can cleanse your mind and steer you towards more positive thinking.
7 – The planet will thank you. THE INDEPENDENT released a story that outlines how veganism could be the biggest way you can reduce your carbon footprint on the planet. THE UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD found that leaving animals off the menu can cut your personal effect on the planet by 73 percent. That is a massive number.

  2. I've cut out beef, lamb and pork.Only source of protein is chicken, fish, eggs and toufu.But going total vegan would make me an agitable person and look pale like a zombie.

  3. I used to be a real meat eater at one time. Since my now late grandmother used to always said that God put animals on Earth to be used. But then over 10 years ago I gave up eating all pork related products. Especially after finding out just how closely related pigs are to humans. Now I can't stand the mere thought of eating them. And the smell of pork cooking tends to make me feel really sick. And I also gave up eating most red meats. But things like hamburgers, tacos, meatloaf, chili, beef hot dogs, and beef stew I can not say no to no matter what. As for lamb I never had that before so I don't know what that taste like. But most of the meats I really prefer eating anymore is chicken, turkey, fish, and shrimp.

  4. I love watching videos like these because it is so much helpful for me to learn because I am on a health journey, and I truly do love my veggies and fruits but there are some meals that I just enjoy my veggies or fruits that sometimes I love peanut butter, and apples and also beans with onions but sometimes beans on top of cornbread, and still no meat oh and also I can eat spaghetti even without any kind meat.

  5. I have been a lacto vegetarian for approximately 25 years. I don’t consume much dairy because I don’t like milk or cheese but I don’t stress over foods having dairy as an ingredient. I do attribute my good health at the age of 71 to being a vegetarian! At the time I became lacto vegetarian, I did it cold turkey😉no pun intended! I have never picked up a piece of meat since.

  6. Eating meat is like fascism, Hitler, Mussolini, Pinochet. Veganism is like Stalinism, Pol Pot, Kim Jong Un. Lacto-oval vegetarianism is Scandinavian style Social Democracy, just the right balance in the middle.

  7. So I have gone 7 days without meat. Some strange side effects I did not expect to see are:
    1. My need for ibuprofen has gone down. I feel like I am always sore but since dropping the meat and adding more veggies my body just feels better.
    2. My cravings for sugar has gone down. In general I would eat 1 or 2 servings a day of sweets in some form but since becoming a vegetarian I have had desserts twice. This is crazy for me.
    Unfortunately my need for caffeine hasn't gone down yet still but hopefully someday I won't be so tired. Maybe when the kids are out of diapers.

  8. why so many labels? i feel like this discourages people from reducing meat (the fucking goal) because they only see two options: [eating a lot of meat] and [eating 0 meat ever].. very hard to make the switch for most.. i feel like it would be more impactful if we took an approach where, instead of saying “go vegan”, we should instead encourage meat eaters to REDUCE. let’s actually save the fucking earth. we need to use the most effective method if we want to change the opinion of people. 🥑
