Should I Become a Vegetarian may be a question that you’ve been pondering for some time?
This article will provide some incentive for you to finally take the plunge and jump in.
You won’t regret it.
To get some perspective on just how eye-opening and life-changing it can be, seek out testimonials.
You can ask your friends or family members that are vegetarians what it’s like or how they got started.
The internet is full of information and blogs like this one on the subject.
I think that you will find that nobody who ever went vegetarian ever asked for their money back.
Even if they didn’t stick with it, they still have positive things to say about the experience.
For your health…
We all want to live a longer, healthier, happier and more fulfilling life.
The vegetarian can achieve all of these things.
There has been an abundance of scientific research that has shown the health and environmental benefits of a plant-based diet.
Even our own government now recommends we consume most of our calories from grain products, vegetables and fruits.
When you become a vegetarian, it has an immediate impact on your life.
It will improve your life, but it can also have a positive impact on those around you.
For example, some (most) kids today are not eating healthy foods so when adults lead by example it can make a huge difference (especially in your own family).
This is your chance…
It has been estimated that 70% of all diseases (obesity, coronary artery, high blood pressure, diabetes…) are directly connected to the diet of the individual.
That includes one-third of all cancers (colon, breast, prostate, stomach, lung…).
The good news is that a vegetarian diet greatly reduces the risk of getting these terrible conditions.
A vegetarian diet can help you avoid what most people think is an inevitable part of the “human condition”.
It is not!
You can choose to live a healthier life and all it takes is to change the way you eat.
It’s simple, it’s fun and it’s delicious.
Making a valuable contribution to our planet is another big reason to become vegetarian.
It may only be a small part, but all those small parts start to add up.
When you go vegetarian, you are helping to protect valuable natural resources.
You help reduce the damage to our environment caused from animal farming practices.
The meat industry raises and kills over 8 billion land animals annually.
There are reports of widespread abuse in the treatment of these creatures.
This is your chance to choose not to participate.
One of the worst diets to eat is the standard American diet.
We tend to eat a lot of processed food that is high in sugar, salt and saturated fats.
Most people (including kids) don’t eat enough food that is plant-based which is packed full of needed nutrients and complex carbohydrates.
Statistics shows that almost 65% of adults and 15% of children aged 6-19 are overweight or obese and at risk for some of the diseases I mentioned earlier.
Imagine living your life healthier, longer and more satisfying.
That is what I believe is living life to the fullest.
Becoming vegetarian can make a huge difference in your life.
You will become more vibrant inside and out and full of energy.
When you give up eating meat you are gaining so much more.
Your taste buds become more sensitive and the food is more enjoyable.
You are what you eat so, the nest time you ask yourself, “Should I Become a Vegetarian“, your answer should be a very joyful yes!
