Since late summer I have been debating on becoming a vegetarian. I want be healthy in every way... and what you eat has a lot to do with it. I am a very active person, and are always hungry. I stopped eating fast food about 7 months ago. although I do eat pizza, loaded with veggies still. I don't eat red meat at all, occasionally I'll eat chicken and turkey. I do love fish though. |
My reasons for this would be to improve my health. Not that I am an unhealthy person, but I feel if I control my intake I can create more energy and provide my body with the right amount of protein, sugars, and fats I need. This is the only body I have and I want to make the most of it. Also heart disease, cholesterol, obesity are scary things, and are everywhere!
I eat a ton of fruit and vegetables a day. The only time I drink pop is when I drink, which is few and far between. I live off apple juice, tea, and water. I love carbs, but everything carb I eat are whole grains. I feel like I am on the right track, and instead of banning meat from my diet all at once. I think I am going to slowly stop eating it until I don't want it anymore. I would say I eat meat about twice a week.
What I am going for I guess would't be considered a vegetarian I think because, I would still eat eggs, fish, and things with animal products in it. I'm not sure what that would be called.
