I grew up in a meat eating household, we ate steaks, chicken and pork. Our vegetables comprised of a continuous, never ending pot of thawed frozen carrots, broccoli and cauliflower. My mother never seasoned and always steamed them. By the age of 12 I was completely over it. As an adult I have come to discover the many different varieties of vegetables and the different ways they can be prepared. If you are deciding to go vegetarian I would highly suggest doing research before starting your new endeavor. This is important to ensure you have a proper plan to get all the nutrients and vitamins your body needs. There are many benefits to ditching the meat and having a more raw diet.
Vegetarians usually have lower body weight then those who have a meat based diet. If you are dealing with weight issues and looking to loose some added pounds, vegetarianism is a great natural way to do so without really dieting. Being a vegetarian may also have an affect on your risk of diseases such as; heart disease, diabetes and forms of cancer. In the recent years many people are learning all the horrible things they are injecting into animals to make them fatter so they can get bigger animals and sell more meat. It is true you are what you eat and when you eat foods that are genetically grown and processed you are also receiving whatever chemicals they use.
If you have questions regarding diet I would suggest seeing a nutritionist like San Deigo Chiropractor Dr. Henry Wong. He can help answer your questions about diet and what foods can work best for your body. Many San Diego Chiropractors are also adding nutrition into their practices to help people find more solutions to bad eating habits. Remember before starting any changes in your diet do your research and ask a professional for advise.
