Vegetarian

The definition of a vegetarian (taken from The World Book Dictionary 1989) is a person who practices or has the principle of “eating only vegetable foods and refrains from eating meat, fish, or other animal products”. Most specialists consider this definition to be incomplete because they are of the opinion that being a vegetarian is a lifestyle choice which influences tha way one thinks and the way he/she is behaving. The reasons for choosing such a lifestyle are many. Some choose it because of a whim and some choose it because they simply don’t want to eat animals. There is another category of people who choose this because of health considerations, in other words, because this is what the doctor ordered. This decision should not be taken in haste because, letting aside the benefits of the diet, it can also be harmful. These benefits or harms of vegetarianism are associated with the knowledge of the nutrition needs that one requires. This thing comes hand in hand with the food choices that one makes. There are more types of vegetarian diets of which there are three main ones: the lacto-ovo diet, the lacto diet and the vegan diet. It has been demonstrated that the ones who choose to keep a vegetarian diet are a lot healthier than the ones who eat normally. The considerable amounts of fat and protein and the complete lack of fiber in meat brings along a lot of degenerative diseases like cancer, atherosclerosis, diabetes, obesity and a lot other. Our body needs a certain amount of protein, carbohydrates, fat, vitamins and minerals. These substances can all be found in a well-balanced vegetarian diet. This proves that if this kind of diet is kept properly and with the awareness of your body’s needs, it can be very healthy for any body.
