Doctors, diatesians and other experts say turning total vegitarian is very good for health. It is said that vegitarianism helps digestive problems, control of colestrol, accumulation of unnecessary fat etc. Non vegitarian food are full of fat and oil. It is hard to digest. I am a non vegitarian, but now prefering vegitarian food. What is your opinion about this? Have you ever wished or tried to become a vegitarian? Though non vegitarian do you take a lot of vegitables too?

I am a vegetarian although I do eat eggs and cheese. I have cut back on both egg and cheese though. I drink soy milk rather than cow's milk. I works well for me. My cholestrol is great. It would help me now if I could lose some weight. So that is what I am working on now. Exercising!

Wonderfull. The first response is from a vegitarian! More and more people are attracted to vegitarianism now. Are you veg. from the begining or you became one later? If the second catagory do you get under temptation to eat meat and meat products? Thank you.

I became a vegetarian when I was 22. I had tossed the idea around in my head for several years. I even tried it for a year when I was a teenager because my brother made a bet with me that I could not do it. I won the bet. I am not tempted to eat meat even when I go to fine restaurants and others with me order meat. In the United States I do not find it hard to eat out and still be a vegetarian. Most restaurants are very accomodating.

You are right friend. It is true that non-vegetarian food contains lots of fat and oil which leads to serious health problem in the later part of the life. Now a days i have seen many people changing from non-vegetarian food to vegetarian and it good to see this. I am a non-vegetarian but i eat it only once a week. I feel that too much of non-vegetarian food is bad for health. Eating it twice a weak is not going to have effect on the body!

Yes, vegetarianism is to be preferred to lead a healthy life. Fat is not beneficial to the elderly. Of course children are likely to get nourishment from fatty foods as they are in need of it for their all round growth. However , your meat eating kids may be advised not to indulge in their favorite form of dish more than once in a day.
