topic, much like politics or religion is one of those i've seen get heated very very quickly around the old table, and so - good members of bts -
what's your opinion?
Is killing animals justified all in the name of "it tastes good, yummy"?
aside from the fact that you can't live on lettuce (no nutrients)...
I eat no animal products (meat, eggs, cheese or dairy) except fish. I also don't eat any pre-packaged foods containing fake ingredients (corn syrup,
high fructose corn syrup, maltose corn syrup, high maltose corn syrup, colors [red 40, blue 2, etc.], and no natural or artificial flavors). I'm
almost an Organic Vegan (except for the fish!)
I've been this way for about 6-7 months. And in that time I've lost 55 pounds!!!
I'm to my rightful body weight now. I think not eating junk makes your body realize where it should be. I don't even excercise and I'm 6'2" and
160 lbs now. Not a gross 215...
I have nothing against eating meat (I eat fish after all), but too much of it is extremeley high in fat and cholesterol. I think there's a
misconception, that you need to get your protein from meat. That's highly inaccurate.
foods such as whole grains (brown rice, whole wheat, barley, rye, buckwheat, millet etc.), legumes (dried beans and peas), nuts, seeds and vegetables,
you will be combining foods with different amino acids and getting ample, complete protein. Tofu, texturized vegetable protein, and tempeh are soy
bean products that contain a concentrated amount of protein. They provide a good complement to other plant-based food, but are not essential to a
I dunno. Some people eat tons of meat and they're healthy. I guess it all depends on your genetic make-up. I know it's not great for my body...
