Nutritional Advice For Vegetarian Diets
Are you following a vegetarian diet but concerned on whether or not you are getting enough nutrients for optimal health? Or perhaps you have recently become educated about a vegetarian diet and are curious to find out how you can adopt it as a lifestyle?
What is a vegetarian? A vegetarian is someone who for ethical, health or other reasons does not consume meat, fish or poultry. They may or may not choose to consume eggs and dairy products.
The benefits of a vegetarian diet include achieving a healthy weight, low cholesterol, blood pressure & blood glucose levels, as well as improving overall health.
Research is showing that a vegetarian diet can be an extremely healthy diet and lifestyle choice if followed in a nutritionally balanced way. Unfortunately, many people are cutting out foods from animal origin and are not replacing the nutrients with other food sources. This can be dangerous long-term and can result in malnutrition and nutritional deficiencies.
