There is an epidemic spreading across the globe. From Tokyo to Dubai to Paris to Chicago, millions of people are becoming vegetarians. Eating only veggies if done right won’t be detrimental to your health. The problem is that the vast majority of vegetarians are stuffing their mouths with food that not only tastes bad, but is also bad for you! Being satisfied and occasionally (think a few times a month) giving into your food urges is vital to living a happy and healthy lifestyle. If you are never chowing down on your favorite dishes, then you are going to be upset. Furthermore, it is in our genes to enjoy fat-filled, sugar-filled treats. So don’t lie to yourself and us when you proclaim that Kale salad serves as your dessert.
While the science behind still is completely figured out, the consensus amongst many most ambitious and learned nutritionists is that being happy and living a stress-free life is very important to one’s health. Researchers from the University of California at San Francisco have suggested that stress (which comes in a myriad forms) engenders the release of certain hormones that put your body into a state of shock.
Tens of thousands of years ago when our ancestors were roaming the savannah, stress was caused by perilous situations such as an encounter with a dangerous predator or an inter-clan battle. Whatever these situations were, they were certainly much different, and less frequent, than stressful situations in the modern world (work, school, dating, etc.). Everything is fine in moderation as long as conscious of what constitutes “moderation.”
Homo Sapiens made their name on working together intelligently to bring down large prey. We were eating a lot of meat and a lot of different types of it. Our bodies became accustomed to digesting meat and it became an integral part of our diet. The protein allowed us spend more energy on cerebral activities allowing us to establish the society we are familiar with today.
Also, a recent study revealed that veggie dogs, a staple of most vegetarian diets, is composed up of more than 10% meat. So really, what is the point of trying to be a vegetarian if you are inevitably be consuming the thing you want to avoid. Embrace being a homo sapiens, and make sure you order a nice pork tenderloin at your next dinner. Always employ the BNXH091 philosophy, “an excess of moderation.”
