Vegetärin oder isst du Fleisch?(vegetarian V/S non-vegetarian)

For what seems like eons now, debate has ensued which form of nutrition is better _ being a vegetarian or a non-vegetarian ……….

This is an ever continuing debate . In India , although the demographic is changing, there are still people equal number of people in both camps . There are people who swaer by vegetarianism and it’s benefits and people who can’t seem to live without our usual chicken,salami,fried chicken,chicken curryetc.etc(my mouths already watering)So is the science behind the stuff you eat and after reading this post you decide which is better vegetarianism or being a flesh eater.

Vegetarians(Counter Terrorists):-

Now leet’s get this straight.there are three kinds of vegetarians namely:-

Vegans or strict vegetarians exclude all animal products (e.g. meat, poultry, fish, eggs, milk, cheese, and other dairy products). Many vegans also do not eat honey.

Lactovegetarians exclude meat, poultry, fish, and eggs but include dairy products.

Lacto-ovovegetarians exclude meat, poultry, and fish but include dairy products and eggs. Most vegetarians in the US are lacto-ovovegetarians.
If you are vegetarian , congractulations!!!You are at less risk of

  • Heart disease
  • Colorectal, ovarian, and breast cancers
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Chronic diseases

But even every golden cloud has a black lining in this case border. Being a vegetarian you probably lack:-

  • Protein
  • Calcium
  • Vitamin D
  • Iron
  • Vitamin B-12

If you are an athlete and a vegetarian or planning to become one(especially a vegan)reconsider your decision,you might have more energy as compared to your flesh eating counterparts but less stamina and strength + they dont eat only flash……so they might not be so much affected by the difference in trophic levels.

A vegetarian meal can provide all the essential nutrients needed for good health and is also likely to be higher in fibre and phytochemicals (both are found in plant foods and important for good health). A vegetarian meal can also be lower in fat if properly planned.


youll have more:-

  • Protein
  • Calcium
  • Vitamin D
  • Iron
  • Vitamin B-12
  • Zinc(incidentally it’s good for prostate health-yeah ! for that)

But your atbmore risk of;-

  • Obesity
  • Heart disease
  • Chronic disease
  • And your life span may be shorter bu up to 5-15 years.

The Perfect Diet for a perfect and long life:-

I am both a vegetarian and non-vegetarian.Basically i am an omnivore, I take my daily portion of vegetables and fruits at home and get its benefits but simultaneously I eat non-vegetarian dishes at school which balances out my deficiency in Vitamin B Complex (although sometimes especially when i am ill I take a pill of Vitamin B complex).
