People say “you are what you eat”. Whatever you eat, whatever you put into your stomach, will start showing in your body and will eventually get reflected in your mind and soul too. Treat it like a place of worship and you have every reason to smile your way towards healthy life and treat it like an amusement park and eat any garbage that comes your way, then be ready to face gluttonous consequences! Eating is not just about filling up your stomach; it is about eating the right kind of food at the right time. The debate is not which diet is better – vegetarian or non vegetarian, the real deal is to make sure you include all food groups in your diet – carbs, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals etc.
Try sticking to veggies instead of meat
Animal fat is a very good source for proteins. But research states that it has some harmful effects on your body if you consume it on regular basis. Meat has more fat in it than what our bodies actually require. You also do not know the conditions in which the animals were kept and fed. Scare of pesticides, antibiotic, force feeding etc is always there! So when you eat the meat which is infected with herbicides and pesticides, they get passed on in your body. Your body in turn needs to get rid of them quickly which is sometimes not possible. Thereby causing more harm than good.
Studies and research also state that it is not just the physical body that gets negatively affected by eating meat, but also emotional well being is also at risk. You are what you eat. A meat lover will be more prone to anger, frustration, mood swings; depression etc. eating red meat on a daily basis has severe emotional impact!
Health benefits of a vegetarian diet
Contrary to what people believe in the western part of the world, vegetarian diet includes whatever a human body requires! Vegetables and fruits provide you with all the necessary food groups that a healthy mind, body and soul require. A healthy vegetarian diet with regular exercise routine helps in balancing all the chakras of your body! It will help you in living longer, reducing obesity cases etc!
Let nature run the course of our body and destiny
Human beings were born to be vegetarians – claim many studies and research. Try to include as many vegetables and fruits in your diet as possible. Going back to the roots is of essence. Eating meat once in a while is good but eating it on daily basis might prove to more of a hazard in the long run than beneficial!
