I read this article from cnn.com, and it explains some of the nutritional issues vegetarians need to keep in mind with a meatless diet. So it got me wondering, since protein is the big thing, how do you know if you’re lacking in protein? What are the symptoms? Can you recover with a snickers bar, or is there more to it?
I guess I should take a multivitamin, I’ve never been good at that, but I’m guessing real protein is better.
Last, I’m sure it wasn’t the intent of the article, and I’m probably reading into it, but I’m guessing some people don’t become vegetarians because of the nutritional concerns involved. Meanwhile, they’re not concerned with the normal nutritional concerns of having meat in their diet.
Either way, meaty or not, you have to have a balanced diet and exercise. People shouldn’t stay away from vegetarianism just because they think there’s too much nutritional luggage with being a vegetarian.
