Similar to the popular adage that says, “different rivers from different directions will join the same ocean”, different dieting options can help you achieve your desired health and fitness goals and sustain it upon completion. We, in no condition, want to start or entertain the never-ending debate on whether the vegetarian or non-vegetarian diet is better for you. We are merely suggesting you the ‘other’ option of being a vegetarian and its benefits. Now, that we have addressed the elephant in the room, let’s deep dive into the Green World!
According to Harvard Health there are many different classes of vegetarians. First, you have the vegans who do not consume meat, fish, egg or dairy products. Then you have the Lacto-ovo vegetarians who do not consume meat and fish but consume dairy products and egg. Followed by Lacto vegetarians who do not consume meat, fish, egg but only dairy products. Lastly, we have the partial vegetarians who do not consume meat but eat fish, eggs and dairy products. For the sake of current discussion, let us focus more on the Lacto vegetarians and Lacto-Ovo vegetarians because we believe these categories are more balanced and can achieve similar if not better health and fitness goals without the associated risks.
Now that you are healthy by lowering all the diseases causing possibilities associated with your diet by being a vegetarian let us focus on the fitness aspect. Combination of certain fruits or vegetables can equal the nutritional requirements if not more when compared to non-vegetarian diets.
Thus you see the perks of choosing the ‘other’ diet which tends to be superior and also allowing you to achieve all your health and fitness goals without any associated risks which can be counter-productive to start with.
