Thinking About Slowly Going Meatless?

Without a doubt, eating right is a very important component of taking care of yourself to help keep diseases at bay.  Some of you may even want to start learning towards a vegetarian or meatless manner of eating. The good news is this...the time to start is right now. No need to wait. No need to wait for Monday to roll around to eat meatless. Start today or tomorrow.  No need to wait for January 1 to roll around in order to start eating more plant based.

Certainly for some people, if just practicing one day a week of eating meatless is where you want to start for a few weeks or even a few months, then choose the day of the week that you would want to celebrate that meatless day on a regular basis.  Or guess what?  Why not rotate the days of the week for that one day of the week to go meatless.  Make this decision more tailored made for you.  Don't go with a fad.  The more you make this decision to go meatless on your own reasonable terms, this will enable you to create a more solid foundation to work off of.  When this solid foundation is established, you will then be able to move on and make other permanent healthy changes. However, if going meatless one day a week to start off with works best for you on a Monday and it's easier for you to remember, then by all means...go for it! The bottom line is this, don't put off making small changes to contribute to the healthier 2013 you!

With obesity predicted to affect more than 50 percent of the population in the next 40 years, the age of ‘fad diets’ and ‘quick weight loss’ has boomed to epic proportions. From the apple cider diet to the Quantum Wellness, to the 48 Hour Miracle diet, each of these weight loss programs all claim to promote immediate weight loss and increased vitality.
This is simply not correct. Fruits, veggies, whole grain, nut products, dried beans as well as oils, many include proteins. Meats in fact has high levels of sodium, fat and salt, particularly in red meat which is not so healthy due to its high levels of cholesterol. Whole grain, nuts, oils, and dried beans in fact onsist of more proteins than in meat products. Your own body requires at least 25 grams of protein per day ,so it is obvious you do not haveto eat only meat to obtain your day-to-day allowance.
