What benefits are there in going vegetarian? What to do?

 

With benefits aplenty, going vegetarian helps keep cholesterol level,

blood pressure, and weight in general under control. For vegetarianism

is all about consumption of greens and beans, of high protein and

high fiber, which keeps arteries clear and digestive system healthy.

It is imperative that the vegetarian diet be balanced such that the

body is given all necessary vitamins and minerals. Go light on processed

foods like white rice, white bread, and white sugar. Better still, substitute

with brown rice, wheat bread, and brown sugar, which are far

more superior in nutrition value. Others like beans, extremely high in

nutrition, protein, and calorie, and fresh vegetables and fruits, also

extremely high in vitamins and fiber, supply the utmost best of what

the body needs.
