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.
