I've alway been interested in the benifits of a vegetarian diet. However, I also feel that meat is important (and tasty) too. I've read several studies on the benifits of eating a vegetarian diet during the summer months including a cooler body temperature and metabolic cleansing and rest. It also seems that during these months it's difficult to avoid eating meat due to all of the parties, bbq's, and baseball games. In an effort to motivate myself to give this summer vegetarian diet a try, I thought I'd make it official and hopefully get some people to join me.
I want to really see if there is a change in the way you feel in response to a summer vegetarian diet. Here are some of the controls I'd like to present in this study for the participants.
*currently consume meat product (pork, chicken, turkey, beef, etc.) at least once every other day (at LEAST!)
*are willing to provide a record of current weight, current amount/type/frequency of meat consumption
*NOT eat meat for 1 month (once the study begins)
*are willing to provide a record of changes seen in weight, overall health, and any other noticible changes
*Study will commence the 14th of July until the following month, the 14th of August.
I know that this may seem a little challenging, but it will help to do it as a group and I would love to provide support along the way. I will post vegetarian recipes and other helps as we go.
