    ..............The actor is the latest to find out how beneficial a vegan diet can be in losing weight and living a healthy life. Former ‘American Idol’ winner Ruben Studdard lost 100 pounds after going vegan, Robin Quivers credited the plant based meals to her overcoming cancer and former President of the United States Bill Clinton not only lost 30 pounds but noticed a significant improvement in his heart health issues.

    I'm vegetarian. Dairy is whatever. Eggs are the hardest to cut out because they're just basic in so many recipes.

    Vegetarians are 'less healthy and have a lower quality of life than meat-eaters', scientists say

    Controversial study suggests non-meat eaters are more at risk of physical and mental illness, despite leading healthier lifestyles.

    Thursday, 3 April 2014
    Vegetarians are less healthy than meat-eaters, a controversial study has concluded, despite drinking less, smoking less and being more physically active than their carnivorous counterparts.

    A study conducted by the Medical University of Graz in Austria found that the vegetarian diet, as characterised by a low consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, due to a higher intake of fruits, vegetables and whole-grain products, appeared to carry elevated risks of cancer, allergies and mental health problems such as depression and anxiety.

    The study used data from the Austrian Health Interview Survey to examine the dietary habits and lifestyle differences between meat-eaters and vegetarians.

    The 1320 subjects were matched according to their age, sex, and socioeconomic status and included 330 vegetarians, 330 that ate meat but still a lot of fruits and vegetables, 300 normal eaters but that ate less meat, and 330 on a more meat-heavy diet.

    It found that vegetarians consumed less alcohol and had lower body mass indexes, but were still in a poorer state of physical and mental health overall.

    Participants who ate less meat also had poorer health practices, such as avoiding attending doctors appointments for preventative check-ups and measures such as vaccines, the authors found.

    It concluded: “Our study has shown that Austrian adults who consume a vegetarian diet are less healthy (in terms of cancer, allergies, and mental health disorders), have a lower quality of life, and also require more medical treatment.â€

    The study’s authors have already defended the research against claims that their work is simply an advertisement for the meat industry.

    Study coordinator and epidemiologist Nathalie Burkert told The Austrian Times: “We have already distanced ourselves from this claim as it is an incorrect interpretation of our data.

    "We did find that vegetarians suffer more from certain conditions like asthma, cancer and mental illnesses than people that eat meat as well, but we cannot say what is the cause and what is the effect.

    “There needs to be further study done before this question can be answered.â€

    Eh. How about just a balanced diet with exercise? Some vegans are fat fucks who simply load up on shit food.

    Says McDonald's Quarterly:
    "Vegetarians are 'less healthy and have a lower quality of life than meat-eaters', scientists say"

    Meat or no, everything in moderation. :coffee:

    John Sally is a Vegan, I heard him recently on a radio show and he had some good points about the food we eat but being a vegan sounds difficult to process.

    This...the one thing I agreed with Wig on was when he told all the fat fucks on the show (including Robin) that all you need to do is eat 3 meals a day and you'll lose weight...there's no need for these extreme diets.

    Of course, he's obviously an anorexic, so what the fuck does he know. :dontknow:
