I have always been skeptical about vegetarians and vegans, inclined to rub in unscientific game from the category of "meat rots in your stomach" and "if you stop eating animals, the body will immediately be cleansed of all toxins and toxins." In a word, I didn’t believe in veganism as a panacea initially, but it so happened that one day I thought that I needed it (not for health reasons). I decided, let, for a start, it will be an experience on myself, and then we will see. As expected, no supernatural upsurge of strength occurred. There was also no sharp decline in activity. Now I have been vegan for two years, I think. In the first weeks, my normal weight changed from 55-56 to 51-52. He is stable to this day, he never fell. The skin has become cleaner, but, I think, this is from the fact that it has become much more difficult to gobble up chips or throw all kinds of stuff in fast food. For the same reason, chronic, but not acute, problems with the pancreas subsided. I drink vitamins, which supposedly contain B12 and folic acid. I do not know for certain whether they are acquired in general in this way or how. In wild quantities I absorb beans and other conditional protein. During this time, I have grown by 3 centimeters (I am a teenager), so there seems to be no problem with this either.
Meat is harmful to the body as well as french fries, strong coffee, and low alcohol.
And if you give up meat, then already switch to the so-called "healthy food"
And this is 1. There are few 2. There are often 3. Eat boiled cereals and vegetables. Eat fruit and drink only water.
The results are excellent. You feel more cheerful and less tired. (And here it's not about meat)
But the main disadvantage is psychological. If you love your bad habits, no matter how good you feel without them, you cannot get away from the discomfort that will arise from rejection.
So if you love meat and are not ready to stop loving it, then give it up will not work.
I am skeptical of those vegetarians who are trying to directly or indirectly impose their choice on others (indirectly - this is when "Well, of course, this is your choice, but I don't understand how you can eat corpses"). Nevertheless, I had the experience of not eating meat for several months, sensations - as with any change in diet: purely gastronomic interest, a number of pleasant and unpleasant taste discoveries, a number of positive and negative (but light and short-term - we are still talking about a short period) consequences for the body. I believe that eating meat / not eating meat is as correct as eating / not eating any other food.
