In Vegetarianism-More Than Just a Diet, “vegetarianism is a preference that people have in which they choose to eat only vegetables and other plant products in preference to meat and other animal products”(Wolski 1). There are many different types of vegetarians. The most popular groups of vegetarianism are vegetarians and vegans. A vegetarian is a person who does not eat meat. A vegan is a person who eats fruits, vegetables, and soy products. They don’t eat any dairy nor animal base products.
The Vegetarian Diet To be a healthy vegetarian/vegan you have to follow a healthy diet. Just because you become a vegetarian it doesn’t mean that you automatically become healthy.
Becoming a vegetarian is not always the best diet for everyone. In order to be a healthy vegetarian you have to substitute your meats correctly. Meat contains protein that our body needs, so becoming a vegetarian is not the best idea. Although, you can get protein from whole grains, beans, lentils, legumes, soy products, nuts, seeds, and protein supplements. They are low in protein so you still need the protein that meat contains.
I asked Monica Valdez on vegetarianism. Monica became a vegetarian because she saw how they killed animals for their meat. Also, Monica never really liked meat so that gave her more of a reason to become a vegetarian.
There are many reasons why people become vegetarians. Some do it to become healthy and to lose weight. Others become vegetarians because of animal cruelty.
