    I’ve been a veggie for 12 years now. Nobody notices. I’m athletic and never had any health problem. I’m brazilian and we don’t have any veggie options here, and it’s still possible if you pay attention to what you eat. I study Vet Medicine in Brazil’s best university and all articles and experiments I find prove meat is bad for your heart and intestines. The only thing that explains ppl defending meat is the agribusiness lobby.

    I’ve been a vegetarian for 26 years. I’m Indian, lots of us are vegetarian.

  4. MikiVivi03 says:

    No one is pressuring you :). You could start off by just eating vegetarian once or a few times a week, then slowly increase it.. Or, you could start off by going pescetarian; a person who eat fish as the only type of meat. This is how I get my family used to my change of eating habits.
    But yes, there will be many different reactions (my dad freaked out, but my mum thinks it’s a fantastic idea..).
    I wish you the best of luck :).

  6. Lovedrawing1 says:

    That sounds fantastic! I hope you’ll succeed! :)

    I’ve been vegetarian for 6 years and this video renewed my belief in being vegetarian. I get bombard with constant questions that my friends and co workers ask and say about meat. Its hard to explain to them that they are just going with what everyone makes up about meat.

  11. Crystal Petrello says:

    Your videos are AMAZING and I look forward to using them in my classes!

  12. 9lizexxx says:

    I’m going vegetarian from now on!

  13. William Shomidie says:

    Please, everyone, research as much as you can before making a choice. Yes, the diets portrayed in this video is a lot better then say the average american diet, but there are reasons for eating meat. You can see this simply by looking at the way humans have evolved, specially humans that have evolved in climates that experience winter. If you have any questions, or you would like to explore the field of nutrition with me, email me at iDrop.TangoZ@gmx.com. (I apologize for the weird name.).

    dude, right before i opened this video i was thinking about how much land is wasted on feeding cattle, and how much slower to anger i am while not eating meat, and how it sucks to eat so little meat and still gain weight, and then i opened this video and BOOM! mind blown. it was destiny. just thought i’d tell you.

  15. jeepster4u2003 says:

    20 years for me! I eat cottage cheese, very few eggs, and drink no milk. I eat mostly grains, fruit, and vegetables. All I drink is water and coffee. I never eat in restaurants except for pizza and a few high quality pastries.

  16. AliceLovely510 says:

    Very cool video!!! Very informative:)

  17. MsAnywaysthesedays says:

    I’m seriously considering going vegetarian. I haven’t eaten any meat in the past 2 days (I know that’s not long) but I have a feeling my family & friends will think I’m crazy for giving up meat. Plus I’m still worried that I’ll feel hungry by not having chicken and salmon to give me the protein/energy it does :S I don’t know…

  18. kissfan7 says:

    Can one get good cholesterol (sp?) from plants?

  19. TECpeds94 says:

    I love being vegetarian. Having protein and iron deficiency is the biggest lie ive ever heard. To much protein is so bad for you it causes stress on the kidneys ect.. Yes of course b12 is one of the problems but luckily i take spirulina powder and follow other b12 natural diets without any medication :)

  20. XxparamorefanxX1 says:

    Hi!, well, i just find out some simple staff contains animal-products chemicals ( sorry I don’t know how to say it haha) . For example marshmallows, I would like to know which are these chemicals? thanks!
