Hot dog craving... I'm so embarrassed, any other vegetarians here? - Page 3

post #61 of 63

I've known very healthy people who have lived long lives and never ate meat.  However, you do have to have some knowledge of nutrition.  You need to be sure legumes are included in your diet; without that, you won't get enough protein.

Well, that is true, but more ture of a vegan. Vegetarians may eat eggs and cheese.

I don't think that's necessarily true. I was a vegetarian from 1986-1996. I desired meat, but wasn't nutritionally deficeint in protien. Sometimes I desire potato chips and chocolate...
