    Hello I have for a while consider becoming a vegetarian.
    Mainly for economical reasons.

    But I wonder, how will my body change?
    I dont eat so much meat at the moment, but almost some ham or something once a day.


    So what I'm looking for here is a kind of up and downs answer, like a list.

    I hear people tell me that people that do not eat at least some beat is not good for you .I don't know but I thought balance diet and exercise is what most doctors say.

    I'm sure most MD students here will claer this up.

    Ok sounds fair, well since I aint planing to live forever... that doesent matter.
    And since I dont do sports I don't have the same protein need.

    Well I think there is upps and downs with being a vegetarian.
    What I need to know is what, skills that will suffers if I evolve into a full grown hippie:P

    Vegetarianism exists for millenia. Were there any serious negative effects they would be known.

    Depends on the kind of vegetarianism you are heading towards. There is everything from : no red meat but happy with poultry, eggs, fish and dairy products, right through to total vegan. What kind of vegetarian do you think you want to be?

    Some animal protein is good in your diet, but you do not need a lot.

    If you go total vegan, bear in mind that these guys frequently suffer deficiency problems including possible lack of :
    Iron - especially in easily assimilatable form.
    Vitamin B12
    Zinc
    Calcium - best source of calcium is dairy products.
    All 20 amino acids.

    Your farts will stink. I mean really stink. Get lots of air freshener for the toilet.
