Going Vegetarian Really isn't That Difficult
by Webmaster, All4NaturalHealth.com
Going vegetarian might sound difficult initially - I mean, just how am I going to ever give up meat and other animal food products? They have become such a large part of, not just my diet, but also my life!
Where am I going to eat?
Who am I going to eat with?
Will I like the food?
Just what am I going to eat?
As with any major change one makes in life,
becoming a vegetarian will come with its unique set of challenges.
After a while, you will find that your body adapts, and your taste buds change.
Going vegetarian might sound like a big challenge, even one huge impossibility; after all, you have probably eaten meat and other animal-based foods all your life. But it really isn't that big a deal.
It's like when I was a smoker, I could never imagine life without cigarettes. Never. Smoking had become such a big part of my life. It was part of my stress-coping mechanism, boredom-coping mechanism, unhappiness-coping mechanism; virtually everything!
And, the longer I was a smoker, the harder it was going to be to kick the habit. Each smoking year added to the inertia.
Just like each animal-eating year will seem to make going vegetarian more difficult too.
Yet, after I gave up smoking, I slowly grew into my new lifestyle. My new smoke-free and cigarette-less lifestyle.
With vegetarianism, it's more or less the same thing. When we turn vegetarian, we will also have to grow into a new lifestyle. Yes, we will have to relearn some stuff. It's almost like having a fresh beginning.
But with each passing day, each passing week, each meat-free month, and each animal-free year (except as pets and friends!), it will become easier and easier. It will. It will be like embracing a new life.
The most important thing you need to do, really, is to make the decision. Yes, the first thing you need to do is to exercise a choice.
reasons why people decide to go vegetarian.
The main one is to reap the
health benefits of a vegetarian diet.
Once you have made a decision, and act on that decision, then - trust me - things will fall into place over time.
You will discover that you are more steely, more determined, and much more flexible and adaptable than you ever thought you were.
Even if you stray, don't fret. Regain your footing on your chosen path. Refocus and remind yourself of the reasons why you have chosen to walk this road in the first place.
With time, if you manage to stick to this journey, I believe you will find that going vegetarian was one of the best things to have happened to you. Or, rather, one of the best decisions you have chosen to make.
After all, going vegetarian comes with
so many different advantages, not just for you, but for others, our planet, and of course, animals too!
