5 Obstacles That Every New Vegetarian Must Overcome

Think about what you eat on a daily basis. Have you ever thought about becoming a vegetarian and what the steps would be to become one? It is not always an easy step to decide to become a vegetarian. There are a few obstacles to overcome in order to start a vegetarian lifestyle.

1)    Meat Elimination :The first obstacle to over come is eliminating meat from your diet. This can be a very hard thing to do. Some say that it is easier if you take it one step at a time. First you cut out the chicken that you eat then your stop eating pork and then the beef. By making this a gradual cutting out of the meat it may be easier to not miss.

2)   Deciding The Vegetarian Type You Want To Be : The second obstacle is choosing whether you want to be a vegetarian or a vegan. The difference is that when you are a vegetarian you just cut out the meat in your diet. If you are a vegan then you can not eat any product that comes from an animal. This will include milk, cheese and butter because it comes from a cow. The way to overcome this is to simply decide what you want to cut out of your diet. Some people just do not want the meat in them so they choose to become a vegetarian and only eat vegetables.

3)    Getting Your Daily Nutrition : Another one of the obstacles that you will face being a vegetarian newbie will be to make sure that you are getting all of the nutrition's that you need to have a healthy life. To overcome this you can check all of the foods that you are going to eat to make sure that they provide you with a well balanced diet. You will need to make sure that you are getting in at least 1200 calories a day. By checking the food pyramid you can make sure that you are getting enough of carbohydrates, fats and protein that your body will need.

4)   Shopping For Your Vegetarian or Vegan Lifestyle : Your next step in a vegetarian lifestyle will be where you can purchase the foods that you want to eat. Most food stores sell vegetables and you can also check the health food stores. If you have decided to be a vegetarian there are a lot of stores that sell vegetables. Depending on where you live some places have open air farmer markets that make a great place to shop if you are either a vegetarian or a vegan.

5)     Dealing With The Reactions of Friends and Family:  The last obstacle that you may have to over come will be all of the peer pressure that you may receive. Not everyone wants to be a vegetarian and they do not understand why someone may want to be. One thing that you can do is to check in your area for support groups. You will be sure to find one that has nothing but vegetarians there. If this does not work for you then you can decide to stay away from other people that eat meat until you are comfortable with the lifestyle that you have chosen.

A great course that is designed for people who are ready to become vegetarians is called The Vegetarian's Beginner's Guide 30 Day Course . This course is great for anyone seriously interested in transitioning into a vegetarian and it provides the information, education and support needed to become a savvy vegetarian and lead a successful vegetarian lifestyle

How To Start The Vegetarian Lifestyle For The First Time

Having a vegetarian lifestyle has been a popular alternative for healthy living in today's generation. Most people do not understand about a vegetarian diet by several aspects. One major concern for a beginner is the source of protein with the absence of animal products in a vegetarian menu.

The fact is there are many plant sources that contain a high amount of protein such as soybeans and soybean products, grains, vegetables and fruits. They are rich sources of good protein without having to eat meat and animal products. Here are major steps to start a vegetarian lifestyle:

*Step 1 - Identifying Your Motives

You start this lifestyle by several factors. Most obviously, people go with this diet for health reasons. There are also those that are concerned of how animals are treated during the slaughtering process that would consume plant products instead to show their protest against animal cruelty.

*Step 2 - Educate Yourself

Individuals need to be properly informed before embarking on this type of lifestyle. There are numerous articles on the topic that can help you decide whether you are fit for this and if you can maintain this lifestyle. Proper information is necessary help you through with different concerns such as health benefits, risks and other factors.

*Step 3 - Choose Your Vegetarian Type

Proper education on different types of vegetarianism is important for you to choose the right type. There are those meat free diets that still consume animal and dairy products such as honey, milk, and eggs. There are those that are strict vegetarians called vegans that do not have animal by-products such as dairy products in their diets. Choosing where you are most comfortable can be the best way to start this kind of lifestyle.

*Step 4 - Seek Medical Advice

As with any dietary options, you need to ask medical advice from reputable health experts or a known doctor before you begin. There might be certain vegetarian types that may not be ideal for you especially if you have certain health conditions.

*Step 5 - Start Slowly

When deciding with this lifestyle, starting slow is advisable. It might even be helpful to start by slowly eliminate animal products from your diet one at a time. By doing so, it makes your body accustomed to your changing food intake.

A vegetarian lifestyle allows for a more healthy living. Those that practice this have been shown to have a higher lifespan. With the absence of animal products, animal to human diseases can be also eliminated, as with contamination from pathogenic bacteria that can be acquired through unsanitary animal processing facilities. Consulting a nutritionist and visiting vegetarian websites are valuable to get u started with the rewarding lifestyle.

Are You Ready To Transition Into A Vegetarian Lifestyle

Are you on the fence about whether or not to become a vegetarian? If so, then you should take the right steps to prepare yourself for a vegetarian lifestyle. Giving up meat (and possibly all animal-based products) won't necessarily be a walk in the park. However, the good news is that you can take some steps to make the transition as smooth as possible.

Here are some of them:

1)       Use vegetarian meat-substitutes

If meat seems like a must-have for you, then try adding meat substitutes in your favorite dishes that require meat. These include substitutes that include soybeans, rice and mushrooms. Some of these products taste so much like meat that you won't know the difference! As a word of caution, it's advisable to choose meat substitutes that are as natural as healthy as possible. Otherwise, choosing meat substitutes could actually be counterproductive if they contain various artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives. Read those ingredients!

2)      Make sure that you get enough protein

Fortunately, there are several non-meat sources of protein that can provide you with all the protein you need. Keep in mind that it's OK if there's some overlap in your protein sources, as you transition into vegetarianism. Some of the best non-meat sources of protein include:

•beans
•eggs
•nuts
•yogurt
Ads by Google

Yes, some of those protein sources would be off limits for strict vegetarians. However, remember that you're technically making a transition to vegetarianism. Interestingly, when making the transition to vegetarianism you might actually crave protein, rather than meat per se. Choosing "non-meat" protein sources is one of the best ways to satisfy your cravings, while avoiding meat products at the same time.

3)       Think about all the benefits

Being a vegetarian isn't necessarily "easy." However, it can certainly provide several benefits for you, including:

•weight loss
•less (bad) fat
•less food poisoning
•better overall health

Being a vegetarian is also better for the environment, due to the amount of land that grazing cattle need. This isn't to say that you should necessarily talk yourself into becoming a vegetarian. That said, giving up meat can certainly seem more logical if you think about how it will benefit you and the Earth.

4)      Have "cheat days" during the week

It might be difficult for you to quit meat cold turkey (pun intended). One method is to transition gradually into a vegetarian lifestyle, by allowing yourself  "cheat days." For example, if you refrain from eating meat during the weekdays, then you could reward yourself by eating meat on the weekends. In time, you could reduce your meat days to once a week and then zero days per week.

5)       Tweak certain vegetarian recipes

Just because you didn't like the first veggie burger (or another vegetarian dish) the first time, doesn't mean that you'll never like it. One option is to use a different type or brand of vegetarian food. Another option is to change the type of food preparation you use. Who knows? A particular vegetarian dish that you once disliked could eventually become one of your all-time favorites.

A great course that is designed for people who are ready to become vegetarians is called The Vegetarian's Beginner's Guide 30 Day Course. This course is great for anyone seriously interested in transitioning into a vegetarian and it provides the information and education needed to thrive on a healthy vegetarian or vegan  diet.

UW Real Food Summit

Do I have a treat for you today!

I just got word that Sean Croxton -- you know, the guy from the Underground Wellness podcast and YouTube channel -- is all set to launch another online health conference he’s calling The Real Food Summit.

If you happened to catch his Paleo Summit a few months back, you know that Sean knows how to host an event.

The guy goes all out!

This summit isn’t just for the Paleo crowd, though. This one is for EVERYONE.

And I should probably mention that it’s absolutely FREE for you to attend!

So what’s the Real Food Summit all about? Well, after almost a decade of studying nutrition and health, Sean came to realize that what most people need to do is Just Eat Real Food -- or JERF, as he likes to call it.

But what exactly is Real Food?

Great question. In fact, that’s the very question that Sean intends to answer throughout the summit. And he brought in some of the best-of-the-best nutrition experts to help him do it.

Check out this stellar lineup of speakers...

* Real farmer Joel Salatin leads off the summit, as he defines what real cows, real chickens, and real pigs really are

* Blogger and podcaster Chris Kresser talks about the importance of fish and seafood in the Real Food diet

* Paul Chek discusses how eating whole foods impacts your mind, body, and soul

* Jeffrey Smith dishes the real dirt on genetically modified foods

* Mark McAfee shows you how raw milk can heal a broken immune system

* The always brilliant Chris Masterjohn shares the nutritional wisdom of Weston A. Price

And those are just a handful of the 27 -- yes, TWENTY-SEVEN! -- video presentations that you will be able to watch for FREE during this 9-day event.

The summit kicks off Sunday, July 8th...BUT you don’t have to wait until then to get started!

That’s because, when you register today, you get to jump start your summit experience with Joel Salatin’s presentation entitled Real Food Defined. I’m 100% sure you’re gonna love it.

How To Go Green With A Vegetarian Lifestyle

Being eco friendly is certainly a popular catch phrase. Most everyone can find numerous reasons to get involved in the movement, and make an effort to save the planet. Green fingers are a great way to get started, but they are simply the beginning.

Vegetarians Beginners Guide

Following are some life-improving ways you can start to go green today:

1.Recycle and reuse plastic, glass, aluminum, and paper products,
2.Whenever possible, walk or ride a bike instead of driving,
3.When motor vehicles are the only option, car pool or use public transportation,
4.Consider converting to a hybrid vehicle,
5.Embrace a vegetarian lifestyle,
6.Turn off, or even unplug, any electrically powered devices when not in use, and
7.Evaluate the possibilities of using solar panels at home.

When people think of taking action that is environmentally friendly, becoming a vegetarian does not necessarily pop to mind. Acting against animal cruelty, on the other hand, does help to promote the vegetarian lifestyle.  In reality, however, a vegetarian’s impact on the environment is enormous.

Walking away from life as an omnivore is one of the most profound things that you can do to help save the environment, and reduce the burden on Earth’s precious resources.

Protecting nature and the planet from pollution, thereby slowing the onset of global warming, is a powerful reason to take this route. Studies prove that the manner in which animals are bred for slaughter creates an undeniable threat. You do not need to be an animal lover to recognize that polluting the environment with unnecessary chemicals is a problem. Cancer has become as commonplace as the flu. People and the planet are simultaneously being damaged.

You do not need to be among the environmentalists to realize that the vast consumption of water and grain and drugs that are fed, through this process, to farm-raised animals are creating disastrous consequences. When it comes to reducing your carbon footprint, just do the math.

When the weight of caloric intake favors red meat, averaging 50%, the footprint increases to more than 3.5 tons annually. On the other hand, when 25% of caloric intake is from fish as the only meat source, the footprint shrinks to just 1 ton, simple choice, gargantuan difference.

The range of that impact is astonishing. There is no doubt that consumption choices influence potential climate changes.

From a long-term perspective, a vegetarian lifestyle provides the greatest individual health benefits. When you care for yourself and your own well-being with this dietary choice, you also have a positive impact on the environment, year after year. Making the healthiest choice for everyone is the best legacy to leave by becoming a vegetarian today. To learn how to start your vegetarian lifestyle invest in your copy of Vegetarians Beginners Guide today.
