Nothing against vegetarian diets, but I think that the writer is not really right about some points. #9 is definitely not convincing.<br><br><a href="http://cookbook.rin.ru/cookbook_e/new_articles/veget/15.html" target="_blank">http://cookbook.rin.ru/cookbook_e/ne.../veget/15.html</a>

Hmmm. i thought it was a cute little list. I agreed with most of them. #9 just says meat lacks carbohydrates, which is true. I think it is alluding to high meat diets/low or no carb diets.

#9 is correct. I just think it's a stupid point to make. It's like the author assumes that people who eat meat eat nothing else. Well, at least that what it sounds like to me.

Of course meat has no carbs, but the list assumes non-vegetarians eat only meat (as in #9), and the vegetarians eat a healthy, balanced diet.<br>
Eating vegetarian does not necessarily imply eating healthy.

oH Ice Cream how you LOVE veggies!!! (This is Shangen from CR)<br><br>
So eating meat means I don't get starch??? And here I thought the rice and potatoes I ate provided me with starch...<br><br>
Funny last time I checked most meat eating people were not carnivores they were omnivores... shows what I know!!<img alt="tongue1.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/tongue1.gif">

Yep, that's how I took it. Mind you, I have a vegan diet. It kind of reminds me of how people assume vegetarians/vegans can't get protein from a plant based diet.

That always amuses me, especially when it comes from a physician! Where does everyone think the herbivore they're eating (in the case of beef, lamb, etc) got IT'S protein from?

Hmm. Now that's a point I never thought of, because as you know, I struggled with the same thing when first trying to go veg, getting enough protein to not trigger carb cravings because of my blood sugar issues. I wonder if cows get hypoglycemic? <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif">

When I was a vegetarian, I ate faarrrrrrrrr less healthy.<br><br>
While I think a vegetarian diet can be more healthy than the typical meat diet, I think it's actually harder/requires more planning to eat a healthy, balanced vegetarian diet than one that includes meat.<br><br>
Just from experience.

You've got a point. How about, herbivore eating a healthy diet, vs. a "hot" one. (Feeding a lot of grain to a cow that was meant to eat grass and other roughage.)

Put it this way then, if you want to improve your cowherd's winter condition score in this part of the world you dump em in a cornfield, not feed them dry hay in a winter dormant pasture.
