No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
One of my favorite newspapers is The Atlantic (I read it online). Monday, I read a very intriguing article about a group of people in California who are healthier and therefore live a lot longer than the average American. They are an interesting bunch…they are all Seventh Day Adventists (which I thought was an offshoot of Mormonism but , apparently, isn’t). I don’t plan to convert, but maybe I could eat a little more like they do. They eat primarily a Mediterranean diet, are mostly vegetarian, and their faith stresses the importance of health and well being.
The statistics they quoted on heart disease were unbelievable…Even people who ate only chicken and fish had more heart disease than those who were vegetarian! I’ve always assumed that red meat was the culprit…apparently not. I’m seriously considering becoming a vegetarian. (I don’t think I can go vegan, I like eggs too much) I think I could easily replace meat with beans and be just fine with it (though more gassy).
