Hi

At 65 and recently retired its come to my attention that i'm seriously out of shape overweight and lacking the stamina to do just about everything,.I got to do something, as a start i watched a movie called Fat Sick and nearly Dead it motivated/inspired me into  attaining a much healthier lifestyle,through forums like this one i hope to achieve a more active lifestyle through good dietary habits.

Jim

My father in law and mother in law also became vegetarian in their sixties. They died at the age of 94 and 91.


My usual answer: I have never heard a convincing reason to eat meat.

Welcome Jim. I'm 62, been veg*n (vegetarian and vegan) for 20+ years. Smartest thing I ever did! Feel free to ask questions, start your own threads and otherwise join in the community. Happy to help!
