hey<br><br><br><br>
I'm 19 years and found this forum through google search (typed in: "vegetarian community forum").<br><br><br><br>
Recently i started banning meat from my diet. My motivation is purely the health benefit. I've done some research for myself to find out what i can eat in this fast food society that won't kill me slowly. This lead to the conclusion that meat really is not good! (and you can tell very easy it's bad when you feel bloated after dinner).<br><br><br><br>
I've learned to really love the healthy food. It's amazing how your body adjusts and you can just eat all those vegetables like they are candy. The meat substitutes are also really amazing. Tofu rocks when prepared right,.. as do lentilles, mixed with some onions!<br><br><br><br>
I hope to learn some things here and read about experiences others have with vegetarianism. Mainly i'm interested in the science of food. Also the cultural aspect of the vegetarianism interests me. (as in: why are vegetarians often misunderstood? Just this week i overheard a conversation in which they couldn't understand why vegetarians don't eat the delicious meat and even french fries).<br><br><br><br>
I've been unhealthy. I used to PUKE when eating broccoly. More and more the healthy food starts taking over my life, in a positive non discriminating way towards other people.<br><br><br><br>
greetings!

Maybe in the longrun other motives will get equally important for you. Anyway, the reason isn't as important as getting started. Congratulations!
