Hi everyone,<br><br>
Before anyone answers, my goal is to live as long as possible, I do not care about the social issues of what I eat or how it affects the world, I only care about how strong, healthy it will make me. Anything that is posted I expect to be backed by science rather than feeling.<br><br>
For the past year I have been eating nothing but fresh meat, just pure meat straight off the bone cooked rare with no seasoning and no accompaniments. I feel great and can run almost indefinitely. But alas, I am never happy with what I have and I am always seeking improvements. This has led me to the path of looking into a vegetarian based diet, the direct competitor of the meat-based diet. But I'm struggling to find good reliable sources of information which are based on science rather than feeling, I'm particularly interested in how a vegetarian diet affects homeostasis and other physiological aspects of the human body. At the moment I am convinced that both sides provide a healthier alternative than the modern diet but I need more evidence to properly understand why the vegetarian alternative works. Does anyone here know any good sources of information and books on the vegetarian diet and the science behind it?

Hello there adrian50697,<br><br>
For science-based health and nutritional information relevant to a vegetarian diet: <a href="http://www.vrg.org/nutrition/" target="_blank">http://www.vrg.org/nutrition/</a><br>
And specifically for the vegan diet: <a href="http://www.veganhealth.org" target="_blank">http://www.veganhealth.org</a><br><br>
From what you have posted, it doesn't sound like your goal is to go vegetarian yet. Unfortunately, you then find yourself in violation of our <a href="showthread.php?s=7f5ee8bde0c2ad56f6c1266808164dda&t=61578" title="VeggieBoards - Vegetarian Forum - Thread 61578">rules</a>.

I think it does.<br><br>
Since he is contemplating the thought of going vegetarian.

Mere contemplation is not sufficient - from the <a href="showthread.php?s=7f5ee8bde0c2ad56f6c1266808164dda&t=61578" title="VeggieBoards - Vegetarian Forum - Thread 61578">rules</a>:<br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">If you are not currently vegetarian that needs to be your goal.</div>

Yes, but that's an additional requirement. (Said another way, it's AND, not OR.)

Well, regardless of that, I would argue that the rule of having a clear and defined goal of becoming a vegetarian is kind of weird, since that would turn off those that may have an interest in veg**nism, but have yet to know get input/advice from other vegetarians and/or know the facts. Just look at me!<br><br>
And even if it would still be a rule, then the paragraph I quoted would be redundant, since those that have a goal of becoming a vegetarian would be pretty interested in it by default, no?

Well, I have my doubts about that anyhow.
