Question: ok im a vegetarian again. i was for a year then i went back to meat now i wanna be a veggie again. but i want to know, im 14 now. a year ago september, i started my veggie diet. (this was before i turned 13) well i stated gaining weight. i have always had a fast matabolsim. i could eat a whole chocolate cake and not gain an ounce! but im wondering why i was gaining weight when i started a veggie diet? i did eat fish and dairy, but that was all the animal products i would eat. i dont get it. i was thinking that maybe it was because i hit puberty at that point. (i got my peirod almost this exact time) do you think that maybe its because my motabolism slowed down? cuz iv heard of loosing weight on this diet but not gaining it?? and i tell people that i want to be a vegetarian again and they think im an idot. i have 15 reasons (so far) why i should be a vegetarian. here they are: 1.) you could be healthier 2.)you'll save animal's lives' 3.)you save money. 4.)you live 3-6 years longer than the average meat eater. 5.)healthier skin. 6.)increased energy. 7.)lower blood pressure 8.)lower risk of cancer. 9.)prevention of type 2 diabetes 10.)reason most of America is overweight they consume 3 times more protein then needed. 11.)animals raised for food are treated poor. 12.)meat can easily be contaminated. 13.)Help end world hunger: every day forty thousand children on this planet needlessly starve to death. According to the Department of Agriculture statistics, one acre of land can grow 20,000 pounds of potatoes. That same acre of land, when used to grow cattle feed, can produce less than 165 pounds of edible cow flesh. 14.)If they continue to clear American forests to raise cattle at the present rate, in 50 years there will be none left 15.)Human physiology. Meat eaters have claws, no pores on the skin so they perspire through the tongue. Plant eaters perspire through pores on the skin (since they are searching for food during hot hours, not hunting at sunrise/sunset or under cover of darkness as meat eaters do) and flat back molars to grind food. any one have any more reasons or disagree with the ones i have? thanks!!!

When people ask me why I'm vegan, I don't bother with health or environmental reasons. I inform myself about these issues, but I don't really care to argue with people over the credentials or funding sources of some scientists who disagree over this or that. I don't bother arguing that people aren't physiologically meant to eat meat, because it doesn't make any difference. It's simple. Start with #11, Animals raised for food are treated poorly. This is absolutely provably true. You can focus on this, look up the information. Start with vegetarian sites, but then check it out for yourself. I heard some things so awful I couldn't believe they were true, but fortunately for me the livestock industry helpfully provides corroboration on their web sites; not the ones where they're talking to consumers, but where they're talking to each other. Trade magazines and web sites! For example, do a Google search on "Calf Branding" or "Calf Castration" and keep in mind that no anesthetic is ever, ever used on farm animals. Or Google "Dairy Cow Pregnancy" to verify that cows must be impregnated yearly in order to give milk. When I just did this most results seemed to be industry sites which are matter-of-factly or even proudly explaining the procedures - just check the URL to eliminate veggie-sounding sites. Step 2: what are your values? Do these procedures sound OK to you? Do they match your values? No, that's why you're veg. That's all you need to say. My Dad (non-veg but now supportive) tells me that I don't need to give any other answer than this: "I choose not to cause unnecessary suffering." Another answer I sometimes give is "I'm opposed to violence." Either of those can be considered inflammatory, because it implies that the person you're talking to is in favor of suffering and violence. So sometimes I say "It makes me happy to align my actions with my values."

Puberty, hormones... I am a vegetarian and I too gain weight if I eat veg pizzas. My advice is to run in the park 30 minutes every day and you'll soon get back to normal, or do some sports that you like.

I'll disagree with most all of these "reasons". 1. I can gree with that. You MIGHT be heathier. But you can be a junk food vegan just as you can be a junk food meat eater. 2. No, you won't save animal lives. Domesticated livestock is born to be someone's dinner. If the meat is not consumed by humans, it will go to feed zoo animals, pets, etc. 3. Don't believe that for a minute. Price fake meat. It's not cheap. Plus you need to eat a lot more veggies to get the nutrients in meat. For example, the non-heme iron in veggies is poorly absorbed by your body compared to the heme iron in meat. So you need to eat a lot more of it. 4. LOL! A joke, right? 5. Diet certainly can play a role in healthy skin. But, again, junk food veg*ns are all over the place. 6, 7, 8, 9. No. Show me the research. 10. Americans are overweight because they consume too many calories and get too little expercise. You, yourself, say going veggie made you GAIN weight! How can you claim being a veggie will control weight? Jeez. 11. Animals raised for food are actually treated quite well. They're the farmer/rancher's source of income. Poorly treated animals produce lower quality meat. Why would any sensible person damage his future profits? 12. LOL! Again. Look at how many more people died this year from eating contaminated veggies/fruit than meat. It' was a lot more. Years ago, the USDA pressured the big meat packing companies into cleaning up their plants. The FDA takes care of veggies and they have been terribly underfunded, undermanned and just can't do the inspections needed to protect us from contaminated veggies. Only one example: http://eatocracy.cnn.com/2010/10/21/four... 13. World hunger is not an issue of a lack of food. It's a political issue. This is has been refuted so many times it's sad that you're still putting it out as a "reason" to give up meat. 14. Actually, cattle in the United States are raised on land that is too fragile to plow up and raise crops. But if we cut meat out of our diet, we'll be forced to plow it up because....again...our bodies don't use some nutrients from plants as well as meat (see iron above) so we'll need to grow a lot more of the veggies. 15. Humans need Vitamin B12. See VeganHealth link below. B12 is not available in any plant foods. Obviously, we were "meant" to eat animal products or we wouldn't require a vitamin only available in animal foods. So I have refuted every one of your 15 reasons. You obviously didn't do well on a veggie diet. Are you letting peer pressure push you into trying it again?

A lot of the evidence supporting vegetarianism is -lets face it- biased and only shows correlations not causations. If there was a study for people who eat meat in a healthy manner, they would outlive vegetarians. But there aren't studys to prove that. You're right about 15 but you have to realize we are omnivores. half and half. And we are Mainly programed for a vege diet but meats are perfectly fine in moderation and in once in a while. By not eating meats and dairies you'll lose a lot of vitamins and minerals and amino acids you'd miss out of. So you probably won't feel healthier going 0% animal products. But if you're eating fish, eggs, and dairy. THAT'S a healthy diet.

the saving money one may be questionable. Also, yes. puberty would be the reason for your weight gain, not the diet change. Puberty completely changes your body, including, in many cases, your metabolism.

Charmian Originally Answered: Yeah im a guy 22 with a snoring probelm, wtf to do?
here are 9 steps i found on eHow.com i think that they might help 1-Are you overweight? Do you constantly feel drowsy? Do you struggle to breathe while asleep? Do you have high blood pressure? If so, consult a doctor who specializes in sleep disorders. These are all telltale signs of sleep apnea. 2-Use a single low pillow. Sleeping on too many pillows can stretch and narrow the nasal passage. If, however, you are congested, elevate the head by placing books under the mattress to encourage better drainage. 3-Try to sleep on your stomach, since snoring is less likely to occur in this position. You can buy anti-snoring pillows designed to keep snorers on their side while asleep. 4-Adopt a healthy lifestyle. Extra weight, smoking, alcohol and drugs all exacerbate snoring. 5-Review your meds. Sleeping pills, antihistamines and other medications increase snoring. 6-Consult your doctor if you suspect that allergies and nasal congestion may be causing the problem. Make sure your allergy medication is antihistamine free. 7-Try an over-the-counter nasal strip. These strips may widen the nasal passages and decrease congestion to reduce snoring. 8-Ask your dentist about using an oral appliance designed to reduce snoring. 9-Discuss the treatments for sleep apnea with a sleep-disorder specialist. These include surgery, radio-frequency treatment and a sleeping mask that aids breathing. i hope i helped good luck
