Nutrition: Vegetarians

File:Soy-whey-protein-diet.jpgDifferences to meat eaters: A well planned vegetarian diet can provide adequate protein, iron, zinc, vitamin B12 and calcium, though these nutrients can be low in poorly  planned vegetarian diets.Evidence suggests that vegetarians have lower rates of coronary heart disease, obesity, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, though they also tend to be more educated, more wealthy, and more health-occupied than meat eaters.Vegetarian diets tend to be rich in carbohydrates, omega-6 fatty acids, dietary fibre, carotenoids, vitamin C, vitamin E, potassium and magnesium. They are generally low in saturated fat, cholesterol, and animal protein.

 Types of vegetarians:

  • Lacto-vegetarian diets exclude meat, fish, poultry and eggs, as well as foods that contain them. Dairy products, such as milk, cheese, yogurt and butter, are included.
  • Lacto-ovo vegetarian diets exclude meat, fish and poultry, but allow dairy products and eggs.
  • Ovo-vegetarian diets exclude meat, poultry, seafood and dairy products, but allow eggs.
  • Vegan diets exclude meat, poultry, fish, eggs and dairy products — and foods that contain these products.

I personally am a Lacto-ovo vegetarian because I dont eat meat, seafood or poultry, but diary foods and eggs.

Vegetarians in Germany:

According to Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Germany has over six million vegetarians. The Italian research institute Eurispes reports that Germany has the second highest rate of vegetarians in the European Union (after Italy) with 9% of the population (7, 380,000) being so.
