Can I have COW with that CHICKEN?
More and more people are becoming ill, obese, sick, and plain unhealthy.
The average AMERICAN eats meat daily, and often times, with every meal.
Before you freak out and defend yourself, listen up!
TO MUCH MEAT WILL KILL YOU! Our human bodies are not designed to eat meat in the first place. What animal do you know, has to kill, then cook its prey before it can eat it? NONE!That alone should make you question things.
I have been back and forth with eating meat since I was 13. I always loved animals and hated eating them. I became a vegetarian when I was 16. I lost weight and felt wonderful! Until, once day, I ended up in the hospital. I had poor circulation, that could have killed me. NOT because I gave up meat, but because I wasn't eating healthy. I had a vitamin deficiency. I continued to not eat meat for a few years, then I got into a relationship, and bam! I was eating it again when I was 19. I went from 125lbs to 145lbs in no time. I had enough of feeling horrible and stopped eating it again. With in 4 months, I was down to 125lbs again. I simply stopped eating meat! After I turned 21, I began drinking. I fell into my cousin's trap and felt obligated to drink if I wanted to hang out with her. I once again, ended up in the hospital in April of that year. I had sever anxiety and found myself in and out of the hospital fearing for my life. I decided one night, that maybe, I do need to eat meat, so once again, I started. By April of that next year, I weighed 150lbs! I felt better, but not because of the meat, but because I started eating a little better and started seeing a new doctor, an ALL NATURAL one. So here I am, 157lbs, over weight, always tired, and feeling like crap. And once again, on the verge of giving up meat.
Now you may say, why don't you just work out and eat better without giving up meat?
I did that, and can't lose the weight. You see, I can't digest meat like most people. I store it as fat almost immediately. So I have decided to give it up for 10 days, while eating a balanced diet and see how I feel. If I feel better, I am not sure I will be eating it again. I decided to limit myself to once a week after this 10 day period. I will eat in once a week, twice if I crave it. This way, I won't be over loading my body, and if I DO, for some reason, need it, its there.
I have lost a great amount of weight when I gave of meat. This alone has shown me that I clearly don't need it. But in another sense, I do need to eat better. If I am not getting protein from animals, I have to get it else where. I love seeds and nuts so that has become my primary source of protein.
What people don't realize is that meat is not only packed with hormones and chemicals that can kill you, but it is so hard on our bodies to digest. We weren't made to eat meat as we are now which is one of the reason why their are so many health problems and so many people who are obese and over weight. Eating to much meat will cause your body so much stress that your bones and organs will begin to break down in an effort to simply digest what you just ate!
So here I am, once again, trying to lose weight and get healthy, accept this time, I'm getting healthy and staying there!
