Every June 15 is a healthy vegetarian day.

This festival is a low-carbon diet that vegetarians advocate that people should mainly eat vegetarian food and claim to eat more vegetarian food to save the earth.

In fact, with the further popularization of environmental protection awareness and health awareness, people's eating habits have gradually changed, and many people have begun to change from carnivorism to vegetarianism.

The two eating factions have also been arguing endlessly. Vegetarians believe that vegetarians are healthier, while carnivores attack that vegetarian nutrition is not comprehensive.

What kind of diet is more conducive to maintaining health and making people live longer?

Indeed, health problems such as hypertension, hyperlipidemia and cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases are closely related to excessive intake of meat food, which is also the biggest reason for people to change their eating habits.

However, it is undeniable that common animal foods, including meat, poultry, fish, eggs, milk and other foods, are the main source of high-quality protein. They can provide fat, vitamins and minerals for the human body, and are of great significance in maintaining the energy supply of the human body and improving the immune capacity of the body. Therefore, animal foods should be taken in an appropriate amount in the daily diet.

If you keep a vegetarian diet for a long time and don't even eat eggs and dairy products, your body may not get enough protein, resulting in problems such as decreased immunity, lack of energy and easy fatigue.

Man, originally an omnivore

From the perspective of human planning history and human digestive structure, man was originally an omnivore, not a simple meat or vegetarian.

Pure vegetarianism and carnivorism are not scientific and ideal diet. To be healthy, the daily diet should be balanced, rich and diverse.

How should we eat our daily diet?

First, various varieties and appropriate dosage

The daily diet should follow the principle of "small amount and diversity". Each meal has a very diverse variety of dishes, including seafood, poultry, red meat, beans, vegetables, fruits and starchy staple foods. The diversified collocation of food ensures the balanced intake of various nutrients.

The matching proportion of various food ingredients is mainly vegetarian dishes, supplemented by meat, so you don't have to worry about eating too much fat.

Second, balanced nutrition and meat and vegetable combination

In order to live a long and healthy life, we should pay attention to the combination of meat and vegetables in our daily diet. We should not be partial to eating. We should eat enough animal food, preferably white meat with low fat content and rich nutrition, such as fish and shrimp.

In addition to eating an appropriate amount of meat, it is best to drink some milk and eat an egg every day to ensure the intake of high-quality protein.

In addition, eat plenty of vegetarian foods, such as fresh vegetables and fruits.

Generally speaking, adults should eat about a kilo of green vegetables every day, preferably dark vegetables, such as broccoli, tomatoes and carrots.

Vegetarianism includes not only vegetables and fruits, but also mushrooms and cereals, such as mushrooms, agaric, potato, beans and nuts, because these foods can provide minerals, vitamins and cellulose needed by the body.

Third, reasonable selection of cooking oil

The human body needs a variety of fatty acids, especially to meet the needs of essential fatty acids. Therefore, it is recommended to often change different types of edible oils, such as flaxseed oil, perilla oil, rapeseed oil, etc.

The best mix of meat and vegetables is three meat and seven vegetables. When cooking, you should also pay attention to less oil and salt, mainly cooking and less frying, so as to avoid eating too much fat.

Vegetarian, can you lose weight?

In fact, this is not necessarily true.

Weight loss is mainly related to the calories of food consumed by the human body, and vegetarians are also divided into "high and low calories".

For example, vegetables and fruits have lower calories. Most bean products have less fat and lower calories than meat.

However, if you add a lot of oil to stir fry or fry, or add a variety of sugar and other processed vegetarian food, the heat will also increase greatly, so it is still very easy to gain weight.

Therefore, whether you can lose weight or not has little to do with vegetarianism.
