This may seem like a stupid question but I believe it deserves an
answer if we are to understand the nutritionally adequate diet that
leads to good health. I would hope your answer to this question is
that you eat to live a healthy life. There are many answers but I
believe this is the best.
Why do you choose the foods you eat?
Again there are many answers:
The Vegetarian / Vegan Diet ~ the reason for choosing these diets
appears to be:
To prevent cruelty to animals
To be more environmentally friendly
To provide a healthier diet
The major difference in vegan versus vegetarian diets is that vegetarians
consider eggs and milk a suitable food. Vegans object to these foods based
upon the conditions used in the production of milk and eggs.
The more main-stream diet
This type of diet does not restrict the food sources and generally includes
some level of meat, milk, eggs, fish, or variety meats that represent the
cholesterol containing foods to provide a healthier diet
Can these diets provide nutritional adequacy without adding supplements?
The answer is…that it depends...
