Ethical Dilemma?

I have documented well that I have been a vegetarian for the last 6 or so months. I love being a vegetarian – my digestion has improved and morally, I feel it is the right choice for me. There are of course drawbacks – and these drawbacks have now been ponted out to me by my parents, my dietitian and my doctor.

The main problems are:

  • The tendency for vegetarians to gain weight sue to a dependency on bread and cheese (I am already overweight so this is not healthy)
  • Greater difficulty in getting protein without planning (Harder to sustain training, meals are not as filling)
  • Greater difficulty in getting Vitamin B6 and healthy fats, commonly found in fish (Contibutes and exacerbates anxiety and depression)

So I am at a loss. I don’t want to eat red meat or chicken of that much I am sure. But I have promised to consider eating fish again. There are two parts of me fighting this out and I am not sure what to do.

Opinions are welcome 🙂
