No Stomach for a 'Vegetarian Life'? Try 'Flexitarian'!!!
“Flexitarian” is a term recently coined to describe those who eat a mostly vegetarian diet, but occasionally eat meat.
A relatively new term, flexitarian comes from a
combination of the words "flexible" and "vegetarian."
Following a flexitarian diet simply means eating more plant-based meals and less meat.
There's plenty of scientific evidence to support the healthfulness of a diet made up mostly of plant foods.
Should you be a flexitarian?
By Jennifer Nelson, M.S., R.D. and Katherine Zeratsky, R.D.
The recently released 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans urge Americans to eat a plant-based diet. Plant-based diets have many health benefits. With their emphasis on fruits and vegetables, grains, beans and legumes and nuts, this way of eating is rich in fiber, vitamins and other nutrients.
Does this mean you have to become a vegetarian? Not necessarily, though, people who follow a vegetarian diet generally eat fewer calories and less fat, weigh less and have lower cholesterol levels than do nonvegetarians.
You can still eat meat, poultry and fish in moderation as part of a plant-based diet if you're willing to be flexible.
