Do Vegetarian Diets Really Work?

According to a new study by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), patients can easily transition from a standard omnivorous diet to a low-fat, vegetarian diet that helps people lose weight, lower blood pressure, and otherwise improve their health.

Physicians recognize a low-fat vegetarian diet can reverse heart disease and provide other benefits, but they mistakenly think that patients will not make the transition. Some believe a vegetarian diet can be a life-saving prescription for battling heart disease.

One important thing I want you to recognize about the messenger: The PCRM is the same group who horribly distorted the facts behind the recent death of Dr. Robert Atkins who developed the Atkins Diet. In fact, they are nearly as bad as the major drug companies about promoting their own skewed agenda.

Back to the point at hand, are vegetarian diets really healthy?

The study has the right idea that changing your diet will make a profound effect in your health, yet it doesn't take into account that it isn't healthy for many people to eat a strictly vegetarian diet. To learn about what foods you should be eating for your good health, you'll need to know more about your nutritional type.
