Posted by Lisa T.

yes, that is what the title of this great article by Charlene Naivo of WebMD Medical news suggests. THere are so many benefits of ta veggie diet. And my friend, Areg M says that his pants are becoming looser after adopting veggie ways! Some more fun facts from the article" -levels of LDL "bad" cholesterol dropped after six months on the vegetarian diet, although they started to rebound when people went back to their normal eating habits a year later, says Lora A. Burke, PhD, professor of nursing and epidemiology at the University of Pittsburgh. -"Giving up meat is a huge, difficult change for Americans," she says. "One-third of participants didn't want to be on the vegetarian diet at the start of the study." But many stuck it out. In fact, 40% were still meat-free 12 months later. In contrast, only 30% of people on the standard diet stayed on their diet plan for a year. By 18 months out, people assigned to the lacto-ovo-vegetarian diet had lost an average of 11.2 pounds vs. 10.4 pounds in the standard-diet group.
