    Hi I just wanted to create a interesting thread so I thought up the "Vegie Challenge! It is like a game show where contestants try to be vegie for a week. You can sign up and follow the contestants here. Sign-ups are open until Sunday. And even after that, you can sign up for the next "season"! If you don't want to sign up, you can become a fan and follow each contestant. Contestants can also post a "Vegie Log" about what they eat and thier feelings about being vegie. Anyone can join, but *please* (don't want to offend) don't sign up if you're already vegie. I deeply apologize for any hard feelings this causes. [​IMG] Season 1 starts Sunday.Next Sunday, we will hear from the contestants as they review thier week. You can re- sign up if you want to go for more, and I am confident some of you will become full- time vegetarians.

    Please be nice and respectful and have fun!

    Quote:Whoa I thought this was for trying to go from less healthy to more healthy for a week, not more healthy to less healthy??? Haha but I still prefer being a Vegetarian (not that I've ever been a meat eater...I've been a Vegetarian all my life!) because it's healthier (IMHO and based on studies) and less cruel.


    This should be interesting! [​IMG]

    Randy: Good luck! [​IMG]


    redhen: watch some of the videos about KFC, etc. and I think you'd last way more than an hour... [​IMG]

    I don't think vegetarians are any healthier than those of us who eat meat. [​IMG]

    Well yes they are...True, some Vegetarians do eat too much non-meat/unhealthy food, but the Vegetarians who have a healthy eating lifestyle will be healthier. Vegetarian "meat" (which is delicious! [​IMG]) is less fattening than real meat. So some Vegetarians may not eat meat, but they do eat junk food, and they can be unhealthy.

    Oh and I'm not saying that all Vegetarians are more healthy than all meat eaters. Just the ones who stay on a healthy lifestyle will be healthier than others. [​IMG] Some meat eaters are healthier than some Vegetarians...it all depends if you're rationing out your food and getting the right amount of vitamins, protein, etc. for both meat and non=meat lifestyles.
