There’s disagreement about whether humans are designed to eat meat or not. After all, we lack the claws, teeth, speed, and physical prowess to catch any wild animals that most people would consider worth eating.
Regardless, there’s a lot of evidence to support that most of us would be healthier if we reduced, or even eliminated, meat from our diets.
There’s one scientifically supported hypothesis that eating meat isn’t a bad choice, providing you don’t have any health risk factors. Some of these include smoking, diabetes, hypertension, existing heart disease, high cholesterol, and obesity.
The truth is that no one knows the best diet for certain.
However, most people would experience health benefits by reducing the amount of meat they consume.
Try an experiment. Cut your meat intake by half for the next two weeks and notice how you feel. Check your weight at the beginning and at the end. Decide for yourself if you want to go back to your normal portion of meat, or if you’d rather, cut back even further and run an additional experiment.
Keep in mind that avoiding meat doesn’t mean that chips, ice cream, and other processed carbohydrates are suddenly okay to eat. It doesn’t help if you drop one unhealthy option for another. You already know which foods are healthy and unhealthy.
Make healthy choices and cut back on your meat consumption. You’ll be helping yourself and the environment.
