Meat seems to be all the rage in diets today, with its high levels of protein and low carbohydrates. Since when was getting a hamburger without the bun healthy?
It’s easy to feel left out as a vegetarian. What are we to do for our protein? Well, lucky for us, we are most likely already eating more protein than we need. Eating varied foods from all the food spectrums provides more than enough protein to develop and maintain your health in a natural way. That is, unless you’re a body builder. And even if you are a body builder, I don’t recommend counting the grams of protein you get a day – this is an unhealthy and unnecessary exercise that places too much emphasis on the science of food, neglecting common sense and logic. An exception would be if your doctor or nutritionist instructs you to do so.

They’re all common symptoms for all sorts of illnesses, for instance, the common cold.
