I'm currently in Day 4 of my second vegetarian streak. No fish either; people who say they're vegetarian but eat fish are sleazy conmen. Fish aren't vegetables. Over the summer at Princeton (government program as part of Junior State of America) the meat was really bad at the cafeteria, so I decided to go vegetarian. During the four weeks I went without meat, I lost about eight to ten pounds with no increase in exercise. My cholesterol plummeted to within normal range, as did my glucose and triglycerides; I had increases in stamina and general well-being; my acne cleared up and I generally looked a lot better. So I'm doing it again because I've gained some weight and want to finally get to the normal body mass range for my height (which is 164 and under). Has anyone else ever tried this? It's really pretty easy (nuts and sweets are of course fair game), and all the low-calorie veggies and fruits fill you up so you eat less. It's a good diet to have because you don't have to deal with moderation and splurging.
