The odd thing that I've noticed is that most of my friends who have become vegetarian have actually gotten BIGGER rather than smaller. One in particular eats a TON of white wonder bread and margarine sandwiches. Vegetarian? Yes. Healthy? NO!

Being a vegetarian doesn't mean being healthy BECAUSE you are a vegetarian. I know LOTS of vegetarians who eat potato chips, granola bars, rice, potatoes, seasoned rice cakes, french fries, and so on who have quite the health and weight issues. And I know LOTS of people who eat a ton of fish and rice and have fabulous cholesterol levels. In fact, my MD says that if someone comes in with high triglyceride blood levels, she knows they've been carbing out...
