I was vegetarian for about a year. Last year in fact. But then I read "The Vegetarian Myth" by Lierre Keith. Afterwards I started doing more critical research and realized how gullable I'd have been to assume that simply going vegetarian would help solve the worlds environmental problems. I was tricked into believing that such a diet would be the healthiest diet. I had more digestive problems, among other things like getting my thryoid feeling swollen, than I'd ever had before after transitioning to a vegetarian diet. Most probably from the decrease in iodine + iron intake. Along with consuming soy which is known to cause thyroid problems. Anyways. Now I eat a lot of meat products (organic), dairy, veggies, less carbohydrates and more animal fats. I have no digestive problems any longer and my thyroid feels completely normal.
