It seems like there is always a new diet trending that claims to be the best, whether it be vegetarian or vegan, keto, paleo, and whole foods. The bottom line is there is no one diet or formula that works for everyone. The diet that works best for me simply will not work the same for very many other people. Not only that, as our bodies change over the years often or dietary needs adjust as well. So, once we think we have it all figured out, we need to make further adjustments.
One of the big questions for a lot of people is should I eat meat or should I be on the vegetarian side?

Problems start to arise when somebody’s body does better when consuming meat products regularly and they have other philosophical reasons for their dietary choices and vice versa for non-meat eaters.

There is no perfect diet. When it comes down to it, everyone has different eating habits that work best for them. Eating what feels best for your body is important and will help you maintain a healthy and balanced life.
