My wife and daughter are both under weigh. I introduce them to vegetarian meals but they both eat meat. Our daughter doesn't rely like to eat so her Dr. told us to just let her eat anything she wants. She just needs all the calories she can get.
I've found without question that the best way to lead others to a more plant-based diet is by example - to lead with your fork, not your mouth. ~Bernie Wilke
Hello everyone! I just joined the group, and I'm new to Flexitarianism as well.
My husband and I watched Forks Over Knives last week and we decided that it would be beneficial for us, for more reasons than 1, to begin a diet of plant based whole foods. While I would love to be able to say that we're going to become complete vegetarians, I know my family, and myself, and know that there's just no possible way that we could give up meat completely right now. Maybe after a while of not eating meats so much, we can cut them out all together, but, for the most part I know that if we tried from the very beginning we would fail.
My husband and I both need to lose weight, but our 2 children do not. This is the one thing that I battle with. I worry that cutting out the higher calorie meat will have a dramatic effect on them. They are already on the slender side with very high metabolisms, how will I balance??
