Changing the blog

Thank you so much for following the blog and being supporters. After many hours of research and seminars I've come to the realization. Being vegetarian is not the way human beings are designed to eat. Eating a modern diet with bread, high fructose corn syrup, or even grain feed animals is not the way to eat either.

Our DNA as humans has been around for millions of years and it's been only the last 10,000 years we have had agriculture but guess what the human genome hasn't really changed in that time. What doest that mean? Our body isn't genetically adapted to eat modern agriculture foods. The Paleo Diet by Dr. Loren Cordain goes into detail but I'll summarize it:

Human beings where hunter gatherers for Millions of years so our body is highly adapted to eating that way. Specifically lots of LEAN MEATS, fresh Vegetables and fruits, some nuts and fat and that's it! There are lots of reasons to eat this way and after doing the research I have decided to eat a Paleo diet. I have been eating paleo and meat for 3 weeks. Week one was brutal because my body was adapting to the new diet but week 2 was better and this week is great!

So why give up on vegetarianism? To be honest with you I became a vegetarian because of religious dogma and stuck with it out of habit. I took a hard look at my life and realized I want more from life! I want to feel better, look better, and perform better and live life to the fullest!

So that being said I am changing the blog from the vegetarian's review to the REFORMED vegetarians review. The blog will talk about the Paleo diet and how to integrate that with the Zone diet and every day life.
