Lara Dutta: "Let Vegetarianism Grow on You"
The gorgeous and talented Lara Dutta has earned a
degree in economics from Mumbai University, reigned as a former Miss Universe
and launched a successful career as an actor, starring in such films as Blue,
Housefull and Andaaz, for which she won the Filmfare Award for
Best Female Debut. How does she find the energy to accomplish so much? By
choosing a vegetarian diet,
Why is leaving meat off your plate such a recipe
for achievement? Vegetarian foods are naturally low in fat and cholesterol but
high in nutrients, so you will never be weighed down when you need to be on the
go. And because vegetarian diets work well for long-term weight loss, it's no
surprise that vegetarians are generally leaner and trimmer than meat-eaters.
Going vegetarian also reduces your risk for heart disease, diabetes, obesity
"Even seemingly small choices can have a
big impact on our health, our community and the world around us", Lara
says. "Going vegetarian is one of the easiest ways to improve our health,
help countless animals and protect the Earth."
On today's farms, chickens and other animals are
forced to live in filthy conditions while confined to extremely crowded cages
or sheds, often unable to turn around or even take a single step in any
direction. Cows, buffaloes, sheep and goats are often crammed onto vehicles in
such high numbers on their way to slaughter that their bones break or they die
en route. Fish die as a result of slow, painful suffocation or mutilation.
Billions of these living,
breathing, thinking, feeling beings – whose senses are so similar to ours –
suffer and die just so that we can eat meat. Ready to follow Lara's advice and
"let vegetarianism grow on you"? Why not take the pledge to go
Pledge to Go Veg

other animals who are raised and killed for food. I pledge to go vegetarian.
