This Is Why Women Crave Chocolate, Men Want A Burger
Men love meat and ladies love sweets. Right? These stereotypes are near-effortless to buy into, particularly in the U.S., where marketers have played them hard, and consumers have adopted them as their own preferences and truths. The perception is as follows: Women are to subsist on salad (and chocolate, sometimes) and men are to fill their plates with meat and savory dishes. Just take a glance at the chocolate advertisements below. (From left to right: Frames from TV advertisements for Dove, Ghiradelli, Hershey and Godiva.

Discussion Vegetarians have a diet pattern that emphasizes consuming plant foods (i.e. vegetables, grains and nuts) and avoiding flesh food (i.e. red meat, poultry, fish).

Climate: Meat turns up the heat as livestock emit greenhouse gases
Eating meat contributes to climate change, due to greenhouse gasses emitted by livestock. New research finds that livestock emissions are on the rise and that beef cattle are responsible for far more greenhouse gas emissions than other types of animals. "That tasty hamburger is the real culprit," the lead researcher said. "It might be better for the environment if we all became vegetarians, but a lot of improvement could come from eating pork or chicken instead of beef." (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)

These types of foods are rich in fiber, healthy fat and good carbohydrates. They are low in saturated and trans fat, sodium, and sugar.

Making the switch to a vegetarian or vegan diet
Several million Americans have abandoned red meat and poultry in favor of a predominantly plant-based diet.

"There's certainly some research on the benefits of the vegetarian diet," says Kathy McManus, director of the Department of Nutrition at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women's Hospital. It can help lower or control weight, reduce the chances of developing heart disease, diabetes, and cancer, and possibly lead to a longer, healthier life. There are a variety...
