We know a few vegetarians, and a handful of vegans too.
The vegetarians? We can deal with them. The vegans are a bit more difficult when inviting over for dinner, if you’re intermingling with non-vegans at the same meal. Sure, it can be done – you just have to be careful.
Then there are those vegan friends who are no longer vegan. While they were so adamant about sharing the vegan lifestyle with others, they weren’t quite as vocal about when they switched back to being a carnivore. Wish we had known that before we invited them back over for a meal.
So imagine our delight when we read THIS STUDY ABOUT VEGETARIANS (yes, not vegans – that’s a different story for a different day) that said that 84% of ALL VEGETARIANS REVERT TO BEING MEAT-EATERS at some point in their lives.
How long does it take for people to flip back from being a vegetarian to being a carnivore?
Anywhere from THREE MONTHS (about a third of all respondents) to WITHIN A YEAR (53%).
The study also found that vegetarians are often more depressed than their meat-loving friends, and are also prone to panic attacks.
The average age for a vegetarian is 42 years old, and most vegetarians are women.
The most popular protein to eat amongst former vegetarians? Chicken
