Just curious if anyone else has ran into this problem. I keep getting sick. I work in an environment that there are constant germs around. Since my transition into vegetarianism a bit over 6 months ago I have gotten sick 3 times. My immune system just isn’t what it use to be. I also have a friend who use to be vegetarian and says she ran into the same problem all the time. That was actually one of her warnings to me about going vegetarian. Anyone else have this problem? What have you done to stop this cycle of illness? My friend went back to eating meat, though seldom, she eats it from time to time to keep her immune system up. I really don’t want to bring any meat back into my diet, but I can’t jeopardize my own health for this cause. If it came down to it, I’d probably bring back in some fish, making me Pescetarian, but that would be all. I would prefer not to bring any meat back in… so if anyone has any suggestions or would like to share their experience with me I’d greatly appreciate it.
I see a pattern here. Ok, so my daily diet consists of just about everything everyone has suggested. I eat lots of fruits and veggies. I eat plenty of whole grains. I eat dairy. I get plenty of protein from tofu, quinoa, cottage cheese and the occasional intake of eggs. The thing I have a hard, hard time remembering is taking my vitamins. I maybe remember once or twice a week. I’ve tried working on that, however I still manage to forget.
Thank you all for your help though.
