Meat eating food writer becomes vegetarian for a year

Have you got a meat eating problem? 

One food writer did and decided to undertake an experiment where he became a vegetarian for a year.

Speaking to Neil Mitchell, author of ‘My Year without Meat’, Richard Cornish, said the experiment changed his life.

‘Over that year without doing anything else other than just changing what was on the plate, I lost about five to six kilograms, blood pressure went down, cholesterol went down, and to this day I do not have hayfever’ he said.

Researchers in London have said we should eat 10 servings of fruit and vegetables a day.

Since completing the experiment, Cornish has returned to eating meat.

‘I eat a little bit of the very best, I pay more for it but it’s better quality.’ he said.
