Am trying to become vegetarian, but do not feel  my hunger is satisfied without meat so i end up eating more food.

OK to eat more food: Meat is a concentrated source of fat & calories. It's ok & typical to eat more food on a vegetarian diet. For example, 100 calories of steak has 6.5 grams of protein vs.100 cal. Of kale having 6.8 gr. However, 100 cal. Of steak weighs 1 oz. While 100 cal. Of kale weighs 12.6 oz.

Does eating non veg have any effect on erection. I am basically a vegetarian. Whenever i take chicken, fish I have a strong erection. Veg food its weak?

Possible effects but: There is no reason you can't have strong erections on a vegetarian diet. The 2 nutrients that may have greatest effects on this are arginine & zinc. Chicken & fish supply arginine & zinc but so do many vegetarian foods. Nuts are a great source of arginine- see http://www.Livestrong.Com/article/275892-foods-high-in-l-arginine/ for zinc see http://www.Whfoods.Com/genpage.Php?Tname=nutrient&dbid=115. ...Read more

Can you get food poisoning from eating food cooked on a grill near meat if you are vegetarian for years? Sudden body aches like flu next day

Can you get food poisoning from eating food cooked on a grill near meat if you are vegetarian for years? Sudden body aches like flu next day

Hmmmm...?: If you are asking whether your food, touching meat on a grill, would make you sick, simply because you are a vegetarian, I'd have to say no. On the other hand, if several other people at your cookout got sick too, it could be food poisoning. Expect some vomiting and/or diarrhea. More likely, with your symptoms, the infection you've been exposed to is viral, not food-borne. Get rest and fluids! ...Read more
