Have you ever thought which are the countries with the highest rates of vegetarianism? If so, you are at the right place as Insider Monkey’s has come up with an amazing compilation in this field. Being a vegetarian can have many reasons: religion, animal protection, health issues, environment concerns, etc. When I was seventeen, one day which was the 1st of February – I decided not to eat meat any more. Before this decision I read many vegetarian doctors’ books, because I wanted to know more and more about this diet. Then I made my decision. Earlier I extremely loved meat, especially coated ones. So I was very curious if I was able to say no for meat. But it wasn’t so difficult as I thought before. The first thing I experienced was that I lost weight. I was a little plump, so I was very happy to become slimmer. The next result was that my memory became much better! Alongside with it I didn’t need 9 hours sleeping, 7 hours were absolutely enough! At that time I studied during the day, I worked at night – and yet I was all right!
I was a vegetarian for couple of years without any disadvantages of it. Later on I went to university and gradually I began to eat meat. I can remember the first bit of meat after couple of years. There was a conference in English and I visited it too. After the lecture we all had lunch together in the canteen. It was so embarrassing for me to say I didn’t want to eat the meatloaf – so I ate a little bit. I must confess it tested like blood… It wasn’t fine. Nevertheless after that I ate more and more meat, I got used to its taste again, and now, twenty years later I have a tiny little farm with lots of domestic animals. I eat the meat from my farm, I make my own bread and dairy products.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three countries with the highest rates of vegetarianism from their list. In Poland the percentage of vegetarians is 8% and vegetarianism is spreading here. In France the situation is the same with 8% as well. This rate is higher in the UK with its 9%-11%.
