SO, the reason for this post is because this vegetarian that I work with was trying to argue with me that someone would be healthier and live longer if they ate cheese pizza the rest of their life as opposed to steaks. I tried to tell her that she was crazy because those are two of the things that you are supposed to avoid high levels of consumption together.
Her response was that 1, cheese has protein, which I tried to explain to her that the amount of protein in cheese is so small that it shouldn't even be considered. 2 she said that we would be missing out on all of the vitamins and mineral that a person needs. granted that could be a factor, but I have a hard time believing that a person would be better off eating cheese pizza over steaks for a long period of time.
Can someone either tell me that I'm way off in my assumptions or she is? In any case I honestly don't think this girl has freaking clue about nutrtion, and is just trying to justify the fact that she eats a bunch of carbs and fat since she is a broccoli head.
