Fitness, Health and Wellness Expert Dr. Veronica Anderson Publishes New Blog Discussing Men and Vegetarianism

Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, a weekly resource for wellness of mind, body and spirit, comments on the question of whether vegetarian guys have lost their “Man Card”.

NEW YORK, NY – May 16, 2011Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of health and wellness web radio talk show, Wellness for the REAL World, recently published a blog on her website offering her bold opinions on whether masculinity and vegetarianism can go hand in hand. Dr. Veronica explains her stance in her blog, titled “Can a Real Man Be Vegetarian?”

Dr. Anderson writes, “So, recently, I saw this question come across my email in an Ask Men A List newsletter blast. The information resource for all things men had it’s own take: ‘there’s something inherently manly about meat that we just can’t seem to shake. Is it the primal urge to hunt and gather? Our desire for Burger King’s new Meat Monster sandwich? Or is it just that nothing says ‘manhood’ like charring some flesh over an open flame?’ … And of course, I have my take as well: Yes, a real man can be a vegetarian if he is from India! An American guy, however?”

“Can you show me a vegetarian who is a manly man who can earn a living to support his family, who has a preference for women and doesn’t have grizzly wild hair and sandals with long yellow toenails or “white-boy” dreads? It seems that these are the types that stereotypically go meatless in their diets, right? I’m not trying to be rude here – just stating the facts. This might not always be the case, but it sure is the trend for American men. You guys know I am one that thinks that wellness has all different looks, but really, thinking of the American vegetarian man makes me imagine that skinny raw foodie guy,” asserts Dr. Anderson.

Wellness for the REAL World features information on developing a healthy and fit mind, body and spirit in today’s dynamic society. Dr. Anderson adds her easily understandable, fun-infused voice to the broad-audience discussion on today’s most popular medicines, alternative treatments, health policies and opinions of wellness – so that her listeners can benefit from truly vigorous life in the real world today.
