A new study that explores the personality and physique of vegetarians and strict vegetarians has found significant differences in their average physique compared to those who eat meat. In addition to having a lower BMI, the study found that vegetarians were also more likely to have different personality traits and were more likely to be introverted.
The study came from the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognition and Brain Science, a large study that used data from about 9,000 people to study dietary composition, personality and body mass. As you might expect, vegetarians and strict vegetarians are found to have lower BMI values than meat eaters, possibly because they eat less processed foods and get more cellulose in their diets.
In terms of weight, the study found that people who ate secondary animal products such as eggs and butter were almost more likely to have a lower BMI than those who ate animal products such as fish and chicken.
At the same time, the study found that vegetarians also had a key difference in personality than meat eaters, meaning they were more likely to be introverts. The researchers speculate that this may be due to a number of factors, such as reduced social opportunities due to different eating habits, and more restrictive eating habits introverts overall.
At the same time, the study failed to find a link between a lack of animal products in a person’s diet and depression or neurotic problems. This may be due to the widespread acceptance and increasing adoption of a plant-based diet, which has led to a large number of vegetarian choices, and the reasons why they eat it may be different from those of the older generation.
