      Shilpa Shetty Turns Vegetarian; Netizens Say They’re Amazed By Her Choice

      |

      In a long Instagram post, Shilpa Shetty shared that she has finally accepted 'vegetarianism' because she wants to reduce her carbon footprint in the environment. Shilpa wrote, "Since I've shared many milestones here, this is something... that's a very personal choice, a hard decision for me; seemed impossible at one time, but it felt like a 'calling' of sorts."

      "The shift happened gradually and NOW, I have accepted vegetarianism completely. Primarily, because I wanted to reduce my carbon footprint in the environment. Over the years, I've realised that cultivating livestock for food, has not only destroyed forests but also been the largest sources of carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous-oxide emissions. These are majorly responsible for the climate change our planet is experiencing," added Shetty.

      Shilpa also jotted down the benefits of accepting vegetarianism and revealed that it protects us from heart disease, diabetes, obesity and also improves the cardiovascular health.

      Further revealing how she decided to turn vegetarian, the Baazigar actress wrote, "Given my roots (Mangalorean), our diet always comprised of certain elements, meals would often feel incomplete without fish/ chicken as they became habits, then becoming an addiction. But ever since I adopted Yoga as a way of life, I always felt incomplete. I needed to step up... 45 years into this journey of life, and I've finally made the switch."

      Shilpa concluded by saying that every choice has a consequence, hence she is making sure to make the right choice!

      Ahh! My ultimate dream, to grow my own, but for now... I have something to share. Since I’ve shared many milestones here, this is something... that’s a very personal choice, a hard decision for me; seemed impossible at one time, but it felt like a ‘calling’ of sorts. The shift happened gradually and NOW, I have accepted vegetarianism completely. Primarily, because I wanted to reduce my carbon footprint in the environment. Over the years, I’ve realised that cultivating livestock for food, has not only destroyed forests but also been the largest sources of carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous-oxide emissions. These are majorly responsible for the climate change our planet is experiencing. Also, following a vegetarian diet is not only beneficial for animals, but also can actually protect us from heart disease, diabetes, obesity, can improve & also reverse cardiovascular health, and some major diseases. It’s the best change for OUR health and the health of the PLANET. So, to give back to nature as best as I can, here’s a choice I’ve made for myself. Given my roots (Mangalorean), our diet always comprised of certain elements, meals would often feel incomplete without fish/ chicken as they became habits, then becoming an addiction. But ever since I adopted Yoga as a way of life, I always felt incomplete. I needed to step up... 45 years into this journey of life, and I’ve finally made the switch. In the past, being a hardcore non-vegetarian, even my YouTube channel has a lot of non-vegetarian recipes! I WON’T be deleting any of those, as they have been shot but going forward I WILL be focusing mainly on the vegetarian recipes. You all are and have been my extended family & my well-wishers for so many years, hence keeping you posted, about this important step. Every CHOICE has a CONSEQUENCE, make sure you make the right one 🙏 With Gratitude, Shilpa Shetty Kundra ❤️🙏🏻🧿 . . . . #SwasthRahoMastRaho #vegetarian #gratitude #health #planet #change #choice #eatclean #mondaymotivation

      @abrolsanya: "Absolutely amazed by your personality. You're constantly setting new goals for everyone around you. I've been a vegetarian my whole life and wouldn't ever change it. Food is just a source of energy. Blood shouldn't be shed just for us to eat."
