I was a vegetarian through most of undergrad school, then I got sick, really sick and ended up in the hospital. One of the tests indicated that I was anemic, which was very surprising as I've taken a multi-vitamin with iron since I turned 16. Any how to make a long story short, I found out that I don't metabolize vegetable forms of iron, so in order to be healthy I cannot be a practicing vegetarian every day. Red meat 2-3 times/week, doctor's orders.
