According to Rachna Govani, CEO and co-founder of Foodstand over email with Bustle, “nausea, heartburn, and indigestion” could be to blame for not digesting meat well, and these symptoms can prove to be incredibly uncomfortable. If you feel sick to your stomach during work, you’ll have a harder time concentrating and being productive. Swap meat for a salad for lunch.
High Blood pressure
“One important problem you may not feel – high blood pressure. High blood pressure can be silent, and still cause damage,” says Neil Grimmer, founder of Habit over email with Bustle. “Eating more vegetables tends to lower blood pressure. But a vegetarian DASH diet is the best. If you are one of the millions of Americans with high blood pressure, this may be a good sign that you’d do better cutting back on meat,” Grimmer adds.
