Some people often will say, Being vegetarian, body no strength.

How would you reply?

I have NEVER heard that one, haha. Glad to see people are keeping it fresh with their questions. Hmm, I'd probably laugh because I couldn't take them seriously. They might see it that way because when you get older, most people have problems with their cholesterol, so their doctors recommend a vegetable based diet to bring it down. I guess it's not a negative association if you think of it that way, but why waste youth being unhealthy and save it for when you're older? You'll enjoy life more then and now if you embrace it sooner :)!

I heard that a lot in my country. Most people think that vegetarian is only suitable for old man. I don't tell them anything, I just show them that vegetarian is healthier and meat-eater. And besides, I also told them that vegetarian is my choice, a choice to live in compassion, a choice to live in peace, no cruelty in life. And it's a modern lifestyle choice, not for old man.

That is very well said.
