TreeHugger.com Founder Graham Hill On Benefits Of Weekday Veg Diet

Graham Hill, the hippie-raised founder of TreeHugger.com, isn’t vegetarian — well, not really.  At this year’s TED conference, Hill spoke about his controversial dietary dilemma.

“About a year ago I asked myself a question: Knowing what I know, why am I not a vegetarian?,” Hill asked. “After all, I’m one of the green guys. I grew up with hippie parents in a log cabin; I started a site called Tree Hugger. I care about this stuff. I knew that eating a mere hamburger a day could increase my risk of dying by a third. Cruelty: I knew that the 10 billion animals we raise each year for meat are raised in factory farm conditions that we, hypocritically, wouldn’t even consider for our own cats, dogs and other pets. Environmentally: meat amazingly causes more emissions that all the transportation combined…all of it. And beef production uses a hundred times the water that most vegetables do.”

And yet still, still, Graham couldn’t put down the burger. So he created his own system: Weekday Veg. The idea is that one eats “nothing with a face Monday through Friday. And then, “on the weekend, your choice.”

The outcome: Graham says he feels healthier, better about his choices and he’s even saving some moola. Not a bad combo!
