"If your way of curbing calorie guilt at a fast food restaurant is to go for the vegetarian option, you might be in for a shock.

Characterised by illusions of virtue, it turns out that the veggie dishes are no less healthy than their meaty counterparts, with experts claiming that they are often higher in calories and sodium…."

My vegetarian friends aren't vegetarian for health reasons, they are vegetarians for moral reasons.

I know a couple people who are vegetarian for health reasons, not moral reasons. But it's more that meat doesn't agree with them, not that they think they're magically avoiding calories or anything by skipping meat.

Illusion of virtue. This is probably the only instance of that.
