for the week, pit, i'm going to try and cut meat out of my diet..
a noble effort, even if unsuccessful.

not really out of any anti-meat principles, more out of curiosity about how such a move would affect the body.

discuss, share stories, advice..

Hey... great.
Try going on living without meat.
I'm 22 years old and lived without meat since earliest childhood and I'm still alive and super healthy.
Good luck, though.

P.S.: I am not having problems knowing that meat was made out of animals... I just can't eat it.

advise: read around diets and eat the right things or you will become ill.

I cant stand vegetarians who are anti-meat because of moral principles, especially those crazy vegans. Good luck with not eating meat, I just love it <3

Why would anyone not want to eat meat? If people don't eat meat then why the **** is it there? Animals have no use except to be eaten and enjoyed.

Yea, I think it's kinda ridiculous also...animals eat other animals, so us(animals) have a right to eat the animals.

Think about it, if a pig was super huge enough i'm sure it wouldn't think twice about eating you

I love meat, it's my favorite thing ever..

I'd understand the whole Vegetarian/Vegan thing if Cows, Pigs and Chickens etc. had some other use...they don't, so I eat them

Just like a lettuce just sits on the ground, so I eat that too

It's a very simple principle...

And of course my stepmother is an avid vego' and everything she cooks tastes like ass...

I mean 'Vegetarian Lasagna' it doesn't even sound inviting *shudders at the thought*

Must....resist....urge to rant....overpowering....

Phew. Right, no moral stuff.

Go for it. It's never done me any harm, biologically. Vegetarianism isn't for everyone though; I think some people's bodies need meat more than others. Humans aren't really built to be carnivorous predators however. I don't take any vitamin supplements and I'm healthier now than when I ate meat. When you go back to eating meat, think about where it comes from before you buy it. Half the antibiotics produced in the US are fed to farm animals, and they're also pumped full of hormones to make them grow bigger. All that is likely to be in your body too, especially if you eat cheap meat from fast food restaurants for example instead of organically farmed stuff. It eventually will make your body resistant to antibiotics which is bad when you get sick in later life.

You might also want to try cutting out additives, E-numbers etc if you're on a health kick. It's no good not eating meat if you're still going to eat junk food, for example.

Nice goal, I just decided yesterday that I'm going to try no meat for August and if I like it, continue to be a vegetarian.

It's not that, it's the fact that a cow has to have been pregnant with a calf before it can be milked. If the calf is male then it gets sent off to the slaughterhouse (if it's female, then the process starts over again), and vegans don't want to fund that by buying dairy products. Commercial agriculture is financed by people buying non-meat products as much as meat itself, and if you don't agree with intensive farming then one way to protest is to not buy anything that comes from it.

It's possible to be selective about which animal products you use, for example some people don't mind leather bags, shoes etc because they're only byproducts of an animal that would have been used for meat anyway so you're arguably making good use of the body. However, the same people could be against buying fur, because animals with desirable pelts are nowadays mostly killed specifically for them.

I think killing animals just for fur is horrible. So I'll agree with this.

A question: Are people upset/angry that the animals are killed for food, or are they upset because of the manner in which the animals are killed?

Eat people instead. Like little children and little people. Asians for example.

A week won't really give you an accurate picture of how cutting out meat would affect your life. In that space of time, you'll probbaly just notice a change in your stool, and very possibly more wind. But it won't really be enought ime for you to experience whatever benefits a balanced vegetarian lifestyle brings.
#24
Good luck TS. But I really don't understand why someone would take meat out of their diet, unless they were obese.

Well, having just been to the supermarket, I can see advantages. If you're prepared to eat battery famr chickens that are probably raped every day, then chicken is cheap. Corn-fed, free-range organic ones on the other hand... well, £10 for a decent sized chicken isn't cheap.
#26
That's how I started out about a year ago. Going without meat for a week only showed me how I didn't really need it. I just elected to continue not eating it.

After that, I discovered the ethical concerns with eating meat, and the horrible practices of the US meat industry.
#28
Good luck with it and kudos if you pull through with it!

I love meat far too much to do this though

You can't eat it because you've never ate it (you're missing some enzymes to digest meat, that your body only makes if you eat meat for a while). All kids feel sick when they first eat meat.

Anyway, if you decide to go veggo, get some supplement because you'll be missing a lot of vitamins and things like that.

I love meat. And anytime anyone tries to convince me otherwise, I point to my front teeth and tell the person that their primary function is to tear meat (the canines in particular).

More UltraMatic than you.
