I went vegan for a week and then vegetarian the following week two years ago. The vegan week was rough.

I wish I could go vegetarian but I love meat too much. :P I recently heard of "flexitarian" for lazy people like me who like animals and like meat so we just try not to have too much. Yes, I'm a hypocrite! ;)

not me.

how do you replace meat in your diet? and did you think about that part, even though you didn't really realize you stopped eating meat?

for me it was a cost issue. a chunk of meat for about two meals' worth costs about half to 3/4 as much as my entire week's worth of vegetables. i am poor. i still eat it if it's served elsewhere, but when i'm cooking for myself at home, which is 99% of the time, i don't bother. i compensate with lentils, eggs, nuts, yogurt, and lots of fruit.

Same. + I figure if I really want a steak or something I want to go somewhere where they do it right.

I almost never cook meat at home (bacon is the only exception). So whenever I cook at home, I'm eating veggies, rice, pasta, lentils (I make a mean lentil soup). I was vegetarian for years, so I don't mind. Bacon is all I ever really missed.

But if I go out to eat (which I'm doing less of to save money), I'll order meat.

I did the vegan thing for a week with a friend of mine, and by the end of it, I was willing to kill someone for a hunk of cheese.

I'm practically a carnivore, although I do eat a good amount of grains too. My ex on the other hand, would go through 3 month bouts of unintentional vegetarianism whenever she thought about meat too much and got grossed out by it every couple of years.

how do you replace meat in your diet?

It's easier than you'd think. Essentially, you just use a lot of different soy products. Soy, tofu, beans etc.

I've been a vegetarian for about six years now. Once you get the hang of it, you'll be able to fix up quick nutritious meals in a heartbeat. Its not for everyone, but it can be a pretty cheap and healthy diet. Mind you, I do eat eggs, drink milk, and lately I've taken fish cod oil just to make sure I don't miss out on anything. Those omega oils can be a bitch to come by.

Animals definitely have some level of consciousness and experience pain, and I'd never deny they have a right to be free from pain. But overall I can't say killing an animal painlessly is immoral, I believe right to life is entirely rooted in the concept of ownership of one's body.

So basically I only eat free range meat and byproducts, been doing that for the past 12 years. But fish for example, I don't think there are too many ways to kill them painlessly, so I haven't had a bite of any kind of seafood for the past decade.

I don't think that animals have the same sort of right to life that we can say human beings do, but as a good follower of utilitarianism, I think that the morality of an action is essentially dictated by the ability of the receiving party to suffer. It actually doesn't make sense to me not to eat seafood but to eat other kinds of meat... a lobster or a fish has significantly less ability to suffer than a cow or a pig does. It is generally accepted that a pig has the emotional capacity of a 2 or 3 year old child, which makes it perhaps smarter than a dog, and for me, too high a life form to consume.

Essentially, you just use a lot of different soy products.

Soy has a false-estrogen in it which is linked to Alzheimer's. Horrible for you if you're female.

i still eat fish once in a while, maybe once a month. otherwise no meat for 3 or 4 years, I can't really remember. slowly cutting back on milk products but it's hard to eat at restaurants so I usually end up getting things with cheese when I'm eating out. when I'm home it's only organic milk products and local sourced cage free eggs now which has been my goal for a while.

ryan patrick
03-22-2010, 01:07 AM
the cage free eggs keep having embryos in them though which is really gross so we are probably going to eat less eggs.

lol @ quick google of this


Earlier this year when considering whether it would permit health claims for soy, the FDA rejected the abstract of the Hawaii study for a few reasons, including the fact that if the study results were valid, there would be more dementia and Alzheimers in Japan than in Hawaii (because more soy is consumed in Japan) -- but the reverse is true, suggesting it wasn't an effect from soy consumption the researchers may have been seeing.

There are two kinds of people: sheep and sharks. Anyone who is a sheep is fired. Who is a sheep?
Errr, excuse me... which is the one people like to hug?
Gutsy question. You're a shark. Sharks are winners, and they don't look back because they have no necks. Necks are for sheep.
