Yes. Meat and potatoes are my favorite. Filet mignon. Rack of lamb, chicken.
I was a vegetarian for a total of about 3.5 years. I chose vegetarian to be cruelty free and also in an effort to improve my health and decrease my weight. Being cruelty free is a total plus, and I lost a lot of weight, but unfortunately I also lost nearly all of my hair. I didn't know it was my veggie diet until long after I was diagnosed with vitamin deficiencies, and supplements and shots did not restore the vitamins and protein I was not ingesting from meat.
Soy protein is okay, but has additives that I get sick from, usually MSG, so I would not ever eat it.
Reluctantly I went back to eating meat. I still need supplements from the damage done to my system. I am a little heavier than I want to be, but I prefer to have hair and not look sick.
Everyone is different, everyone should not look the same, but even in nature animals rely upon meat to sustain their protein metabolizing bodies. Your body is built to break down protein whether you provide it or not, and it will substitute with your own hair, cartilage, bones if you don't put some into it.
Zero meat here.
And NO, it ain't because I give a flying fuck about the animals. However, I do give a shit about my health and what I put in my body!
People care more for what type of fuel they put in their cars, than what type of "fuel" they put in their bodies these days!!
I've never felt better physically - Have not touched meat for the past 5+ yrs. Have ran three marathons since, and not too shabby of a time either
Brilliant - I love it.
I hate meat but that's still brilliant!
Agree with Llamas.
It is sad when people think that all vegetarians eat is leaves and a few vegetables.
I used to love meat when I ate it, but I don't miss it at all anymore, because what I eat now is great, and I'm not missing out. A lot of the different meals I eat now way outdo anything with meat. And besides, these days there are so many meat substitutes that it barely makes much difference (although I prefer to eat homemade meals).
Even my mom says that since I became vegetarian, it has really opened up a lot of new meals to her, and she would happily eat a vegetarian meal over the usual roast chicken most days.
I have this great distaste for handling raw meat, so I rarely cook with meat at all. Not to mention, it has an incredibly short shelf life. One of the greatest burgers I've ever had was a black bean burger(no meat). Soooooooooooo good. I make a ton of foods at home with eggs and beans and such for protein. Nom nom nom.
I do, however, love me some bacon. Don't think I could live without it. I have yet to find a suitable substitute.
