I am!
I can't even stand the smell of meat anymore. Since I've gone vegetarian (5 years or so now, I think), I have felt way less sluggish.

I am! I love the taste of meat (especially chicken), but don't like the idea of eating it....so I eat fake meat instead. Same taste without the whole dead animal thing.

Yes, I am. I hate how people always ask, "But what do you EAT?" They generally assume that because I don't eat meat, I don't eat anything. It is very annoying.

I am! I'm too ethical for my own good; meat tastes lovely, but I'd rather not kill the po' wittle animals. If I have the ability to live a perfectly healthy life, and not have to kill things to do so, why would I? :D

I was vegetarian for 3 years.
until 6 months ago, now i eat chicken and fish, there was no way I could compete at the level I wanted to with a vegetarian diet and that is what is more important to me now, I could gain muscles fine, recover and all of that fine, but it still was not working for me. When I am not training as hard I will go back to not eating any meat again.

Yeah!! I've gotten this exact comment before, "Being a vegetarian is just your own little way of being anorexic." I saw red. I pride myself in eating in a way that is healthy and consciencious, and it hurts when people just assume the worst. I don't judge people for eating meat, so why do they judge me? Infuriating!

the unhealthy thing always bugged me.

I was squatting 455 pounds, benching 315, and deadlifting 575 when I was a vegetarian. and they try to say that you can't have muscles or youll get skinny and unhealthy, that is bs.

Ox don't eat any meat either.

I have a few suede things, I think. But most of my stuff is cotton. Not that I claim to be vegan though. I don't think I could manage without my milk and eggs. :P

I've been a vegetarian for maybe 5 months, its been fine. I sometimes miss the taste of carnage, the next time I eat the flesh of an animal it will be one I hunted myself.

Haha… I'm an ex-"veggie". I used to be one when I was like nine. One day, my dad randomly said, "Jasmine, I want you to start eating more vegetables" - and then, all of a sudden, he just stopped buying meat and he got my mom involved too. I hated it. I hate Morning Star.

It's instilled some good habits in me, though. I only eat fish or chicken and now I absolutely love vegetables. I was thinking about becoming a vegetarian again - but, I lack discipline.

I used to be, and because my brother still is, I generally eat non-meat meals, but I got fairly ill and my doctor preferred me to eat a little meat every week for a while. Honestly, it was stupid to not eat meat and not supply myself with supplements for nutrients I was lacking in (though I always ate vegetables, legumes, pulses, ect. in abundance, it’s not enough) from the age of like, 13 to 17, while I was/am still growing, once that’s all over and done with, I’ll go back to not eating meat and possibly cutting out animals products all together.

I still don’t wear real leather, suede or fur.

i'm not a vegetarian. i think each to their own, but it does strike me as strange when people choose not to eat meat. its natural for us to eat animals, its how the food chain works. fair enough if you dont eat animals raised or killed in an inhumane way, but i think that eating meat is fine.

I'm a vegetarian. I don't care if others eat meat. What bothers me is my friend who is a fake vegetarian. She whispers an order to my friend, getting a chicken burger, and when we get to her house she basically hid behind her husband to eat it. lol. I have never once said I cared about others eating meat, she knows my bf is the biggest meat eater ever, lol. I just think it was ridiculous but I never said anything about it. If she wants to feels the need to hide that she eats meat, that's her malfunction.

@Emma F.

the food chain never involved large factory farms, steroids to make animals overgrow, and forced reproduction.

doesnt sound very natural too me.


if you hunt all your own food then you can talk about what is natural, but there is nothing unnatural about not eating from a factory farm.

a canine's digestive system is not meant to have a vegan diet.

you are forcing your dog to adapt to a cruelty free life, in turn assimilating an animal into an unnatural way of life.

they are from the order, carnivora... carnivore... ahem. meat eater.


the problems:
-there stomachs cannot convert plant vitamins to vitamins there bodys need for natural living.
-a dog cannot get vitamin b12 through anything other then a nother animal, humans can just eat plants or take vitamins, that will not work with a dog. dogs do not digest synthetic vitamins like humans will.
-they have a short intestinal tract, cant digest large ammounts of plants and grains


eliminating plants from a dogs diet because of your own personal philophies is a little bit counter-productive as it is detromental to your dogs health.

EDIT: that was not meant to offend and be bitchy torwards you and how you live but rather help ur dog out.

I'm vegan. I really hate when people invite me places then say "oh wait, you can't eat..." I don't care if I'm not invited, but I hate the misconception that vegetarians/vegans don't eat! I just don't consider salads a complete meal and would much rather prepare my food myself. None of the people that claim I don't eat ever watch me eat, and let me tell you, I'm not exactly a stereotypical health nut vegan. Ha.

I just can't imagine eating an animal, who has feelings like me or my pets. I basically don't even eat the fake stuff anymore either - it was good for transitioning, but I'm a little more creative with my meals now. Plus, I prefer less processed stuff. You know, if I want to pretend I'm healthy. Haha.
