      i can't stand people who say, one vegetarian won't make a difference, because suply and demand don't exist. Nutrition issues, a falsehood probabaly created by the meat industry, except if your vegan, b12.

        Congrats, Mr. Paun. You just successfully crashed and burned a thread of gentle discussion by bringing in hate (can't stand people), politics (supply and demand don't exist), and conspiracy (created falshood).

          so sorry to come late into this thread

          Haha yeah, Ive been veggie for like... 2 weeks now, 1 and 1/2 probably. I'm still struggling a little, but i dont really have craving for meat. I didnt even really want mini corn dogs or chicken nuggets at lunch yestarday (that days school lunch). I looked at one of the chicken nuggets, saw an unbreaded part, and just thought 'okay i'm not gonna eat that'. Right now, and until i get some vitamin suppliments, i'm eating very poorly. I need to shape up my diet, and get the suppliments. I also really want to go vegan this summer.

          my thought: nothing should be treated that way.

          my cause: animal rights

          oh btw, after reading more in this thread, if you didnt know. Jeremy is veggie.

            I became a vegetarian because I simply love animals.

            I did absolutely no researching before hand, it just felt right.

            I feel exactly the same on this diet. Basically because It was so long ago that I ate meat, and I've changed in so many ways. My diets pretty shit really, lots of junk :P


            There are only nutrient concerns if your a freaking idiot. All my fellow veggies will agree with me there...

            And no I don't miss meat. But, I do miss how easy it is, fast food etc. Its a real hassle sometimes, but just knowing you have the will power to beat something like that is freakin sweet.
            i am a veggie unicyclist as well and i entierly agree ^ (with the above)

                  surely you'd just be glad that they're saving animals cruelty and death? or is it that you're annoyed that someone can get in to your social group too easily, that they're somehow devaluing your social status?

                    I love animals too, but they're farmed for a reason.

                      My brother got married 2 weeks ago and the entire wedding was vegan. By that I mean that everything served there was organic and vegan, even the wedding cake. I believe there were some vegan related vows as well.

                      All of the food was great.

                          Ha ha I like that way of looking at it.

                          I lived with some veggies for a year and in some way I guess it effected me as I eat far less meat these days, mostly as I can't afford to buy both meat and veg and I try and get my 5 portions thing in every day, but you can make some amazing things without a huge slab of meat.

                          I would never turn though, I love a good bacon buttie more than anything else.

                          I have a question for any female veggies out there too.

                          If you were pregnant and your craving was for meat, which some folk say cravings come from your body needing certain nutrients etc, would you eat meat?

                                People like you make me want to not even ever try to be veg or vegan.

                                I have a friend who has been veg for at least 6 years. Last I checked, she still ate fish. Her reasoning is that red meat animals are cooped up their whole lives, stuffed in small overcrowded cages and whatnot. They walk around in their own excrement and trample/peck each other.

                                Fish on the other hand, live freely, swimming in the ocean. Their lives abruptly end when they are caught. The difference, in her eyes, lies in the treatment of the animal BEFORE it is killed to be eaten.

                                I've toyed with the idea of not eating meat, but I think what it really comes down to is that meat is an inexpensive form of nutrition. Although its true that our bodies do no require meat and that an overconsumption can have negative health effects, meat eaten in moderation has positive health benefits.
