    Default Vegetarianism

    Are you a vegetarian? Would you ever consider being one and what do you think about vegetarianism? I didn't mean to make the poll multiple choice.

    Real women eat meat!

    Seriously though, I think most people eat too much meat. In our family we eat fish 3-4 times a week, white meat 1-2 times, and red meat maybe once or twice. I think children need meat to grow properly, but adults can do with less meat and more fish and vegetables.

    My friend tried vegetarianism for a while, and she didn't do it right, and ended up in the hospital. But it can be healthy (for adults) if done properly.

    I am for vegetarianism, though I am not one - yet, but my sister is one already for 3 years and she is doing just fine.

    Certainly not. Vegetarianism is contrary to human nature. Our ancestors would laugh out loud if they found out what vegetarians were up to. There are some valid social reasons for vegetarianism however meat should be included in a well balanced diet. Vegetarians are generally primitive sub-humans who forsake their human nature.

    It's funny how everyone has their biases, the FLESH eaters, the non-FLESH eaters. Many people actually say the opposite of what you just said, that our bodies were not made to eat FLESH and digest FLESH. But Hey I'm just a "primitive sub-human" to you.

    I'm currently vegetarian who eats no flesh....but my aim is VEGANISM....I eat vegetarian most the time, and a couple days I do the Vegan thang. It's hard to find even vegetarian foods without cheese and milk. I am really diggin' this book my boy got me for my B-Day.....and for yall that think Vegan food has no taste, yall really needa try out what's in this book. Caribbean Vegans and Vegetarians got that FLAVA!

    I also eat fruits and vegetables, I have a well-rounded diet. The people who claim it's unwise to eat meat are usually modern liberal youngsters who know nothing about biology and are just parroting things they hear from others however there are good arguments on both sides, vegetarianism may appeal to people due to morality.

    As for you being primitive, I don't know. I said that vegetarians in general were primative sub-humans however that's not the case for all. It would depend on your reasoning for becoming a vegetarian. Did you do it because you don't like the way animals are treated or because you wanted to lose weight? Those are valid reasons however people who refuse to eat meat for pointless reasons are certainly forsaking their human nature. Though humans can eat a variety of foods, we are also meat eaters...we were created to be that way.

    I always been skinny so it was not about losing weight. It was about spirituality and not wanting to eat DEAD CARCASES and eating the FLESH of other creatures. I am not into the eating flesh thing.

    Actually, vegetarians are the more evolved ones among us. I however am not that evolved, I enjoy hamburgers too much.

    Hey MK, that book looks awesome, I'm going to check it out! The problem with veggie food sometimes is it's so bland.
