I'm sick of these people who are ignorant of facts--the kind that diss vegetarians because we care about animals or the environment. These fools have bought into the lies and propoganda put out there by the douche bags running the meat industry--the same douche bags who happen to be some of the country's most powerful lobbyists. There was that bullshit ad campaign that they ran a while ago: "Beef, it's what's for dinner." Yeah, beef's for dinner, but colon cancer, arterial slerosis, high blood pressure, animal cruelty and a destroyed planet are your karmic desert.

Now this is how you start a fucking book.

Ok. What about us who eat in a proportional meat to veggie balance? I feel true omnivores are left out of this discussion

Hey.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
Please come play Halo with me.
I am trying to give up meat.

No beef or pork, but chicken is too hard to resist.

False.
It is tho

That doesn't necessarily mean switching to a vegetarian diet is difficult.
But keeping your old habits is easier than changing your ways, because it is passive.
And being passive is easy.

I've been thinking of trying being to be vegetarian for a while again. I think I was one week short of three months when I tried it last year.

The part about the health side effects assumes meat eaters all eat a grossly disproportionate amount of meat compared to what they should be. Ideally if one keeps meat to 15-20% of their diet (going by Australian research on the matter) it shouldn’t inflict any harm on their body.

I’m not going to make an excuse for the humanity of having meat in your diet because everybody knows even first world countries have atrocious standards for the handling of food-producing livestock.

I have no doubt I’d be able to make the switch near instantly with only 2-3 weeks before I adapt to the diet, but like quitting smoking there’s a level of mental semantics required that I just don’t have the drive to produce. It’s an incredibly selfish mindset but I acknowledged I’m a piece of shit years ago tbh

Eating meat really only represents negative consequences over a plant-based diet, even in moderation.

Most people do. In fact, even a little bit of meat consumed per week could be considered too much, considering humans aren't really designed to digest it.

Just remember meat only taste good because of the seasoning/curing it goes through post-harvest. If you repeat the same process with something like tofu it tastes excellent as well. There's nothing inherently good tasting about animal carcass.

I eat everything raw. i.e unseasoned. I let the food add flavour to itself.

Ya fuckin' ganderneck.
For someone with a health condition like mine, eliminating meat would reduce my protein options to virtually zero. Not until they manage to create some edible food substance that contains the required levels of protein with minimal to no levels of carbs, starches, sugars etc. and make it commercially available.

Unless you're buying all of your meat directly from the guy who killed the cow, it's been flavoured already. Why do you think it tastes so good?

if this is flavoured, then holy shit what does it takes like raw?

Chicken on its own is literally chewy rubber.

Yeah, violently butchered creatures taste bad. Who would have thought?

Something called Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth.

If you wanna know:
People usually get the beginning stages of it from antibiotics wiping out the good bacteria in their gut, which allows antibiotic resistant bacteria to start colonizing your intestines. It starts more in the colon, giving people IBS or even Colitis but with a very poor diet and general lifestyle it can make its way into your small intestine. Once that happens you can't really process sugar and carbs anymore because the bacteria (and fungi like yeast as well) feeds on it like crazy and it wreaks havoc on the rest of your body producing exotoxins and mycotoxins that circulate throughout your bloodsteam, which can give you all manner of problems like arthritis, fibromyalgia, migraines, muscle cramps, chronic fatigue and inflammation, depression and anxeity. Not to mention all the digestive problems you'll have.

You can eliminate it with a very strict diet, high levels of probiotics, and anti-microbial supplements, but you have to go through hell during that process, since killing the overgrowth causes it to basically release all the toxins it was slowly secreting in a much bigger 'dose' you could say. Something called a Herxheimer reaction. Which could actually really damage your liver and kidneys so you have to be very careful. People with other infections diseases like Lyme disease go through the same process and it can actually kill you if you kill too much too fast with certain infections.

What're you trying to imitate Verbatim for? Everything you find good-tasting has a reason for tasting so good. If animals tasted like crap, there'd be no reason for traditional families' menus to be so reliant on meat. It's on the menu because it tastes good because it provides a lot of nutrients.

You're eating dead Yeast, who worked hard to grow to that size until someone baked them to death.

How does that make you feel.

we wouldn't have to cook meat first if it didn't taste like shit basally
