Seems we have a few on here including me and Sypgril. I gave up meat a few years back because I found it fucked my guts up in anything other than small quantities and due to a long standing dislike of factory farming methods. What about others?

I'm a vegetarian, for some 25 years now. I sort of miss meat but couldn't bring myself to eat it now as I hate the thought of something dying just so I can eat it. It would appear that vegetarians have far less likely hood of contracting serious health issues like cancer and dementia so that alone makes me think I made the right choice all those years ago.

If they're from YORKSHIRE then that's two "essential" pieces of info you'll get in the first minute or so!

whenever asked by vegetarians, if i'm one of them I reply:

"I'm a 'level two vegetarian"... and when they ask "what's a level two vegetarian?" I reply by saying

"Well you know how vegetarianism is eating plants, fruits and vegetables?... I simply eat the things that eat the plants, fruits and vegetables"

 

Yup. Me too.

 

I don't fly or travel huge distances so I am happy with my carbon footprint to include the consumption of animals.

Exactly, low fat vegi diet almost killed me.

Nearly the same - lack of protein meant I was wasting away.

My ideal weight is fourteen stone and after ? eighteen months of being veggie I was down to eleven and a half stone with bad skin and my lip would split and bleed in cold weather.

I didn't actually want to start eating meat again but I accepted that I had to do so.

Because eating pure gluten is such a great idea.

It's madness really. The things they do to something to make it look and taste like meat. 
I guess it's 'mock duck' from the chinese - that's gluten in a tin.

You could probably just replace meat protein with vegetable proteins and take a multi-vitamin to get things like zinc and iron, but I suppose that defeats the purpose. The problem I have with vegetarianism is that it makes you fat and unless you eat raw fruit and veg you will eat things that are as unhealthy as eating too much meat such as sugar, wheat, beans and pulses which all have to be processed and detoxified before we can eat them safely.  I think everything in moderation although I would rather not eat meat if there was a healthy alternative that could provide the benefits of meat without the murder.

Pescaterian, been so for about 20 years, rest of family too.

My daughter has been pescaterian for the last six years. She’s staying healthy and cooks a lot for herself from scratch.

I tried it myself but I went back to eating meat after a short time for no other reason than I like meat a lot.

I’m pescatarian though when my daughter is visiting me or I’m at her place. It’s easier than cooking two different things!

Wel, I’m not fat and most people haven’t even noticed I’m a vege as I never mention it unless I absolutely have to.

I've been vegetarian for about 20 years because I like animals and find meat disgusting. That may be related to having french family who eat things like brain and tete de veau :Sick1:.

Tried being vegan for a year but felt ill so went back to vegetarian diet. I think different diets suit different people. I have had no problems had high iron levels throughout pregnancy without any supplements don't often get ill and I'm not fat.

My husband eats meat and the times he eats huge amounts he smells awful to me as he gets a rotting death smell.

      Volkswagen is ending production of its iconic Beetle, closing the door on one of the world's most famous car brands.
      The German company said output would end at its plant in Mexico next July after production of celebration models.
      The Beetle has its roots in Nazi Germany with the creation of a "people's car", but went on to star in a series of successful Disney films as a vehicle called Herbie.
      Beetle was created in 1938 by legendary engineer Ferdinand Porsche - a name now synonymous with fast cars - at the behest of Adolf Hitler, who wanted to see a cheap and practical mass-produced car made available to the German people.
      But the marque found global fame in the 1960s and '70s as Herbie the Love Bug, a racing car with a mind of its own. It was also popular with the 1960s counter-culture, who extolled the Beetle's small, practical, but aesthetic qualities.
