Being a vegetarian doesnt mean you only eat veggies...
I also eat a lot of bread , Fruit , Candy!!! And Animal products like eggs , Milk Cheese (Not of people who put animals in small cages and such..
Only from people who not hurt the animals...
If no one buys it from those people then they won't sell anything and hopefully stop it...

Kind of funny because animals are use for alot more than food.
leather shoes - wool socks- milk and eggs- not to mention all the testing done on them for beauty products.

wirodeu
09-14-2006, 19:00:28
I know about the Leather and the Beaty products
But for milk,Wool And eggs There are no animals killed!
And not all beaty products are tested on animals...
Did you know that the use Eye-spray at the eyes of an bunny

Hollandgirl
09-14-2006, 19:01:34

I cant choose because i eat both. without meat, it is much harder to get good amounts of protean which builds muscle or even strength at all.

Adventure
09-15-2006, 01:35:34
Well I am kind of a vegetarian. I choose the first option, but I was better for me to choose the last option. I don?t eat meat from mammals, but once a month I eat fish (not all species) and once a year I eat good treated chicken. So I am not a real vegetarian. But I am really against factory farming, which is created by politics and economy and don?t think at all at the well fair of the animals or the farmers. Just like the first part of my signature say: All animals should be able to express all their natural behaviours. That?s how a feel about it.

I don?t use beauty products, which has nothing to do that I am against testing of animals, lol. However the discussion is going to be hard when you started about medicines. But I do think that lots of the test are not necessary. Also when on product is written that it is not tested on animals, it doesn?t mean that it is never tested on animals. It only means that it isn?t tested on animals the last five years. And also when only one ingredient is modified, added or left out the product must be tested again on animals. It?s our LAW. Well I am speaking for the Netherlands now. I don?t know how it?s arranged in other countries.

i love meat but ya i don't like how animals have to die for it though

wirodeu
09-15-2006, 14:45:07
My first half year as a vegetarian i also did eat fish but now i don't eat it anymore...
And if you choose the second option you don't care for Animal tested and such...
And you dont care for the Farms that abuse the animals...
If you choose the third option you do eat meat but do care about those things... Just to know...

You could have also put another option, for people that eat meat but wouldn't mind to be a vegetarian (which is my case)... :D

i dont get it.
Do u guys ask a lion to quit eating other animals because they die.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
This is the balance man.
You cant convince other people not to eat vegetables.
I eat both and i am happy.
I hate people who fight against being non-vegetarians etc.
That sucks man.

No, but we eat only little meat or fish (once in a week or two). But I know that I wouldn't eat meat if I had to kill the animal myself...

It doesn't mean that a lion gotta quit eating other animals...
That's just how nature is...
Kill Or get killed
But as humans it's not like that....
I'm 2 years vegetarian and still haven't been killed!
But some people think it's weird to be vegetarian....
Well i dont care!

doglover
09-17-2006, 20:49:31
I don't think it's weird being a vegetarian. In fact, I think it's good to be a vegetarian and I wounder why I'm still not a vegetarian...I don't even like meat! Sometimes it makes me sick :sick: blearg...

Maniac
09-18-2006, 08:03:40

i really cant understand that ur a vegetarian becuz u think that animals get killed becuz of it.
Animals get killed by all sorta other things.

only 3 Vegetarians yet...
Because there aren't that many vegetarians here. Many people don't like meat but aren't vegetarians (like me), and there are also people that "love" meat!
I'm not a vegetarian because of my parents, if I was a vegetarian, my mom would have to do two kinds of food for lunch and dinner, because my dad "loves" meat, and my mom wouldn't also be a vegetarian! My brother would be the only one that might be a vegetarian like me! So, I eat meat, though I don't like some kind of meat... :P

I wish I'd found this thread earlier, I would have voiced my vote! I've been a vegetarian for... let's see, seven years now. I don't eat any meat/poultry/fish, I drink soy milk (because I prefer it to cow's milk), I eat LOTS of cheese (couldn't stay away from it!), and I'll eat eggs in other things (like baked goods), but not by themselves (because I can't stand the taste).

I don't expect anyone else to become a vegetarian simply because I am--it's an individual choice for each person. I'm the only one in my family who doesn't eat meat. I chose to become a vegetarian because I feel that it's healthier (as long as you get all your nutrients/vitamins), because I don't like the idea of eating something that could once moo or cluck at me, and because I've never cared much for meat.

....I don't know why I felt inclined to include all that info; I guess I'm just so used to explaining my choice to others, it's kinda second nature to give my spill about it.

It looks like there are 6 of us now!

Put up here what you think about being a vegetarian.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
as for the first post

being a vegetarian is good as it's nutritional if you have the right ingredients to make yourself meals everyday, however i've heard that you'll probably need some sort of meat in your diet..

either way i'm about to eat a green popsicle

Crimsonthread
03-12-2008, 01:15:33
Eating meat is really not a nutritional necessity for the human diet, as long as you are smart with what you eat. It's very possible (and I've found easy) to get all of the nutrients/vitamins needed from a vegetarian diet. I don't take any dietary supplements (i.e. vitamin pills, etc), and I have my blood tested once a year to make sure everything's on track--I haven't had a problem with it in the 7 years I've been a vegetarian. The only vitamin that's hard to obtain on a strict vegetarian/vegan diet is b12, which is needed only in trace amounts. Since I eat dairy products, I don't have a problem with that, either.

That green popsicle sounds pretty good, btw. :)

Meat contains essential amino acids that come from meat only. They are the building blocks of life. I checked the AMA and other similar medical websites and they stated you can live healthy on veg diet providing you take a LOT of vitamin K or you will die. Any diet that requires copious amounts of vitamin K to prevent death can't be a healthy one. I would also like to point out that we are hunters by nature, we were made that way. We're not herbivores or carnivores, we're omnivores. The fact that you eat things that "taste" just like meat proves my point. You crave it. Your body is telling you you need it. It's like when you have small children or are pregnant, the doctor will ask you strange things like do you eat paint chips or ashes. Each strange thing you eat or crave means something in particular is missing from your diet like iron etc. From my medical classes I have learned that you only need 4 oz of meat per day. That's about what you get in a happy meal. Not a whole lot. Don't eat meat with every meal and don't eat a lot of red meat. I like the asian way of thinking, meat is a side dish, not a main dish. They say americans stink of meat, that's because they eat far too much of it.

**I found here a post from somebody on another site, I really like his point of view and totally agree with it. Keep in mind he's french speaking so don't let the bad grammar and typos throw you off.

Hugo_Smith
04-28-2008, 18:40:12
I've been a Veggie my whole life, and the main reasons I stayed one is because;

Most meat is from an animal kept in poor conditions
I love animals
Vegetarians live longer than meat-eaters
And so on.

I won't expect anyone to change from a personal opinion, but I hope some people will consider becoming a Vegetarian.

I'm not exactly old enough to have kids, but I was born 100% Vegetarian, and my mum and dad never force me to eat veggie things, they let me eat what I want.
But I chose to be a Vegefreak :crazy:

We have a couple of veggie friends,they love my guacamole,green chile cheese enchiladas,chile rellenos & black beans.None of which are vegetarian by design,just happened that way.
Should you come to one of my parties there will be little in the way of meatless food.
