      Actually I can. I just don't know whether it is suitable.

          I know what you mean.
          you know, there is something you like to do, but you just can not do.

    That sounds like a personal question to me.  If you feel that meat (and all animal products for that) are doing your body harm.  Or if you simply feel that animals are treated "inhumane" (would that be inanimale?) then you might want to look into being a vegan.  Just remember a true vegan refrains from all animal products. 

    If you don't hold these ideals to strongly then I expect you will just be missing out on a big steak, bowl of ice cream, or omelet for no good reason.  If you do hold these strongly then you have a reason to miss out.

    Personally, I enjoy animals in many different dishes and styles.

      I like your reply. I eat meat, but not much, For one time I realise that whether we have rigths to kill animals for food. but I am worried if I do not eat meat, I wii not gain enough nutrients.

        You can very easily maintain your health and get the proper nutrients as a vegetarian.

        I stopped eating meat (a gradual process ) 7 years ago, and have not been sick since, really not one time.

        I am not a vegetarian though as I still eat seafood.

        But the true vegetarians and vegans,are by far the healthiest, most fit, best complexion, high energy and usually intelligent/empathetic people i know.

        its a good team to join,especially if your overweight

      I could never be a vegan (because I love meat too much).


      However! I never EVER eat veal or lamb because they are baby animals. All I can think of are little baby lambs bleating or little baby cows mooing, when I see those types of entrees in restaurants.

      Baaaaaa-aaaaa-aaa!

      Last week, I was with a friend at an Indian restaurant. He ordered lamb curry (much to my dismay). I pulled up a picture on my blackberry of a little baby lamb and shoved it in his face. I think he felt a little guilty. wink

          He was probably embarrassed moreso or thought you a little strange.  Lamb could have been mutton, it's all called lamb in a restaurant.

    Why not stop eating altogether? Plants can feel, too sad

      really, you mean its no use becoming a vegan??

    I personally don't see any sense in this. Somebody always eats somebody, this is how this World operates, and denying it is not going to do you any good. If we were designed to be vegans, our digestive system would have been seriously different. smile

      Veal is lovely when cooked right.  I can do a mean weiner snitzel with honey carrots, broccoli, pine nuts and scalloped potato

    I eat some seafood, but no other types of meat. I hate the taste, the texture, all of it. My digestive system is seriously different. If I even so much as have chicken broth in a soup I get sick. I take a few supplements and I'm a very healthy person. I'm not sure your motivation for becoming a vegan. Maybe you could explain?

    As far as health is concerned, you can eat meat and be unhealthy, you can be a vegetarian and be unhealthy, or you can be a vegan and be unhealthy.  It is really about making good choices with the food that you do eat.  You can be healthy living any of these lifestyles.  You need to eat:
    *unrefined whole grains (brown rice, quinoa, barley, etc)
    *low in saturated fat proteins (fish, chicken, lean steak, low fat cheeses, etc)
    *fresh fruit and vegetables (organic is best)

    Stay away from processed foods and read the ingredients of anything you buy. 

    Good luck on whichever style you choose.

    I've been a vegetarian most of my life for health reasons.  My parents and their parents were vegetarians.  I do eat milk and egg products.  Once in awhile if I can't get anything that is not vegetarian (very seldom) I will eat turkey, chicken or fish, but no cow (mad cow disease risk) and no pork (dirty) and no red meat or shell fish (scavengers).  I just like my body to be cleaner and leaner.  I feel happy to honor my body because "you are what you eat."  And "what you sow you shall also reap."  There are many studies done, one of the foremost at Loma Linda University, CA on a group of vegetarians over many years.  The health benefits are ongoing.  Thanks for your question.
