    I've just signed up to the 30 day vegetarian challenge and am only on day 2 and I need my meat!!

    I walked past the Deli and the fresh smell of roasted beef steak with chilli and greek salad almost made me collapse with hunger... I don't think I can carry on..

    So I'm leaving now to get my dose of meat otherwise I'll have to write a hub of my untimely death due to lack of meat!!

    Have you ever tried so hard to resist something soo good? what was the result of it?

      The key is to make everything you eat delicious.  Willpower will only get you so far.

    Don't give up, Jasmine.  Maybe it would be easier to ease yourself off the meat (no dirty jokes please) gradually, instead of going 'cold turkey'..pun intended.

    Have a little less meat each day, and more veggies and fruit etc. instead.  Convince yourself you can get by just fine without meat...of course you can!  Just keep saying no, and sooner or later you'll believe it.

    You'll feel better too..maybe even lose some weight (if you find that a problem).  Good luck! smile

    My wife is vegan (No meat or dairy) and I don't think I could do that.  It worked really well for her though!

    I went completely cold turkey once and it didn't really bother me.  After all, I was already eating very little meat.

    Perhaps what timorous said will help you.  Just a little at a time.  (BTW, so hard not to make a joke. tongue)  I used to joke, as a vegetarian, I only ate two kind of meat.  I'm going to refrain from saying any more.
