I usually don't comment on the boards, but I'd like to say I'm impressed by how civil this conversation seems to be so far. When I see forum posts on the subject, they're often filled with pure hate and vitriol from people on both sides of the debate. Good on all of you

I'm not a vegetarian at all but I usually only have meat 3-4 days per week. It's just my diet, designed to be healthy but delicious/sustainable. Not rooted in any moral beliefs.

When I do eat meat it's almost always salmon or chicken.

Honestly, I think vegetarianism is the most logical option in addition to it being better morally. But I am not a vegetarian.

I can't stand the taste or texture of most vegetables. Like, not at all. I've tried to develop a taste for them, but I just can't. But it sucks that I am contributing to an industry that is not only wasteful but cruel as well. At this point, I just hope we can start growing meat efficiently within my lifetime.

I do eat more seafood than I do any other type of meat, though, so I guess there is that.

I do, but its not intentional or anything. I rarely eat meat (like maybe about 3 times a month or less on average). It just takes too long to cook and to be honest, it is really expensive. Other plants and beans and rice even has some protein in it, so I don't see why I should spend an extra $100 or more a month on groceries. It is just not affordable, especially since it takes so long to cook. And I like to extra cook mine because I don't want to end up in the hospital like other people I know. Although I have been getting into lots of trouble with my doctor lately, because I don't eat enough protein they say, so I have eaten more meat this month than previously. But only because I'm made too. I still don't eat as much as they want me too though.

Oh....and I don't like fish. Any fish. With the exception of fish sticks in lots of ketchup. It is too strong, and often it makes me sick because of the strong taste. It's the most expensive meat where I live though, with the exception of fishing in the lakes which are getting more and more polluted these days, so that is probably a good thing.

What about squid, clams, lobsters, shrimp, scallops (very tasty too), crab, mussels or octopus? and not all sushi is made of fish. Imho, most fish tastes better raw than boiled, but to tell you the truth, salmon and tuna are the only fish that I would cook, since they have more fat.

I had a very very long talk with my nutritionist about being vegetarian.

In conclusion, vegetarianism isn't very healthy for the human body.

I know a vegetarian that has being one ALL HER LIFE, and she has a very weak body, small for her age, she gets sick a lot, she has to take vitamins.

But it's all about one's decision!

Those too. When I think of fish, I usually tend to think of anything that lives in the ocean. It all tastes bleh! to me.

A Very very long one?
anyway yes its a lot they would be missing out even if they can get more energy or feel lighter for jogging, but more on strength and such would drop even if they use additional stuff as one would do.
But there are few things you could only get from meat like how cures works by sending in some organisms the system can learn and protect it self from like how children become very sick very young (flu and many other things, from air-born, fluids etc).

Do I eat a more seafood then red meat..Debatable but I prefer to give my animal protein a decent chance at escaping my dinner plate. I hunt deer, moose, and bear with either a bow or my beloved Cassandra. And I only eat fish I catch with either spear or rod. I earn my flesh fix unlike so many of you lazy self righteous types who only earn it through the cash in your wallet.

And fyi there is no difference between a fish and a deer. Both have a pulse and both have a soul. Thinking your better because you eat fish over red meat is an insult to the animal that either gave up it's life or had it taken from it.
