A MAN who extended his life span by avoiding processed meats bitterly regrets having done so, it has emerged.

103-year-old Roy Hobbs never ate sausages, bacon or black pudding apart from a one-off fried breakfast which he admits was mind-bendingly delicious.

He said: “I am over a century old, partly because I’ve exercised extreme self-control when it comes to my base desire for meat.

“Many times I’ve been tempted. One time in Birmingham train station I actually bought a burger and raised it to my salivating mouth, but never took a bite.

“Only once, while staying in a corporate hotel for work, did I succumb to a frantic bout of pleasure with a full breakfast buffet. I had fourteen sausages. Afterwards I lay on my bed for two and a half hours, sweaty but elated.”

Hobbs admitted that, despite living to an impressive age, he still thinks about meat with a sense of regret: “I am old now, and frankly it is shit. But it’s too late to eat a steak because I have no teeth.

“If I could I would appear to my younger self as an apparition and say ‘eat burgers, and meat pies too’. But in a deep ghost-y voice so that it sounded convincing.”

Without bacon, what meaning is there to life?

...Don't answer that question. The point is, meat is the shit and vegetarians are missing out on it.

What a drama queen. It's just food. Next you're going to regret having never done crack or something.

Fourteen sausages though...

Honestly though, after having gone vegetarian for 3 days straight recently, "tasty food" is a drug. Your body craves it, but if you detox yourself, your body won't even look for it...

I think the proper medium is... be vegetarian, avoid processed foods, and once a week, treat yourself to a meat/junk food dinner like pizza or steak or something like that.

Or just... you know... cook things properly, don't eat fast food, eat too much of a single type of food group, exercise to some extent.

You can eat meat every day along with all the other important food groups and as long as you're preparing things as they should be the vegetarian next to you isn't going to be any better off.

I get what you're saying though.

Well no, eating meat, whether cooked, raw, or overcooked has been linked to causing cancer and other diseases. So yes vegetarians who get their protein are better off than people who eat meat.
