We're all going to die. Some people will meet their end sooner rather than later but that's the end goal for us all. Doing all these things to lengthen our existence are pointless, quite frankly.

If the years we spend on this Earth were not good, then it's all for naught. Enjoy yourselves to the maximum so that you don't have any regrets later.

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.


Yeah yeah, the whole "can cause this or that" argument. Save it. Genetics play just as much of a role into a life as much as "eating right" does. Seen plenty of vegetarians that die from a heart attack or get a disease anyways. Likewise I've seen those who eat like most people and are perfectly fine as well.

At the end of the day, being a vegetarian isn't going to ensure them anything. The most you can do with the argument is you "may or may not" be healthier/feel better. That's about it.

For me personally though, I wouldn't want to extend my life to the point I'm a living vegetable. I'm not going to knock any persons choices in life though.


Well what you say is true... but I sorta am iffy about the genetics reasoning. I mean, that's like saying, some smokers get cancer, some don't, it's genetics, so we should all smoke anyway.

But I mean, studies show that vegetarians live less than 10 years longer than people who eat meat. So it's not that significant a difference. I'm still too young to say for sure, but idk, I'd rather eat meat than live 6 years longer ^_^


and then bam the vegans slap you with that old well what about the animal? it has feelings too...... they can be happy and live free as well ( where a bear or a wolf might get to it and rip it to shreds)
well some of us pray and thank that poor fucking soul that let us live without starving....
I do agree with the whole industrial scale of things being fucked up and organic meat tastes 10 times better then the processed shit you buy in the supermarket.
vegans have one thing right, the processed shit is horrible for you, naturally fed and organic meat isn't so bad for you... and it tastes better.

If I had the money I would buy only Kosher meat. The Jews are very dedicated to making sure animals do not suffer and don't know they are going to die. So they can live happily then one day become meat without knowing or feeling it.

I typically eat chicken/turkey/fish and rarely eat beef. It just tastes better for some reason. Deer is also amazing if you can get your hands on some.


nah I don't think i've had deer but i'm sure moose and caribou is equally as good.

You've had moose? How was it compared to beef?

But most benefits of being a vegetarian would be feeling lighter/more energi and less mess inside the system (one of the reasons of feeling lighter).

atleast from what I know the eating part isn't that bad, but when you cook it its worse (breathing in just like smoke into the lungs) so allways try to have it under the fan!
Also get the protiens from where? (plus different things like fat, and many various things like Omega 3 from fish etc)

Eating meat is not bad if eating healthy... so you don't cluster with fat inside your veins like potato chips is horrible for that or anything trans fat, fried stuff.

More pyramides so fun

yea but it's no fun if you can't mash the juicy piece of meat between your teeth. the mastication of it is so delicious, so juicy, and it just melts in your mouth as you masticate the extremely delicious perfection while you salvate gobs of saliva to help the mastication go smoothly.


Masticate all you want just don't forget to swallow your cud.

oh my god it is delicious, moose burgers are the best thing i've ever eaten right next to organic steak ( naturally raised beef) with anything it all depends on how you make it buts its hard to fuck up.

People talk about meat causing cancer and I don't understand there aversion. All foods that have been modified chemically can cause cancer.
Eating a cow on steroids or pig on antibiotics is no different than eating gmo corn that has been dowsed in fertilizer, or eating a papaya smothered in insecticide.
I think what are body wants is fruit. Vegetables and Meat are a supplements until fruits are available again.. large brains need sugar. and by gollie do we got large brains.

What proof is there that it was the lack of meat in his diet?

Umm no, the earth didn't have high sugary fruits back when we were evolving into the modern form of human. That was a result of selective breeding fruits to produce higher yield and higher sugar content. Most species of fruits were small berry like fruits or were heavly seeded. If anything cooked tubers and glycogen from eating raw animals livers and muscle meat also fish tend to store mroe glycogen in the winter so there is where the majority of our sugar came from. Fat is the driving force of evolution, to a great extent DHA. Considering that fat is the most caloric dense macronutrient that helps form our nervous system and regulate hormones.Wonder what sets us apart from our primate relatives is that we get fats exogenously from animals whilst they make it endogenously in there guts through fermentation which takes a considerable amount of time spent eating huge amounts of plant matter.

Also from a nutritional stand point fruits are kinda shit I would say there more of a luxury that occurs seasonally.
