I'm a vegetarian. I'm 6'1 200lbs. Mostly muscle. I haven't checked my BF in a while so don't know what it is. Humans are intended to be vegetarians by nature. It's the most healthy diet. I have had more energy and motivation ever since I started being a vegetarian.

I refuse to fight the forces of nature like that and i want to be as healthy as possible and in the most efficient, productive & easy way which i as a human/omnivore am designed for, so no... i am not a vegetarian...

It is nearly impossible to get adequate amounts of vitamin D from your diet. Sunlight exposure is the only reliable way to generate vitamin D in your own body

my brother is but he still eats fish, crabs and shrimp once or twice a week. he see it as he won't eat anything he couldn't kill himself. he would feel terrible if he killed a mammal but would kill a fish. i **** with him about it all the time. but i myself don't eat meat every day. everyone says we're designed to eat meat and that may be true but we weren't meant to eat it at every meal. humans are hunters and gathers hence some days they couldn't get a kill so they gathered fruits and vegetables to fill their stomachs.

never eaten meat in my life. Parents were vegetarians before I was born. Very thankful I was raised as I was. Never had an issue with nutrition. Never had any problems competing athletically. I'll avoid being preachy here, I'll simply say that the meat industry is going to destroy our planet long before any other industry does and even if I had not been brought up the way I was, I'd become a vegetarian simply to avoid supporting such a destructive force.

we're not designed to eat meat. We're designed to supplement our diets with meat, as is any omnivore. My wife used to have a heavy meat diet, but since we've been together has changed quite a bit, but she will never give up her fish. She loves seafood.

Then he can't be a vegetarian. Can't believe some people out there actually believe that they're still vegetarian if they eat fish.

While I respect your view, that seems so naive. It's wrong to kill animals so you can? How do wild animals get food?

My Ex GF took me to a meat slaughter place 2 years ago and the stuff I saw there really changed my views on everything. Just the look on all the animals eyes before they got killed just got me, it felt like someone was about to kill my dog. These animals want to live just like the rest of us. I used to be a crazy meat eater throughout college, but I stopped completely. And now, 2 years later, I felt like that was the best decision I ever made. I feel more energetic, healthier, I have good stamina etc. And through that time I have done a lot of research into it and found out how humans aren't intended to have a meat diet due to our teeth structure and digestive system. I'm not saying people that eat meat are wrong, everyone has the right to do anything they want.
