Okay, so... my New Year's resolution has been to stop eating all meat other than fish, and so far I've done great. This is a thread for all of those people who choose not to eat meat. Tell us when you made the choice to stop eating meat and why. Simple. :thumb: I stopped eating meat because it was a healthy choice for me. I used to love eating meat and I would often make bad choices when it came to food because of it ("Veggie combo? No way, give me the meat-lovers one!"). After I noticed that a high intake of meat combined with a low amount of physical activity was a bad idea, I decided that this year would be a great chance to get back into shape. Since then I've lost some weight, paid more attention to my eating habits, and felt a lot better than before. I also don't agree with the way humans treat animals in regards to the food industry, so it was somewhat a spiritual decision for me as well. And finally, I like animals, so that's cool too. Note: The purpose of this thread is not to convince meat-eaters to become vegetarians or vegans. Let's not start a big argument here. People who eat meat choose to eat meat, so be respectful. I'm just looking for the proud among us who have decided to stop eating meat.
