I´ve always eaten meat, I like many rustical meat-meals (they´re a large part of our local culture and cuisine) and I find them delicious, so I don´t want to be influenced by anyone in my eating habits. Vegetarians/Vegans demand respect for their habit from others, so they should show the same respect to others, too. No one is superior or inferior only because he/she eats meat or not.
    Well, we have all seen how beautiful you look, so you look very well on your meat eating diet.

    In fact, I am astounded at how well people who do eat meat are, because to me (and perhaps more significantly, for me) it is a dirty habit, as meat is imbued with the qualities of tamas.

    Culture is a weapon, and nevermore so than food culture.

    If I were to say to you, 'meat is unhealthy', what I would be doing is saying 'my culture is better than yours, my culture predominates here, and you need to adapt or move away'.

    I hope that I do not do this, but there is an element of snobbery and also reverse snobbery in the way people talk about food:

    See Patrioten's post where he revels in his appreciation for peasant food, including potato which is not even native to Europe. What could this be other than his 'cocking a snook' at the 'foodie' food snobs?

    Food is one of our most emotive issues.

    The food she eats is a very big concern for me in choosing a partner. If she does not already eat saatvic food or want to switch to saatvic food and join me in that, then she is not one of mine, and I am wasting my time. That is not, however, the full picture.

    Despite educating her in culinary matters and her developing 'the higher taste' for saatvic food, the fundamental problem with the last one was her refusal to acknowledge the spiritual importance of eating saatvic food, and she certainly paid for it, I am not too ashamed to say.

    I consider myself a selective vegetarian. Common meats in America are extremely processed and the animals are raised horribly, in the worst conditions (unless they are "free-range", but even those restrictions are sometimes bypassed or even ignored). So, if I eat meat, at the least it must have organic or free-range labels. I support animal rights to a degree but also believe that meat-eating is totally natural and normal. I usually eat meat on holidays like Jól and Midsummer, but rarely during the rest of the year.

    Hi, I am strictly a carnivore

    I mainly eat a diet consisting primarily of meat and have noticed that I am much leaner that way. I no longer eat carbs ie: bread, potatoes, rice, pasta, sugar, or junk foods etc...

    Meat is an essential part of my diet. I usually prefer to have meat, starch, and a fruit or vegetable on my plate at every meal. For example, at breakfast I will have eggs, ham, toast, and fruit; for supper, I will have pork, mashed potatoes, and green beans. This is almost always the structure of any meal I cook for more than just myself, as I feel it is what's healthy.

    There are few things I love more than steak and hamburgers, but I try to eat a balanced diet for health reasons.

    I would call myself semi-vegetarian. I don't eat beef, pork, or chicken, but I do eat some fish, eggs, and a little dairy. Vegetarianism is very likely the healthiest and most natural diet for members of our species. Other primates are, for the most part, vegetarian. Another thing, we can get all of the nutrients we need from plants, so there's no need to slaughter other animals for food.
    There are nutritionists who believe too much animal protein in your diet can lead to arthritis, and osteoporosis. Animals bred for food are also treated with hormones which end up in your system once you consume them. This can lead to female cancers, and deformities in male infants; as well as sterility. Meat is bad for you.
    Most people don't know that we share a great number of genes with the animals we keep as livestock. I could be mistaken, but I've heard that pigs are the closest relatives of primates(our family). That makes meat/pork consumption just plain gross.
    The pathogens which people contract, and get sick and die from very often come from animals kept for food. Our genetic similarity to these other species makes it much easier for their viruses to infect us. We could very easily stop many of the world's problems, like starvation, and disease, by going vegetarian. The food and water given to livestock could go to people instead, if people didn't eat meat. In fact, as far as I'm concerned, if you are someone who does eat meat, and you end up dangerously obese, or with other health problems due to your diet, you have nothing to complain about.

    Over time, I developed a lectin-allergy, so I'm allergic to wheat, rye, oats, barley (bye-bye beer ), peas, beans, cashews and peanuts. That pretty much cuts out most of the vegetarian options, except nuts and milk (thank the gods I'm not lactose-intolerant).

    I basically follow the Paleolithic Diet, which consists of meats, shellfish, and eggs as the primary source of food. Fruits and vegetables are the secondary source of food, with nuts, seeds, berries, and honey for snacks and sweets. I also add milk products. The diet experts are divided on whether it was part of the evolution diet, and I don't want osteoporosis

    It's the diet that humans evolved on. The main food groups we eat today were only incorporated into our diet for the last 10,000-15,000 years. I have to eat this way, but it is a very healthy diet for anyone, go get out there and start hunting and gathering.

    This is the Paleolithic Food "Pyramid."

    I think a good balance of vegetables and fruit, dairy, and meat lead to a healthy body. So I would say... Vegetarian/Carnivorism?

    I've been low carb for 1 year and 5 months now and I am 30 lbs lighter and healthier because of it.

    Definitely a carnivore here. Sometimes, I feel a little guilty about eating the poor animals, as I am a big sappy animal lover, but I can't seem to give it up.

    It seems to me that the meat eaters actually look healthier than most vegetarians. Meat eaters have color in their cheeks, whereas most vegetarians often look pale. I always fed my children a meat, a starch, and a vegetable several nights a week and they are all very healthy adults.

    Most of the time, if I crave a certain food, it is meat. Some doctors say that the body quite often craves what it needs, so maybe we are truly supposed to be meat eaters. Seems natural to me.

    Even if I am rationalizing here, I'm gonna keep doing it. Just don't ask me to meet the cow...
