I decided to do something that I have been flirting with for a few years now and that is give up all meat and fish. I DO enjoy eating animal flesh, especially the seafood variety, but for ethical and health reasons I have decide to go vegetarian and perhaps I will eventually lean more towards vegan. Right now I am still allowed eggs and dairy so finding things to eat is not that tricky. It is my understanding that fish and the meat of animals are full of hormones/chemicals and seafood is full of mercury and pcb's. I also know for a fact that animals are abused. They are just not treated right. It's morally corrupt. My other thought is that my Anatomy teacher told the class that humans were not meant to eat the flesh of large animals and that we were meant to be more omnivorous. Meat is extremely hard to digest. So here I am three days in to a somewhat low calorie vegetarian diet and I feel good. I had to poop a lot the second day in but today was not like that. I am going to a restaurant in town tomorrow that has a full vegetarian/vegan menu and I'm really excited! So far i've enjoyed all the different flavors in my diet and i can't wait to explore even more. Lately eating meat had become a chore. I am glad I don't have to eat it now. Even looking at food porn on Facebook that involves animal meat doesn't make me hungry or even enticed. I'd like to know if any of you CB'ers are vegan or vegetarian and what helped you decide to be that way? Do you think it helps your brain?
