I only eat chicken and seafood. But I really want to become vegetarian and vegan eventually.

Humans are designed to be vegetarians but my Dr. says I need protein and meat is the easiest way to get it. I dont like the vegies that contain protein

I'm definitely a carnivore, and wouldn't have it any other way. I'm pretty picky about my seafood though.

Vegetarian for the most part. If someone serves me a meal I'm not going to be difficult, I'll eat meat. But if I buy food for myself it's vegetarian.

Please, all Vegetarians and Vegans...don't get angry at me or take this wrong. I understand both your moral stand and your health stand. I actually am a meat eater that, at heart, agrees with you on both those counts. I wish there were some good "artificial" meat and I hope in the future we can "clone" tissue without it being attached to an animal, and thus no one gets killed to create a steak or chicken breast. Of course, it still would not be the healthiest choice.

My point, however, is nothing to do with that.

I have known a few people. Intelligent, nice people, who became Vegetarian and their personalities changed. It is something friends/family avoid speaking about too much...for fear of making them alienated or pissed off, but facts are facts. Three different people switched to that kind of diet and in all three cases, they had major and permanent changes in their overall personalities. It is a hard thing to pin down, but I dare say they all became more "edgy". They seemed more critical and just had less humor and approachability. I found this same observation made by others who know them as well, so it is not just "my" observation.

Thus, if you take this route and become vegetarian or vegan, ask a few people you really trust and love, to monitor that for you and see if they report any behavior change in you. Perhaps it is something you can head off if you know it is happening. I wonder if it has to do with amino acid changes from not ingesting meat? Perhaps that effects the amount/types of neurotransmitters created? Vegetable proteins are not "bio identical" to animal protein and while, again, I respect your choice to not eat meat, the fact is, our bodies were created as omnivores. We have those sharp canines for a reason. Stopping ingestion of a "fuel" the body was designed to process most certainly has to have biological/physiologic al/biochemical consequences.

I consider myself a flexitarian. I don't eat a lot of meat at all. I don't eat red meat, seafood, or turkey at all. I eat chicken and pork on occasion. I seek out meat alternatives when I can. I prefer Boca burgers and the like over real meat.

I eat wild-caught fish a couple times a week, otherwise it's all vegetables. I gave up red meat 15 years ago, after seeing some undercover video from feed lots and slaughterhouses. Just wasn't something I wanted to be part of. I didn't expect it, but I started to feel better right away.

Last year, I gave up poultry (finally), again because of concerns about inhumane and environmentally-unsust ainable industry practices. Now it's just wild-caught fish and vegetables.

Am I "edgy"? Actually I have less stress, and more energy, than when I ate meat. My doctor says I'm healthier than most people half my age in terms of cholesterol and blood pressure (both of which were borderline high before I gave up red meat). I run a faster mile than when I was in college and I bench press about twice as much. Have I lost my sense of humor? Hmmm...you tell me.
