^ that's what I am. A Pescatarian. I have resorted to eating fish for protein.

I am a vegetarian, have been for about 5 years. I was vegan for about a year, but my mom and I made a deal - if I went back to being vegetarian, she'd go vegetarian. Pretty good deal if you ask me!

^ I respect that, but that's just not the way I choose to live ;)

Eating animals does not appeal to me whatsoever.

Everyone thinks I'm a PETA head because of my views...however, I think PETA are over the top and, in general, a bit mad.

I'm a vegetarian 95% of the time. I occasionally have to have chicken parmigiana, but thats it. I hate the thought of eating animals and as a child beef and pork never tasted good to me.

Sorry, I guess this is an old thread but anywho, do you guys have any good vegatarian websites? I was a veg for a year a few years ago but my mom made me stop. The only meat/fish that's really appealing is chicken, I can live without everything else. I'm not against eating meat, I just don't like it personally and it upsetts me, I am a MAJOR animal fannatic. Also, what about vitamin shots/blood test and stuff like that-do you have to get those? 'Cause I seriously go into hysteria any time I see a needle, I am not exagerating.
thanks,
tcg

I'm a vegetarian as well! I am a lacto-ovo vegetarian, which means I do eat eggs and dairy. Looks like there was a little confusion, Pescatarian (sp?) as someone said before would be a vegetarian who eats fish. Vegans are those who eat none of these things.

I've been vegetarian since I was 4 and really haven't ever had a health issue because of it. The only concern for me has been low B12. I have to take a vitamin for that, and anybody else who is vegetarian should have their levels checked. B12 stays in your system for years but if you eat NO meat and haven't for a long time, you should be tested. Low B12 can cause memory issues and permanent neurological damage. I eat different nuts, chick peas, beans, and things like that for protein, it's pretty easy to research where protein can come from.

triplecrown: If youre going to do it long term with NO meat AT ALL, I would advise (after a while....can wait a few years) to get the B12 tested, which is a blood test. Other than that, I'd think you'd be okay. I've never had any abnormalities other than that in my blood work and I'm going on 17 years vegetarian now. I'm very healthy, ran college cross country for two years....at least 7 miles a day....no problem. It's not as scary/dangerous as some people think!! Just make sure you take a daily multivitamin to be safe and look into getting other forms of protein in your meals. =) good luck!

A horse is the projection of peoples' views about themselves--strong, powerful, beautiful--and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existance.
