And what exactly is wrong with having to eat more? I'm just a little confused by your POV.
O/K perhaps my down under sence of humour is not easy to understand.
If you read my post you should have noticed I said. I set my table to include the grass eaters. I do refer to my friends as grass eaters, and I can not print how they refer to me on ocassion.
However, they are long standing friends and we have many discussion on the subject and mostly end up at an impass. Not to mention the times they fall of the wagon and enjoy my leg of lamb, or beef roast, and it does happen. There are no winners and no losers. Generally we are locked with good points to both sides of the discussion.
So folks don't take offence if you don't agree that's o/k we are allowed, and are expected, to disagree. And yes I do, also, refer to my horses and sheep as grass eaters as well. I also refrain from red meat on three days of the week. Or at the worst a greatly reduced intake. But that is to reduce weight I have soup (Veg) and it works I have dropped a few pounds.
Don't stop because you are not sure how to take me, you will not insult me by strong disagreement.
