I try to be as vegetarian as possible not because i think its more healthy, or because i don't like meat. I do like it very much. I don't think its is necessarily more healthy.

I quit eating meat most of the time because i don't like the way animals are treated on most farms. If I was going to choose to eat meat for moral reasons, i would eat beef and lamb here but not pork or chicken unless it raised on a free range farm. Meanwhile here in Australia most sheep and cattle are raised out in the fields. However there's still plenty of cruelty in their lives. Such being shipped in awful conditions to foreign countries where they can be subjected to the most obscene cruelty if they survive the trip. Of course there is cruelty here in our own abattoirs and on farms but not everywhere. But basic cruelty is part of an farm animals life. Branding, docking of tales, shearing, mulesing, and so on. Its a hard life being a farm animal. Fish live most of their lives in freedom, so long as its not farmed. I think the salmon i eat is farmed in the sea. That's probably not as bad as being farmed in a tank. I avoid seafood from asian countries though i am not sure their conditions are worse than ours. Here i try to avoid fish farmed fish as much as possible. I got my own chickens and ducks for my own eggs but my chickens ended up being eaten by snakes. I haven't got anymore. The ducks can fight off the snakes and they have done well but i don't really like their eggs so much. I only eat chicken about once a year and then i buy a free range chicken. I try to buy free range eggs.

I am not happy about the way dairy cows are treated but i can't go without milk. I wanted my own goat but was voted down by others who live here. The neighbour currently has a goat and kid. They are so sweet but they live all day in a smallish pen. When i have animals, i try to let them free range as much as possible. I'd put my goat on a peg and move it around the property if i had one. My ducks go where they like. I still feel bad about stealing their eggs but if i let them hatch, i would have to kill them. Mostly they are males. Its not possible to find homes for them all.

Its a shame that people don't know or care more about the cruelty animals are subjected to on a daily basis throughout their lives. But that's human nature to turn a blind to what conflicts with our own interests and desires.

Probably not an aversion, just that every muscle and joint in my body gets inflamed. It takes 3 or 4 days to settle back down. It's crazy!!! nobody believes me. Can't say as I blame them it doesn't sound reasonable.

I can sympathize with you. I didn't feel enflamed, but even as a child, meat caused me severe stomach upsets. Coming from a meat and potatoes family preference, it was seemingly a steady stream of being sick. I finally figured it out about 20 years ago when I gave up pork and beef. I continued with chicken until about 7 years ago when I stopped eating that as we'll. It took awhile, but the no-meat regimen resulted in my blood pressure and cholesterol dipping to normal levels - nice perk! The idea of the in humane treatment of animals also played a major role.

I really struggle with this. I feel physically better if I eat animal protein and I seem to lose weight faster when I eat it, but I don't crave it at all. I eat as little as possible.

On the other hand, lately the thought of eating meat makes me feel queasy. I also hate the way animals are treated. When I have been vegetarian, I eat too many carbs and gain weight.

I am going to try to eat vegetarian but incorporate more protein, such as soy.
