I have trouble with any meat that's RAW. Once it's cooked, it goes from disgusting to delicious in my mind, but until that point I want nothing to do with it (this is especially true for chicken). This is the main reason why, if I'm at a restaurant or someone's house I don't mind eating meat, but you'll rarely catch me cooking it for myself.

I eat meat replacements so in that sense I don't have an aversion to things that are a similar texture to meat. I'm mostly repulsed by the smell of meat cooking, it used to make me feel sick but I'm a little more tolerant of it now. It only became a problem after I became vegan, I guess I got sensitive to it since I was rarely around it.

Yes, in a way. I don't have an aversion to the taste of meat (and I miss bacon!) but I've become more and more turned off by eating animals who have been slaughtered.

I was a vegetarian about 20 years ago (for 5 years) for ethical reasons, and that grew into health reasons. I started traveling a lot and found it hard to find vegetarian meals in restaurants back then, and so back to it. Right now, I don't want to eat meat (I think I've convinced myself that I am a vegetarian, rather than that I'm giving up something). I hope it lasts!

p.s. I don't think I could give up cheese

I was four years old when I went vegetarian! I asked my aunt where all her cows went (she raised them) and she pointed at the dinner table. Nope. No meat since! I haven't had meat in so long that I don't remember what it tastes like. I have absolutely no desire for it at all. I don't even like those vegetarian "faux meats" that are sold to look/taste like meat (in that case, it's a texture thing). Just the smell of bacon cooking in the morning (and I have to smell that four days a week at the hospital I work at) makes me feel a little ill.

I recently decided to go vegan for ethical reasons.

I would say I have an aversion to bad health and meat is a contributing factor if eaten in too great a quantity.I grew up on a dairy farm. Our cows had names and were treated humanely. They were turned out to pasture and were grass fed in the summer- It wasn't a factory farm. Our chickens were free range. Yes I grew up thinking that animal protein and lots of it was needed to be healthy. We have all been misled by the food industry! The farms aren't the same today as the family farm was years ago.We don't know what the beef cattle are really being fed in those feed lots and chickens and turkeys raised in crowded conditions on factory farms breaks my heart. Why have I evolved from eating meats and vegetables to eating very little animal protein?-Part of me feels a strong connection with animals and feel animals have souls. I think of their pain and suffering and fear as they are led to slaughter. This didn't stop me from eating meat completely until I recently considered the health implications as part of the equation.. I had been searching for answers regarding my own health issues for years. My rashes which started with a prescribed medication never went away until I started cutting out processed baked goods. From then on I realized the power of food to either heal or make one sick. I am a senior citizen which makes my immune system more vulnerable.Then I discovered the lectures of Dr Joel Fuhrman "Eat TO Live"/ "End Of Dieting". They struck a chord with me.After reading Dr. Fuhrman's books and looking further into the Campbell's research (Forks Before Knives) I decided it was time to step up and do what is right for my body.The country is in a health crisis. I don't want to be part of the problem. I want to be part of the solution. Cancer is something that runs on my father's side of the family, and heart disease on my mother's side and the sad truth is the right diet would have prevented their disease and provided a healthier longer life. I owe it to my grand child to set a good example, to be healthy, and I owe it most of all to myself.

I saw a movie or 6 on how they mistreat animals. Will never be a part of that industry. It is a legal form of murder and torture. As a person who loves all animals I can't eat meat or even eggs.

Since I was a child, the idea of eating a dead carcass has been extremely unappetizing!! That's why I went vegan. Eating dead animals is gross to me. I genuinely don't understand how it's so normal to others.

Once I learned about all the animal suffering of factory farming, I was very happy that I hadn't contributed to it and had no temptation to.

For years, I kind of just admitted to myself that I was a hypocrite- though I obviously had strong feelings about meat, I would still eat it if I didn't have to think about it- things that didn't LOOK like what they came from.[...]
Goodness, this paragraph really resonates with me. My most beloved meal as a child was minced meat sauce but, as soon as I saw a vein in a chicken that I was eating, I turned pescetarian. A couple of weeks later, I started eating meat again when a classmate offered me a neatly stuffed sausage. Another favorite of mine used to be salmon, but seeing the scales and bones always bothered me.

I believe that a big reason for our carnivorous culture's continued existence is our ability to disassociate and/or compartmentalize the consequences of our actions. The predicaments of pigs don't even begin to enter our minds when we're gorging ourselves on their meat. Most of us don't associate bacon with knives and gas chambers; we associate it with "good mornings" and hearty breakfasts.

Since going vegan, I've made an active attempt to condition myself into associating the sight and smell of animal products with the reality described above. I have successfully managed to turn my moral upset into a more visceral repulsion. This makes it easy for me to keep my actions aligned with my moral philosophy. I'm still going strong after more than six years of avoiding animal-products.
