    Yeeeaaa....

    Then Saruman sent the orcs,
    Vader destroyed a medical frigate,
    The borgs attacked ,
    Lord zed sent the putty patrol
    And lots of other works of fiction.

    Ok. Ummmm. You didn't like my opening towards my point about grilling and baking, I suppose. Fair enough. I was attempting to relay via humor that I believe we should be able to grill and/or bake various meats until tender and edible. I do not eat living things except for sushi, if you consider that "alive." I call that the kind of sushi that was recently alive. Not the live sushi. Saw a guy die from eating a live octopus one time on television. Grilling or baking that octopus would have kept him alive - SO I am in a round about way promoting life saving food preparation techniques in an entertaining fashion.

    Notwithstanding anything contained to the contrary herein and without limiting the generality of the forgoing, you need to mention something having to do with the thread if you are going to participate. Not just attack my post. It hurts man. Bad. Real bad. LOL ;)

    I just cringe at people using the bible as a basis for making a point on behavior. Especially one as not religiously related as diet.
    I'm a firmly secular man.

    Most of them try to follow vegan diet to stay fit and healthy.

    I tried the vegan thing and actually stuck to it for a full two years dropped a ton of weight, got pretty lean and energy levels were incredible but two years was enough of an experience for me.

    I have a lot of friends who are vegan and dont mind it. My experience is that the carnivores are often the more ignorant acting religious about their food, rather than the vegans.

    I've considered this, I know I can get the proper protein through other methods but I just like meat too damn much.

    I have tried it and you do feel better but it's 3x more work on nutrition and quiet expensive to try and keep up the protein needs.. Plus I got tired of lentils..

    I'm currently on lacto-ovo vegetarian diet and have not felt better. I like to change up my diet from time to time just to try something new. I am leaner and actually coming in stronger than before. This is pretty easy to do, I can have eggs (eat tons of them) milk, cheese etc.. just no flesh. I am eating much more veggi's which is what I am always missing out of my diet so it's a win for me.


    Now pure vegan there is no way.

    Oh and I do not eat soy at all. IMO soy is horrible for your diet or at least for me. I have done this before and last time I had soy in my diet and my estro levels were through the roof.

    I wonder if it was the same one I was watching and ended up shutting it off because I still want to enjoy eating those things. It was saying how there was like puss in cheese and just some really terrible things that would definitely make you think twice about eating any of it. It’s pretty hard to get a better quality of protein than from animal protein though. Sometimes ignorance is bliss.
