I cut out soda for 1 year. New years resolution one year.

 

After a month it two, I didn't even want it any more.

 

After the year was up and I drank some, shit didn't even taste good.

I'm not about to tell you how to live or get into a discussion about the ins and outs of meat consumption, but listening to most vegetarians and the USDA about anything to do with your diet will only steer you in the wrong direction.

 

Whatever you do, don't replace your protein sources with soy protein or you will turn into a woman.

soda is garbage - not hard to not drink that garbage. (not playing down your success, jussayin)

 

tofu or beans could never 'replace' meat… mainly red meat.

but you could supplement your protein intake with such items - if that's a concern.

is there a benefit to the protein you get out of red meat as opposed to other meats?

Moderation and the way you cook things can help you sort a lot of things out.

I've also cut soda out of my diet, Ive snuck a Pepsi now and then, but lately its not been tasting the same as it did before.

I'd rather have milk or juice.

Or..water.

i just stay away from fast food, and stay active. my girl is a vegetarian and she can make some delicious meals without meat, which changed my mind about the whole vegetarian stigma. i still eat burgers, ribs, steak, and roast beef. just dont over eat

i eat vegetarian 75% of the time. basically, it's easier because my fiancee is.

 

this TED talk explains some good logic behind part time vegetarianism.

 

 

btw i killed a huge hella rare steak sammich for lunch.

Meat is not bad for you as long as you eat lean, dense, nutrient packed cuts and stay away from bullshit that is soaked in gravies, salted, pickled bullshit etc...

 

Modern diets are fucked because our bodies have not changed much in 40,000 years.

But the world has. Agriculture, migration, etc...

Eat at the edge of the supermarket and stay out of the aisles and you will be okay.

Just make sure you eat real food and not a bunch of powders and shitty supplements to take their place.

but, i mean, i could just replace it with like beans and tofu, right?

 

if you actually read ingredients, you will find tons of foods that have protein.

you should also replace empty carbs with complex carbs, there's protein in those too.

lot of people gain a ton of weight when they go veg b/c they start eating lots of bad carbs.

once you get used to it, it's not so difficult. good luck.

I haven't eaten meat since 1996 and it hasn't slowed me down one bit. I'm slowly cutting soy out of my diet as well.

 

But that's me, not you. Your body will tell you what it needs, pay attention to it.

 

Also, try exercise. If you're active and your diet doesn't make a huge difference in your physique, then that's the way you're meant to look. Inshallah.

my meat alternative = homemade wheat gluten

 

 

so easy to make, just using whole wheat from the "organic" whole foods store, it only costs like 5 bucks to make a week worth of steaks or w/e

 

 

also, tons of mushrooms mimic the meaty flavors of flesh, if cooked correctly, there are even mushrooms that have a sea-food taste..

 

one thing i would advise to stay away from is nightshade vegetables (tomatoes, potatoes, eggplants and peppers)

 

white and black "peppers" (corns) are alright, and sweet potatoes are not nightshades so they are fine,

it's just that nightshades have toxic alkaloids in them, they are in the same family as tobacco, in fact potatoes actually contain traces of nicotine.

 

ever heard of datura or jimson weed? yeah, those are nightshades also.
