    I was over my friend Chelseas house last night and my other friend Alisha was there too. They found out I was a vegetarian and Alisha goes "But if you don't eat meat you'll shrivel up and die!!" and "How can you not eat meat it tastes soooooooo yummy!" I wanted to slap her! Lol

    And tonite at the dinner table my family (all omnis :mad: ) were like "ooh I like the juicy chicken.... oh I like the dry kind... I like it wen you have charcole on it!" my family loves animals and I was like HELLO THERE FRIGGIN ANIMALS TOO!! ...wow

    Been there.When i go to see my mom she will tell me somthing like your family says but will keep repeating that what ever she cooked has no meat.Then when she serves it she will add well there is just alittle pork just to make it tast good.Never fails with her.I know better know and when i see her we eat out more so i know what i eat.she grew up on a farm like me.hard to try and talk to people like that.I have herd all the things about why i should eat meat from it helps other farmers to if we did not we would all die if we just lived of vegies.Well i am still here after many years of be a vegetarian.

    people that think you can't live without meat are ignorant (inthe way that they don't know what they are talking about)

    did you know that if everyone became vegatarians the whole world could eat. it's all because of how much grain one cow eats compared to how many people one cow can feed.

    I never thought about that before, that's a good point.

    And strange how so many people say you'll shrivel up and die a vegitarian, because the reason I'm trying to become one is for health reasons. You can get the same nutrients you need in meat in other products without all the cholestoral.

    hahah, thats kind of funny.

    like my friend ariel (ive posted this already), one time she said

    "if youre a vegetarian you'll die. because if you dont eat meat you'll become too healthy, then when you're too healthy you'll get too skinny and die." or something like that.

    hahah, its like what she was saying did not make sense at all :p

    but anyway, just to prove her wrong, i've gained weight since i became a vegetarian. i gained like what.. lets see... 5 pounds, although i ended up losing most of that too. but im still heavier than i was when i ate meat. could be good, could be bad.

    :p

    Word of caution though.....

    If you've been a heavy meat-eater your whole life, and suddenly you try to stop eating meat cold turkey...your body will naturally start to cleanse itself, and you will have intense cleansing reactions sometimes.

    Drink plenty of water, and eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.

    And she's still your friend?

    Sheesh you are far more tolerant person than me. I'm a pacifist as a rule but make [slight] exceptions for people like that.

    There is plenty of food in the world to feed everyone.

    I know i read somewhere that the US produces enough food to feed the whole world alone.

    I dont get that whole fish and bird vegitarian thing, not eating beef is better than eating beef, but it doent make you any form of vegitarian, just a non beef eater.

    i have lots of friends who told me, you will become skinny and sickly without meat, but ive gained lots of muscle and lost a lot of fat since i went veg. Before i never had that crease down the middle of my stomach before. and that kind of thing.

    LOL the original post reminded me of an episode of 'Coupling' (British sitcom in the style of 'Friends')

    I am a vege but even I had to laugh at that episode. I would try to describe the scene to you all but I would only just kill it, so best not [​IMG] lets just say it revolved around a dinner table, and included a leg of lamb, one of the more manipulative yet funny characters of the show and her former psychiatrist.
