I became instant semi-vegetarian after watching an autopsy//

i don't know if you'll agree with me guys... after watching an autopsy, i despised meat altogether. I can only take in fish and veggies... i didn't know that watching an autopsy would have this kind of effect on me. I just hope it will be advantageous on my plan to lose pounds. But the question is- would it last as long as my memory of the autopsy lasts?

for me is was hearing about the beef recall on NPR - including sound bites of the cows being tortured.
I know that human beings are supposed to eat meat as a species- but I can not bring myself to do it given modern mean "farming" and "processing" - aside from a little sea food here and there. It took me a while to figure out how to get protein into my diet and for a while I was fatigued all the time (I am very active).
What I do now is try to have at least two of these a day:
egg whites (I buy the carton kind)
myoplex light (drink)
luna bar
salmon/tuna in water
protein boost in smoothies
cottage cheese

In college when I first watched "faces of death" and the slaughter house scene, I vowed that I would never eat meat again... that lasted until that night when we all ordered chinese!

After watching 'Meet Your Meat', I became veg. You can google it. Keep the memory! The animals and your body will thank you! ;)

Same here! After seeing the beef recall, I can only eat shellfish/fish and veggies- tried to eat meat again and was naseated!

I was feeling really fatigued so I added shellfish/fish to my diet and dont get "meat" cravings anymore.
