    Perhaps.

    Former strict lacto-ovo vegetarian from age 12. I had the crisis of conscience thing where I felt terrible about eating animals. If meat even touched my food I wouldn't eat it.

    Now a bona fide meat-eater. I never felt quite right on a vegetarian diet. I was always hungry and felt a little fuzzy mentally. I feel sharp as a tack by comparison now. And much more assertive than I used to be. (Could be an odd coincidence.)

    I always loved fine dining but I absolutely relish it now. It's like the world of food has opened right up! I am fussy about the meat I eat. I hate fast food, I can eat the occasional burger but anything more frequent makes me feel sick and gross. People just look and smell so much better to me if they eat less processed/high fat/high sugar food.

    (Haha, I can be a real pain in the ass about it! If I am ever in a position of relevant authority I would ban soda and run all the fast food joints out of town. )

    Pescetarian, Raw foodist

    I don't understand not eating a certain food group based on moral imperative. I also wonder how/where long term vegans get b12.

    B12 comes in a supplement, or in food items fortified with it like soy milk, some cereals, margarine and nutritional yeast - which is a staple in the vegan cupboard.

    I have no moral imperative - it's just a personal choice/preference.

    My understanding is that the body is unable to absorb b12 in fortified forms, or even from certain plants like spirulina. Dairy makes sense. I made a mistake. I meant for that question to be asked of vegans.

    I am vegan, and I understood that's what you meant. To my knowledge of the past and most current studies, B12 can and is absorbed in fortified form.

    Spirulina, barley grass and food items which contain it naturally are rendered ineffective due to the presence of analogues.

    Could you link me to studies on b12 fortified foods? I'd appreciate it.

    HELLZ NO!!!!!!!

    However, for health reasons, I limit my intake of red meat to once per week at the very most, and I stay away from most meat other than turkey and chicken.

    But take away meat, and I'm a very grumpy girl. :steam:

    By health reasons, I am referring to animal fat and cholesterol as well as weight control.
