    I've done research and always come up with (for the general public) "A moderate amount of meat is better than a large amount or no meat at all."
    But were those studies taking into account meat replacement? I mean, just in terms of pure protein, you could easily get the minimum amount of protein through fake meat (seitan, soy, etc.).

    You buy, I cook. Steak.

    Yeah, they were. Protein is not all created equal. Do I really have to spam you with internet articles? I think we both have better things to do than wade through them.

    These statements are ripe with hidden asterisks and unspecified variables.

    Vegetarian diets which aren't properly balanced? Yes, there's a good chance of deficiencies... just as many meat-based diets are proving to be bad for people who don't incorporate greens into their meals... I know plenty of vegetarians (in India, Gujaratis and many South Indians are frequently vegetarians) who are in perfect health, and while they have plenty of milk, they don't touch eggs. And Jains (who follow the strictest religion-based diet ever... they don't even eat roots) are not know for their ill-health. As for the myth about proteins... vegetarians can get perfect protein coverage from non-meat sources. Maybe it's easier for a meat eater to pack in the protein in a single sitting... he/she has to cook a little less, think a little less hard about it... but the fact is, being vegetarian and having a perfectly well-balanced diet is easily obtained, and many of the problems of meat are obviated... such as more difficult digestion....

    And one more thing... people who eat meat tend to have stinkier feces than those who stick to vegetarian diets.




    Most people in GENERAL aren't pro-athletes... the number of pro athletes in the world is a fraction of a percent of the total population... factor in that vegetarians are also a minority of the world population, and the chances of popping out fully vegetarian pro-athletes is extremely slim barring all discussion of nourishment. Although some of the other posts citing people like Carl Lewis and federations of pro-athletes who are vegetarian give your statement the lie.

    I'm not a huge fan of meat, except for seafood, which I wouldn't want to give up. I tried being a vegetarian once, but it just seemed so much harder. I was constantly thinking about food, it seemed like. But I don't naturally eat a lot of red meat or chicken. And I would prefer not to have any animals killed to feed me.
