Have at it, I'm not saying you shouldn't eat vegetables. I'm saying, eating less meat will not make you healthier. I'm certainly not saying eating MORE meat will make you healthier either. Moderation in everything.

However, cutting meat out of your diet entirely will leave you missing quite a lot of proteins, vitamins, and minerals you can't otherwise get unless you take a bunch of pills and shots for some (Vitamin B12 apparently has very little vegetable sources). I have known a few vegetarians that either acknowledge that you teeter on the edge of unhealthy because of the lack of nutrition; 1 started eating meat again, another gets a B-12 shot at a clinic once a month and has to take a lot of other vitamins.

I'm not even saying that you or anyone else shouldn't be a vegetarian/vegan or that they can't be healthy. I'm all for it. It's your life, your body, your choice. By all means, more meat for me. I'm just against the distortion that less meat is healthier or that vegetarianism/veganism is healthiest diet.

American diet is garbage, but I think most dieticians would argue it has much less to do with meat vs vegetables and a whole lot more to do with sugar. If i were to cut out one thing from a diet to make myself healthier, sugar would be it.

Very well put.

Everything in moderation. I actually don't like beef much. Never have. I don't like chocolate either.
