    Everything in moderation.....Yes...People eat too much meat.....BUT.....Normal people need a quick supply of protein that comes in meat.

    Close. Humans are fundamentally omnivores. We can thrive on massively diverse kinds of diets, from vegan to meat-only, to everything in between. There are some specifics of nutrients we need, but these are available from massively diverse sources.

    however riding the bike more often helps way more than fargin around with diet fads. Well, unless the individual is obese then a restricted calorie diet is in order - meat, vegan or other. And of course individual conditions (like myself I can no longer enjoy big leafy green salads, as it would interfere with my Warfarin medication)

    My brothers vegan, and others I know.
    What gets me is they discuss all these foods that 'taste like meat'. I don't get it, they are vegan, isn't eating something that tastes like meat illegal? If your vegan, eat the dam vegetables and forget about 'tastes like meat' road.

    Its almost a contradiction -- go into the vegetarian/organic section of the super market and there's all these fake meat products. And most of them have some much salt in them and are so processed that you'd probably be better off having a piece of mean instead.

    And it's expensive. Burger king announced its going to sell a meatless Whopper by the end of the year nation wide. If its $8, who is going to buy it?

    The vegans have the deliciousness of carbohydrates on their side. I imagine it would really suck to be on some kind of paleo diet while vegan. Is clamboring for meat-like processed items their main solution, I dunno? I do like a good vegan salad covered in chick peas, nuts and fruit - but also cheese and bacon to make it great

    But damn for me baked potatoes and corn on the cob goes down real nice. Just have to be a biking fiend to keep burning it off so it doesn't turn to systemic inflammation and heart disease. This is what the cult of Durianrider advocates - but again it only works if you ride like 100km a day like he does, and the diet probably doesn't help much compared to the actual riding.

    I'm a lifetime non meat-eater--occasional fish and eggs I'm down with.

    I have not tried the 'Beyond Meat' burger, but did try the 'Impossible Burger'. Now I have no standards of comparison having never eaten a "real" burger, but I was pretty meh on the whole thing.

    I've never understood the 'meat substitute' thing, except my mom would make a point to buy Loma Linda fake wieners for me to take to elementary school for Sports Day, so I could eat hot dogs more or less like the other kids. Because they were a treat, I then had cravings for them, but have rarely bought them. When we were first married I tried a couple (Yve's) since my wife will eat meat, and I thought it might be fun to have the same fake meat for dinner--but it never really caught on.

    Instead we eat a pretty moderate mostly vegetarian diet, with some cheese, milk & eggs (never really got on the vegan thing, though I have for brief periods) and fish/shellfish as an occasional treat. Seems to work fine for us.us_tofu_dog_12-oz.png

    I can't really recall when or why I stopped eating meat. I'm not a vegetarian, I'll eat meat I take while hunting, but I don't hunt that much lately. But, I can't recall the last time I craved me. I'm completely okay without it. And at this point, I'm also well aware, and alarmed by what industrial meat production does to the planet. AND the animals.

    We also have two dogs who go bonkers if you cook meat, so that also isn't worth dealing with.

    Give me a some greens, some sort of beans, some eggs, some whole milk, some chocolate, some cauliflower, some broccoli, some kale, some fruit, some yogurt, some pretzels, and I'm all set. I eat pretty much anything and I've worked professionally as a cook, but day in and day out, I'm pretty happy with basic fruits, vegetables, a couple eggs a day, and some fruit each day.

    Gave up fast food YEARS ago when I was traveling and was in the middle of nowhere and yet, there was still a KFC on the corner. I gave it up not out of food/environmental concerns, but because I didn't want to see the world look the same no matter where you went. I cook most of my own meals. I find going out to eat a waste of time, I can't sit still very long.
    Go to Bonchon for the better K(orean)FC and bulgogi tacos.

    Technically I suppose that is true--but the long-accepted division of food stuffs is "fish, meat and poultry" --and I only eat the fish.

    Give a man a fish, and he eats for a day,

    Teach a man to fish and he'll discover all the burger and chicken joints on the way home.

    Fish is good. I've always known fish as part of white meat category.

    "In nutritional studies however, white meat includes poultry and fish, but excludes all mammal flesh, which is considered red meat."

    I try to eat stuff low on the food chain, not crazy about eating accumulated toxins!
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    I'd be down with 'Beyond Meat' patties if they were cheaper than ground beef patties. But it seems to cost multiple times as much, so the scotch in me says stick with the real thing.

    other issue is: I can't stand large size burgers, like they serve at EVERY fast casual burger place these days. It's too much food imho. All the beyond meat burgers I have seen have been of this huge size. nope

    Yeah, nothing brings out the flavor of a vegan diet like being supplemented by meat.
