  • Yes, because its good.
  • Yes, I like it, and my partner loves it. I am happy to eat vegetarian meals, but I do enjoy eating meat.
  • Yes because it is tastier than eating "meatless" meat.
  • No. Well, I eat seafood. I took some courses in nutrition in college and came to the understanding that I could do without it and that a mostly vegetarian diet has benefits that outweigh one rich in meats. I haven't eaten meat in about 17 years and don't really miss it. There are so many wonderful dishes and whole cuisines out there in the world that are meatless and absolutely delicious.
  • I am weird. I stopped eating beef, pork and lamb about 4 years ago. I am into chicken, turkey and seafood. It's not an ethical thing, just decided I didn't want to eat "cute furry animals" any longer. My husband says "she eats ugly animals". If I see a food that I suspect has beef/pork/lamb in it, I will inquire and if it has that meat I will pass. I have this rule about fringe amounts of meat. I will eat the "mystery" meat inside of won tons. There is nothing fanatical about me but I haven't had a steak or real hamburger and don't really miss them. These soy products on the market are a nice change and they do taste so good that you almost feel you are eating the real thing. Gardenburger makes some great "fake pork" with BBQ sauce.
  • No, I am a vegetarian and don't eat any type of animal but I am not a vegan and I do eat milk and cheese. I was brought up vegetarian as a child, and I do not beleive in killing animals for my own food, although I do not condemn others for eating meat.
  • yes i eat meat just not beef, i dont know why i just stopped eating it one day a few years ago
  • Yes, because it tastes good and is an excellent source of protein.
  • Yes. First of all I like the taste of it. Secondly I have been brought up eating meat and see no reason to change. Thirdly it is a good source of protein and dietary fats.
  • No, mostly because I just don't like it that much. I sometimes eat a little seafood, and on some very rare occasions I'll reluctantly eat chicken, but beef is where I draw the line.
  • no i don't. I've been vegetarian for about 4 years now, but havn't eaten red meat for about 6. I went veggie becasue I don't agree with eating meat, when I can survive perfectly well without it. I have always said if i was stuck on a dsert island with no other possibilities, then I would definatly kill an animal, I wouldn't consider their lives more important than mine. Thats the reason I went veggie but I think the reason I stay that way is because i don't really like the taste of meat that much. (sometimes there are things I get cravings for, but would never actually eat it, because of my principles.)
  • yes. i've tried to become vegitarrian, but i can't. meat just tastes so good and i'll no what i'm missing. but i can't eat meat if it looks pretty much like it did when it died.
  • Yes, I eat all kinds of meat, because I like it. I was raised on beef, pork, and wild game, and I see no reason to change.
  • "What do you mean, you eat no meat?!....That's alright, I'll make lamb!" Haha sorry, couldn't resist the movie quote. But in response to the question, yes. I eat meat because of the nurtritional value of it, although I eat more chicken that red meat, and seafood above all of those. Generally eating red meat (if not opposed to it) 2 times a week, interspersed with poultry and fish is a good balance.
  • yes i eat meat. i just don't seem to get full without it. i eat a ton of vegetables & fruit. and not too many sweets.
  • I love to eat meat. Gotta have something to go with the veggies.
  • Yes, but I could probably do without it with no problem, I just grew up eating it.
  • No. Because: a)The idea of eating somethings dead flesh is something I've always found incredibly unappealing. b)Whilst I don't object morally to the killing and eating of animals, I do object to modern intensive farming practices. c)I would worry about the hormones injected into animals prior to slaughter. d) Being vegetarian is much cheaper, and provided you do it right, less wasteful. e) Pure habit. I've never eaten meat and I don't intend to start any time soon.
  • Yes i do. Lamb is my favourite, then smoked fish, prawns, other seafood, beef and chicken. I also occasionally eat venison, and have tried zebra, crocodile, emu, shark fin, kangaroo, and probably a few others that I can't remember. I eat meat because I like it, it tastes good and I don't seem to feel full without it. there are meats such as zebra and emu that i have tried but would not eat them again because they didn't taste too good. there are also meats like chicken and beef that have to be cooked well to appreciate them. Lamb and seafodd is pretty tasty, as is crocodile, but i don't eat much croc, while venison and kangaroo are absolutely gorgeous. i wouldn't consider myself to be full of morals, I see nothing wrong with the breeding and killing of animals purely for consumption as food, but I would draw the line at sharks fin, i later learned that the shark has its fins chopped off and is thrown back in the sea, where it drowns because sharks have to swim to breathe, something that is somewhat difficult with your fins chopped off, I felt it was a waste of such a beautiful beast.
  • I do indeed eat meat. While I don't agree with the methods a lot of major meat/poultry producers use to raise their livestock, I personally could not survive without meat. Especially bacon.
  • Yes, I eat meat. I seem to have high protein demands and just think I would miss it too much if I gave it up. Still, I love to cook and try new things. I think I like ALL food too much (:
  • I stopped eating meat as a child. The meat we were served was very chewy. Maybe that's why. I will eat an occasional hamburger. I like ham and seafood, but never ever eat chicken or anything else that has skin, bones, veins and rubbery stuff in it. I have nothing against people who do eat it, in fact I kind of envy them as they get their protein rather effortlessly and enjoyably.
  • I eat a lot of fish (raw) and rice, tofu and soba, etc these days. Coming from a meat eating country like NZ, I was a typical daily meat eater. Now I still like it I guess, but not as much as I did before. I'll have it occasionally.
  • I do eat meat. Mostly Chicken, but also beef. Occasionally pork, and even less often fish (salmon and tuna, mostly). I don't like seafood other than a few kinds of fish. I will eat lamb if someone else prepares it, but I don't buy it for myself. I grew up eating a diet that contained some meat, it wasn't a lot most of the time... a little chicken with dinner, or some spaghetti sauce or chili with some ground beef in it. Not a "meat and potatoes" kind of diet, really. In high school I tried to give up meat. (My boyfriend was vegetarian, so I was never eating meat around him anyway.) I tried, but I really really like a little meat in my diet, with an occasional hamburger or steak. I had to give up. A vegetarian diet wasn't for me. I usually have a chicken breast with a bunch of veggies and a little rice, with a salad, for dinner. I don't eat meat at lunch very often, since I usually have a sandwich, and I hate deli meats... so its a veggie sandwich. So I wouldn't say that I eat a LOT of meat, but I do eat it, and I like it, and I don't intend to give it up. I do have a lot of respect for those who can, because I do believe that a vegetarian diet is a very healthy way to go.
  • Yes, especialy if it's grilled! I hear, too much red meat can be bad for you.
  • Yeah, I'm quite a carnivore. The other night I was real hungry but I didn't want to cook so I had a big bowl of cereal. I was still hungry after that, so I ate 3 clementines and a banana. I still felt empty then so I thought to myself the hell with it and threw some chicken on the grill. I doubt I could be a vegetarian because the meat cravings just take over sometimes. I don't think there's anything wrong with eating meat really, it's all part of the cycle of life: Some animals eat plants, some animals eat other animals, and people will eat whatever is put on their plate. amen.
  • I eat meat...But not alot of it...I couldn't go without meat though...haha
  • Yes, I eat meat because I am an omnivore.
  • I'm not vegetarian, but I seem to subconciously not eat meat anyway. I eat it very, very rarely. And if so, usually chicken, at a push perhaps a steak, but never seafood, and absolutely NEVER pork, for some reason.
  • The only meats I eat are wild-caught fish and shellfish, and sometimes poultry that comes from small local farms, where I know what they feed and how they treat their animals. I eat them only once or twice a week, mostly because I feel best when I eat a primarily vegetarian diet, but also because for moral/ethical reasons.
  • Yes. Because meat is good. sausage is good. Pork chops and hamburgers and fried chicken is a all good.Dried or broiled, grilled or cooked over a campfire on a stick... meat is good.
  • yes. simply because it tastes good.
  • Yes, but more and more just chicken or fish for protein, because beef and pork upset my stomach...
  • Yes, red meat and white meat, white meat 4 to 5 days a week and red meat the rest.
  • As Elaine once said I dont eat anything that had parents.
  • Yes. I eat it because it is a good source of protein, and although I believe in kind treatment of animals, I don't object to people eating meat...unless I think about things such as lady fuschia's reasons for not eating meat- then the idea of eating meat does seem kind of gross. I don't eat much beef, usually just chicken and fish.
  • I eat chicken and fish, that's about it. I do this because I feel red meat and swine is unhealthy, also because I have great respect for the Islamic faith and their doctrines. Purity is essential.
  • i eat meat for 2 reasons 1.it tastes good 2.when i was a kid my parents gave me meat and i had no objections....so why change?
  • I don't eat anything that wouldn't gnaw on me first!
  • yep and it's awesome
  • Yes, I eat meat because I like the taste of many meats and there are nutritional benefits. I don't eat meat each and every meal, I probably eat meat much less often than many people. BTW, I respect vegetarians and vegans, but often find that they do not respect my choice to eat meat. I've had to tell more than one not to make any more little comments.
  • Yes, I do sometimes. Why, because I DO know that animals who are killed for meat are also abused most of the time. I am totally against the abuse of animals but I think that that is no reason to become veg. I believe if people can become HUMANE instead of abusive to animals then killing them for food wouldn't be so bad. I want to be a member of the ALF. I think that we all should become soldiers for the poor animals who are getting ABSUED, not killed w/o pain. If this makes any sense at all...
  • No, I just dont like it too much.
  • I used to be a vegetarian for about ten years, but I found it very hard as I like the taste of meat. I never got rid of my cravings for meat. Now I decided to eat meat about three times a week. The meat I eat is Free Range meat as I object to intensive farming. It cost a lot more but I don't feel as guilty when I eat meat, knowing that the animals had a good life before they were slaughtered. This seems to be a good balance for me.
  • I haven't eaten meat since 1984 and do not miss it in the least. Others have mentioned the inhumane animal husbandry practices that shame our society, and the many health benefits of a vegetarian diet, so I won't go on about those points. I do want to state that as soon as I stopped eating meat, within a week all meat started to smell very bad to me. This makes it very easy indeed to maintain my diet; in fact I very seldom even think about it these days, unless I am visiting a country (such as the U.S.) where it is difficult to find decent vegetarian food. Britain must be about 30 years ahead of the States in this regard. Finally, I think "chicken" (modern intensively reared birds) and the "mystery meat" in burgers and Chinese foods seem the most distasteful to me now. In some hypothetical desert island situation I would eat anything, even human flesh, if I needed it to survive. Short of that I am happy with my pulses, grains, fruits and vegetables. Never ever having to go inside a McDonald's is merely one of the side-benefits of such a diet!
  • Lacto-ovo veg here for several years. Very happy that way too. Saw Meet Your Meat on the same day I foolishly watched video of a British hostage in Iraq getting his head sawn off by his captives. I just thought "Wow, mammals all make the same horrific rasping, burbling, squealing pitiful sounds when they are killed! Who would want to eat that?" and never touched meat again. Took a bite into my mouth and spat it out about 2 years ago just to confirm my suspicion that meat in just not food to me anymore. It's death. As a veg I have seen a nice improvement in my overall health too.
  • First and the only one To kill for taste is an idea I dont cherish Now, people can argue stupidly that we do even kill plants to eat. To those people, can you eat a man/woman like the cannibals. You feel surely gross right. Why do you think that a life a human is more important than that of any other living being? Only because you dont understand them? Only because they cannot communicate to us about what they feel? People run for animal rights for seals and fur, but what about the poor animals slaughtered everyday? Nobody cares To kill for taste, is very gross.
  • Yes, I do because a) It tastes good. b) Meat provides essential nutrients which are very difficult to obtain from a vegetarian diet. c) Its natural. We are omnivores, we have both sets of teeth. Having said that, I only ever eat free range, local meat and limit it to about 4 times a week, as it can be expensive and I prefer fish :)
  • I am like the other poster who still eats chicken turkey and seafood because one day I got an email about pig gestation cages and it really bothered me morally. I cannot even stand the smell of pork. Eventually I think I will stop eating the birds too because it bothers me about how they are factory farmed and the conditions they live under. I think I will not have a problem with still eating fish. Tilapia is one of my favorites and not very expensive. I also will not wear fur and I buy my dog organic dog food with only human grade chicken in it. It costs more but if you ever researched what is in dog food you would be horrified. Also if you go to the PETA website there is a very disturbing undercover video about the research done on Beagles by Iams. It is really horrible and should be against the law. I also will not eat Kentucky fried chicken because of the torture they put the chickens thru. I admire anyone who does not eat animals but do not condemn those who do. Some people just do not realize the horrible lives that pigs and cows live and the torture they are forced to endure.
  • Yes...I am a carnivore. I don't like to eat food that comes from plants.
  • i don't eat red meat because i don't have much of a colon left and red meat don't digest.i do eat chicken though. that can digest.
  • Good reason why NOT to
  • I eat chicken as long as its plain not cooked in oil or fat I dont eat much red meat at all unless its forced upon me I dont like it and its alot higher in fats and such
  • yes I eat meat, I raise my own meat I dont go a meal without meat. I'm cooking brats and chicken right now. As long as the animals are raised and slaughtered in a humane fashion it's what I beleive they were put here for.
  • yes, i eat meat because it taste good.
  • Yes, it tastes great and has proteins and vitamins.
  • I hate the thought of killing any animal. That being said, I LOVE EATING MEAT!
  • Yes, but in moderation. I will usually only have one meat item on my plate at any one time. Especially if it's red meat. I try to only eat red meat once a weak. The fat and cholestorol contents are just too high. Chicken and fish for me, mainly. I'll eat pork pretty sparingly, too. I don't really buy too much venison, mutton or buffalo. Even though I've heard buffalo is a much better option health-wise than beef.
  • yes, but not a lot because i don't really like the taste - but i cant ever say no to a beef steak!
  • Yes I eat meat. Why? Well because I love cheeseburgers, hotdogs, Reuben sandwiches, Pot Roast, Roast Beef, Chile, and Gyros. I've always eaten meat since I was little so it's a habit.
  • I was raised (and still live in) the "meat and potatoes" midwest. I've always eaten and still do eat meat. I like the taste of it. The only thing that I've changed the last 5 years is that I eat much leaner cuts of meat, and I tend to eat more poultry since I lost weight and got healthier. I also eat vegetarian meals as well. But, meat is the best source of protein. I have a well-rounded, healthy diet.
  • I love meats. I eat them regularly more than veggies and I do simply because I always have.
  • Yes, I do.
  • yes, but i don't eat fish. thats not right.
  • I'm an avid meat eater.
  • Yes, in moderation. +3
  • yes I do several times a day.
  • yes, every meal...except breakfast maybe...
  • Once in awhile .. +5
  • Yep, I had some last night. Plan on having more for lunch today :) Course, I'm having other things besides just meat.
  • nope gave last year
  • How about you? don't you like it? in some religions, people don't eat meat, but most of the people do. I prefer sea food more then meat.
  • Yeah.+5
  • not much i prefer a nice fillet of salmon xxx
  • Proudly! +++
  • Yup. I tried giving it up but then my family was going out for McDonalds and i couldn't resist..lol.I went a week without meat.
  • Yes usually at lunch and dinner.
  • All the time.I eat vegetables rarely because I'm not a big fan of them.
  • Yes, I do.
  • Hello there :) I have not eaten meat for about 2 years and I feel wonderful! Although I am mostly vegetarian I do sometimes eat seafood very rarely. We were not not meant to eat meat everyday and it is really not that that good for you. My grandfather who was from Greece and lived to be almost 100 rarely ate meat and when the family did eat meat, it was on special holidays or weddings and just to celebrate and many people shared from that one animal. We were not meant to consume the dead flesh of animals everyday. Just think of it going through your digestive system and how hard your body and organs are working to digest it. It slows you down and the more you eat the worse it is for you. In the days of old, people would hunt and if they were lucky enough to kill an animal, then they would have a feast for a whole village or they would preserve the meat to eat on rare occasions, they mostly they ate soups beans and potatoes. It's common sense...Plain and simple as that! If you want to live a longer and healthy life, cut down on meat and animal products start eating more fruits & veggies .
  • Yes, I love the taste of meat. I would rather eat meat than vegetables and fruits to be honest and do not plan on changing.
