    Omnivore. I wouldn't be able to cope without meat products as I love cooking, and turning vegetarian would drastically cut down what I can make. Veganism would be even worse; I love cheese!

    I have a similar (sort of) problem. I'm too picky with food to even think about going vegetarian, because I'd be cutting too much out of my diet that I'd struggle to replace.

    And even if vegetarianism could be achievable, going vegan and cutting out chocolate, eggs (for baking) and decent milk in my tea certainly wouldn't.

    same here, was a vegetarian for a month but it was too hard to sustain in a meat eating family.
    At least you lasted for more than a week

    I would love to go vegetarian and did try for a week, but with my family's food being centred around meat and fish it's really difficult. A vegetarian dish is only made like once a fortnight. Maybe when I live alone I can have a better try.

    I could never become vegan though. I already eat little and restricting my diet so severely would probably be harmful.

    From an environmental standpoint it would be really good if everyone became a vegitarian.

    Omnivore here but i've thought a few times about going part vegitarian, i'd still probably eat fish and eggs.

    If it's centered around fish a lot, you could try pescatarianism and go from there c: That's what I did, and it does ease you into it more.

    Vegetarian for 20 years, was a vegan for 4 of those. Veganism was too much of an effort so gave it up, I'm pretty much a "natural" vegetarian in that I stopped eating meat because i hated it. I can't even eat the meat substitutes I find them disgusting, whereas I actually like cheese and had to put effort into being a vegan... that was pretty painful. Know too many vegetarians and quite a few vegans. Pretty much ever vegan I know is bonkers so that is another thing that put me off staying one.

    Vegan for a while now, and November is world vegan month, so it's a good time to start making changes!

    Vegan for two years in December. Never felt better and all of my blood tests show me in the perfect range for iron and B12 without supplements. I was anemic as an omnivore over 10 years ago and then this passed when I went Vegetarian five years ago. :yay:
