    Damn this half arsed thread that I created. So many replies
    I've been a vegetarian for 16 years. I love it. It's also because I hate the sight of meat and dead animals. Even McDonald's makes me a bit quesy.

    Prior to that I ate meat and dairy for 28 years. Never thought in a million years I'd go vegan....

    I love it, I feel healthier, have even more energy and more mindful of my body. I eat plant-based for my body, moral and ethical reasons.

    Eating purely plant-based is becoming so much more accessible, lots of restaurants now off vegan options - zizzis, pizza express, las iguanas....

    No one really bats an eyelid anymore which is cool.

    My husband still has some dairy and meat but not so much at home.... he eats vegan with me the majority of the time but picks and choose other options when he fancies it. He feels better for eating more veggie/ vegan food. When he has meat, it's organic and sourced from a farm shop.

    I think people should eat what makes them feel healthy and energised - as natural as possible in terms of cooking from scratch. I dislike all the food judgement that goes on. Food is a really personal choice and it's not for anyone else to make comments or think they're better than anyone else because of what they eat.

    You definitely feel "cleaner" and healthier once you start a vegan diet for a few months. Tried that, felt better too!

    I am 57 now and graduated to vegetarian food to lose weight. I finally gave up meat altogether. Imagining back to when I was a young student to be vegetarian would be difficult. It is partly life style, takeaway city is full of places for carnivores. It is partly money, being vegetarian is best if you can afford to eat higher quality food - which I can now at my age. On ethics, well I believe I should eat what I need and not waste food. I also believe that other carnivorous animals, like cats (who cannot recognise that a vegetable is edible), are part of an ecological system like humans. Humans, unlike cats, could choose to be vegetarian and survive, so eating animals can be challenged ethically maybe. But on balance I can't show an ethical red card to human carnivores. Especially, for example, say humans that are relatively poor, live by the sea, and survive on fish.
