    For a while I have been thinking about altering diet. I usually eat meat regularly, and have eating all walks of life, Snake, rabbit, even deer. Though those are rare occasions. I have been thinking since this year about not eating anymore meat.

    I have been thinking no longer eating lamb, mutton, steak, rump, pork, gammon, etc. but eat free range chicken for awhile and then live on a Pescetarian diet for awhile.

    I have been looking at coming up with a stable Pescetarian diet, yet other then eating different types of fish, is there any other way to liven up the diet, so it does become cumbersome? I have considered eating shark every now and then since gummy shark is not only a different taste, but also quite economical.

    Anyone else on a Pescetarian diet? any suggestions?

    thanks

    I am a pescetarian and you will soon learn to live without meat. Eating fish is not only healthier, but is a great substitute for meat. The best way to liven up the diet is to try different fish, like you say, shark. Also, trying different types of fruit and vegetables that you haven't tried before will make it more interesting.

    No they're just a pescetarian. The concept that anyone who eats meat or fish can claim to be some sort of vegetarian is frankly nonsense.

    Well you could get a 'vegetarian' cook book and then learn to stop placing red & white meat as the main ingrediant in a dish and suppliment it with fish ?

    I dunno i'm a veggie but it's good to hear that your taking a step in the right direction

    It shouldnt be a boring switch as long as you take the time to cook new recipes

    I also find the concept of pescetarianism hugely ridiculous.

    Why? I'm vegetarian but I can see why people might want to distinguish between killing mammals and killing fish.

    Stop giving your inane diet a name. Eat what you want, and make sure you have enough of the necessary nutrients.

    Nothing wrong with it so long as its just a personal decision - I would have a problem if people use it with the same sort of moral spiel many vegetarians use. I don't eat red meats, not because I have a problem with eating red meat (and on occasions I do), but because I just don't wish to, simple as.
