What diet is best in your opinion? (POLL)Watch
But there is no option of "my own diet"
I personally eat whatever I like, but I don't think the amount of animal protein we consume is going to be a sustainable option in the future at all. There is an obvious and real moral case for not wanting support an industry which routinely - and often horrifically - mistreats animals, and which necessitates environmental destruction, but in the context of our electronics and clothing being supported by conditions tantamount to slavery, poverty and disease killing children by the thousands and the huge instances of homelessness, even in more economically developed countries, it does not rank enormously highly on the list of things I would expend emotional energy trying to address.
Plus steak is delicious.
That said, practically I think a vegetarian diet would be better for people. I wouldn't say that meat is bad for you, rather the meat products that most would buy are bad for you. Stuff like processed meats, etc.

In the evenings I have recently started eating more vegan, with things like cusco, quinoa, kidney beans (have this amazing recipe for burgers using kidney beans) lentils. But then there are days where I eat meat.
I just think you need to find a mix that suits you and gives you enough variety. Personally I think only eating meat, or rather saying every dinner I want some form of meat would be boring after a while, but likewise cutting it out completely, would be too.
In terms of sustainability, sure meat has a bigger impact. And in the long run, humans definitely need to limit the amount of meat being eaten. But I do not think it is necessary to do so completely.
When was the last time you, as an 'omnivore', ate raw chicken without being ill? Every other carnivorous animal doesn't cook it's meat.
Believe me, I used to agree with you, but look into it and be vegan for your body and mind
