    For those of you that eat meat, do you think you'll ever become vegetarian? What puts you off doing so?

    And for vegetarians, the same questions, but for veganism? :holmes:

    This time last year I ate meat and could never imagine giving it up. But now I'm vegan

    I always assumed I needed meat to be healthy and that veggie/vegan food would be bland and unfulfilling. I've done a complete 180 since and actually feel so much better for cutting it all out my diet.

    Woah, that's quite the turnaround! What made you decide to make the change?

    I tried a vegan diet for 2 months but gave up because I kept craving chicken.

    I was veggie for about 5 years but lapsed. I can see myself returning to vegetarianism at some point because I still struggle with some of the ethics around eating meat (more the environmental arguments than eating meat per se).

    After reading and seeing the things I did, I couldn't imagine ever eating meat or dairy again. So I haven't
    (I also really love animals!)

    Have considered many times! I'm more interested in vegetarianism, though, at least to start off with. The only thing holding me back is that I live in a family of meat eaters (my mother was a vegetarian and my stepdad was vegan, I don't think either of them are interested in going back to that lifestyle). I do try, though, I cut down my meat consumption as much as I can. When I go to university, I have plans to go completely veggie, and move on to veganism through there.

    I have a friend at sixth form who's vegan - she's been a real inspiration to me, and she seems really happy with her choice. She's also given me a lot of encouragement. Apart from that, I do agree with the ethical side of it, and I think the environmental impacts are pretty important to consider too.

    I have too many food allergies. It's already annoying having to find things I can eat without the added pressure of having to avoid animal products. I could probably avoid the obvious stuff if I wanted to, but I would get fed up of looking for the "hidden" stuff
