    No, as I enjoy the taste of some meat too much.

    Pretty sure it's all down to genetics as long as you aren't eating complete crap each day.

    You're not really short though

    If you're a male you've still got time to grow aswell
    Haha, cheered me up. I drink a lot of almond milk and eat a LOT of greens, so calcium definitely isn't an issue... oh well.

    In the last 2 years i've been experimenting with vegetarianism, at first i stopped all meat, and i was able to do this for 8 months which is surprising considering i come from an African household, but then i realised that i wasn't doing it in a healthy way, i wasn't substituting my lack of meat with other protein options. So then i decided to become a pescatarian and i did that for 10 months or so and now i've started to reintroduce chicken into my diet( but only once a week or two). I personally wish i was vegan ,but it's very difficult because i live at home and the rest of my family are meat-lovers and it is hard to find substitutes (vegan meals) at home.

    I doubt I'll go vegetarian/vegan tbh. Mainly because I'm worried about if it would make it harder to control my diabetes t1, plus I like bacon, a lot...

    I could never become vegan ever, at least from reading the information online... It seems like a lot work and honestly pointless in a lot of ways...Now on the other hand, I have thought about becoming a vegetarian after my science lesson (about the eco-system etc lol) and I decided to lower the amount of fish/meat I eat, but I could never completely give up eating them even if I do love animals...

    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:
    Vegan. Overnight. Easiest thing I've ever done.

    In what ways is it 'pointless'?

    A couple of years ago I did try being vegetarian because I thought a diet change would be interesting. My mum is master of the kitchen and she didn't want to cook two meals and she also didn't want to buy two sets of ingredients so I could make something myself. She usually just put aside some food for me before she put the meat in. She said I had to eat fish for protein, so I was pescatarian for a year and became vegetarian for another year (after she got used to it).
    It wasn't too bad, but a bit of a pain to find things to eat sometimes. I was quite strict with myself so if something had animal gelatin in, I wouldn't eat it. While I was vegetarian, I went on holiday to Disneyland Florida and there was hardly anything nice to eat (the Disney parks didn't even have chips, only crisps, and sold these massive turkey legs that you'd see people walking around with).
    I'm a meat eater now (only chicken and lamb), because I didn't have any real reason to try being vegetarian, I was just experimenting. I don't see anything wrong with eating animals or dairy. Maybe one day I'll turn vegetarian again, but probably not vegan.

    Not a chance; I'm too much of a fussy eater. If i went vegetarian I'd die within a month.

    Vegetarianism was easy for me and I don't think I'll ever look back. I'm wanting to go vegan, but I have health issues which make cooking more of a challenge a lot of the time and vegan convenience food is harder to come by. I'm fine avoiding out right animal products like milk and eggs, but when they're hidden in veggie foods it's difficult. I do eat a mainly vegan diet though and it's made me feel better in so many ways
