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...

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

I would definitely consider becoming a vegetarian. My dad is a vegetarian but I just struggle that I wouldn’t be able to keep it up or not get enough protein which is important for me as I’m a sprinter

I was vegetarian in my teens, but ultimately gave it up. My health suffered for it even despite trying to eat a balanced diet and taking supplements. When I started eating meat again I really started to enjoy it, which is something I didn't before going vegetarian in the first place. I learned to really appreciate the meat and fish ate.

Even if I did decide to go vegetarian again I don't think I could go vegan. Life without cheese doesn't sound enjoyable.

I'm a vegetarian. As much as I know milk is wrong, I can't give it up. I have it in tea which helps my anxiety, it's basically my only vice lol. Anyway, there's no way I'm going back to meat. I love quorn and I felt guilty every time I ate any meat.

I am a meat eater and If I have to slaughter animals by my own one day, that is the moment of time I become a vegetarian, as I can't hurt animals to eat them.

No, never. For a start the unexplainable magic held within bacon is too good to give up and accossiating with people like Earthling Ed should be a crime

You can get a lot of milks that aren't derived from animals, such as coconut, rice, almond, soya, etc.

Strongly seconded, I really like having milk on cereal and in hot drinks etc, but there are loads of alternatives that are just as nice!

Now, if only there were a nice vegan cheese

I'm currently trying to cut out cows milk from diet. Like you say, there are some pretty nice milks out there. Oat milk is nice, as is goats milk.

Soya milk is rather vile though! The yoghurts aren't too bad.

Currently enjoying goats cheese. Lacto free cheese isn't too bad either.

I'm vegan. I have been for 1 1/2 years, vegetarian for 20 years before. All my family eat meat.
When you educate yourself on animal suffering, how they are tortured, raped and murdered, and that we don't need it anyway, in fact we thrive so much more without animal products, you go vegan.
Then you learn about your health and the environment.
A lot of it is education. It's all well and good saying you love it too much, but even considering your own health and that it causes high cholesterol, heart disease and cancer, you'd see it's not worth having.
Plus, vegan food is amazing.
