I've been a vegetarian for 18 years! I never liked meat though.
I DON'T think it's unhealthy to eat meat, the industry is unhealthy. If you like meat and find a healthy source like a farm with ecobeneficial practices, or hunt invasive game, the. kudos to ya. Everyones body is different with different needs, though, gotta listen to the way your body reacts to the different foods you eat.

Además, sería bueno conocer a alguien vegetariano con quien compartir experiencias (y recetas) ;)

Vegetarian in progress! :la:
Estaba pensando en volverme vegana por los animales y la crueldad animal desde que vi este video makeitpossible.com/
(Advertencia XD: puede dejarte pensando por un buen rato, sólo diré, velo si te interesa proteger a los animales y además si quieres ver muchos más beneficios de ser vegetariano o vegano)
El problema es que mi madre, que no quiere ver el video, cree que esto es solo un capricho mío y me ha apoyado PERO aun esperando que "salga de esta etapa" y me olvide de todo, pero... no puedo u.u
Además aún no tengo dinero para comprarme mi propia comida y debo comer, casi casi, de lo que hay.

pfff... es algo que me ha estado mortificando ultimamente :P

((I've also tried doing this once. It's a little hard at first, and not very healthy for you. I'm not full on though, I do eat a burger every once and awhile. But that only happens once every couple months. My suggestion would be to lay off the meat a little and eat every so often. Me being a girl, meat is a vital importance. So if you do go for this, just don't completley deprive your self of steak or burgers))

Solamente como balanceado lo vegetal con la carne en vez de clavarme en el clasico "la carne hace crecer" y el "con esto no sufren". No podria vivir sin el sabor de la carne, pero eso no me impide que este acompañado de deliciosa lechuga

my father was and now he is a vegan. Just becarful you body still needs a lot of protein and meat is a protein. There are substitutes for protein like soy and beans and protein bars. But after a while i think I would get bored eating bean soup like dad does everyday. I need it for when my time of the month comes kinda sucks. But I wish you luck it isnt easy. Also certain meats are hard on the stomach conduct an experiment on which meats cause you a problem. People tell me its pork and sometimes beef.

I am already allergic for chocolate, nuts, pig meat, crustaceans, cow milk (goat milk is ok) so I not gonna ban any kind of meat and fish!
Plus as long the animal had a good and not too short life you can eat his meat, it's nature.

Well, it's rather easy. I've never been a full time veggie, but I have given up meat for Lent twice before. The first time I thought it'd be like giving up air, but it's not bad at all. Then again, I still did eat fish, as I don't count that as meat. If you do decide to become a veggie, at least still eat fish. It's full of oily goodness! :D

It's a lot easier to turn vegetarian than you'd think :D I did it a year ago and haven't looked back since. Quorn is you're friend if you're just starting out, they do vegetarian burgers and sausages and everything. I get all my iron and vitamin B from cereal and protein from free range eggs usually.

Good luck~! :meow:

Vegetarianism isn't necessarily healthy, you lose alot of nutrients meat contains so that means you'll have to take supplements to make up for it. I myself am considering going vegetarian to lose weight, it worked for my sister and her family. You said meat upsets your stomache? If it really bothers you, go ahead and go vegetarian but ask your doctor about it and pills and such first.

I'm pretty much repeating other stuff people have already told you, aren't I? Anyway, If you're dead set on being a vegetarian I'd seek someone who knows what they're doing and have them help you along the way.

A decir verdad odio las carnes, no todas claro. La única que me gusta comer es pollo, y sólo la parte más seca que es la pechuga de pollo. Cualquier otra carne simplemente la evito. Prefiero comer ensaladas, osea... Lanza una lechuga a mi plato y seré feliz por todo el día ~... Sí, a ése extremo... Aunque no he pensado en ser vegetariana, o al menos no lo he pensado completamente pero.. dudo serlo algún día... 
Será raro, pero cuando veo que los vegetarianos(algunos) no comen carne por salvar a los animales, ya que son seres vivos, me dan ganas de recordarles que las plantas, verduras y frutas que están comiendo en algún momento también tuvieron vida, y, a mi vista, es casi lo mismo... o pero, ya que le tengo más apego a las plantas. 
Adoraría poder alimentarme de aire y rayos solares, sería perfecto... Ahg, pero será.
Como sea, es decisión tuya el volverte o no vegetariano, pero sea lo que sea que escojas, te deseo suerte en ello Shawn ;D !

Gracias! Yo lo hago por mi estomaguito (Tengo gastritis, y severa)

Y sí, yo no entiendo toda esa cosa de los animales, la verdad. Es decir, hay más animales aparte de los humanos que comen carne, osea otros animales. Y esos no se andan con miramientos, se los comen vivos!-- o los matan a sangre fría.  Y claro, las plantas también están vivas y sienten! --- OH! dato curioso que aprendí en mis clases de sociolingüística y quizá te interese:
Según unos investigadores que alegan que las plantas se comunican entre ellas, cuando cortas una flor/ planta, ésta se comunica con las otras por medio de una sustancia que produce al ser cortada para avisarle a las otras que están en peligro (No sé cuál sea el objetivo, no creo que vayan a correr)
Pero si tomas en cuenta eso, creo que la planta va a tener más miedo que el animal... es decir, uno al menos tiene una oportunidad para escapar.

Oh, entonces debes cuidarte !

Sí, pero bueno, ellos tienen sus preferencias y hacen lo que creen bueno, fue su
decisión... ugh.
Ahora con más razón amo mis plantas! *corre a abrazar su jardín*
Tampoco creo que vayan a correr, aunque hay cierto tipo de plantas con defensas, 
como tener espinas, espigas, o puntas que crean molestia en la piel del atacante, o
en algunos casos envenenan. Así que si es un tanto razonable que se comuniquen si 
están en peligro.
Claro que tendrá más miedo, las pobres... A veces odio ver como en jardines públicos 
algunas personas se dan el lujo de cortar alguna flor, para verla y luego tirarla como si
nada, sin notar que al hacer eso le quitan su vitalidad... Muchas veces he deseado que 
noten que cada planta es bella en su lugar y habitad, y que no las deben perturbar pero...
Al humano destruye todo a su paso, por más pequeño que sea lo que haga, lo hace.

I tried one time, but my family wasn't really supportive x.x we usually have veggies at every meal though and I grew up eating them so I find it strange to only eat meat o.o

Ah, I understand. It happens with every diet. You wanna eat soemthing, but then your family buys other things to eat, etc.

The thing I'm sure I won't be able to give up is a good hamburguer! xD
I rarely eat them ( Like 3 times a year, maybe) but I sure love 'em!
Otherwise than that, I think I can make meat aside, haha.

I've heard you have to be really careful if you decide to become a vegetarian, since you'll be missing essential nutrients. Humans were meant to eat meat along with plants, and really, meat isn't bad for you, it all depends on how you cook and eat it. If you do decide to become a vegetarian, I advise you still eat fish, if not, then at least beans.

You might want to do some research to formulate a proper dietary plan as well to avoid any potential health risks.

No soy fan de la carne ni el pollo... Sólo los como porque... bueno, qué más xD Y porque el pescado, que me encanta, es caro ... 

A decir verdad... si fuera por mi, comería arroz toooodo el dia... Me encanta, asi sea sin nada...  Pero con lo que si no puedo estar, son las frutas! Es como ... no sé... sin chocolate/helado/pizzas...? Algo así ;P
