I eat meat myself. Having grandparents that supply us with fresh farm meat that isn't full of steroids is awesome, although we get stuff from the store when need be.

Plus if I didn't eat meat I'd be missing on bacon. Mmmmmmmmm.... *drool*

I'm a carnivore, pure and simple. I can't live without real hamburgers, ribs (pork or beef), hotdogs, chicken, bacon, sausage, turkey, pepperoni, and sometimes ham.

I eat my vegetables still. I always feel good after eating some broccoli.

I'm almost a vegetarian, lol. I still eat any seafood that isn't boiled alive, since I live with my parents and they don't really like that I want to be a vegetarian, because it means they can't eat steak for every meal anymore, so I have to at least eat some sort of meat for them I guess. I have absolutely no desire to go back to eating any of the meat that I've dropped... it's just disgusting now. Not tempting in the slightest anymore.

I eat meat but I like white meat or fish more than red meat. I have it from time to time too, though!
I find meat is an easy way to get protein and other vitamins in my diet, and whilst I know you can get it from beans, spinach, etc, the nutrition content isn't exactly the same, and I feel it'd be a bit difficult to me to try and plan my meals around vegetables solely- especially when I'm not bothered about buying or cooking meat. It seems like Sainsburys, Waitrose, or M and S doesn't even sell plain hard or soft tofu. Just small little bits of this pre-packaged/cooked spicy tofu stuff. (I can't have spicy.) Bummer. Chickpeas are good but high in carbs and fat, but also high in fibre, so that's cool too. I rather have a turkey wrap with a bit of hummus spread on a pita though!
I like meat though, so I wouldn't want to substitute it in my own diet unless I had to.

I only like spiced meat or meat with very strong flavor (pepperoni, salami, bacon), but I think meat without any flavoring is disgusting. Hamburger, porkchops, non-breaded chicken, non-breaded fish, all disgusting. The only time I'll eat chicken or fish is if its got a thick coat of batter or spice. Taco seasoning makes hamburger meat amazing.

I feel bad about it though, and I always side with vegetarian logic (which makes me kind of a hypocrite), but it's the staple of my diet. Almost everything I eat is some sort of meat product. Plus my mom controls what food we buy and there's no way I'm convincing her to go vegetarian again.

I do eat meat.

I personally don't see the point in depriving myself nutritionally because I feel a certain way about an issue. I don't believe that eating meat is necessarily wrong nor do I really see any significant health benefits from refusing to eat meat that isn't cancelled out from the complications that can arise if you don't get enough protein in your diet. We are omnivores by nature; and therefore we can eat anything that we find palatable. Usually things we find palatable are also things that (should) contain things our body needs. (This doesn't include junk foods which are engineered to taste good and contain minimal nutritional value)

I'm fine with people who; for health reasons; only choose to eat white meat, only seafood or a combination of both without eating red meat. I don't find that reasoning to be flawed, and I don't find any diet modification that includes some meat intake on a semi-regular basis to be unusual. I just don't see any significantly logical arguments for being a vegetarian or vegan myself.

I don't think down on those who do choose to be vegetarian or vegan though. I just don't understand it and don't choose to be that way myself. I don't believe it's impossible to correct one's diet and avoid having too much meat anyways. Meat need not be in every meal. I can go as long as a week without meat provided that there's sufficient nutrition substituted for it, although I personally prefer having at least one meal a day featuring some meat in some way; even if I opt for no meat at any other meal in the day.

I don't eat a ton of meat but I don't think it's something I could completely cut out of my diet. Usually if I have a meal with meat it's something chicken-based. My mom cooked a lot of chicken meals when I was growing up so it's my meat of preference. I've been pretty turned off by ground beef over various things I've learned about the food industry over the last few years, but I still have my occasional cheeseburger from fast food restaurants.

If I sit down and think about the killing of animals, then I do feel remorse. I don't however try to do that at all my meals, and thus, do eat meat.

I am a vegaterian I will never eat meat! Why? Lets take a chicken. Imagine being in a hot room crammed with so many other chickens that you have no room. Then your body becomes to heavy for your legs because of drugs so your legs break. Then you get sent to a slaughter house were you a boiled alive. I can never eat meat I have read to many horrors of meat that I can never go back. Also did you know that the grain fed to the animals could be used to feed hungry people? It's true. I don't miss meat and I love beans so I eat those a lot and I'm completely healthy and against meat. I don't see how people can go with eating meat and not feeling guilty

It's just what people do and have always done. In the distant past human needed to hunt down prey to eat. Then the domestication of certain species for consumption (chickens, cows, pigs, goats, etc.) came into being. These animals provide copious amounts of dairy and meat from a single entity. "Why chase the food when you can make it come to you?"

Here's a video of the amount of effort it used to take humans to hunt. Humans literally did, and a few still do, chase the animal for hours on foot until the animal can't flee anymore. Here's a video of a few men persistence hunting.

I personally eat a lot of meat. Love me some medium-rare steak!

No smoked chicken for the rest of my life? Are you kidding me? I'd rather die. :(

I'm probably the one in my family who loves it the most. Although I'm not as big of a fanatic now, I live eat and breathe meat. Sausages, lamb, pork, duck, honestly who can't live without that stuff? It's amazing and I don't plan on being a vegetarian anytime soon. The thought of bacon or smoked chicken just makes me incredibly hungry and they're ten times better than cabbage or what not. :p

I meant to stop, but I can't help it. Our ancestors ate meat, it's in our blood! I refuse to eat meat which has been tortured before-hand, though.

Even then, people don't listen to me and buy me a strange burger. The result?

I ATE IT!! NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM!!

I do eat meat quite a lot, mostly fish, chicken, beef, pork and steak. They taste even better if marinated in honey, as I found out one time my Ma bought pork chops marinated in honey, but they don't do them now

I eat meat for almost every meal I have. The meats I love are chicken, beef, fish and the occasional pork. Don't forget the fruits and the veggies! I'm not a huge fan of veggies, but I don't dislike them either. I don't eat salad though. Fruits, on the other hand, are deeeelicous. It's a must for me to have my share of fruits everyday. This is what my typical meal looks like: meat, veggies and rice with fruits after.

Random trivia: My favourite fish in the whole wide world is salmon. Yum. <3

I'm not too much of a meat eater and I do not really care for most meat. I am skeptical of eating any type of meat that consist of a bone and if I does or if it has fat I will not eat it at all. Yeah, I am a picky eater, but I see nothing wrong with it. The only two meats I will eat are breast chicken and thin beef meat. I'm not comfortable eating things that come from a animal, but I will eat the two items I listed so I would not be able to consider myself a vegan. However, if I were to be a vegetarian I do not think it would be too bad. I see it as bad that I do not eat large amounts of meat because it is a big loss in protein which we all need.
