Poll: Why do you (not) eat meat?

Uh, because meat is food, and food is what I eat. I'm not gonna eat dirt, now am I? That's just dumb.

I like the taste and have no moral issues regarding the treatment of animals before they die. Mainly because I know nothing about it.

because DEATH TO THE SALAD EATERS

Because it tastes good. I don't need any other reason.

Millions of years of evolution turned me omnivore, 10 years of nutrition specialists saying that vegetables are good, then bad, then good, then start recommending low carb diets, then high carb diets and all that bullshit has done nothing to convince me to go against what evolution pushed me towards.

We do in fact not have the ability to utilize all the nutrition which is stored inside vegetables. This is a digestive process which takes place in the appendix, an organ we have no use for because it's been reduced to almost nothing. The animals that eat plants are made to do so in one way or another. We are made to eat both, thus we can't get the same from only plants.

Brain development also require fat in quantities we don't get from plants.
Also bacon.

yea low/high carb diets are not Good for you

they eater make you lose weight becasue your body cant process nothing but fat/proteen.
or they clog your digestive tract

only diet that is healthy for you is a balanced one.

I eat meat because it is natural (and bacon is the food of gods). Humans have teeth designed for eating meat, after all.

cause... nomnomnomnom

I eat meat because meat is awesome and I shall not rest until I've tasted every animal (and possible a small fraction of all bugs) in the world!

Although, I have no idea how I will find someone who will let me kill and eat a panda though... I might just study hard into and make my own. :P

Since you put "Bacon" as your only meat allowed option, I'm forced to click it. And even then, bacon isn't usually the focus of a meal. It usually helps compliment something else, like pancakes and eggs...all nice and crispy...sorry, lost my train of thought.

My point is that there's nothing wrong with eating meat in any sence. Plants and animals are both alive and animals eat other animals so it's all fair game, humans are omnivores after all. This is one of those cases which I say eat what you want and believe what you want, just don't force what your views on me/others.

I only really eat bacon on occasion - and only because I really don't like pigs. That and occasionally corned beef.... Don't like cattle either - they fart too much.
The way I see it by eating the cow that'd otherwise produce methane - I am actually saving the environment.

That and really - just me stopping eating meat won't stop animal cruelty everywhere, so it's not like there's any point.

Tastes AWESOME and I need proteins!

Basic stuff...

I eat meat...
why? because it tastes good, keeps me alive and builds my body with the proteins and fats I get from it. And also easy access.
As for the bad for the enviroment thing, well if we didn't eat meat and continue to keep alive animals that should've died out long ago (some tigers, rhinos, pandas etc) then this world would be largely overpopulated.
But I don't really have any reason why I do it, ideological or religious or any other, I was raised with meat and still eat it, that's it.

For the same reason I eat fruits, vegetables, cheese, grain, etc.
Because it tastes good. And alternative protein sources generally taste like shit.

I've been on both sides. I ate meat, then was dared to not eat it by a friend, this lasted almost 2 years. In those 2 years I moved away from home and learned to cook, even though the dare was only for a year I could only cook veggie meals until I decided to go back to meat.

Now I just sit on the fence. I eat meat, but I know perfectly well that the big pile of veg in the fridge is going in a thai green curry tonight.

I don't eat meat becase I don't like the taste of it. I was never raised on meat so, to me, it tastes disgusting. Also, too much meat can easily get you fat.

I love sport fishing though. I love watching those damn fish flap and die.

Because its yum, makes me not hungry, and because i can.

All perfectly legitimate reasons.

Aris Khandr:
Because it is tasty. Why do I eat anything? I like how it tastes when I put it into my mouth.

Oh so exploitive :D

anyway i eat meat because bacon, and if I don't eat it someone else does or its wasted and i think wasting food exspecially meat is the greatest insult to the animal's life.

I do, because animal fat is far easier to digest and is a far more efficient energy source than any grain.

As for how raising meat is harmful to the environment... blame that on government subsidies for corn and beef (but wheat is just as bad). Same reason we've got so many fat people in the US.

So yeah, no good poll options... not that I have anything against bacon, it's just not much of a reason.


Murder tastes god damn good.

I eat meat for two reasons. One, our bodies are designed to eat it, two, it fucking tastes good.

Soods:

I do not eat meat because I believe it is harmful for the environment.

I'd love how it's harmful to the environment to have a herd of cattle grazing naturally on a field as opposed to having an army of heavy equipment churning the dirt up and spewing CO2 into the air to grow vegetables.

It is delicious, also natural and healthy. Eating both meat and vegetables keeps you both healthy and intelligent - Predators are naturally more intelligent than herbivores and omnivorous creatures like pigs, monkeys, humans and mice are more intelligent still.

I live / work on a farm raising sheep and cows for meat so the ethical angle isn't a problem for me, we treat our animals very well. We treat them with love and respect, keep them well fed, protected from the weather and protected against sickness.

My brother actually tried to reason that it was cheaper to euthanize severely sick sheep than treat them with various medicines, but mum yelled at him so hard his balls retracted inside his body in terror. Slaughter may be the end of the line for most of them, but we make sure their lives until that point are far better than the conditions any wild animals live under.

I like the taste.
I don't get all the hype bacon gets though...
I prefer fish..
And I don't give a damn about the environment.

Oh wait... you were adressing humans...
I'll go over there now...

Soods:
Greetings humans. Today I would simply like to know, why do you eat meat? And if you do not eat meat, you can tell why not.

I do not eat meat because I believe it is harmful for the environment. And I hate the greasy taste it leaves in my mouth. Also: "Look at me! I'm so hipster for not eating meat!"

Now your turn!

I LOVE the greasy taste some meat leaves. It reminds me of a spit. The more grease, the more I want to get out my claymore and smack some Englishmen around.

Lamb chops are amazing in this regard.

Burgers aren't all that greasy, at least the way me and my dad make them, and they still taste delicious. And yes, I've tried tofuburgers and beanburgers, they both taste nasty. Almost like they aren't made of meat.

manic_depressive13:
I can't justify unnecessary slaughter to myself, so even though I liked the taste and it made up a large part of my diet at the time, I stopped eating meat. The ridicule I had to put up with when I gave it up was so absurd that it only strengthened my resolve.

You post would be less silly if people hadn't actually done the calculation and worked out that roughly twice as many animals are killed per calorie for grains and vegetables as for meat products.

Plus, the slaughter is even more senseless, since we don't eat the mice/groundhogs/etc killed in the process of raising and harvesting grain, for instance.

What are you talking about? The vast majority of animals raised for consumption are grain fed. Your post would be less embarrassing for you if you had considered the obvious before making an insultingly patronising post. Those snuggly little wood mice are as good as dead either way.

Why you steal my "Because pastries/dough-based breakfast stuffs/strangely relavent thing" saying?

OT: Obviously due to *long list of meat products* tasting good.

I actually found out from somewhere that pig and lamb is more sustainable than some of the weird vegan foods.

Because I spent several hundred millennia evolving as an omnivore, the so-called "reasoning" that one does not "need" to eat meat to survive is easily (and already soundly) debunked for any meaningful value of "survive" and because it's goddamn tasty.

the pollution and environmental destruction from the manufacturing and to power this computer I am typing from has caused the death of more animals than I could possibly eat in a decade...

take that mother nature!!!! YAY

It's gotten to the point where I don't even realize that I'm eating animals anymore. I don't care. The fuckers taste to good.

I like steak, what else can I say? And most vegetarians I know don't seem to understand why they are vegetarians themselves when I ask them. Or they are hypocrites without ever having thought about it.

Humanity spent thousands of years working it's way to the top of the food chain, to stop eating meat is like turning your back on all the hard work our ancestors did, and if you do that the Bovine terrorists win.

Well, you can get proper nourishment from just vegetables, but it is the equivalent of deciding clothes are artificial and environmentally unfriendly and then developing a high-tech polymer you can implant directly into your skin to prevent you from dying of exposure during the winter when you go naturist.

Or you can eat normally and be done with it.

So that's what I do. No regrets. I've killed my own food before, having grown in a farm-like environment, and I've grown my own food as well. Most vegans probably have a larger carbon footprint than I do.

1) I don't like the taste of most meat, or it's difficult to prepare to my tastes (I only like bacon if it's been grilled to death)
2) I don't like the thought of eating cute little animals
3) I wouldn't be able to kill an animal for food, so why should I have the right to eat it?
4) Crops for food are much easier and more environmentally friendly to produce

Sadly I have anemia (lack of iron in my blood) so the doctors have encouraged me to start eating meat again until I get out of my busy schedule and have enough time to prepare proper nutritious meals

It happens to taste good. Also I don't know how well vegetables would taste smoked, which is something I like to do with various meats.
