    Germany's strongest man is a vegetarian

    To a lot of people, you eat muscles to get them. That sort of ignores where the beef got the muscle in the first place. So it was nice to see this in the news.

    And then there are elephants and gorillas. Where do they get the muscle?

    Building muscle requires protein. Protein is available from both plant and animal sources.

    I prefer animal sources.

    Prince Fielder - star baseball player (about to get an outrageous 9 figure contract from someone)




    he's a vegetarian too.

    but I guess it just shows the power of genetics and that fact that you can still be fat and follow a vegetarian diet as well.

    genetics.

    Why do certain vegetarians and omnivores worry so much about what each other eats? Is a feeling of self superiority so important to them?

    Friggin' food zealots.

    genetics.
    Since we're in Foo and not in the nutrition forum, I want to hijack this thread into talking about Prince Fielder. I'm a Brewers fan so I hope we make a competitive offer that will at least make him consider staying. I'm guessing he'll go elsewhere though, probably ending up as DH with an occasional spot start at first base for an AL team. He'll probably sign something like a 9 year $200 million contract.

    Exactly. I've changed the type of food I eat several times over the last few years. Dietary experimentation!

    Gorillas are not vegetarians... although their primary source of food is plant based they also eat a lot of bugs, especially protein rich termites.

    True herbivores are adapted to digest and extract protiens exclusively from their plant based diets.

    Eat what you want but....

    What bugs me is:
    a) Lame anti vegetarian jokes
    b) Lame meat eater jokes
    c) The uninformed who call themselves carnivores. Cats are obligate carnivores. Dogs are omnivores. Humans are omnivores.

    Yep, this is why my dogs will eat anything I will. My cat, not so much.

    1 word says it all as to why I will never be a vegetarian.

    BACON!

    Bacon is the one meat item I miss. Though not enough to put up with my lovely digestive issues.

    I wish people wouldnt blame it on "genetics", no, YOU have the power to control how your body looks, just depends on how determined you are.

    Wow 200mil for hitting a ball? Amazing. Obviously too much money in base ball. I gave it up a long time ago. But I have to admit, that guys got one hell of a baseball star players name

    Beef has more than one stomach and can regurgitate food as cud to effect proper digestion. Decent beef, i.e. grassfed, eats stuff humans can't digest.

    Meat is also a more efficient way of getting necessary proteins, amino acids, minerals, and vitamins. B-12 anyone?

    In most parts of the world, a vegan diet is hugely unkind to the environment and nearly impossible at a locally sourced level--vegetarian is a better choice, or a mainly vegetarian diet with occasional small portions of meat. In some parts of the world, even a vegetarian diet won't work without severely disrupting traditional culture.

    Then there's those vegetarians who eat fish. "...It's OK to eat fish, 'cause they do not have any feelings..." If they can make a fish exception, maybe I'll consider a bacon exception.

    Currently eating a vegetarian diet, have been for the past three years. In that time, I accidently ingested bacon once as part of another dish, had one rare sirloin strip steak at a steak house, still trim up our family's traditional Christmas roast beef tenderloin. At a recent show we did in Allston MA, we used a cow head as a prop, attacking it with an axe during the finale.

    Very much enjoying every aspect of our vegetarian diet with the exception of bacon and steaks. I miss them, sure, but the health payoff is pretty dramatic -- vegetarian diet and cutting out most alcohol, I dropped 20 lbs pretty much instantly. I feel better and poop more regularly. I've developed some pretty tasty and creative recipes, tried others I might not have otherwise.

    Eat what you want; be aware that what you put in your body has big health consequences and adjust your diet accordingly. You can eat meat and still maintain a healthy, moral, and ethical diet; you can eat vegetarian and still be causing greater harm to yourself and the world than an aware, non-vegetarian diet.
    I know next to nothing. I am frequently wrong.
