Oh I totally understand that - that's why I said good for you for making healthy choices. I was just speaking from my own experience of years of being the most unhealthy vegetarian.

I didn't mean to imply vegetarian is healthier. I just said it helps me avoid some bad choices.

Sometimes people think that a vegetarian diet is automatically healthier, but that's not always the case. I'm glad that you're making healthy choices though! Just make sure you're getting in enough protein throughout the day.

It's worth a try, it never resulted in weight loss for me, my body demanded more real protein, and tofu and beans and protein drinks didn't cut it, made me ill, feel much better eating regular stuff. Felt "empty" most of the time.

I already don't eat meat at breakfast time, but now I do only vegetarian lunches too.. I feel like it forces me to eat healthier. I can't have a cheeseburger or a greasy chicken sandwich... so I go for salads, tofu stir fries, etc. :)

I still eat meat, but mostly chicken or shellfish, at dinner only.

I'm proud of myself !
