I'm not eating less meat as in less often- but smaller portions and leaner meat. I have been hunting and fishing so the meat I do consume is better quality.

I will have meat 2 or 3 times a month. Hubby and the kids are down to 4 or 5 days a week. Youngest daughter maybe 2-3 times a week.

No, I eat a lot more meat, though I still do not consume red meat.

Carbs are what kill me--meat is great for me nutritionally. Sadly, I do not like it very much.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

I only eat a little chicken and fish every week, otherwise I try to avoid meat as much as possible.

Once I started to change my diet, I noticed that I did start eating less meat. I still make sure that I do eat meat for protein and I notice that when I do eat meat, I make it at home.

Actually, I noticed I started doing this unintentionally when I started changing my diet. I decreased portions and increased my fruit and veggie intake (especially fruit). This by default decreased my intake of meat.

It has worked really well for me and I'm a type 2 diabetic with high blood pressure.

Yes, I'm eating much less meat then when I grew up. It's by choice, and digestion problems when too much meat is eaten.

I have always eaten meat. Now that I'm getting older - I am finding that I no longer can stand the smell or the taste of Ground Beef. :( I find myself eating more Lean Chicken and the occasional Steak.

I went from eating around 10-12 oz of animal protein a day to less that 7 and rarely red meat. I use meat to flavor my dishes and almost always supplement the dish with beans. Veggies take up the most room on my plate now
