I have been evolving into a flexiterian for years. I was raised on a ranch and ate meat 3+ times per day. Sometime having two steaks at a sitting. I was a growing country boy and needed all that protein to do the work I did. I just don't think a vegan can eat enough substitutes to sustain that kind of life as well as a carnivore can.
Since I left the ranch, I began to cut back some, mostly due to cost, but continued loving MEAT.
As we were raising out kids, we brought in more and more veggies and started eating smaller portions of meat. Plus we started eating more chicken and fish and less red meat.
Once I started this program in Jan. I accepted the veggie extreme and have learned to love them and work with them more. I even buy and eat more and more vegan foods. So being a vegan is a good way to lose weight. LOL
Now that I have reached my weight goal and am going back into putting on more muscle mass, I am eating a bit more meat, but again, finding that lean chicken breast meat and fish is still a better choice than most red meats. I still like and will eat red meats, but I keep them to smaller portions and less often. So I think Flexiterian is a good name for where I am and where I plan to be the rest of my life.
I question, therefore I think; I think, therefore I am; ........ I think?

We can always find reasons to quit or not do what is needed to maintain a healthy and fit lifestyle. The trick is to fight this tendency. NOW SHUT UP AND SWEAT.
