If they plan on ever going back to eating meat, then I wouldn't consider them vegetarian. If you try eating meat after a year of not eating it, your stomach will likely have problems trying to digest it. I've heard of people getting sick trying to eat meat again.

What if someone went vegetarian for a year and then ate meat again? And true.

Most likely after a year you would be able to fairly easily. It takes years and years for the body to really start rejecting meat, though after a year it may give you a stomach ache and a good case of constipation.

People already answered your question. You asked it again, with more gibberish added to it, but it's the same question.
What exactly do you want to know? People can go back to eating meat whenever they want, that is up to them. Is that the way in which you're asking the question? If you mean physically, people answered your question already.

Who cares? It's obviously happened in the history of the world, mainly to people in earlier times who ate vegetarian diets regularly and only ate meat sparingly. Or to women who think they should if they're pregnant. Or to people who are vegetarian who have a low moment for some reason. People have pretty much told you that it might cause mild digestion issues.

How old are you? I'm curious because you keep insisting you aren't a troll, you seem mystified by vegetarianism, like removing meat is something outrageous that you're terrified of doing, when plenty of people live their entire lives as vegetarians. There are entire cultures which are vegetarian. You could find out a lot of this stuff by simply Googling it.

I see no reason why somebody should eat dead animals.

My usual answer: I have never heard a convincing reason to eat meat.

I can't imagine why anyone would want to go back to eating animals when they see how awesome it is to be vegetarian.

Yeah.....a stomach full of dead, rotting flesh, from an innocent animal......

Or a tummy full of veggies, and no animals were harmed in the making of the meal.

Hmmmmm..... that's a tough one.

(Insert sarcasm here.....)

All animals should be respected & should have the ability to lead a natural & enjoyable life. This means not eating them, or abusing them in any way.

If I spend this year vegetarian - I can say in the future I spent x year as a vegetarian.

but what's the point of that, especially if theres no principle behind it ? just to be able to say it as part of a conversation piece? seems fairly shallow

Sure, you can say you were vegetarian for year x if you don't eat meat (that includes fish) for year x. You really should get a hardcopy of the rulebook so you don't have to keep asking these annoying questions.
