Yerh , some find it not easy to give up or have trouble with strong urges or desires for meat in the begining.

What sort of meat subs are you using there are dishes in the recipe thread that can help with meaty tastes , are you a good cook .

Maybe you could look at meat as turtles meat , it might help , have you viewed any of the videos on VB .....

i'm not proud. i did it. after fighting the urge, yesterday after work i went in and ordered a cheeseburger. i stared at it for 10 minutes before i just couldn't take it anymore and i rammed it down in 4 or 5 bites. i didn't even think and it was so delicious. i actually bought another and binged it immediately. this was my first meat in months and i felt awful and still do. i also experienced massive cramping and debilitating diarrheas later that night and the next morning. i think my body had become unaccustom to meats. i feel like i'm a binge eater now... like i have an eating disorder. i'm sneaking behind my gf's back (she's veggie) to sneak burgers at the greasy little diner next to my apt. I've had one other burger since my relapse. i really don't know what to do to get back on track... i feel like such a murderer... blood is on my hands.

I think you just need some really good tasting meat alternatives. That usually satisfies me. Make a really fatty deep fried vegetarian chicken patty or something similar and turn it into an awesome sandwich. It'll likely help keep you on track, you're likely just craving greasy fatty goodness. Good luck!

So why are you trying to go veggie? Is it more because of your girlfriend or more because of the ethical implications of meat-eating? You've had some great advice already in this thread. I'll just add that it helps a lot to have one's reasons sorted out. Maybe some of those videos can help you with that.



Boston is an excellent city for vegetarians / vegans, btw. Good luck!

I no longer post here after VB was sold in 2012. (See my profile page for details.)
