Sudden Aversion to Meat

Hi.

Two weeks ago I decided to cut down on meat. I was eating it every day and using it as a filler in meals, so I wanted to eat less but better quality meat. However, after a week of this, I woke up one day and the thought of meat makes me feel very sick. Today I ate an egg mayo sandwich, finished it, but for about an hour after I thought I was going to throw up.

I'm male, so probably not pregnant...

Anyone had an experience like this?

About a year ago I had some "mushroom" lasagna at a buffet.....that turned out to be meat. I "re-gifted" it in the parking lot.

My veg*n daughter tried meat recently....just to see what would happen. She felt bad all night, did not sleep well....and was "irregular" the next day.

Meat has so many chemicals, antibiotics, growth hormones, etc. in it.....no wonder people feel like crap when they eat it......not to mention the adverse heath effects.

I'm living on the edge when I buy fake lunch meat & fake mayo & make a sandwich.

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.

What else has been going on in your life? I mean, have you been reading up on animal rights, for example? Have you been spending time with a friend or loved one who has chosen a compassionate (vegan/vegetarian) lifestyle because they love animals? Have you watched any undercover videos of factory farms or slaughterhouses?

It sounds like SOMETHING has triggered your sudden revulsion to meat--and that's a VERY GOOD THING! Now that you already don't want it, it's a great time to dump it for good. Welcome to the wonderful world of being kind to animals!

Hi. Thanks for the replies.

Silva, I wasn't trying to give up, just cut down. Guess, at least for the time being, I won't be eating any.

As for what's happening in my life, nothing as far as I'm aware. No programmes watched, no change in attitude towards the rearing and slaughtering of animals; I still think of them as food. I just can't eat meat, and maybe egg, not sure after the last try lol.

Wonder if it'll fade.

So you come to a vegetarian forum to ask why you have a sudden aversion to meat? Interesting.

Veggieboards is for those who are vegetarian/vegan or interested in becoming so. Please read the rules.

Personally I don't know too many people who change their entire lifestyle because they have an aversion to meat, but maybe it happens?

I did post it in the Transitioning to vegetarian subsection. I thought that would be an ideal place to see other's experiences, especially if they're similar. And I am interested in becoming a vegetarian, it may be a forced interest, but still an interest.

Do you expect a cure here?

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

No. Like I wrote in the original post, I was wondering if anyone had a similar experience.

Yes. I haven't eaten meat for a few years and my meat aversion is getting worse. As it is becoming harder and harder for me to hold a conversation with people when I see them eating meat. In my first veg years, I would pick the olives on their pizzas and now it just looks/smells/feel so icky.
I guess all in all, this is better.

Congrats on becoming a vegetarian without the worry about using your willpower!
That's what happened to me, and at first I was freaked out, but now I am so glad, because I was then able to learn about what happens to animals, knowing that I was no longer contributing to the problem. Family and friends took it very well too, if I simply said 'No thanks to the meat. Lately, it has made me feel sick'. Easiest transition I could have asked for!

Getting physically sick from your egg sandwich could be another blessing in disguise, if you are interested in going a bit further

EDIT: I should also note that at first I had no interest in becoming vegetarian...I was happy the way things were at the time. But after learning more about it, I was glad that it happened and would never go back to change it.

I can say I'm having a nice variety of meals now! But that was one of the reasons for originally eating less meat too.

So I guess I'll just see how things go. But in 1 week I lost 1kg and 1% body fat, with only 1 hard exercise, so may have other benefits.
