2. How can I give up meat fully?
1. Don't eat it.
2. Watch the video on MeetYourMeat.com
3. Order the free veg starter kit at GoVeg.com or TryVeg.com for more information
I don't really know what else to say because I didn't have alot of problems cutting out meat (and meat was my fave food and 75% of my diet, so I don't see the problem)
3. Is it ok to eat meat every once in a long while?
Is it okay if I smack you upside the head only once in a long
Lol. Those that believe in animal rights, believe it ALWAYS applies, you can't just ignore it once and awhile when you feel like it. Those who are just veg for health - yes you can eat meat once and awhile, but then you are NOT vegetarian. It is a lie to call yourself vegetarian if you eat meat, no matter how often.
Hope I helped. I wish you well
