If you happened to spend time on these boards ANYWHERE besides your own private little thread, you might have noticed that rabid_child is one of the nicest people around these parts!



She was being straightforward, there's nothing wrong with that - it was honest. Too bad YOU can't handle it.



Oh, and evidently it went straight over your head that plenty of people answered your little thread in a much "snarkier" tone.



I wasn't going to say anything, I just laughed... and then chuckled to myself about joining a vegetarian board as an omni and then calling one of the moderators mean (especially when I wasn't being mean). Not a good way to stay off the radar.

The best way to cut down on your meat consumption is to only eat meat a few times a week and see how you like it. Eating 40% of your diet in meat may be cutting back for you but that is still way too much protein in your diet.

I don't know how people say there's no such thing as a semi-vegetarian. Of course there is. It's even picking up in popularity.

I think there's some other threads around here about that but what it boils down to is that 'flexitarians' and 'semi-vegetarians' (and vegetarians to some degree) corrupt the meaning of the word and make it difficult for those of us who actually are veg*an. Many of us are still fighting the impression that veg*anism is a 'flexible' diet where trace ingredients are okay and asking someone to pick out the meat in a dish is acceptable.



I'm not trying to be anything but realistic, I wish I could apply 'semi' to myself with the same effect as some do to diet. I am a semi-millionaire who semi-lives in a villa on the Mediterranean. Someone who cuts down on meat might be considered a semi-carnivore, but not a vegetarian.

They would also say there's no such thing as a fish-eating vegetarian, despite the fact that using such a concept is fairly popular.

I am a semi-non-smoker, because I only smoke about four or five cigarettes a day, as compared to the pack-a-day smokers.

Well 60 /40 is a good start you can understand the "new " recipes and maybe a few untried ingredients you seem well read so you will get to understand the protein carbohydrate intake .



See there have been good ideas books etc and there is also our recipe section . Who knows in time you might go 81/19 ...wish you well

I am a potential first round draft pick of the Minnesota Timberwolves.



Who's gonna blow me out of the water by pointing out that I am too old, too slow, too fat, too short, and who will rush to my defense because I still have the potential to be in the NBA draft because I have not yet declared my eligibility.



What's the TOS say about semis?

JC's narkiness level was on the right side of the scale, but he was also truthful.

Jeezy is known for his narky offensive side.



But yes, at least now the OP won't change his mind and consider vegetarianism, I'm sure we've made certain of that by giving him such an unwarm semiwelcome.

Because you saw me posting in it, and you wanted to read whatever I said to feel a combination of enlightenment, awe, horror, sadness and mystery. To feel like you were being born anew, like you were touched from the skies, like summer rain made somersaults on your face, like you were bathing in the rays of the morning sun, looking at the large field in front of you, smelling the fresh air of new spring, feeling that the whole world is open to you.

You know.... if I were to describe the perfect vacation, that would be it. A full mind erasure would be in order too.

No it's just a side personality I have that came to be after I accidentally took hair-growing medicine up my nose and hair started growing not on my head but in the inside of my brain.

People on this board can be really touchy when it comes to how you define yourself.

"I want to eat less meat" would have been a better way to phrase it.



Eating vegetarian is so easy, honest. I would advise having only some meat days if you find it hard start with roughly even amount of days of being vegetarian and non-vegetarian and then if you want to slowly move it towards vegetarian.



From my experince, if you give up meat for a week, you'll miss it, give itu p a month and you'll stay vegetarian!

You're not a "semi vegetarian"



60% veg, 40% meat = you're just following the avarega American diet. The fact that you might eat a few vegatables doesn't make you a vegetarian any more than that I eat 5% raw veg makes me a raw vegan, etc.



Ps: I don't care what you eat. Your choice. But don't kid yourself that yo're a veggie.
