Any veggie diet can be altered to include meat. After that, it just won't be a veggie diet but an omni diet.

so, even though the text under your avatar (User Title) says "why do people eat meat?", you want to join them eating meat? =/<br><br><br><br>
if you do eat meat, don't call yourself a vegetarian <i>please.</i> we have it hard enough as it is. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I guess if you want a title to go with your partially meat-eating habits... semi-veg may work. Pescatarian (sp?) would be if you ate only seafood products (not chicken/pork/beef)...

if it's about the title, how about un-veg, or vegish?<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

A vegetarian who eats meat is a semantic contradition. You can no more be a vegatarian who eats meat than you can be a celebate who only has sex on sundays, an tee-totaler who only drinks expensive wine, etc. Vegetarianism is neccessarily an absence (A) of something (dead animals)* - the presence of positive attitudes ("I love veggies") is an acceptable, but not a sufficient, condition of being vegetarian (B).<br><br><br><br>
In other words, B alone is not enough to make you a vegetarian. Without A, you're just another animal-loving.... hypocrite.<br><br><br><br>
You can't have your cake and eat it, as they say.<br><br><br><br>
If you're looking for people to say that you can eat 'some sort' of dead animal and still consider yourself a veggie, I'm afraid you're probably not going to get much support from people who take vegetarianism seriously. If you are going to eat animals, fine. Lots of people do. But don't call yourself a vegetarian.<br><br><br><br>
You cannot be a vevgetarian and eat animals. Semantically, you cease to be a vegetarian when you eat meat: the two states cannot coexist.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
*To say that veggism is an 'absence' is not to say that it is bland. It's a semantic point. Vegetarianism is for lots, good eating, happy living etc. But these will always be secondary.

love it!!!!<br><br><br><br>
my answer is no. there's no way you can be a vegetarian and eat any meat.<br><br>
you sound like you want to make some some of change in your diet/lifestyle, which is good for you. if you want to cut down how much meat you eat or make sure that your meat comes from 'more ethical sources' then i think that's great.<br><br>
every little helps, as they say, but you would not be a vegetarian.<br><br><br><br>
maybe a gentle ease into vegetariansim is the way for you!<br><br><br><br>
good luck with it!!
