I am a meat eater, on average i eat meat 3-4 times a week so i decided that i was going to try a meat free diet for 2 weeks and see how i feel....

After 2 Weeks i can say i fee fairly good, i do however find it harder then i thought to stay away from meat. Though after painfully doing so for 9 days, i can say i have lost 3 pounds. Before starting i thought maybe i would lose 1-3, so losing 3 is a big surprise to me....I will not go more then 2.5 weeks....Why? Because 1. I believe meat is essential in maintaining a healthy life (but do think most do it to excess me including) 2.Nothing tastier then a Tbone Steak 3. I am having Christmas at my house and i am cooking and it is going to be very hard to stay away from a Ham and Turkey that i will be cooking

I will keep you guys up to date on my weight loss and my overall feeling.....

I just cut out all beef a long time ago and I've felt so much better ever since...I just stick to chicken or fish.

If you suddenly feel the need to attend a Liza Minelli or Bette Midler show you might try pounding down a couple of those little White Castle burgers just until the urge subsides...

I actually have been doing the opposite. I gave up all sugar an flour products. I eat meat (grassfed), veggies, nuts, some fruit. Lost 8 lbs in about a month and didn't do any real workouts. I'm not overweight, but had been reading about Paleo/Primal eating at gave it a try.

I always wanted to try to give up meat for like a week but have never actually committed to it. Maybe one day I will stop being such a sissy...

I think you're the first person I have ever heard speak not to fondly of chicken. I thought everyone loved chicken.

BOL with the change in diet.
