I do not understand.....
Perhaps these extreme vegans that are getting the press are like the new aged Christians or hmmm dare I say Islamic extremist.... Am told its not the
total %aged of the population....
I had a lady friend who taught me a lot after the end of my service. In some respects I am who I am today cause of the lessons learned. After 2
years of a 4 year intense relationship she announced that she has become a meat eater over the last two years because of me.... if I loved her as I
had claimed then I would give up meat for a year. I did so, at the end of the 365 days that beautiful hunk of steak at Phil Lehr’s Greenhouse
Restaurant - (1980), where as you enter into what looks like a butchers shop, was beyond perfection. Pick the cut of meat and tell the meat cutter
how many ozs, he slices then weights the slab and every time I was lucky to be there it was perfect weight as ordered. On the way back to the Golden
Gate Bridge I stopped off at Jack's and picked up a hamburger. Meat never tasted so good. Living in those days in Marin many people were veggies or
vegans and never once came across a person extreme. But then that was polite company!
18 months ago my ex-wife who had serious cancer 3 years earlier, 21 lymph glans removed, total breast removal (3 Ops) and after 3 years on tablets
that remove female hormones she asked me to leave. Said I was young enough to meet someone new. hmmm 30 years of marriage and I still cannot get
used to being alone or concerned how she is! Never-the-less, high blood pressure (no meds boarder line) Diabetes (was taking tablets for 3 years) and
high Cholesterol (short of taking meds for) and need I say it a weight problem that was sort of hidden... to me... 6'1" and 31" legs, tall body.....
For a year I was almost a vegan. No milk, no meat except for tuna 2 times a week on my salad (now glow in dark).... Also taking hmmm alternative
solution.... 1 year lost 40 Kilos in weight, normal Cholesterol, Blood pressure lowest in 18 years and stop taking Diabetes meds last Thanksgiving.
Since then had 2 blood test - blood sugar is well within guidelines. I have not told quack I stop taking meds cause they would not understand...
Wonderful, some could make the case, loose a marriage and lol get better, nonsense! In July I am back to eating meat everyday and gaining a bit of
weight back however even though trousers I purchase in 1999 (stop wearing in 6 months of purchase) fit well after the year are now tightening up
around the waist. What is nice to report my rings that I have not been able to fit into for 12 years still fit. This is a wake up call to perhaps
drop back on the meat for a few days of the week. I like wearing my new old clothes.... Since I have chronic pain exercise is not an option....
Disabled American VN era Vet.... I am also an outstanding cook albeit hate to cook for myself but after a year lately been spoiling myself
I do love my meat and bacon is best.... If meat is murder then murder is delicious! I have met a few extreme women in my time and have a knack for
setting them off in the past.... I am, however, grateful of never having been attacked for meat.
Conclusion.... hmmm well the best way I can figure it is these off the wall extremest are either being paid as suggested in another post OR they
could be meat lovers too but decided to quit for who cares what the reason was.... point is they miss it... and walking into a restaurant where meat
vapors are like perfume in the air, reminds them what they are not enjoying and thus an internal war strikes out. The fall out as it sounds in this
thread can be lethal..... well perhaps not, but, may dampens the mood of what someone is consuming!
Enjoy BACON its why the PiGs exist!!!!!!
