i never knew how hard it would be to be a vegetarian until just the past of copule of week, when i started to eat less me, due to my painful wisdom teeth that is killing me, and i cant eat any meat, like chicken, pork, and beef. good things i can sell eat many of the seafood, and eggs and daily products, beside that, i cant eat anything hard or that can stuck to my teeth because it is painful to chew on. atleast now i know how hard it is for people who used to eat meat and try to become a vegetarian, it take a lot. what do you think?

for me, it is easy. because i dont' like to eat meat at all. but my parents think it is bad for my health, so i begin to eat pork, beef and mutton. but i must throw them up at first time. then i begin to eat them, but if no one force me to eat it, then i had never ate it actively. but my boyfriend like meat very much, so he feels very hard to be a vegetarian.

people shouldnt be force to do anything, specialy food, it is not bad for your health it is unblanced for you if you stop eating meat totally, but it doesnt mean you cant substiue stuff, like soy beans and some seafood you can eat instant of pork chicken or beef

I don't become a vegetarian because i loves meat and a meal without meat is like sleeping on cold concrete without mattress.

for me it won't be hard, since I tend to eat seafood and vegetables more than I eat meat. I don't mind eggs but it's not something I can't live without. Eating meat that is not tender usually hurts my teeth or gum so I definitely can live without it, but then again in winter I will think twice about not eating meat at all

It was not hard for me. In fact I can not stand meat smell, it smells relly bad. After so many years, I can not think to go back and eat meat.

Before, i decided to go on a diet and i decided to eat only fruits and veggies.. no meat. Whew, its really hard because when you are used to eating fish and meat.. it seems like i get starved fast! But well, eating veggies and fruits can be a healthy diet and really slims you down..

I totally agree with you. I like eating vegetables, however, I can't live without meats. I think balancing the diet is the best way for the health. So I am not going to be a vegetarian, especially I am very thin.

i'm sure it's really hard to overhaul one's diet especially if you've been use to it all your life. but it can be done, one must have the perseverance and discipline. it may be hard at the start but the moment you have have adjusted, it's smooth sailing i'm sure.

For a practicing vegetarian, it is not hard to be normal, by consuming soft foods. There are several liquid foods which are quite filly in vegetarian section. Thanks and have a nice time.

It is definitely hard to become a vegetarian when you are used to eating meat. Just think, I ask you to give up on even just ONE of the foods you really enjoying eating and crave for even, what more changing your entire diet? We all develop certain preferences as we grow up, and to completely overhaul that isn't easy, but it can be done. As long as you are willing to endure the cravings and not succumb to them.
