hello! i am just curious, what do you love to eat? is it fish, chicken, pork, or beef? If these four viands will be served on the table, what will you have first? why? does your choice concerns taste, health, or belief? i am a fish lover, its healthy and it taste good. my second choice is pork, next chicken..i dont eat beef. :-) hope you can share your stories and preferences regarding this. :-)

If these four dishes are put on the table at the same time, I think that I would taste beef first, followed by chicken, fish and pork. Of course, there is one important thing, that is, the way the chef cooks the dish is very important for me to choose which will be eaten first.

Fish first definitely, then beef, probably because they're so extremely different from eachother, then chicken , then pork.Fish seems healthiest, and I've always been a seafood addict.

I love fish too and pork. But since I am getting old i prefer to eat vegetables to avoid any cholesterol on beef meat etc. Fish is healthy too so I am trying to have it every week. And fruits. Maybe on Holiday i will try to eat chicken and beef again for some health reasons.

Waow waow..I'm so happy to say that we have so much in common. If this four dishes were to be served and if I"m too choose I would eat in order as you did. First I would go for Fish since I'm a fish lover and apart from that fishes have many health advantages as well. And second choice would be pork and third would be chicken. And like you I also don't eat beef.

Same with you, I'll definitely choose fish because its the healthiest alternative. Next would be beef because I think its not very fatty. I would have wanted chicken but there are lots of issues about the genuineness of the chicken. Although I do eat pork a lot, its not really my first choice. I guess pork would be the cheapest. So if price is involved and I'm in a tight budget, I'd go for pork.

very well said. the price of fish as of the moment (here in the Philippines) is more expensive than the price of chicken and pork. the good quality fish can cost 150-160 kilos or around $4 per kilo. :-)

The meat I use to like the most is chicken. But since i'm pregnant, I just like all the red meat. I really really want to eat beef everyday lol. I don,t really like fish. I eat Tuna in can in my sandwich or in a salad, but that mostly the only fish I eat every day.

I only eat fish and chicken...! NO red meat and no PORK. Mostly because of health reasons. Partly for reasons of being Vegan. to some sort of degree. I hate the idea of red meat because of the blood. I have no idea of why but since my mom passed away, I stopped eating red meat and pork. I do eat turkey though. It's strange why I started this but I will not eat red meat and haven't since 1994.

Beef is always my favorite. Although fish seems healthier, but I choose taste at first. My second favorite is deep fried or roasted chicken, then it's fish. Finally it is pork.

I love all four. But I specially love fish - specifically fried TUNA. It's always present in my meal except if I'm dining out where the menu doesn't have it. however, i don't like other kinds of fish specially if it is cooked whole - w/ heads, fins, etc. As for chicken - i prefer it buttered and fried...just like the ones in fast food stores. I also like chicken adobo. For pork - it is absolutely adobo! Beef - I like it with soup... I don't know what the dish is called...but its like beef tendered in boiling soup...

If it were up to me, I'd eat fish all the time. Any seafood is a friend of mine, but trout, flounder, catfish, talipia, I don't care, I love fish. Unfortunately, I don't get to eat much of it. My second favorite is beef, and that is probably what I've eaten the most over the course of my 26 years. I don't really like to eat a lot of beef, but since I'm anemic, my doctor encourages me to eat it often. My next favorite would be chicken, and then pork. I really don't care much for pork. I think I could give it up fairly easily. Sausage and bacon are so fatty, it would do a person's health good.

A variety of those would be good, as long as they are also fresh. The best thing is, we balance our daily dietary allowance, when we maintain this then I don't think there's gonna be a problem. Besides, too much of these will not help us achieve a healthy diet..

First i will have chicken dish only because due its low fat content and fibous food cultures etc. On taste purpose i will select fish to tastebuds satisfaction. Everyfood concerns about health only due to ready mix spicescontents.

For me it depends on how they are cooked. I love fish and chicken more than pork and beef but it also depends on whta kind of fish it is. There are fish that I don't like to eat because of it smell or texture. First I will eat chicken, fish, pork then beef.
