I am trying to cut back on my meat consumption.So far i am quite successful and still loving it. I am eating fish cooked with miso. I have read that miso is a very health food like it can be good to our heart and an anti cancer. even my cats are loving it. i will give them rice with miso soup with some vegetables and they will eat even the vegetables. really awesome. So can you live with fish alone without meat if that will make you healthy.

I've lived without meat or dairy (all animal products, actually) for five years now. Of course you can. :) Humans are natural herbivores and therefore, the more meat you cut out of your diet, the less negative health effects you will have. Go for it. All meat has its negative effects, but at least fish isn't red meat, the most harmful of them all. Cutting back really shows you are thinking of your health. Good luck!

wow. hope that i can eat fist till my old age and will not get tired of it. i just try to cook it differently so i will not get tired of the taste. i am trying to research on different menus of fish. as long as it is cooked healthy i will try it. i am trying to discover different kinds of fish out there in the groceries. there is not much fish available here in my place. some are too expensive and so i settle to those kind that are good tasting and affordable.

I prefer to eat fish and vegetables than meat, but occasionally i eat fried meat. Red meat should be cut in our diet and fish is the alternative way to avoid it. I could live without meat.

The good thing about fish if you do eat it is that different types of fish can taste so different...I believe there's even a genetically engineered fish that does not have that "fishy" taste. If you aren't afraid of genetically engineered foods (haha), you could look for that as well. If there is not much fish available in your area, I know there are some places that let you go fishing and they'll prepare the fish you catch for you and you can either eat them there or take them home. I've been to a place like that...and even though that was the last time I personally ate fish because I had seen it alive and well, some people aren't bothered! :)

Hi hot summer. I am on the path of healthy lifestyle and started it last November 2008. I gradually cut meat in my diet, that is pork and beef. I started eating half cup of rice pair with vegetables and fish. When i crave for meat, i only choose chicken meat minus the skin of it, because the skin has lots of cholesterol in it. The diet really had a big impact on my health. My blood pressure went normal. And surprisely, my eye sight improves now. My skin glow and my hair is no longer dry. Its so amazing. I cut softdrinks too. I dont drink softdrinks every meal now. I am already satisfied with water. I can eat fish everyday, but i would like it better to have a balance. Ill eat fish and mix it with veggies. Happy mylotting and go healthy mylotters.!

oh i think i shuold cut out on softdrinks too. i wanted to have a glowing skin too. anyways, i rarely eat now in fast food. when i do i just order spaghetti though i has some meat in it, it is just so minimal. i will try to cut out on my rice intake as i do eat lots of rice everyday.

Yeah, i think i can do that. Like you, i want to cut back on my meat consumption. I just feel that at my age, i should minimize eating meat. Pork most especially. I don't want to die young of a heart attack. Fish is quite nutritious and it would be great if at least more than once or twice a week, i would eat it. There are lots of ways to cook fish so i guess i won't easily get tired of it.

well yes fish is very healthy food. before i only eat fist when it is cooked as fried fish. not i love eating it as boiled in soup. and i don't have problem any more eating eat every day. i don't fry fish any more. i like to grill fish also but that takes more time to do. so i think that cooking it in soup is better and less messy.

I like fish, because it is so much tasty and yummy, and many vitamins can we get on that and no harmful effects for the body, we can get protein carbohydrates and any vitamins that our body needs, this food is the option for meat.

I like fish, but I'm really picky about it. I really only care for white fishes (not salmon or tuna), and it needs to be really fresh. It was easier to get fresh fish when I lived in Michigan, because a lot of the fish was local from the Great Lakes. Fresh fish is harder to come by in Colorado. By the time it makes it to our grocery stores, it has been frozen for a few days at least. So I only care to eat fish occasionally. When I decide that it's time to cut back on mean, I go for alternatives like tofu, eggplant, beans, or lentils.
