This was a choice of preference rather than necessity; I believe that
you can get plenty of quality protein for any physical activity if you
eat soy products, dairy products, and eggs.

thought that sounded like a good idea. Once again, just being pragmatic,
not dogmatic, about this decision. And I think that's what's important. I
still need to lose weight. I need more protein. Nuts are not the answer.
Soy can help, but unless I start eating soy slices (like turkey slices)
that's not really the answer. I don't know.


do you want to be a vegetarian?

if yes, there are ways to get protein. simple one, buy a tub of whey
protein powder. have all the protein you want. eat cottage cheese.
ditto.

if no. eat turkey. eat chicken. eat fish. eat soylent green.

Trans-fats are in turkey? Cholesterol in turkey? Gosh.


What's so surprising about that? Of course there is cholesterol in
turkey, along with a lot of fats. I donno specifically about trans-fatty
acids, but I imagine there is some of that, too.

Turkey, that is, farm-raised turkey, is one of the least healthy things
you can eat. Most of those poor birds are juiced up with drugs and
hormones their entire lives. Then the darn meat is also juiced up with
"broth" (so that they sell what is basically water for the same price per
pound as the meat itself), "flavor-enhancing" chemicals, and additional
fat.

If you are going to eat turkey, at least get a free-range bird that is
minimally processed.

You can eat all the nasty meat you want. I'm taking a pass.


I try to avoid the nasty meat and just eat the yummy bits, like the
ribeye.

In looking at this list of suggested non-animal products (but you should
read up on how cheese is made before you decide that it is cruelty-free),
it's amazing how it hit all my food allergies.

tofu
soy milk


I break out in hives if I eat soy. RPITA

beans


OK, these I can eat. But not if I am going to captain the tandem.

cheese


allergic

nuts


allergic to peanuts

seeds
yogurt


More milk

veggies (like brussel sprouts and potatoes) eggs supplements (bars,
powders)


allergic to eggs.

My list of allergies (wheat, soy, peanuts, milk, eggs) is not uncommon in
the US. Especially soy, since we are so over-exposed to it. I can
tolerate small amounts of milk, eggs, and wheat, but peanuts and soy do me
in. So, I guess I am not a good candidate for a vegetarian diet, which is
OK, since I do like meat.
