  • Hi

    Hi everyone, I am new to this way of life and thinking about trying it. I have been a vegetarian for about 8 years and thinking about trying to eat Primal/Paleo with lots of eggs and no meat. Giving up legumes will be the hardest for me, beans are so darn good, but I think the switch might be good for me as I am having a very difficult time losing weight and I keep having all these other random health issues creep up. So hopefully trying this diet will help me out health-wise. I know a lot of people will say you can't do this without eating meat, but is there honestly any essential nutrient that you get from meat that you can't get from eggs? I am just such an animal lover that the thought of eating one is just a no-go for me.

    I am excited to learn a lot here!

    Welcome.

    A good piece of meat is about more than just nutrients to me. It is satisfying and satiating!

    I love animals too, but that doesn't stop me from eating them. I just choose to eat the ones that had happy, fulfilling lives before they assumed their position in the circle of life.

    There are no cheat days. There are days when you eat primal and days you don't. As soon as you label a day a cheat day, you're on a diet. Don't be on a diet. ~~ Fernaldo

      Thanks for the welcome.

      I think I am weird because I don't even like meat, which is how I began my transition to becoming vegetarian. I would much rather eat a bean burrito than a steak - yuck!
