    I take vegetarian claims with a grain of salt. I've personally experienced my grandma claiming this for years. In her own head, she's vegetarian or a pescatarian. In reality, she will savor a nice chunk of red meat if you put it front of her.

    You're missing the point. Those are pleasures.

    Not universally true. I take great pleasure in flossing until my gums bleed, many don't agree there's pleasure in that.

    Has there been a movement created or general lifestyle choice defined in which people give up bloody flossing for moral reasons?

    Some vegetarians may *claim* they don't like meat, but that's B.S. in my opinion. They morally chose for one reason or another to not eat the meat, and then their brain adapted to this decision by telling the conscious "good job, I don't like it anyway". The mind has a funny way of producing happiness almost out of thin air.

    You forgot Adolf Hitler on that excellent list Yogabare! Hmmm, does vegetarianism make morally better humans? I am not too sure about that...

    I do think some people might live in denial until they convince themselves otherwise. This happens in all areas, Paleo as well. "Spaghetti is disgusting now, I can't believe I ever liked it!" I even see symptoms of Stockholm syndrome in many people who sound like they're still trying to convince themselves what they say is true; they demonize their former inclusion and have seemingly undying devotion to the alternative. Maybe this is a coping mechanism on a subconscious level, but we've all heard similar stories from someone who quits something. I quit smoking 7 years ago and I do find the scent rather repulsive now, but I still remember the pleasurable sensation and know that I'd still be smoking if the risks didn't outweigh the pleasures for me.

    If vegetarians didn't miss meat, there wouldn't be such a great selection of veggie cheeses, veggie burgers, tofurkey, and the like. I haven't yet seen anything like, "tastes like tofu but made with real meat."

    That said, I miss bread. I love bread - good bread, not the fluffy white crap on most supermarket aisles. Pre-primal, I figured, if it tasted good, it would taste better between two slices of bread. I absolutely love subs, heroes, po'boys, or whatever the regional name for them is. Pastrami without rye? Lox without a bagel? Brie and paté without a sourdough baguette? A burger without an English muffin? Absurd. Now I indulge occasionally, but the longer I remain primal, the less often I indulge. I still don't know what to do with pastrami, except that it tastes great next to fried eggs.
