Do you avoid all animal products in your diet, or just those that involve slaughter?

I'm not vegan at the moment for the same reasons you listed for not being vegetarian. I tried it, but didn't have the cooking skills or discipline to properly plan my meals. I do try to keep animal products to a minimum, but still have room for improvement, particularly when it comes to dairy products. I do eventually want to become vegan, but I'm not there yet. This debate is a good reminder that I need to make more of an effort towards that transition.

What is the primary reason you choose an omnivorous diet over a meat-free one?

I think it is the amount of eating required to satisfy my appetite and keep from losing weight coupled with an intense craving for meat if I go without.

When trying a vegetarian diet, did you replace meat with other foods that had similar nutrients and calories?

Did you switch to a vegetarian diet all at once, or make the change gradually, giving your body and mind time to adjust?

Do you think it's possible to maintain a healthy weight on a vegetarian diet with proper meal planning?

When I switched to a vegetarian diet, I craved meat too, because I was so used to it, but after about 6 months that craving went away.
