Are You A Vegetarian?

I'm just curious as to how many members here at TLO practice vegetarianism as a personal means of helping to minimize suffering.


Just to be clear: I have absolutely no interest, whatsoever, in debating this topic. I've seen the subject mentioned briefly in various threads throughout the forums here, and I'm just curious as to the ratio of vegetarians to non-vegetarians here at TLO. Thanks in advance for indulging and satiating my inquisitiveness on this subject.

I chose other as I'm a vegan.

I'm a vegan also. I decided to use 'vegetarian' as an umbrella term for all plant-based (non-meat) diets, as Wikipedia lists veganism as a variety of vegetarianism. All the same, I probably should've specified. My apologies for the misunderstanding.

Vegetarian all my adult life, and as near-vegan as I can get.

I've been a vegetarian for over four years and a vegan for about two.

Re: Are You A Vegetarian?

I do enjoy lots of fruit and veggies, but I also enjoy eggs, bacon, sausage, and dairy products.

Re: Are You A Vegetarian?

Vegetarian for nearly a quarter-century. Like Sand, my vegetarianism is near-vegan, but admittedly not completely vegan.

Best,
Richard
