Hi everyone! I can honestly say I have been dealing with a major contradiction in my lifestyle. I am a reasonably healthy person, I eat organic produce and purified water and avoid refined/whitsugar and flour... BUT I LOVE meat, esp. red meat, the rarer the better. I am beginning to feel I am one walking talking bovine hormone, and I hate it. I know about what is in the US's meat supply in terms of antibiotics, hormones, and otherthings I would never think to put into my body unless disguised as a steak, but I can't stop! I feel like an addict, and to make matters worse I am currently pregnant (due in 1 month!) I certainly am not happy to have exposed my child to such stuff when I tried so hard to remain healthy in every other respect. I also don't want my kids growing up into the insatiable carnivore that I have become. Has anyone else had this problem? How did you give up meat? I even cry when one of my goldfish dies but I eat cow? It makes no sense? Please share your own stories and words of encouragment with this reforming meat-eater! Help!
