Does anybody here on a VLC or ZC diet sometimes feel unclean, for lack of a better word, eating so much meat? I consider the animals I eat to be holy (again, for lack of a better word), and feel more of a connection with them than with plant... (more)

I was curious of studies and experiences of people having pets, and if it influences their health or not? Do pets help mood and energy? Any negatives to owning a pet healthwise (other than allergies)?

This is my dog Dom. He's the most effective anti-depressant, workout incentive, vacuum cleaner, alarm system, foot warmer and friend that's on the market these days ;) Yes, my dog makes me healthier. Any downside (cost maybe?) is so greatly... (more)

I always see on here the scientific reasons for eating better quality meat, no hormones/antibiotics, omega-3 balance, etc but no one ever talks about the animal being more than a food source. For me, the health reasons are secondary and more of a... (more)
