One year, beef-free

It's hard for me to really believe, but I haven't had even a bite of beef or other red meat in a year.

I wish I would have had my cholesterol checked prior to dropping it from my diet, just because I'm curious. It started out not as a deliberate choice, it just kind of happened. Then I just kind of stopped eating it. My reasons were mostly because I just didn't feel good eating a lot of it, but also because it's not exactly the most efficient food source in the world either.

So in the very short term, I felt better not eating it, even before I started to lose weight.

I still have cravings, for Arby's of all things, and burgers at TGI Friday's.

Horray for you! That's a HUGE thing.

Congrats. I've been cow-beef-free for almost 10 years now (although I occasionally indulge in a free-range bison burger ever since I abandoned my vegetarianism).
