I'm definitely not one of those people that doesn't eat meat because the treatment of animals. I really don't care a whole lot how a a chicken is treated if it was put on earth for me as food.
I do not care if a cow has its feelings hurt.
However I decided to see if I could go a week without eating meat. It all started when a friend of Mine (Drew) met me at a new BBQ restaurant for lunch. in the following 7 days I ate at that restaurant another 4 times.
They only serve sandwiches and they are delicious but its a lot of meat. I ate one that consisted of sausage wrapped in ham then that was wrapped in bacon. It was huge.
So I decided to lay off meat for a week. The plan was to not stat until tomorrow but Since I had went all day Thursday without meat I figured I'd start then and continue for a week starting tomorrow as well with Lin.
Friday to Sat overnight I slept better than i have since I was a kid. I woke up refreshed and feeling great. Sat to Sun was the same way and everyday since.
I don't know if this is in correlation to the fact that I haven't had any meat for 6 days or not but I don't even want meat right now.
I'm not a tree hugging hippie, and Im certainly not an animal rights activist but if this treand of amazing sleep persists then I am off meat for good. Which I don't think would be hard.
Hardest part will be getting my family to not be weirded out by it. i don't care at all if they eat meat or not, its not about that for me. For now its just a test of will and a great nights sleep.
