Ditto this, and I was a pescetarian for 7 years. I had lamb stew. It was delicious.

You should have a few of these after your body gets reacclimated to meat.

Start slow, for sure. Did you used to eat eggs?

Welcome back to the land of bacon paradise.

I've been a vegetarian for the last 20 years, although when I started working out I re-incorporated fish. I'm not a militant vegetarian, though, and if there's a buffet where all the food is about to get thrown out anyway, I'll eat what's there. I've been considering adding chicken/turkey cold cuts to my diet.

Stuff like steak I never really missed, though.

My sister was veg for 12 years and when she went off she ate a bacon cheeseburger. No problems. She also lost weight and gained energy when she started eating meat again.

Be sure to reacclimate yourself slowly. I did three years of vegetarianism in high school, and when I returned to my carnivorous ways, I ate a greasy cheeseburger to celebrate. Explosive diarrhea followed quickly thereafter.

Watch out!

congratulations. by buying meat from ethical producers you can have a far greater impact on animal welfare than by not eating meat at all

Congrats OP. Turning dietary restrictions into an identity always seemed to me a poor way of looking at the logic of the choice. You can cut your meat consumption in half and still have an effect ethically or dietary, even though such a thing isn't technically vegetarian.

What I miss most are probably backyard-BBQ burgers. If I decide to give up vegetarianism, that would be the meal I'd choose. Like tagut though, I'll eat meat on rare occasions where it would otherwise be wasted.

I don't mean to hijack the thread but care to elaborate? Even animals raised in humane conditions end up slaughtered.

Welcome home.
Had a female cousin who was a roadie for some rock group. Went vegan and "better than thou" for a few years. Then she went to India to find her true spirituality. Came back 6 months later, tucked into some Big Macs and got her MBA...
Meanwhile, I'm in India jonesing for steak that isn't water buffalo (though WB is good gravy too).

FYI:
Beef= water buffalo
Mutton= goat

but I digress.

dont want to turn this into a debate but my argument goes along the lines of vegetarians are largely concerned with the conditions farm animals are raised in but by not eating meat they reduce demand on ethically raised animals.. the fact that animals are slaughtered for our food is an unavoidable truth of being an omnivore but at least we can ensure they have good natural healthy lives while they are alive.
