Trying to cut out meat??

So lately I’ve been trying to cut out meat. It’s extremely hard but I’m doing it for health reasons. I do still have maybe cheese on the side or slowly cutting the dairy. Is that considered meat still? Since it’s coming from a cow?

    The best way to cut out meat, is to make sure the animal is bled thoroughly by slicing the jugular and letting it blead out... Then you can cut out your meat and refrigerate/smoke it quickly to save it from spoiling.

    Cheese is not meat, it’s dairy.

    If you intent to cut out all animal products you need to read up on food combining or you will make yourself sick.

      Any well balanced diet is a natural mixing of foods. So there's actually no need to do so on a conscious level. As far as protein goes, there's a multitude of different types. In reality, it's not about protein, but more in the line of amino acids, required to create a specific type of protein.

    when u cut out meat, u then run the risk of low iron levels. Women need iron as we menstruate.

    That is considered a very poor diet

    cannot be from a cow as it comes from different areas in the supermarket. You really need an education before you comment in this site

    Oh dear.

    “Meat” is the flesh of an animal and no, cheese isn't considered “meat”, because it's not the flesh of an animal

    Maybe you should stay with some meat, the proteins in meat is how our brains developed so quickly during the evolutionary cycle. The fact that you don't know the definition of MEAT lends itself to your need for sustained meat proteins in your diet.

    In most cases dairy is not considered "meat" If you are going to not have meat you can still consume dairy.  Some will discontinue fish, others will eat fish but not other meat. Some will eat eggs but cut out all other "meat products" 

    It all depends on what you want to do and for what reason. 

    If you want to become Vegetarian start by cutting out meat as in the critters with 2 or 4 legs but have fish.  As you become comfortable with that you could cut out fish if you want to. but still consume eggs and dairy. 

    If you wish to go further you could become Vegan. Nothing that comes from an animal either to eat or use or wear. 

    It is all your comfort level, you are the one making choices for yourself.

    No, cheese is not considered meat but it is an animal product. As long as you have a balanced diet and do not eat products with a lot of preservatives or highly processed foods you should be fine.  As to cutting out meat and dairy are you doing that on the suggestion of your doctor or because of something you read?  While many studies claim that the vegan diet is healthier they all assume that the person on it is supplementing their diet appropriately.  If not then the vegan diet is quite unhealthy in the long run.
