Lately I have been doing some improvements with respect my diet in terms of dismissing eventually unhealthy food, such as junk food and candies. I rather hang on to the belief of keeping an objectively healthier and more self-aware lifestyle with a balance of all the nutrients according to my body's needs provided I can afford them, certainly focusing on the most beneficial ones for the sake of my nourishment.
Truthfully speaking I regard it more logical than following an ideological trend of a lifestyle that revolves around to utter subjective morals.

First question is: 'am I vegan or vegetarian'. And my answer is:I am neither the first nor the second. And the reason of that is not because I don't want to be vegan or vegetarian but because It's quite difficult not to eat meat and fish. And it's even getting harder when no members of your family want to stick to the diet. But I anyway had this experience of being vegetarian. And I did it this summer(for one week). At first it was quite difficult not to eat meat at all. But day by day I felt better. So, speaking shortly, by the end of that week I felt much better. I mean, it's hard to describe this feeling when you just feel like you aren't hungry anymore after a plate of salad. And you don't have a head ache and any other sicknesses.
I'd say that I agree with all the speaker's points of view.

I am not a vegan or vegetarien. I eat meat, fish, milk products and egg. I just don't like cheese and i never eat cheese. I like my diet and i think i get all the proteins that i need. Sometimes i feel sorry for animals because treatments that they faced are inhumane and unacceptable. But in my oppinion, not eating animal products is not a logical solution but reasonable and humane measurements can be applied in order to eliminate such inhumane treatments.

Well, I'm not really a vegetarian. But I have vegetable for lunch three times a month. My diet is really yummy I love it but sometimes I feel boring so I have to chang e my diet. Before changing, I don't think what to have I just go to the market and buy. In my opinion, I agree with Speaker 5 the most because she said the reality I saw there was 2 man who kill pigs, they hit them with whip and it was very very terrible.
