How weird. My craving for the first year of veggieness was McD's little original cheeseburger, it drove me nuts.

when i first went vegetarian i really wanted a whopper - then i got a veggie whopper (this was before they had actual veggie burgers, it was just the vegetables and sauce on a bun) and it totally satisfied the craving.

Same here. Only in my case I still miss the original whopper

As a vegetarian - nothing. As a vegan - cheese!

What Xpat said...I used to miss cheese but since I've been eating a mostly raw vegan diet these past several months, there is nothing I miss! I can't think of anything I crave...shoot, I even found a vegan spray-whipped cream!

I'm not 100% vegetarian, but mostly. Has anyone else like me noticed that if you occasionally give in to a craving because you missed a particular food, you get physically sick from eating something that your body isn't accustomed to eating any longer?

About five years into a vegetarian diet I ate some turkey at Thanksgiving to please my dear aunt. But by the next day I was feeling really rotten. Not like in pain but just really feeling bad. I felt terrible for about three days, it was like my whole metabolism had shut down. At my next physical, I told the Doc about this and she said that yes, the incident was natural and to be expected. For the reason that Topaz stated.

If I eat meat unknowingly now, like in a pizza sauce, or once in an omelet, I get a small but intense indigestion like feeling. Small but sharp. Doesn't last too long though.

I remember when finally committing to a full vegetarian diet (I had drifted into it for a couple of years) I was worried about what I was going to eat, but found that just like the body changes regarding meat, that vegetables became more and more appealing and tasty. Once again, the body adapts. Never at a loss, I love all kinds of fruits, vegetables and grains

if i accidentally eat something with dairy or eggs in it, i definitely get a bit sick. especially uncultured milk and eggs. cheese and yogurt aren't as bad.

i haven't eaten anything with meat (besides some potato chips fried in lard and a few things with meat broth, all accidental, which didn't make me sick) since i cheated and ate a piece of bacon maybe a year or less into going vegetarian.

I still order the veggie whopper, even though BK has an actual veggie burger now. The lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles and sauce on a fresh bun make a really good sandwich.

Several years ago I ate a little cod at a restaurant for the benefit of the friend I had traveled to another state to visit. It was that restaurant's specialty, and I thought eating cod just once wouldn't hurt. Several hours later on my long drive home I had to stop several times because I was vomiting, breaking out in a cold sweat and totally miserable.
