jeannieselby's Journal, 28 August 2017

Day 1 of 5 DAYS ON RDI, 2 DAYS ON 600-800 CALORIES Challenge.

FS RDI = 1800, Dr's RDI = 1600.

Today will be a "Fast Day" to start things off, so fingers crossed for an easy Monday, without any temptations. The meeting today will be filled with people eating dead mammals so that should help me a lot. I usually get quite nauseous from the smell whenever they do 5 Guys or any of the other "burger" places for lunch.

Thanks April761. I'm not vegan or vegetarian, but I do appreciate all you do to keep everyone motivated. I won't eat another mammal, so I guess you can call me a speciesist, if there is such a thing.

My friend I read about speciesism, now I am more confused (lol). I love all animals (on and beneath earth, in the air, in the water but as human I have to eat meat, fish, fruits, vegetables (insects not yet) Thank you indeed for your kind words :-)

April761 I can see where my use of the term "speciesist" can come into confusion. "'Speciesism' is the idea that being human is a good enough reason for human animals to have greater moral rights than non-human animals. ...a prejudice or bias in favour of the interests of members of one's own species and against those of members of other species. Peter Singer, Animal Liberation, 1975." My first understanding of what "veal" actually was, put me off eating it when I was only 10. Then my first witnessing of a pig being slaughtered a few years later did the same for me and pork. I tried being a vegetarian in 1988, but found it too difficult to maintain the relationship I was in at that time. So I became a pescatarian and that lasted until I moved to Sedona, AZ in '93 and had no resources for fresh and responsibly sourced seafood. There was a nearby farm that had free range and well treated fowl, and that's when I reincorporated poultry into my diet. So I don't fit any of the "ism" categories when I try to explain that I'm a mammal, and therefore won't eat other mammals. Basically if it gives birth then I'm not eating it. I believe the duckbilled platypus is one of the few egg laying mammals, but I won't be eating any of those either.

Yes I read all these on wiki and I thought that you are a good person, likes music and arts, you couldn't give more rights to us than animals. That's why I was confused. I am so glad now. My next post will be on eggs, fowl and fish. (dairy?) Well treated, this is good. I read that from beard to the tail, American Indian nations used every part of the bison. Because the bison provided many gifts—from tipis and clothing made from hides to soap from fat and tools made from bones—they were honored as relatives and paid tribute to through songs, dance and prayers. Thank you very much :-)
