Because we like meat and have been eating it all our lives. But as we got older we got fatter and couldn't get it off. We also started watching a lot of documentaries and became convinced that the food conglomerates were slowly poisoning us.
We were also shocked to discover that animal cruelty laws do not apply to food animals and that the CAFO's (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation) regularly abuse the animals they slaughter.
After months of research we made the decision to give up meat and have never felt better in our lives.
We have lost a lot of weight and have never felt hungry eating a plant based diet.
