here, fishie fishie ...

So I did the low-carb thing this year, with some success. I lost just about 30 lbs, but couldn't maintain the diet and have gained back ten or so. (I haven't checked since the whole xmas baked goods onslaught, so that "or so" could be significant.) It was good for my diabetes as well, I was able to cut my insulin use by 30-40%.

Anyway, I know I need to get back on the diet. What is stopping me is gut-turning revulsion at what low-carb means for a vegetarian - eggs, cheese, tofu, and mushrooms. I can't keep it up. Heavy on the salads and veggies, of course, but I cannot continue to live on such bland protein sources.

So after fifteen long years of mostly very strict vegetarian eating, i'm considering ... eating fish.

I haven't actually done it yet ... the idea is still going around in my head, and there are the horror stories about what happens to the GI tract of long-term vegetarians who suddenly introduce meat into their systems. Plus, I don't even know how to cook fish ... I could probably manage a tuna salad.

Here's your chance to tell me what a horrible person I am for violating my own ethics in favor of vanity ...
