I started eating mostly vegetarian about a month ago.
No particular reason.
Meat just started grossing me out.
I WANTED to keep eating meat, but I couldn’t stomach in anymore.
I’ll throw in some fish every now and again.
But most meals are meat-free.
Not sure if my taste for it’ll ever come back.
I know this might sound weird, but making this decision almost made me feel like my masculinity was in question.
See, men are supposed to like meat. And lots of it.
We’re supposed to crave it, kill it, grill it, and eat it.
But how can you eat it when it turns your stomach just thinking about it?
Our functional health doctor, Dr. Lori, reminds us often that the body is really good at telling us what it needs and when.
It’s best to listen to the signals we’re hearing.
Right now, my body’s saying “no meat, bro,” so I’m choosing to listen.
It reminded me of a massive problem I’m seeing in the marketplace.
Entrepreneurs are force-feeding “meat” to their audience when all those folks want is a nice, big bowl of vegetables.
Or an Impossible Burger.
Or maybe just nothing at all.
But because they see others stuffing cooked corpse down the market’s throat, they follow suit.
Your market’s tastes are always changing.
Instead of force-feeding them with what you think they’re hungry for, stop for a minute and ask them what they’d like to eat.
