Do you think people NEED meat in their diet?

 I went to a naturopathic doctor. I am a vegetarian, but I haven't been eating healthy enough for a long time. For a vegetarian I sure as heck don't eat enough vegetables. The doctor told me that I need to eat meat, because I am not getting enough protien. Then she said that most people eat way too much meat, a serving size is only a few ounces. I saw an article online about how beef has 6.4g of protien per 100 calories, and brocolli has 11.1g of protien per 100 calories. What are your thoughts?

 If you are a vegetarian, what do you do to make sure you are getting enough protien?

I have good friends that are vegan. They eat nuts with most meals and lots of different kinds of beans. I am a big meat eater, but I think meat being a necessity in a diet is an opinion. As long as the proteins there, it shouldn't matter. I would increase veggie intake if I were you tho. There's so many benefits. Even if you have to find certain veggies that you love and just eat those. Is better than none at all.

Lol, I used to be like that too. I loved my steak and cheeseburgers.

I need meat esp when pregnant. My body just goes through carbs and veggies too fast. Although I do eat tons of fresh salads and broccoli is my fave food

I need meat. But what other people eat doesn't affect me at all.

However I can't imagine a life without meat.

Need means you'd die if you didn't have it.
