Nearly Vegitarian

Nearly vegitarian, that is how I am describing my diet to my friends. I say nearly because the decision isn't based on some philisophical decision, or moral objection but purely as a way to "control" the pace of my weight loss. Less meat = a more consistent loss of weight.

Nearly vegitarian because when I make a sandwich I occasionally add a few very thin slices of ham or turkey. I'll be manning the BBQ this weekend for my family who has been begging for BBQ chicken, will I partake? Yes. Will it be what I used to do (overeat)? No. I'll have one chicken breast grilled no sauce just seasoning, grilled polenta and veggies to round out the plate. I may swap the polenta and just go with grilled fresh corn on the cob.

Any way you look at it I still love meat, I just understand that to get healthy meat needs to be the side dish, not the main course. So that is what I mean be nearly vegitarian :)
