But I just wanted to throw in my two cents though that I've frozen out red meat and dairy for the most part for the last 8 months, and am feeling much healthier and more energetic, and I haven't gotten sick once. Your own mileage may vary, of course, but beans kick ass, most nuts other than peanuts are very good for you (wait for the Jbro joke), and chicken and fish are always there.
Steak sure is tasty, but I sure as hell don't want all the crap they feed cows with and inject cows with floating through my bloodstream. Plus, you can feed 9 times the amount of people with the grain used to feed a cow than the amount of people fed by that same cow itself after it ate all the damned grain.
[fn 1 -- check out the China Study, authors pored over tons of nutrition and health info in one of the largest health studies ever gathered, concluded that animal protein significantly contributes to increased likelihood of numerous cancer types. That's not even to mention the widely-accepted increased risk of heart disease. http://en.wikipedia....The_China_Study ]
