    I tried it.

    First, I do my groceries one pay at a time, and since the budget is tight, failure means I starve.

    So I do the shopping, get all the faux meat substitutes, and check out. The charming Wally World cashier comments, "Not too many MEN buy this stuff."

    After the ensuing panic of knowing my money expenditure for food just went to soy, I begin the program. I sell myself on doing this for a month, and evaluating weight loss, overall health, etc.

    Fake hot dogs suck. Fake chicken is abominable. Fake ribs are actually better than the real ones.

    After a month, I GAIN 2lbs., am noticably weaker, lost muscle mass, and feel all around ghey.

    Don't do it, lads.

    DUDE!!!:mad:

    I dig a little further, I find that this diet might increase estrogen levels.

    At the end of the 30 days, I hit up BK, get the double Whopper, and ate it in a daze, not even realizing it was gone.

    You could've gotten a BKVeggie at BK.

    BTW, what percent meat are your regular brand hot dog weiners, 30%?

    If that involves a chimp that once belonged to a strange little man, i don't think i'll be reading that pornject. :p

    Well done sir, well done.....

    But for real, you don't find that certain brands replicate some products better than others?

    In truth, it has been a looooooong time since i had a "meat" hot dog to compare to. Burger-wise, some of the veggie burgers are not good; some are outstanding (Huey's in Memphis). I have had friends test the BKVeggie & the veggie burgers at Huey's and some other products & most received favorable reviews from more omnivorous testers.



    BTW: Byproducts, Variety Meats
    "Frankfurter, Hot Dog, Wiener, or Bologna With Byproducts" or "With Variety Meats" are made according to the specifications for cooked and/or smoked sausages (see above), except they consist of not less than 15% of one or more kinds of raw skeletal muscle meat with raw meat byproducts. The byproducts (heart, kidney, or liver, for example) must be named with the derived species and be individually named in the ingredients statement.

    American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR): AICR Statement: Hot Dogs and Cancer Risk
    " •On the subject of processed meat (hot dogs, cold cuts, ham, etc.) and colon cancer, the collected evidence indicates that every 50 gram serving of processed meat (roughly equivalent to 1 hot dog) eaten per day increases colorectal cancer risk by 21 percent. (Note: this means that people who eat a hot dog every day have a 21 percent higher risk of colorectal cancer than if they never eat hot dogs.) "

    Want some colo-rectal cancer with that dog, FTMFL? :eek: :eek: :eek:
    I hope those cats are over-reacting.

    Okay, but I'm talking the stuff you make at home.

    As I said, the fake BBQ ribs are actually better than, say, a McRib sandwich.

    They can't do chicken, period. Mushy texture, no flavor no matter how you doctor it....

    For the home-prepped stuff, i prefer the "smart dogs" brand hot dogs & Garden Burger or Morningstarfarms stuff. I haven't tried the fake chicken; it might be an accurate representation and gag me out.

    Completely unlike chicken. Morningstar, I believe, made the ribs. Boca was close on the burgers.

    Still, all said, won't be trying this little stunt again.

    Well, if it is completely unlike chicken, maybe i will give the fake chicken a try.

    At least keep your palate open to such delights as Lemongrass Tofu at a good Vietnamese restaurant. It is 1.5 hours to the nearest Vietnamese restaurant from here; you can make it in 1.25 if the traffic is low.
