Am I a vegetarian? Absolutely not. Why? :) I love food. I love the variety. And before I become a rich and famous vegetarian, I want to know one of the greatest pleasures in life, and I mean here, eating different and forbidden dish. If anything, I have sinned against myself. There is the difference between a diverse and excessive eating. Gluttony is one of the seven deadly sins, while temperance is one of the seven heavenly virtues. Each virtue is its own reward and each sin has its own consequences. The sin of gluttony demands heavy price. "Social Sins" by Gandhi, include, among others: "Wealth without work, pleasure without consequence, commerce without morality, science without humanity".
I hope I have found a happy medium here. At the moment I am a semi-vegatarian. In the field of nutrition I use half measures. Life will show me the result of my actions and choices.

Am I a vegetarian? Absolutely not. Why not? :) Because I love food in all its _ varieties. Also, before I become a rich and famous vegetarian, I want to experience / indulge in / one of the greatest pleasures in life, and by that I mean _, eating different / unusual / unfamiliar / and /  forbidden / controversial / dishes. If anything, I believe that by restricting my diet, I would be sinning against myself. There is a difference between a diverse and an excessive diet. Gluttony is one of the seven deadly sins, while temperance is one of the seven heavenly virtues. Each virtue is its own reward and each sin has its own consequences. The sin of gluttony demands a heavy price. The "Social Sins" according to Gandhi, include, among others: "Wealth without work, pleasure without consequence, commerce without morality, science without humanity".

I hope I have found a happy medium here. At the moment I am a semi-vegetarian. In the field of nutrition I use half measures. Life will show me the result of my actions and choices.

Excellently written again! :-)

I  particularly like the sentence " In the field of nutrition, I use half measures" ;-)

I was not sure what you meant by " If anything, I have sinned against myself", as it is in the past tense, does this mean that you have been restricting your diet already? I have altered the sentence to mean that you would be denying yourself by restricting what food you ate now and in the future. I apologise if I am wrong :)

Are you planning to become a rich and famous vegetarian, after indulging in the wealth of the world's cuisine? ;-)

That, I find interesting ;)
