As humans we are not designed to eat meat.
As humans we have short fingernails and small, dull canine teeth. All true carnivores have sharp claws and large canine teeth that are capable of tearing flesh without the help of knives and forks.

Real carnivores’ jaws move only up and down, enabling them to tear chunks of flesh from their prey. Humans can move their jaws up and down and from side to side, and we also have flat molars (which carnivores lack), allowing us to grind up fruit and vegetables with our back teeth like herbivores do.

As it may seem a healthier lifestyle by eating foods that are rich in iron such as kale and spinach. By staying healthy by eating the correct food. Meat is actually not needed in the human diet.

You may not have stopped eating all animals but it is helping.

You only eat fish. Beef, pork, poultry aren't allowed, so by default you're contributing to not killing animals... seems pretty obvious.

Honestly, I prefer the scientific solutions to avoiding killing animals. Artificial meat has gone down from $10k/lb to $100/lb in a few years, hopefully we can just start growing steaks instead of raising animals for harvesting. Ironically, once we do that, chicken/turkey/cow/swine populations will dwindle because that's the only reason they exist.

But the key to eliminating killing animals for food is an APPEALING ALTERNATIVE to meat. If farmers have cheaper competition in the meat market, animal farming becomes less viable. Lab-grown meat will taste like meat, but not end a life. Soy... just doesn't cut it for most people.

As a side note, I think pescatarians at least realize the fact that humans need an abundance oils/vitamins that plants do not abundantly provide. IMO chicken/fish are perfectly fine to farm and eat as long as its humane, plus meat has been an important staple in human's diets for at least a hundred thousand years. Plus, you can't beat the simplicity and deliciousness of eggs in the morning.

I eat all types of meat, and see no problem with it. I fully understand if you want to stop eating meat in order to save animal's lives. In fact, I think it is a great way to show that you care about animals.
All that being said, I still eat meat, and have no intention of stopping.
Humans are not herbivores. We are omnivores, and, like all other omnivores, evolved on a diet rich with meat and non-meat. I'm not saying that we have to eat meat, but it is healthier to have meat in your diet.
I think that animals are inhumanely treated, but there isn't much I can do about it. Boycotting meat isn't going to help much, and I can't afford to only buy meat that is free-range. So to all you vegans out there... I'm gonna stick with my hamburger.
