Thanks, I was wondering how people like you and shuripentu got on. I've heard the theory that your body can't digest meat properly after you haven't eaten it for a while, but I didn't have any trouble when I ate chicken by mistake a while back, so I wasn't sure whether the quantity of meat is significant. I've heard of another lapsed vegetarian who couldn't resist a pork pie in the fridge when he got home from the pub one night, although in that situation he might expect to be ill the following day.

I've only just seen this thread now and thought I'd comment on it. I don't recall having any digestive trouble when I realised that I didn't have a problem with killing and eating animals per se, and promptly treated myself to a plateful of free-range reindeer. I suspect the whole thing about enzymes is yet another half-baked urban legend - veg*n and other alternative diets seem to collect these like trading cards.
