Meat tastes too good to become a vegetarian.

Many people who are now vegetarians once thought the same thing. However, they decided that an action does not become morally justified simply because they enjoy doing it, and they gradually became vegetarians. They decided that the inconvenience of a gradual transition to a new diet is relatively minor compared to the amount of animal suffering which they were thereby able to reduce.

For people who want to become vegetarians without having to give up the taste of meat, there are products such as veggie-burgers, veggie-sausages, and veggie-bacon. These products look and (depending on the brand) taste like meat, but are made entirely out of soy and other plant based ingredients.
