Wa Alaikum al-salam

thanks for your question

There is a hadith from Imam Sadiq a.s from Imam Ali a.s

“you should eat meat because meat brings meat to body and whoever does not eat meat for forty days he would be ill-tempered and whoever gets ill-tempered recite Azan in his ears” (Wasa’il al-Shia, V.17, P26, H8). According to this Hadith not eating meat for 40 days will lead to bad manner and behaviors like anger etc.
