Switching from a diet that’s heavy on meat to a diet that contains no meat at all – the vegan diet – can feel like a nearly impossible task for some people. While it might seem like a huge change in lifestyle, adapting to a vegan diet could be easier than you think if you do it the right way.

Many people that switch from eating meat to eating a vegan diet also worry about nutritional deficiencies. It’s possible to have nutritional deficiencies while on a vegan diet, but a little bit of knowledge about what foods you need to eat to maintain your health can go a long way.

Being vegan can seem difficult at first, but it can be done in a healthy way! If you ate a lot of meat and dairy foods high in saturated fat prior to switching, you may even see considerable health benefits when you switch to a vegan diet.

This article has some great advice for those just starting out, I especially like the part about making sure you're eating enough and not being afraid to eat larger portions. Feeling weak and fatigued at first is one of the most common complaints I've heard from new vegans and most of the time it's because they need to eat more! Don't be afraid to load up on fruits and veggies, they will keep you feeling fantastic. smiley.gif
