It depends on the individual. Some veg*ans have digestive problems and avoid a lot of whole grains, and some veg*ans aren't big fans of fruits and vegetables, and don't eat many of them.

If you're generally healthy and like fruits and vegetables (or are willing to experiment with strange/exotic fruits and vegetables you wouldn't normally eat), then the best diet would be a good balance of everything.

I'm glad to see you seriously considering vegetarianism!

Thanks for the welcomes.

Is there anything I should know before diving into a vegan diet?

Any certain vegetables, fruits and nuts I should try to balance my diet with?

I've read dark leafy greens, dark colored vegetables and low-sugar fruits.

Suggestions appreciated.

Here's some sites on vegan nutrition..

Hopefully they will help, esp. the last site!
Thanks for the links. I've been leaning more towards completely vegan.

Does anyone know if this is true? http://www.vivavegie.org/vvi/vva/vvi23/milkpcrm.html

Here is a picture of the vegan food pyramid. It should represent the heathiest diet for most people, but every individual reacts differently to diets, so eat what you think is best for you.
Thanks. How big is one serving?

8 cups of water or more seems like an awful lot. I read on (I think it was) snopes.com that 5 is generally healthy unless you're doing a lot of physical activity. Trying to make a healthy diet seems like a big headache at times.
