    How to Switch to a Vegetarian Diet and Stick to it?

    Just go slowly, you can try it for two weeks. You may cave in and eat something that is not veggie, but it takes time and do not put pressure on yourself, it is a lifestyle change. I would get some books and read up on it. You have to educate yourself. 

    Where do you live? You can always find restruants and shops that are for vegetarian/ vegan.

    Good luck and dont give up. If you fall just get back up, and do not listen to the negative, listen to how your body is feeling ( I sound like a hippie )

    I'd say try having veggie days at first.  Making the effort once or twice a week soon becomes second nature and then you find you start choosing vegetarian foods without thinking about it.

    I agree with both Hayley & DearBandit to take it slow, especially if you are a regular meat eater. I would recommend replacing one meal a day and working your way up to one day a week.

    A vegan diet while eliminating processed food and sugar may be one of the best steps toward rejuvenation. My wife is a 46 year old vegan who has the body and constitution of a 20 something year old. When she made the decision to go from vegetarian to vegan she dropped 20 lbs and went from a size 12 to a size 4. Initially, she became a vegetarian for animal rights reasons. Once she took the plunge into veganism, her metabolism improved, her skin cleared up, and her mood became markedly brighter. read more
