Adults are generally encouraged to get at least 2 1/2 hours of moderate-intensity activity (like brisk walking) each week, along with a couple days of muscle-strengthening activities. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers tips to get you started.

Dried beans and peas, lentils, enriched cereals, whole-grain products, dark leafy green vegetables, and dried fruit are great origins of iron. Because iron is not as quickly absorbed from plant sources, the suggested intake of iron for vegetarians is almost double that recommended for non-vegetarians. To help your body digest iron, eat foods rich in vitamin C, such as strawberries, citrus fruits, tomatoes, cabbage, and broccoli, at the same time as you are eating iron-containing foods.

This guide explains some simple dietary rules to follow, which are relevant for the majority of us, such as getting a minimum five portions of fruit and vegetables each day, including wholegrain and opting for lower fat, lower sugar vegan alternatives to dairy foods. However, the Vegan Plate, promoted by the Vegan Society, is arguably a more relevant example for those following a full-time vegan diet. It highlights the importance of beans and pulses as well as nuts and seeds, shows where calcium can be found in numerous plant-based foods, and emphasizes that getting enough vitamin B12, vitamin D, omega-3 fats and iodine is essential to maintaining good health.

People who eat a high amount of vegetables and fruit daily tend to have the best protection against weight gain as they age. Because plant-based foods like fresh veggies and fruit are very low in calories yet are high in terms of volume and therefore take up lots of room in your stomach, they are filling and keep you from over-eating. Plant‐based (or “mostly plant-based”) diets are tied to a lowered risk for obesity, lower BMI status and reduced complications related to obesity, such as heart problems or metabolic syndrome.

Several studies show that vegans benefit from lower blood sugar levels, higher insulin sensitivity and up to a 78% lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes than non-vegans. In addition, vegan diets reportedly lower blood sugar levels in diabetics up to 2.4 times more than diets recommended by the ADA, AHA and NCEP. Part of the advantage could be explained by the higher fiber intake, which may blunt the blood sugar response. A vegan diet's weight loss effects may further contribute to its ability to lower blood sugar levels.

Producing vegetarian food is more ecologically sustainable, and it reduces damage to the environment. Many people stop eating meat for ideological, ethical, or religious reasons. A study of 38,000 people showed that fish eaters, vegetarians, and vegans had a lower body mass index (BMI) than meat-eaters.But often, the focus is on health.

Omega-3 fatty acids, primarily those found in oily fish, can help maintain a healthy heart and reduce the risk of heart disease when eaten as part of a healthy diet.Sources of omega‐3 fatty acids suitable for vegans include: flaxseed (linseed) oil,rapeseed oil,soy oil and soy-based foods, such as tofu, walnuts. Evidence suggests that plant sources of omega‐3 fatty acids may not have the same benefits in reducing the risk of heart disease as those in oily fish. But if you follow a vegan diet, you can still look after your heart by eating at least 5 portions of a variety of fruit and vegetables every day, cutting down on food that is high in saturated fat, and watching how much salt you eat.

To lose weight or reap the benefits of a vegetarian diet, there’s no set number of meatless meals you need to eat each week, says Haynes. “But choosing more plant-based options more often has been shown to promote a wide variety of health benefits,” she says. “There's a movement called Meatless Mondays that has brought this idea to the attention of a wider audience. Starting with one day a week, one meal a day, then expanding as you feel comfortable can benefit anyone!”

Pay attention to ingredient lists, avoid products containing gelatin, rennet, and other animal products (excluding dairy and eggs). If you haven’t already, begin incorporating more whole grains, beans, legumes, tofu, nuts, and seeds into your diet. Once you feel comfortable to move forward you can start phasing out dairy, eggs, and honey. Feel free to do this all at once, one food group at a time, or as slowly as you need to. Slowly cut out animal products, starting with the easiest and leaving barrier foods to the end. Slowly lessen your consumption of animal products while simultaneously increasing the number of plant-based foods in your diet. Continue until you've eliminated all animal products from your diet.
