It is possible to become a vegetarian at once, but a gradual change may work better for two reasons: First, a gradual change is more likely to become a lifestyle and a long-term move and second, a sudden dietary change can affect some people's digestive system at first. Changes to the gut Microbiome may lead to temporary bloating, for example. It may also take longer for muscles to repair, without animal protein. Gradually replacing meat with more vegetables, fruits, legumes, such as beans and lentils, and whole grains, may reduce this impact. Another idea is to start with familiar meat-free foods, such as macaroni cheese and salad, before changing to new recipes and ingredients.

Although vegan diets are generally low in saturated fat, as a full-time vegan you may be missing out on the potent forms of heart-friendly omega-3 fats, known as EPA and DHA. We typically get these from fish and seafood, although sea vegetables such as kelp and certain micro-algae supplements can make a useful contribution. It’s also a good idea to include plenty of nuts, seeds and their oils especially walnut, flaxseed, hemp and rapeseed.

The key is to choose carbohydrates that produce a steady rise in blood sugar, which means passing on the sugary 'white' foods and going for high-fiber wholegrain, which help you manage those afternoon munchies.

Many people I talk to eat their largest meal in the evening, when they are the least active. A smarter strategy is to eat larger meals earlier, so they fuel your most active hours of the day. Skimping all day and gorging at night is a recipe for weight gain, or at least preventing weight loss-even if you are vegan. Try switching to evening meals that are filling but but light, such as sautéed veggies and chickpeas over a bed of greens and spaghetti squash; or a broth-based veggie and white bean soup with a drizzle of EVOO.
