Note that many processed vegan products found at the store ‐ such as vegan meat substitutes — are often loaded with sodium, fillers, additives, and other ingredients that may harm your health. Try to stick to mostly whole, unprocessed foods — and steer clear of mock meats and other highly processed vegan ingredients and premade meals. A balanced vegan diet should include a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, proteins, and healthy fats.

When you Axe meat from your diet, you may be swapping that chicken stir-fry for a falafel pita—and paying for it on the scale. "Don’t be a French fry vegetarian! Just because it fits your criteria of being fit for a vegetarian diet doesn’t mean it is healthy for you," says Esther Blum, R.D., author of Cave-women Do Not Get Fat. "Keep your carbohydrates whole food-based. [They] should not come in a package with more than five ingredients—unless they’re herbs and spices. " Reach for sweet potatoes, butternut squash, any winter squash, plantains, yucca, beans, or lentils versus white-flour carbohydrates like bread, muffins, bagels, Blum says. If you want tortillas, she likes the kind made with cassava and coconut flours.

To make sure you're eating enough protein and calories in general, don’t skimp on plants that offer amino acids and healthy fats. How much protein should you aim to eat each day? While it might be possible to get away with less, I personally think it’s best to divide your body weight in half and eat about that many grams of protein per day. Some of the best plant proteins include natto, Spirulina, Tempe, nutritional yeast, green peas, lentils, quinoa and amaranth.

One strong statement is the decision to stop eating meat. This is common among teens, who may decide to embrace vegetarianism in support of animal rights, for health reasons, or because friends are doing it. If it's done right, a meat-free diet can actually be a good choice for adolescents, especially considering that vegetarians often eat more of the foods that most teens do not get enough of — fruits and vegetables.

Each week double the number of meatless snacks you already enjoy, such as spaghetti with tomato sauce or vegetable stir-fry. Discover plans to include greens, such as spinach, kale, Swiss chard, and collards, in your daily meals. Take popular recipes and examine them without meat. For instance, cook vegetarian chili by leaving out the ground beef and adding an extra can of black beans. Or make fajitas applying extra‐firm tofu rather than chicken. You may be shocked to find that many dishes need only simple substitutions.

People do this all the time to lose weight. But eventually you will add those foods back in to your diet and the weight comes right on back. Then one day you realize your pants are getting too tight and you are feeling yucky about yourself. So you go on another diet. Yes, it is totally senseless, but you do it anyway! Why? Because you have no idea what else to do!

If the idea of becoming vegan appeals to you but you feel like you'll miss a certain food too much to commit 100% to the vegan lifestyle, then start the transition and leave that food until the end. Phase your barrier foods out in a very slow, controlled manner over a few weeks or even months. By this point, you might find that removing the food from your diet is a lot easier than you thought it would be! If for whatever reason you feel as though you just cannot commit to a 100% vegan diet because of a barrier food, that’s okay! Don't let that stop you from minimizing your intake of animal based products to whatever extent you can.

I have had plenty of clients who believed it was okay to eat unlimited amounts of plant‐based treats (think coconut milk ice cream and sweet potato chips). Plant-based frozen foods, desserts, and snacks can not only be high in calories, but they are often made with refined flour and added sugar, and stripped of nutrients and fiber. While they are fine as occasional treats, when consumed daily, they can pack on pounds. One study found that processed foods may decrease post-meal calorie burning by nearly 50% compared to whole foods. Trade processed plant foods for fresh snacks. Reach for in‐season fruit and dark chocolate to satisfy a sweet craving; and raw veggies with hummus or guacamole for a savory fix.

These guidelines are mostly for transitioning to a vegan diet as that tends to be the most difficult part of becoming vegan. It’s also important to learn about vegan alternatives for other products in your life, such as personal care items, clothing, shoes, and other household items. If you have the desire to become vegan but find yourself struggling with the idea of cravings or giving up a particular food, don’t worry, that’s completely normal! These are challenges, but they certainly don’t have to be barriers. Most vegans stop eating animal products for ethical reasons, not because they don’t enjoy the taste of them. It might sound silly but there's lots of cheese-loving vegans out there!
